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.
Thanks to NetGalley, I was able to finally read Warm Bodies! I must admit, I didn’t expect to enjoy this novel as much as I did. The premise seemed too silly to actually serve as anything other than a good source of humour. I was wrong! I love all things horror, zombies, vampires—everything, and this story was a creative take on the classic zombie tale.
Warm Bodies, follows the loveable undead R. R is unlike any other zombie in literature. R thinks deeply, he feels and he tries to be human. His narration was excellent, a refreshing view point for a zombie novel.
Hoping the movie is just as good.
