Synopsis (from Goodreads):
A zombie who yearns for a better life ends up falling in love—with a human—in this astonishingly original debut novel.

R is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He doesn’t enjoy killing people; he enjoys riding escalators and listening to Frank Sinatra. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.

Not just another zombie novel, Warm Bodies is funny, scary, and deeply moving.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First off, I need to state just how much I loved this book.
WARM BODIES is the story of R, a zombie, and Julie, a living girl. What makes the story great is that it’s told in the zombie’s point of view. WARM BODIES is a different kind of zombie novel and I think that’s what makes it so fantastic. From the opening line until the very last line, you will find yourself hooked.

R lives in an airport full of zombies like him. During a feeding trip to the nearby stadium, everything changes when R kills Perry. When the zombies eat the living’s brains, they are able to view their memories, to relive them in a way. After R kills Perry, he finds himself wanting to save Julie. He doesn’t understand why, but he needs to protect her.

That’s when the story really begins to pick up. A zombie wanting to save a living girl? Yep. And while it might seem strange, it works in WARM BODIES. Julie and R ignite a change a world that’s been destroyed; they ignite hope for the future. Isaac Marion does a fantastic job of making you care. You want R and Julie to succeed, even though their relationship is ‘strange’.

If you haven’t read WARM BODIES yet, you need to.
