R doesn’t remember his name – none of his fellow Dead do.
They don’t remember much of anything about their former lives, actually.
He lives with a large hive of zombies in an abandoned airport, riding the conveyor belt, listening to Sinatra and calling an old 747 his home.
Each day passes by in a blur.
Then during a hunt, he meets a girl. A living girl – named Julie.
Against all reason, instead of snacking on her brain, R takes Julie captive – but she becomes his hesitant guest.
For some reason, R doesn’t want to eat Julie (well, most of the time) – he wants to protect her and try to talk to her (extremely difficult for zombies).
Something is changing…
Warm Bodies was INCREDIBLE!!!
I was recommended it and I am so glad!
Warm Bodies has moments that are shocking, sometimes gory, yet also surprisingly humorous, incredibly original and undeniably likable.
It’s touching, dark and strangely romantic!
Keep in mind – I am not a fan of zombies. To some, to say those words is sacrilege – but it’s the truth.
Yet, Warm Bodies is a revelation! It, in my opinion, can be enjoyed by those who are zombie fans and those that aren’t.
This is a completely new story – told from a zombie’s perspective! – and is absolutely absorbing, twisted, edgy and full of hope.
It’s sort of like a weird new version of Beauty & the Beast with stunning parallels between the zombies and humans – so heartpoundingly good, astoundingly well-written – I got teary eyes a few times by how deeply effecting it was.
Warm Bodies was an amazing, unique read that will stay with me!
Strongly, strongly recommended!
