This is one case where the audiobook is far superior to reading it, P2. It has real actors doing it and it's just more... interesting. I think it's a bit flat just reading the text but that is me.

The movie should be good, though. It's more a screenplay with ideas than a book in a lot of ways.

I haven't actually read the book, but I have listened to the audiobook twice! The first time was when I was driving cross country.

What I've seen of the screenplay loses what the book had - it's Pitt trying to STOP the epidemic, rather than dealing and witnessing the aftermath.

hrm. Well the whole book is written after the fact so I guess they had to make it.... ok, I'm not feeling well and my vocabulary has gone, "as it happens". lol

I hope they don't change it too much but there are a lot of different story lines in the book, it would be difficult to do them all.

I demand that you feel better. (Also do not become a zombie.)

Our oldest daughter appears to have succumbed to the Z-virus.

No, I don't know why she's doing zombie makeup. I can only speculate that she has somehow become infected with my weirdness as well.
