Review: Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
The last four books, I think, that I have read have been books I have liked, but not loved. They weren't really anything special. And I wanted to read something amazing. With a good romance. Then I remembered that I had Warm Bodies, and had not read it yet. So I picked it up. And first, that cover is just stunning. I, at least, loves it :) I payed a lot of money for the book, but it was so worth it.
The main character in this book, "R", is a zombie. He starts out as an almost regular zombie. But he is a bit different from the others. I can talk in short sentences; and he cares about things. Like killing. He isn't that comfortable with it, but he still does it; otherwise he would die.
Then he and a group of other zombies goes out hunting for food. For the Living. Which they find, and R kills someone else. But it isn't just a regular person whose brain he's eating. It's the Perry, the boyfriend of Julie. And R is getting his memories. Which hasn't happened before while eating brain. Hih.
Because of that, R notices Julie there. And he doesn't want to kill her, and he doesn't want anyone else to kill her either. Thus starting their journey together. Which I will not talk about; considering this is a short book, and I would rather you read it for yourself :D Because it is awesome.
R is an amazing character. I loved that this story is from his POV. He changes a lot through this book, especially at the end. Which I loved so much. Anyway, R is an kind and sweet person. Well, he tries his best to be so. And I just adored him. Even though he was a zombie. A cute one, though :D
R has a best friend; M. And M is a great character as well. A bit dumb, but then, he is a zombie ;) And I liked him that way, anyway. He is a great friend for R to have. And he changes too. Sort of. They have a lot of zombies at the airport where they live, and I liked a few of them. Like the kids. But some I didn't like. Like the Boneys. Didn't like those much. But they were a great plot :D
I also really liked Julie. She curses a lot, but I didn't mind :) She is really kind and caring, and she has had a hard life. But she's still alive, so that's something ;p She also has a best friend; Nora. I liked her too. For the most part :) One I didn't like though, was Perry. He seemed like a douche. But he wasn't always that, so I can't really hate him that much ;p
Anyway, this book has stunning writing, and amazing characters. It has an incredible plot, and I really liked that. Although I felt like the book was too short. Wish there was more :) But, there is romance in this book. Not very much, but I loved it. And I also loved the end of this book. It is final, but there could easily be a sequel. Which I hope for very much :)
You really need to read this book if you haven't yet. It will be worth it ;)
