‘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 out of 5 stars

My Review

This book is a zombie love story. How original is that? It had a little bit of gore, and a lot of young romance. It kept me very entertained. I watched the movie after reading it and it changed my opinion slightly. The movie cut out some things from the book, and thinking back, those things (Zombie Marriage, um what?) were actually pretty dumb. Overall it was a good quick read, and an original story, but I don’t think I would read it again or read any other stories in the series.

He began writing in high school and self-published three novels before finally breaking through with Warm Bodies. He currently splits his time between writing more novels, playing obscure instruments in obscure bands, and exploring the country in his 1977 GMC motorhome.
