1: Warm Bodies: A Novel

Isaac Marion
R is a young man with an existential crisis--he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, noidentity, and no pulse, but he has dreams.After experiencing a teenage boy's memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and stragely sweet relationship with the victim's human girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His decision to protect her will transform not only R, but his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world. Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.

I'll start off by saying that this is the first "popular" book I've read this year that has actually lived up to its hype, in my opinion. For me, it was a quick, easy, lighthearted read, but I really enjoyed it all the way through.

I can't think of a word to describe most of the book other than simply adorable, which is kind of an odd thing to say about a book centered around zombies.

I really love all of the humor involved, it was nice to take a break and read a book that didn't take itself so seriously.

I checked out the movie trailer on youtube, and the movie seems like it will be pretty cheesy and hilarious, so I'll probably check that out some time in the future.
