Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It’s been a long time since I simply read a book for pleasure. After seeing the film trailer for Warm Bodies and learning this was also a book, I HAD to read it. Let’s face it, it looks absolutely wicked!
I’ve never been a fan of zombie stories. I like Resident Evil and that’s about it, but this story may just hold the power to convert me. There’s not much I can say about the storyline that hasn’t already been said countless times. It’s definitely a romantic comedy with a hint of the horror genre. There’s quite a bit of action and of course, a true love story. I love all the characters, especially ‘R’ and ‘M’, how could you not? ‘R’ is a zombie and even I fell for him. Also, Julie isn’t one of these wimpy girls so she gets an A+ from me.
After watching the film trailers I can see there are going to be quite a few differences to the print version, I’m looking forward to seeing what they do with it. I don’t think for one minute this story could be spoiled.
The only gripe I had was the sheer amount of metaphors and similes. They just seemed too much and at times, I did skip the odd paragraph because things were overly explained or described. Other than that though, this is one awesome read and is now one of my favourite stories!
