Summary

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....

Fantastic story

Warm Bodies is a fantastic story, and quite unique. I have seen the film and thought I'd see what the book was like. I was surprised how different it was. I would recommend this title.
The only fault is the chapters aren't separated when read aloud which made it difficult for me to stop listening and coming back to it later.

Alright book. Very badly chosen/cast narrator

The book/story itself was ok. Not amazing or great, but interesting and at times amusing. Storyline took a while to get going and even when it did there were times where the pace was simply too slow - R did too much pondering, but I guess that's a zombie hazard. I've seen the trailer and before reading the book was desperate to see the film, having read the book I am now less enthusiastic.



I've listened to countless audio books, the narrators can be hit and miss, but the narrator on Warm Bodies was particularly appalling. He sounds like an old man and it was difficult to deal with this in relation to R's romance with teenager Julie. He was also too theatrical and his nuances were extremely annoying. Would not recommend the audio - read the paperback instead.

Loved it!

Loved the story! A little different, but funny and romantic in its own way. Will definately listen to the sequel.
