Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion Book Review

R is having a no-life crisis—he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he is a little different from his fellow Dead. He may occasionally eat people, but he’d rather be riding abandoned airport escalators, listening to Sinatra in the cozy 747 he calls home, or collecting souvenirs from the ruins of civilization.

And then he meets a girl.

First as his captive, then his reluctant guest, Julie is a blast of living color in R’s gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesn’t want to eat this girl—although she looks delicious—he wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they can’t imagine, and their hopeless world won’t change without a fight.

On February 1st, 2013 Warm Bodies is coming to the big screen! Watch the trailer after my review.

My thoughts: I rate this book 5 out 5 stars! 

I absolutely loved this book! I don't read many Zombie books but have seen my share of movies. This is my favorite Zombie in the world! Isaac Marion writes the book from the mind of R, a different kind of Zombie. He actually cares, feels, and talks more than 2 words. I feel in love with R and Julie's characters and love how they interact and learn to care for each other. The story line ropes you in from the beginning with quirky Zombie humor and keeps you hanging on to find out what with happen to Julie and following R's transformation. 

A couple quotes I love from the beginning of the book are "My friend 'M' says the irony of being a zombie is that everything is funny, but you can't smile, because your lips have rotted off. " and "None of us are particularly attractive, but death has been kinder to me than some. I'm still in the early stages of decay." This is a different kind of Zombie book where the zombies are not all bad, giving a different take on brain eating zombies.

This is a great romance with lots of Zombie action. If you are looking for a date night movie this weekend I would highly suggest Warm Bodies after reading the book. I can't wait to see the movie!
