Ro is a zombie. He has no name, no memories, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He is different from his fellow Dead. Amongst the ruins of an abandoned city, R meets a girl. Warm and fierce and very much alive, Julie is a blast of colour in a dreary grey landscape; she means more than flesh and blood. Something imperceptible shifts, a switch is flicked, and R suddenly finds he wants to save Julie instead of eating her; he wants to protect her, whatever happens. This has never happened before. This is against all the rules and beyond all expectations. R begins to have new thoughts and feelings and powerful longings, and together he and Julie attempt to bring the whole decaying world back from the dead.

Warm bodies has been described as a zombie romance and even been compared to the book Twilight in regards to a forbidden love story. But if you're not a Twi-fan don't be discouraged 'R' is a zombie living in a post-apocalyptic America where the remaining living humans are in hiding and often get attacked by zombies during their numerous hunting rituals. Told from a zombie's perspective, R delivers a world where zombies have no emotion, can't read or write and simply pass the time doing nothing. That is until R along with some other zombies attack a group of humans. After R kills a young man and begins eating his brain he takes on memories of Perry and his girlfriend Julie. After saving Julies life, R is met with new thoughts and attitudes the other zombies do not posses. I would definitely recommend reading the book and then if you are hyper and jumping up and down like I have been, watch the film adaption. Reviewed by 31cf
'R is a zombie. He has no name, no memories and no pulse. But he has dreams. He is a little different from his fellow undead.' Unexpectedly funny and romantic, hands down one of the most enjoyable books I have ever read. Let 'R' teach you the true meaning of life. A must read. reviewed by 30ti
