This is a retelling of R(omeo) and Julie(t) . . . with zombies. A zombie, R, falls in love with a human teenager, Julie, and they might have accidentally figured out a way to end the zombie apocalypse.The beginning of this book was the best part. It's kind of funny, and zombie "culture" was interest...

This book and its film adaptation have a horrible marketing team. I mean borderline brain-damaged. This is no TWILIGHT with zombies. The writing is crisp and fresh. Marion's gift for storytelling is remarkable, the way he can describe the smallest things with brilliant metaphors and similes. One of ...

I read this a long time ago, and it's still with me. I was surprised by how much I really liked it. Great original story in my opinion. It had everything a good story needs, death, love, humor, gore...perfect.

The movie was fantastic and many of the humorous lines made me think reading this would be really fun. But after a lot of consideration I think I'll probably stick with the movie version, though that opinion could change in the future.

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 th...

I really wanted to give this book four stars but I just can't do it for some reason that I can't quite figure out. I really enjoyed the first three quarters of this book. I liked the zombie point of view and the rumination about what it is that makes us "alive". But there was just something about th...

I liked the book, but it was pretty in the face with the Romeo and Juliet retelling.It's well written, but there was just some places that were, off for me? But it's a very quotable book at places and I like that.I hope the next book in the series explain some of the things that happened a little m...

I saw the movie first. Decided to give the book a try (50 page test) and was pleasantly surprised.
