‘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…

I got intrigued about reading Warm Bodies when I saw its movie trailer. And since I mostly prefer reading the book before seeing the adaptation, I decided to get a copy of myself and I’m glad I did. I’m not much of a fan when it comes to zombies but I cannot deny that I liked Isaac Marion‘s work! 🙂 Here’s my say on it:
Hmm hey this is a breath of fresh air from Goosebumps’ monster stories! 😛 But seriously, even if it’s too cheesy to think that zombies can actually fall in love with a “living” like R or be one of the living, this craze made this story feel almost real.
R started the cure and became the cure after the day they hunted Perry’s team and met Julie. He needed to eat Perry’s brain because his corpse system has to digest it. This time he thought this brain is kinda special. He nibbled instead of swallowed and saved bits of it until he savored the memories. It made him tick. Changed him.
The whole transformation is what will make you go through the story and enjoy it! 🙂 Isaac Marion has done a great job in giving this zombie novel a fun and sweet twist to make the impossible possible.
Love of Characters
R is totally a sweetheart and so as Perry.
Julie’s a firework. She’ll make even a corpse like R spark.
Nora’s the most openhearted friend and so as M.
Rosy (Col. Rosso) is the best leader.
Boneys are losers!
