Review: Warm Bodies

Warm Bodies
Isaac Marion
 Atria/Emily Bestler Books
From Goodreads: R is having a no-life crisis--he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he is a little different from his fellow Dead. He may occasionally eat people, but he’d rather be riding abandoned airport escalators, listening to Sinatra in the cozy 747 he calls home, or collecting souvenirs from the ruins of civilization.

And then he meets a girl.

First as his captive, then his reluctant guest, Julie is a blast of living color in R’s gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesn't want to eat this girl--although she looks delicious--he wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they can’t imagine, and their hopeless world won’t change without a fight.
My Review: First off let me say I am going to say a lot if things you never heard about zombies before. That being said I want to express my pleasure in reading this book. This book is such a heart warming tale that I did not want to put it down. Mr. Marion created a zombie that is an amazing character that you cheer for and want to survive. I will never look at a zombie story the same way again. I have read zombie books before and this unique take to see the story through the zombies eyes was refreshing and interesting. Zombies are usually mindless creatures who kill everything and everyone on sight but this was a breath of fresh air in a pair of dead lungs. I loved this book and will read the sequel when it becomes available. I hope it is soon .
