Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

“I want to change my punctuation. I long for exclamation marks, but I’m drowning in ellipses.”
― Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies

My Thoughts:

What I Loved: Warm Bodies is written with the main character, R as the narrator. As a zombie, he feels a bit different from the other zombies. He is more self-aware and seems to be having feelings. It makes a really interesting perspective and it was my favorite piece of this book.

How I Felt: This book was interesting and kept my attention. It is the first book in a series, but I haven’t yet read the second one. The struggle R goes through with his feelings was very captivating and I felt it was the thing that kept me reading this book. The love story was secondary for me. It was interesting, but I loved the way the author wrote the zombie’s thoughts and feelings. Isaac Marion writing is beautiful and was a major bonus in this story.

“In my mind I am eloquent; I can climb intricate scaffolds of words to reach the highest cathedral ceilings and paint my thoughts. But when I open my mouth, everything collapses.”
― Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies

To Read or Not To Read: This is a YA novel and is perfect for romance sci-fi junkies. If you enjoy the post-apocalyptic YA stories, it’s a good book for you! If you are looking for a traditional zombie-eating-brains kind of story, you should move along…this one isn’t for you.

What’s This Book About Anyway?

R is a zombie, going about his zombie-day eating humans and living in his 747 at the airport. He doesn’t remember anything about his before-life and he’s pretty much just, a zombie.

He meets Julie and he can’t understand why, but he doesn’t want to eat her. He takes her captive and she begins to change his life. She brings something new out of him that he’s never felt before.

Julie and R live in a world where zombies are bad…people kill zombies or zombies eat people. What if though, zombies could be something a bit different given the chance?
