To be honest I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book. Don't get me wrong I love everything paranormal but as I had never read anything purely based on the life of a zombie I was very unsure of what to expect. I had seen the movie trailers which I think is what inspired me to take the plung and give the book a chance and I am so glad I did.
I never thought the life of a zombie could he so interesting and structured. The idea that even once you are dead or living dead that there could be a form of structure and even faith was a amazing concept that can lend its self to so many story possibilities.
In this case Isaac has told the story of a no name zombie who we come to no as R. R dosent know who he was before he died, or even how old he is.
But even in the world of zombies there is something different about R , he appears to be more then zombie but less then human. This becomes more apparent when R meets .... On a food hunt and his life changes forever .
From the moment they meet there is a spark of change in the air . The world or what is left of the world will he changed for ever.
This is a inspiring story of love and hope. Encouraging people to never give up that one person can change the world.
For those who are looking for a good read this book has something for everyone

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, noidentity, and no pulse, but he has 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 blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His decision to protect her will transform not only R, but his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world.
Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.
