#218 - "Warm Bodies" by Isaac Marion

Title: Warm Bodies
Author: Isaac Marion

'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...
My rating: 4.5 of 5
My thoughts on the book:
I was actually surprised how much I liked this book! Definitely different! It starts funny, yet at the same time it's sad and a little gory, but you can't help but enjoy it & start loving R & cheer for him & Julie! Definitely great book, with interesting story, that I couldn't put it down & I highly recommend it! I'll definitely re-read it again in the future!
