Overly intellectualized babble
Not much to say. A few of the essays are interesting but most just fall flat. The reader who I suspect as far more potential than these essays allow him to show, is okay. Worth your time if it is a free option but don't waste a credit or a dollar on it. Unless you are a rabid fan and just have to have everything Zombie. World War Z and We're Alive Lock Down would be better choices.
