    One thought on “Warm Bodies”

    1. Ten Reasons to Read WARM BODIES1. It is a zombie book. But not like that. In the spirit of honesty, I had this book as an advanced review copy for literally months before I picked it up. It had glowing reviews from Stephanie Meyer, so I figured it couldn’t be that gross, and a glowing quote from Audrey Niffeneggar, so I figured it had to be well-written. But . . . zombies. Hopeless gore. I have a pretty strict disinterest in zombies that I break only for Carrie Ryan’s books. I’m not going [...]

    2. The protagonist of Warm Bodies is R, a zombie who cannot remember his name beyond that single letter. He is verbose compared to other zombies, although his main recreation is still riding escalators around the airport in which he lives. I kind of felt like the escalator riding was a shout out to Dawn of the Dead and it made me happy. The first few chapters of the book are the strongest parts of the book. I think they must have been polished over and over again and they contrast the rest of the b [...]

    3. What makes us human? Is it merely a collection of living flesh and tissue and bone, or is it also consciousness and memory and feeling? R, the young zombie who narrates this novel, isn't really sure. But after meeting Julie, a human girl he impulsively saves and hides away in an abandoned plane, he begins to experience thoughts and feelings that he'd forgotten he'd ever had.Warm Bodies is a wistful love story that is creepy, sad, sweet, and disturbing in equal measure. The notion that it is poss [...]

    4. Made the list forBest Badass Zombie Booksdassbookreviews/the-bestLessons learned from R (who happens to be a zombie)1. Sometimes you are up, and sometimes you are down. That is until the power goes out and you are stuck. 2. Freaking out is not going to help, instead get married! 3. Sometimes a little brain goes a long way, unless of course you just ate the last of it, and then you are so screwed.4. It is not our words but our actions that speak loudest regarding who we are.5. A name is just that [...]

    5. I finished this book awhile ago, but I've been avoiding writing my review. The only reason I can think of is that I really don't want my first read glow to go away. You know that time after you read a really spectacular book when you're just sitting around, thinking about how wonderful it was and going over passages you loved? I think I've been doing that for two weeks now. Every time I think about Warm Bodies, I wonder at how good it was.Warm Bodies follows R, a zombie unlike those we normally [...]

    6. What an entertaining delight! I first heard of this book through the movie trailer. I was very skeptical about this, yet oddly curious at the same time. A zombie who falls in love. I did not know what to expect getting into this. What I ended up experiencing was a story like no other. 'R' is a zombie with personality. Not very common, right? Even the other zombies think he is odd. He longs for memoriesr life. When he eats the brain of a young man named Perry and saving a human girl, things begin [...]

    7. 4.5 stars. Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature:In Warm Bodies (2010), our world has been overrun by the zombies, and the few humans who are left are fighting a rearguard action. They huddle in walled enclosures, sending out occasional armed expeditions for food and supplies. Regular school classes have fallen by the wayside, replaced by classes and demonstrations on how to best kill a zombie permanently (head shots).R is a zombie who doesn’t remember his past life, except that his [...]

    8. This is not a young adult novel.I mean, it is about a young adultish human and zombie who fall in love and set about to change the world with love. But this is not a young adult novel.It has themes of young love and disaffected youth and hopeful new beginnings but this is not a young adult novel, people!Regardless of what it is, it’s a pretty good novel, but I have a confession. This is going to translate in people’s minds as me being simplistic and unable to handle the deeper, more complica [...]

    9. This was a big surprise, though not entirely a pleasant one.Try imagining the most disgusting relationship in the history of mankind. Are you done yet? Need some help?(view spoiler)[[image error] (hide spoiler)]Now multiply that feeling of disgust by ten. Or even better, by a hundred. Oookay. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling pretty nauseous here. If you’ve got it, try thinking of a way to make that feeling and that relationship adorable. You heard me! Adorable. I thought it was impo [...]

    10. I was quite skeptical, as well as intrigued, when I was sent "Warm Bodies" to review. I would never have imagined putting "zombie" and "romance" in the same sentence. I assumed the putrid decomposition of flesh and the eating of brains would have been a bit of a turn off.After reading the first page I didn't know whether I would be able to take this book seriously: a zombie romance? And with quotes like these"My friend 'M' says thie irony of being a zombie is that everything is funny, but you ca [...]

    11. With the new season of The Walking Dead back on tonight, I thought I'd go back and take a look at some killer (hah) zombie fiction. The closest book to the show Walking Dead that I've read is The First Days, so if you're needing more of that gory, survivalist-type of zombie book, I'd check that one out.This book, however, is fresh in my mind due to the author himself making some recent comments that he's not altogether thrilled about some book stores shelving his book as Young Adult instead of A [...]

    12. I read this book to complete the #TBRTakedown challenge of reading a book outside my comfort zone. I've never been into zombie movies and until this book, I've never read any books with zombies. Overall, I just thought this book was okay Some parts really grossed me out Parts of it seemed rushed and like we didn't get to learn a lot about the world Or there just wasn't enough world building I suppose I did think it was interesting and I liked the changes the main character, R, went through If yo [...]

    13. **SPOILER ALERT**I so wanted to like this. I read the first half very quickly and enjoyed it; I was curious to see where it was going to go. I found it initially an interesting concept - zombie as not a mindless entity. It was a little confusing with Perry, but I did appreciate the idea that zombies crave and eat the brain at least in part to relive memories. That was a new twist, for sure. As soon as I realized where the author was going with the plot, though, I started to lose interest. I mean [...]

