Warm Bodies

Title: Warm Bodies
Author: Isaac Marion

Book Description: R is a young man with an existential crisis - he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something else something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, no identity and no pulse but he has dreams.
After experiencing a teenage boy's memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and strangely sweet relationship with the victim's human girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His decision to protect her has transform not only R but also his fellow Dead and perhaps their whole lifeless world.
Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.

My Review:  I totally adorned this book, at first before the movie came out I didn't want to read this. I was like another twilight ewwww what are they going to do give zombies glittery skin too. But after finishing this book in practically one night I can say that I enjoyed every word printed in this book. The relationship between R and Perry is strange. To where R starts to like like him a bit... like Perry was haunting R to protect Julie. And the relationship between the zombies and Julie was great. And I was glad that the romance wasn't to thick in this book- and the story was just perfect. I'm looking forward to more from Isaac Marion... hopefully soon!

Rating: 5  and a
