Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
In anticipation of the upcoming film, I decided to read Isaac Marion’s novel Warm Bodies. I’m glad to say that I didn’t waste the ten dollars I spent purchasing it at the local Hastings.
Warm Bodies is a the delightfully gory yet romantic story told by a teenage zombie who, unfortunately, is unable to recall his own name, save for the fact that it may have begun with the letter R. “R”, though deceased, is a very lively character with a deep and engrossing vocabulary that often questions the meaning of life and also the meaning of death. But despite his colorful mind, R’s life is appropriately gray. He lives with a colony of fellow zombies in an abandoned airport, where he spends his days riding up and down the escalators, listening to Sinatra on an old phonograph, and, oh yeah, eating the brains of the living.
