Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion Review

Title: Warm Bodies
Author: Isaac Marion
ISBN: 1439192324
Publisher: Atria/Emily Bestler Books

Yes, I finished reading Warm Bodies in preparation for the film coming out this February. The trailer looks fun and I thought why not read the book first. I got the book around winter time and was reading it steadily.

About: A zombie guy falling in love with a human girl which may possibly turn him back to a human again.

My thoughts:

Like always I'll try my best to keep it spoiler free. Warm Bodies was a good book. It has a premise that I haven't heard of before. R and Julie were a great couple. Their personal struggles and the star crossed lover idea was genius. You get to see R evolve and having more personalities than a typical brain eating zombie. Julie's character had more depth as you read about her back story. M was just hilarious. The dark and bits of goriness in this book gets counter balance with some light and happy moment. The story progress pretty  fast and it's pretty cool to hear the opinion from a zombie's perspective. My biggest question for this book was R's love for Julie legitimately his own or was it Julie's dead boyfriend's feeling. This book answers it well. Overall, Warm Bodies was an interesting and fun read. It focused more on R and Julie's relationship and not as gruesome as a typical zombie books. I'm curious to see what Isaac Marion will do with his next book.
