Zombie Survivla Guide by: Max Brooks

This book starts out very funny and it is, up until your realize Max Brooks is serious. Then it gets weird and a little pathetic. It seems Brooks considers zombies an honest threat to humanity. I would say you should read this for at least some laughs, and if nothing else you'll learn to how to survive the (highly unlikely) zombie apocalypse.

The Sun Alos Rises by: Ernest Hemingway

The book is about a group of people from the World War I period that are veterans. It takes place in a European setting. The group centrally focuses on characters (many of them) and moral values. A lot can be learned from this book because of the way Ernest Hemingway, such as the way war affects people. (in this case, the main character)