    14. I fell in love with a zombie. There, I said it out loud and I’m not embarrassed. Isaac Marion’s novel, Warm Bodies, is a romance. Yes, a zombie romance! Now before you all get grossed out on me, hear me out. In this author’s post-zombie apocalypse world, you first meet R. R isn’t your typical zombie that shuffles around mumbling “Braaaaaiiiiiiinnnnnnssss!” until he stumbles upon his next meal. You step right into R’s shoes. In this world, zombies are dead (of course), and they are [...]

    15. R and Julie’s story is probably the strangest, creepiest, yet sweetest and most hopeful thing I’ve come across in ages. You see, WARM BODIES is a zombie romance, literally. Instead of the expected survivors falling for each other given the end of days shtick, we have an actual zombie love story. The concept had me questioning would I buy it? Or better yet, would Julie? Even if the background was not as clearly explained as I want it to be, MAN, would I like to pick the brain of the person be [...]

    16. Update: Just saw movie trailer.i laughed out loudd squealed. Here is the link ---> youtu/qrI8YIZsBokHOLY. MOTHER. OF. ALL. THAT. IS. GORGEOUS.Could any amount of my insignificant words fully encompass the greatness of this book? The answer here is no, no because the words printed on each copy of Warm Bodies are already tuned to a vast perfection greater than the sky itself. Isaac MarionI applaud you, I give you ten million standing ovations, I declare you to be a master of words, an enchanter [...]

    17. A likable premise with some genuinely funny material, Warm Bodies is clever but still pinned down under the predictable tropes of the zombie subgenre. It's a good story and one of few that actually speaks from a zombie's perspective (except perhaps The Girl with All the Gifts), but it starts to drag on and get old really quickly.

    18. 4 1/2 stars.I only read this book because I was expecting blood, gore and mild necrophilia.Instead, I got a beautifully poetic book full of immaculately developed characters and gorgeous prose that demolished the well-worn cliches of zombie literature and everything I thought I knew about those old shufflers. Man I hate it when I don't get what I want. Pfft.

    19. finished and I loved it!!I'm so freakin excited to be starting this!!! Anyone who knows me well, knows that I have a love for all things zombies. So when my sis told me about a zombie romance, I said hell yeah I need to read this!!! I'm ready for some Zombie love!! Buddy read with Marta, Brenda and Rosanna! **********************************************************Can't wait to meet the very interesting and very dead "R"

    20. I'm sorry I can't properly introduce myself, but I don't have a name any more. Hardly any of us do. We lose them like car keys, forget them like anniversaries. Mine might have started with an 'R', but that's all I have for now.None of us are particularly attractive, but death has been kinder to me than some. I'm still in the early stages of decay. Just the grey skin, the unpleasant smell, the dark circles under my eyes. I could almost pass for a Living man in need of a vacation.Isaac Marion's de [...]

    21. I used to avoid any zombie movies or novels before reading Warm Bodies Well I still believe zombies are creepy but this book shook my thoughts upside down. This book taught us about being human. Humans are the only living species in the Homo genus, a human body is constructed of flesh and bone with warm blood flowing through our artery and vein, our heart beats at 60/RR interval in seconds. Then why are we so different from these living dead zombies??? Because we have feelings, we smile when we [...]

    22. 3.5 starsA philosophical zombie love story is not something I expected! I thoroughly enjoyed this and the prose was gorgeous (albeit a bit purple, but enjoyable still). I REALLY WISH I READ THIS WHEN THE SEQUEL WAS ALREADY OUT THOUGH. I have so many questions I need answered!

    23. Such a unique take on zombies. I really loved reading from the mind of a zombie. R is freaking awesome and I can't fucking wait for the sequel! I'm hoping we learn more about the plague like how did it start and I wanna know if R ever remembers who he is. What a great way to start 2016. :)

    24. Since I read this as an audiobook, I can't go back and share any quotes. [UPDATE: I have since wised up and started routinely checking out library print copies of my audio fare.] Which is a shame, since Warm Bodies is unexpectedly poetic for a zombie novel. It's also quite humorous.If you've seen the movie: The book is significantly different enough to be worth a go. The relationship between R and Julie's boyfriend is deeper and more important in the book than in the movie. The "boneys" are symb [...]

    25. Warm Bodies (Warm Bodies #1) by Isaac Marion was so boring that I got about half way through by forcing myself and gave up. I could not finish which is not like me at all. If I review a book, I finish it but I just could not torture myself any longer.

    26. Τα ζόμπι δεν είναι χορτοφάγα,το γνωρίζουμε όλοι.Τα ζόμπι του συγκεκριμένου βιβλίου όμως διαφέρουν.Εκτός του οτι έχουν εκλεπτυσμένες διατροφικές συνήθειες,έχουν χιούμορ,μιλάνε,ερωτεύονται και ακούν Frank Sinatra.Θα τους ταίριαζαν περισσότερο ακούσματα όπως Carcass και Autopsy, αλλά δ [...]

    27. Beautiful. A very unique and beautiful retelling of Romeo & Juliet. It left me with a smile on my face. It was heartwarming, lyrical, deep and profound. Something I did not expected. This doesn't feel like a zombie book at all. I mean it is full with gory creatures that are hungry for brains but it is much more than that. The whole book is a parallelism that represents a very strong message: Happiness is hidden in the smallest things-Live your life to the fullest. Oh, and don't forget: It is [...]
