Review: Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

Warm Bodies (Warm Bodies #1)Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I won a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

I had fun reading this book. I'm glad I waited to see the movie because it's always more fun to picture the characters in your head. The book is very skillfully written. Immediately I felt pulled into R's world. A dystopian world full of zombies with no apparent rhyme or reason as to how or why or when it got that way.

Now, normally zombies are not my cup of tea. Their lack of intelligence makes them boring to me. I prefer vampires, witches, mummies even. But this book kinda endeared zombies to me on the whole supernatural-food-chain. Zombies can be fascinating and deep-- who knew? I'm still kind if fuzzy about if this is the first book in a series or whatnot. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is I was a little annoyed by how (what's the word? Talkative? Indulgent? Share-friendly?) Julie was. She seemed to blab a lot about her life, but maybe I'm in a jerk mood. It's hardly a bad thing. Actually, it seems natural considering its the "end of the world" and all.

If you want a really fun, witty, well-written story you HAVE to read Warm Bodies. It's excellent. You'll love it.

Rrrrrrr. :r

  1. This book is one of my summer goals! I loved the movie (yes, I saw the movie before I read the book) and now I really want to read this! Also, I followed your blog via bloglovin and I would really like it if you could do the same, just in GFC actually does go away. Thanks a bunch :)

    1. Done! Thanks for following :D you should definitely read the book it's really good AND a fast read! :tup

  2. I loved this one too. I wasn't sure why I even got it, I normally hate zombie books or movies but something about this one appealed to me. I was so glad I jumped out of my comfort zone for Warm Bodies, it was great. Movie was good too :)

    1. I remember you saying you liked it. I am going to be more open minded about zombie books from now on! :~

  3. I have been wanting to read this book for quite a while, especially with the movie coming out and all that. But like you, I am not much of a zombie person... Not that I ever really gave zombie books a shot, I just kind of decided it wasn't for me. But I have been hearing really good things about it and will definitely have to check it out!
    Ohh, I have so much to catch up on on your blog. I don't even know where to begin :)

    1. Ah, don't worry about catching up!! I'm just glad you're back! I was worried about you! :h


  4. I loved this book as well! I thought it had some beautiful scenes in it, and it was definitely a spin on the whole zombie take. I also didn't give it five stars (I think I rated four), but it wasn't because of Julie. I got kind of... not bored with it, but I started to feel like it drug on a little towards the end.

    Great review!
