Warm Bodies
By Isaac Marion

2.5 out of 5

R is a typical zombie. He eats people, he grunts, he moves slowly around his airport habitat. R may be a bit more expressive with his emotions than the rest of the zombies, but nothing out of the ordinary. That is, until he meets Julie. Julie is alive and passionate and vibrant, and everything R wishes he could be, but can't quite reach. With Julie's help, R will be able to regain some of his humanity, but will it be enough. And how will the others react, undead or alive, to these changes going on inside of him?

This book was ok, I wasn't gripped by it at any point. There were a few quotes and things I likes, but I just felt kind of zombieish towards it. I think that I am definitely more of a Shadowhunter/vampire girl than a zombie girl. There was one quote that I really liked, and it stood out to me. On page 51 (hardcover) I found this quote, "I want to change my punctuation. I long for exclamation marks, but I'm drowning in ellipses."
