Warm Bodies - Isaac Marion
A zombie who yearns for a better life ends up falling in love—with a human—in this astonishingly original debut novel.
R is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He doesn’t enjoy killing people; he enjoys riding escalators and listening to Frank Sinatra. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.
Not just another zombie novel, Warm Bodies is funny, scary, and deeply moving.
I thought that this book was going to be another one of those horribly over done paranormal romances... Boy, was I wrong! I was very skeptical in starting this book. Judging by the movie's trailer, I thought that it would be sappy and there would be a lot of mushy love moments. I was both happily and unhappily suprised when I realized that this wasn't going to be one of those books. Warm Bodies was bruitally honest and funny. I couldn't believe that one person could make me I feel so much and then make me burst out laughing with the next sentence. The characters in this book were fantastically written and the twist on the zombies was unique to me, which made Warm Bodies all the more surprising. I loved every second of reading this book and I highly recommend reading it if you haven't already. Please, pick up this book if you have any interest in zombies or in the workings of the world in general. You definitely won't regret it.
