Warm Bodies is the tale of a zombie named R. While R still craves brains he is quite different from most zombie stories, R has feels emotions and can speak. When he eats the brain of a teenage boy he gets the memories and feelings including the intense feelings for his girlfriend Julie. R decides he will protect Julie and keep her safe.
I have to admit starting this book I had to catch myself from thinking zombies can’t do this or that. Once I convinced myself this is a work of fiction and it’s really a good thing to think outside the box and have a completely different type of zombie novel I really began to enjoy this read.
The story is told from the perspective of R the zombie. All of his thoughts make him seem completely human and as he points out in the story, he is human, he’s just an undead human. The more R is with Julie the more I liked him. I really didn’t think I’d be the fan of a brain eating zombie but this book changed that.
Overall, great read that is different from the normal zombie tale.
