Stuff I'm reading... Mostly romance and Scifi/Fantasy.

Warm Bodies

Warm Bodies - Isaac Marion 4.5 stars. Quirky and uplifting zombie romance. The 1st person POV really works in this book. 'R' (the zombie) makes a compelling, chilling and sardonic narrator. His change from mindless undead to something new and heroic is the best part of the story. The scenes with his 'children', his friend 'M' and everything that takes place at the airport kept me glued to the words. The benignly gruesome anatomical drawings that began each chapter contributed to the creepy atmosphere. The ending was good and very hopeful but a little too easy for me. Has he really changed back into a real boy? I want him to be something different. I wanted to see more of the battle at the stadium. Hopefully the movie version ending will be more climactic. I really loved all the characters and I'm SO frustrated that the other writings in this world are either not going to be published till 2014 or were released as limited editions that have already sold out. Arrgh! Need. It. Noooow. (that was me doing my zombie accent. ;)The movie looks excellent and John Makovich will be perfect as Julie's Dad! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07s-cNFffDM
