“Some zombies like to lurch about groaning for brains. Some zombies like to ride the escalators, listen to Frank Sinatra, and daydream about their past life. That's R, a zombie who has forgotten most of his life, even most of his name. R is of the mobile damned shambling around a ruined Earth, living in a hive of the undead in an abandoned airport. He sometimes goes into the remains of civilization to find someone to nibble on. Brains are especially fun, because eating them allows the diner to experience the memories of the dined-upon. It adds a bit of color to the zombies' dreary, grey not-lives. But when one young man dies saving his girlfriend's life and R munches down on his memories of growing up with her, R unexpectedly develops a crush -- and instead of turning her into a second course, he totes her home and hides her from his moribund brethren. Such is the beginning of Warm Bodies, a novel of the living and the damned, and the bridge between them. I checked it out not because I like zombies, but because a friend of mine -- a mature, knows-how-to-manage-her-time-well friend -- stayed up all night reading it. While the premise intrigued me, the humor and earnestness of a zombie yearning for more, even love, snookered me completely. I read it in one sitting, as it's the kind of novel that doesn't let you go away: it continues to rise in intensity until the very end.”smellincoffee wrote this review Monday, June 24, 2013.

“A zombie book that doesn't really read like a zombie book. For one thing, it is told from R's perspective, which makes it really unique. It's also not a cheesy, messy romantic novel. It's just... warm and nice. ”Phoebe L wrote this review Monday, June 24, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“It was just today at 12 that I began to wolf down the novel, “Warm Bodies” in a ravenous way. Right now the darkness has enveloped my neighborhood with only the sound of my keyboards being pressed to form a book review. It starts in a very unusual fashion: “I am dead, but it’s not so bad”. So this zombie-dude who doesn’t even remember his first name called R fells in love with Julie, a human. The two characters live in a hopeless world where they will make an end to the plague. A novel created to prove the power of love!
I guess the force that drove me to keep this reading pace was because of my great vertical extent of expectation. But my shoulder slummed with disappointment. I had all sorts of imaginations in my mind of the resolutions that R and Julie will find and believed it would overwhelm the readers like a big bang. Everything was left in vain. Followed by the death of Julie’s dad, the Bourneys wander off with no reason and R is suddenly alive. I was momentarily speechless. Other than the miserable ending, the descriptions used were flawless and vivid. The words bonded together built deeper meanings.
I’d recommend teenagers especially to my friends!”
