Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion, 241 pages
R is a zombie, existing only to eat human flesh, but that changes when he eats the brain of a young man named Perry. He starts to gain Perry's memories, including his love and protective feelings for Julie. While protecting Julie from the other zombies, R starts to change. What will this mean for the undead zombies, the living survivors, and most of all, for R and Julie?
This is one of the most interesting and fascinating zombie books I've ever read, with a completely new twist on the zombie genre. With the book written from the viewpoint of a zombie, "Warm Bodies" is a undead read that will have you eagerly turning each page, upset to see the end come. As a fan of zombie books, I've read almost everything out there, and Isaac Marion's book is at the top of the field for originality, characters, and plot. I wholeheartedly recommend this book for anyone who likes zombie book, or paranormal fiction of any kind. I can't wait to see this turned into a movie. Rob Patterson kind of looks like a zombie to begin with, so he would be perfect.
