Z takes place in the future when zombies actually existed in the past. The main character Josh and his friend Firecracker are both addicted to a virtual reality video game where you can play against zombies and kill them. Josh still plays it even though his mother doesn’t want him to. Then one day Josh gets a chance to play an IRL game (in real life) he jumps at the chance and says yes to the offer. When players, as well as his best friend, go missing he soon finds out that it isn’t all that fun to play this game and uncovers a plot to make money by turning people into zombies.
Z is an amazing book. It has love, tragedy, and sorrow. If you love zombie books and suspense then this is a book for you. If you are creeped out by zombies or by explicit details of body parts that have been ripped off then this is not a book for you. I personally loved this book and would recommend the book to any of my friends. Overall I would give this book 5 stars.
