Customer Review – “Zombies with emotions…it’s weird and wonderful!”
I am not a big fan of zombie stories (with the exception of the Walking Dead). I decided to get this book based on all the good reviews on Audible. I am so glad I did!!! This story was so unique and so captivating. It’s both weird and wonderful. I’ve never read anything like it. Kudos to both Issac Marion for writing such a rich and enthralling story and to Kevin Kenerly for bringing it to life with his amazing performance. 5 Stars all around!!!
R is a young man with an existential crisis—he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. His ability to connect with the outside world is limited to a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. 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.
Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His choice 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 explores what happens when the cold heart of a zombie is tempted by the warmth of human love.
