R è uno zombie in piena crisi esistenziale. Cammina per un'America distrutta dalla guerra, segnata dal caos e dalla fame dissennata dei morti viventi. R, però, è ancora capace di desiderare, non gli bastano solo cervelli da mangiare e sangue da bere. Non ha ricordi né identità, non gli batte più il cuore e non sente il sapore dei cibi, la sua capacità di comunicare col mondo è ridotta a poche, stentate sillabe, eppure dentro di lui sopravvive un intero universo di emozioni. Un universo pieno di meraviglia e nostalgia. Un giorno, dopo aver divorato il cervello di un ragazzo, R compie una scelta inaspettata: intreccia una strana ma dolce relazione con la ragazza della sua vittima, Julie. Un evento mai accaduto prima, che sovverte le regole e va contro ogni logica. Vuole respirare, vuole vivere di nuovo, e Julie vuole aiutarlo. Il loro mondo però, grigio e in decomposizione, non cambierà senza prima uno scontro durissimo con...

Ten Reasons to Read WARM BODIES 1. It is a zombie book. But not like that. In the spirit of honesty, I had this book as an advanced review copy for literally months before I picked it up. It had glowing reviews from Stephanie Meyer, so I figured it couldn’t be that gross, and a glowing quote from Aud Leggi tutto
The protagonist of Warm Bodies is R, a zombie who cannot remember his name beyond that single letter. He is verbose compared to other zombies, although his main recreation is still riding escalators around the airport in which he lives. I kind of felt like the escalator riding was a shout out to Daw Leggi tutto
What makes us human? Is it merely a collection of living flesh and tissue and bone, or is it also consciousness and memory and feeling? R, the young zombie who narrates this novel, isn't really sure. But after meeting Julie, a human girl he impulsively saves and hides away in an abandoned plane, he

I finished this book awhile ago, but I've been avoiding writing my review. The only reason I can think of is that I really don't want my first read glow to go away. You know that time after you read a really spectacular book when you're just sitting around, thinking about how wonderful it was and go Leggi tutto
Cold Hands, Warm Heart "R" spends his time at the airport, taking long walks and scooping brains out of skulls. He's a zombie but unlike most of the ones he's met, he can think about more than just his stomach. Julie is one of the last humans living in the settlement. She's finally old enough to go o Leggi tutto
What an entertaining delight! I first heard of this book through the movie trailer. I was very skeptical about this, yet oddly curious at the same time. A zombie who falls in love.... I did not know what to expect getting into this. What I ended up experiencing was a story like no other. 'R' is a z
This is not a young adult novel. I mean, it is about a young adultish human and zombie who fall in love and set about to change the world with love. But this is not a young adult novel. It has themes of young love and disaffected youth and hopeful new beginnings but this is not a young adult novel, pe Leggi tutto
4.5 stars. Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature : In Warm Bodies (2010), our world has been overrun by the zombies, and the few humans who are left are fighting a rearguard action. They huddle in walled enclosures, sending out occasional armed expeditions for food and supplies. Regular sch Leggi tutto
Much better than I expected - especially after the start. I really wasn't going to sure if I would care for this one because it seemed a little silly at first. But, after I got into it, it started to have some interesting action sequences and some really deep introspection on the human condition.
