Warm Bodies: A Novel | Isaac Marion
128 posts | 197 read | 2 reading | 78 to read
Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.R is having a no-life crisishe is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he is a little different from his fellow Dead. He may occasionally eat people, but hed rather be riding abandoned airport escalators, listening to Sinatra in the cozy 747 he calls home, or collecting souvenirs from the ruins of civilization. And then he meets a girl. First as his captive, then his reluctant house guest, Julie is a blast of living color in Rs gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesnt want to eat this girlalthough she looks delicioushe wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they cant imagine, and their hopeless world wont change without a fight.

I read this for the Scarathlon but I was too slow. Kind of a sweet, zombie version of Romeo and Juliet. I think I‘ll watch the movie just to see how they tackled this storyline.

I know some people have asked about how I am doing after breaking my knee last Monday, so here is an update now that I am back home and have seen the ortho. We were able to remove the plaster cast that was put on in France and replace with a brace that will slowly allow me more mobility on my knee. Thankful that surgery was not required, though I will still be immobile for awhile. Watching Halloween movies and finishing this book today 🎃

Kimberlone Thanks again to everyone who has wished me well the past week, I had so many comments I couldn‘t respond to all of them! 3mo

Really liked this! Very unique take on a totally overdone trope… second team read for #teamhendrix and another 3 hrs for #20in4 … think I‘m going to have to go by chapters and call it a success that way 🙈

I've really enjoyed Scarathlon and now I'm HYPED for the Winter Games - I'm going to try to figure out how readathons etc work for that moreso and make a little spreadsheet to track my points😁

I love this book so much. I felt actual emotion when I read it. The story of a zombie who is trying to find his way back to humanity. This feels so original. In general, I try to avoid zombie stories because they bore me. But for Warm Bodies I will make an exception. So good. 5 stars.

Braaaaaiiiinnnsss… 🧟

1. Quiet zombies. I hate jump scares SO MUCH!
2. One of the two #BuddyRead books for #TeamHendrix . We‘ll see which hold comes in first for me to read.
3. So I read Seanan McGuire‘s Feed last year, near the beginning of *gestures vaguely at everything* and a virus makes a lot of sense. 😬

#SundayFunday Have a ghoulish day, and don‘t forget to tag me!

jessinikkip I think for number 1 it depends if you mean movies or real life. In movies i hate quiet zombies. But in real life I'm deaf so I wouldnt hear them anyway. So then, quiet but slow is the perfect way to go for me. 3mo

I knew this book wasn‘t going to be for me and yet, I picked it up anyway. Zombies freak me out. I‘m glad he didn‘t describe eating too many brains.

TheAromaofBooks I'm not a zombie fan either... and I have realized that one of the reasons I like reading in print best is because it's so much easier to skim/skip the sections I don't want to read 😂 3mo

My Week 1 #Scarathlon #TeamHendrix Total is 9,136!

Thanks to the word game & 6 readathons (which bless the spreadsheet providers because some were weekend or specific books, or monthlong or audiobooks-so varying hour amounts & Beanstacker was helpful). But I think I got it all sorted. The early #TBR & team read points helped & I‘m impressed I got 6 books read/listened to from 10/1-10/10.
I am sure my next week total won‘t be this high.🤷🏻‍♀️

Finished the #scarathlon2021 #teamhendrix buddy read and we watched the movie tonight. #screamathon #scarepairs

I remembered enjoying the movie when I first saw it several years ago. However I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the book and really enjoyed it. The friendship between R and M was one of my favorite things in the book and I loved seeing those moments in the movie. I may pick up the second book at some point too.

I read this as the #teambuddyread for #teamhendrix for #scarathlon & watched the movie this afternoon for #screamathon Week 1 #ScarePairs prompt.

I actually liked the book more than I thought I might. I liked the humor & getting R‘s POV as a zombie & his friendship with M. In fact, I think the friendships between R & M & Julie & Nora were what I liked more than the zombie romance. I saw the movie when it came out & although there were some ⬇️

DebinHawaii …differences, quite a lot of it aligned with the book. I like that it was a quick read too. 😉 I may give the sequel a try at some point. 🧟‍♀️🧟🧟‍♂️ Now I just need to figure out the whole #scarathlon points thing! 🤔 (edited) 4mo

I *finally* finished last month‘s #NovelWatchingCrew book! (But not the movie yet.)

I enjoyed it enormously, right blend of zombie grossness, humor and every color of emotional string-pulling.

I‘m not sure I‘m up to the sequel/s though. I just want the happy ending for this couple & the budding romance of their costars.

(Forgive me for not remember who I should be tagging. I will accept your rebuke & correction with roll call. 😕

WOWx5 I'm stunned. The writing THE WRITING- INCREDIBLE! So gritty, hilarious and devastatingly real, this book captured my soul from the start. It toed the line between a satirical comedy & a gracefully woeful tragedy. R was so sincere w/ his pain because he couldn't feel the emotion he described, it made the longing & desperation so real even though it was understated by his indifference towards the tragedy his life was. So unique & so beautiful!

1. Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, if that counts :)
2. Maybe Anna Karenina for the Twenty-First century, but there already is Anna K: A Love Story by Jenny Lee :)
3. Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion (unexpected retelling of Romeo and Juliet)

Looking forward to #hauntedhollowswap - thanks for hosting @wanderinglynn 🎃 I like supernatural, but nothing too scary. I also like true crime, serial killers, slasher films - but not too gory. I also need a bit of romance - just cause it‘s spooky doesn‘t mean things can‘t get sweet❤️ yah, I‘m a weirdo...
