Book Review: Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

I am using this book for the Eclectic Reader Challenge (urban fantasy), Dystopia Challenge, Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge, 52 Books in 52 Weeks, and Summer 2013 Book Challenge (freebie).

Summary from Goodreads: ‘R’ is a zombie. He has no name, no memories and no pulse, but he has dreams. He is a little different from his fellow Dead. Amongst the ruins of an abandoned city, R meets a girl. Her name is Julie and she is the opposite of everything he knows – warm and bright and very much alive, she is a blast of colour in a dreary grey landscape. For reasons he can’t understand, R chooses to save Julie instead of eating her, and a tense yet strangely tender relationship begins. This has never happened before. It breaks the rules and defies logic, but R is no longer content with life in the grave. He wants to breathe again, he wants to live, and Julie wants to help him. But their grim, rotting world won’t be changed without a fight…

Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars. I watched the movie when it came put in theaters, which was a mistake in this case. Couldn’t get that into the book in the beginning, but it was well-written and an interesting story. Lesson learned: Always read the book first!

4-stars
