(Short review) Warm Bodies by Isac Marion

Book summary:
"R is a young man with an existential crisis--he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse. Just dreams.

After experiencing a teenage boy's memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and strangely sweet relationship with the victim's human girlfriend. Julie is a burst of vibrant color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that R lives in. His decision to protect her will transform not only R, but his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world."
 I don't really like zombies.

     This is going to be one short review. I did not like Warm Bodies very much. I did not like movie at all. Maybe problem is that I am not big fan of zombies. Or it is just that this book had too much loose ends and it was balancing, constantly, between adult and young adult vibe.  It started with an interesting concept - zombie as main narrator and different perspective of usual paranormal plot. But somewhere in the middle it stated to go down. Romeo and Juliet stereotype and explanation about how R get to be human again.

    Movie was... gahhh. Teen movie with HEA. Nothing special. You forget it as soon as credits start to roll.

    So... I don't like zombies

Until next time,

    1. I don't think you'll like it very much. There are better books on your tbr list.

  2. Same, I'm not a fan of zombies so I guess that's why I wasn't. Keen in the end, was very hyped too xxx


  3. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy Warm Bodies Glass, I'm not a huge zombie fan either, but I did get halfway through this book and thought it was somewhat enjoyable. I hope you enjoy your next read a lot more! :)

  4. I've heard some really good stuff about this one, but I'm not a zombies fan either. I'll easily give it a miss!

  5. Oh no, Glass. I've been looking forward to this movie. I read the book and really enjoyed it. But I do like zombie stories so that could have something to do with it. :)

  6. I'm sorry you did not like this, I enjoyed the book, I found the zombie perspective refreshing. :) But I agree about the movie too sugary...
