This is not a young adult novelI 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 novelIt has themes of young love and disaffected youth and hopeful new beginnings but this is not a young adult novel peopleRegardless of what it is it’s a pretty good novel but I have a confession This is going to translate in people’s minds as me being simplistic and unable to handle the deeper complicated themes of this book – but I don’t careI liked the movie betterMajor fans of the book are going to virulently disagree with me – but I thought it actually managed to streamline the story highly effectively keeping the spirit of the novel without deviating from anything important In fact the way it restructured some events I actually thought created a emotional impactBut the book itself is still pretty good though I wonder at some of the weird turns it takes Like zombie sex Lots of zombie sex Nice to know that even zombie women experience objectification Comforting Guess some things never change Objectification and unsatisfying sex straight into the un lifeR is adorkable and if I never have to type the word again it will be too soon But he is In the midst of his mid death crisis with an unfulfilling zombie marriage and two little tykes to drag him down life seems empty and unfulfilling R wants to be alive again He even gets a sports car and kidnaps a young girlfriend Luckily unlike reality this is fantasy so it’s all okay As opposed to the time I kidnapped my own young girlfriend and got a sports car That turned out to be a big mistake altYOLOI love Julie I mean she’s a total idiot a dreamer and so far removed from reality that it might as well be the third nipple she never had But she was a wonderful character nonetheless who I completely adored I adored everyone almost as much as I adored the writing Which was pretty evocative raw kind of gross – but in a good wayThe only thing I struggled with in this book was that I felt the pacing and overall narrative flow of the movie made so much sense and was a lot tighter stronger and powerful Otherwise if you like zombies existential crises stories of young people improbably overcoming impossible circumstances and weird zombie sex then this is the book for youJust don’t call it a young adult novel okayThis review and others like it can also be found on my blog Cuddlebuggery Book Blog

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 Dawn of the Dead and it made me happy The first few chapters of the book are the strongest parts of the book I think they must have been polished over and over again and they contrast the rest of the book so sharply that it can only suffer in comparison Still R's thoughts are a little too well connected for a zombie which made me feel like it was a mistake to tell this first person The book would have been of a success with me if his evolution from man eater to Romeo was a little gradual instead of part way there Given the number of pages we go through before we meet R's love interest and the catalyst for all the changes he goes through I think he ought to have been zombie ishThe zombies didn't feel much like zombies to me They had the ability to form relationships albeit very basic ones and to have a somewhat structured community There was a church in which R is married and there is a school that his adopted children attend to learn how to be better zombies The logic behind this is that children lack the instincts to be good zombies to know how to kill and where to bite Ummm I didn't really buy that too much If next to none of their personality and memories are retained wouldn't a child zombie just be so many infected cells directed by the virus This is one of those books where I had to buckle up and stop asking uestions because I wasn't going to get any decent answersAfter the intial zombie world establishing is out of the way the story is just a weird retelling of Romeo and Juliet If Bella constantly comparing herself to Juliet in New Moon annoyed you then this book will probably give you a rage blackout You'd think after New Moon a book couldn't be in your face about retelling that story but you'd be wrong Sure Bella and Edward watch the movie all cuddled up together and he repeats the play line for line in her ear at the beginning of New Moon but at least Stephanie Meyer didn't give Bella the middle name Juliet to like seal the freaking dealRomeo kills and eats Perry Paris who is trying to protect his girlfriend Juliet In Isaac Marion's world zombies enjoy brains because it gives them brief flashes of human memory R gets Perry's memories of Julie Essentially all he knows about Julie beyond that she's warm and delicious is from Perry Perry's memories and feelings for Julie motivate R to save her even attacking his bestest zombie buddy Mercutio And since I want to get my effing Romeo and Juliet references out of the way now I'm just going to let you know Julie's best friend is named Nora Nora wants to be a nurse I thought all the Romeo and Juliet crap was done by the time I got to Nora and I almost had a seizure when I realized there was Believe me I'm sparing you by telling you in advanceThere are Romeo and Juliet references sprinkled throughout the book with all the finesse of a two year old flower girl throwing balled up crumpled hunks of flower petals on the floor as she stomps her little way toward the alter but none of them bothered me as much as the repetitive transparency of the namesSo back to R and Julie He saves her from M who Julie calls a 'fat fuck' for the rest of the book smears dead blood all over her face to hide her from the zombies and takes her back to zombie H at the airport Julie goes along with this because her options are kind of limited to R or being devoured by a pack of zombies I don't really know how she managed it without hysterics the story is told or less from R's POV but she was a little too levelheaded about the whole experience given that her boyfriend and most of her friends just became chowR shoves Julie inside the airplane he lives in to keep her safe from the other zombies He goes off to hang out with M Together they eat the brain of another teenage boy who had been in the group with Julie and Perry The experience isn't anything extremely altering for R but luckily he's still got some of Perry to gnaw on You see he didn't eat all of Perry's brain in one sitting No he carries the rest around with him to much on slowly so he can um savor the experience Sorry bad LucyAgain R experiences Perry's memories of Julie and this is where the author fumbles I can forgive the cheesy uality of retelling Romeo and Juliet I can forgive a zombie society that actually is a society but there comes a point when as an author you have to man up and deal with the circumstances of the story you're writing R is a zombie Zombies are monsters R is a monster He ate a teenage boy who loved Julie and he is IMMEDIATELY and CONSTANTLY absolved of any guiltPerry's life force was either so vibrant that it changed R or his love for Julie such a uniue experience that it changed R who has eaten hundreds of other brains Something about Perry was that catalyst but Perry and Julie's relationship is downplayed forever after as being 'almost over' and his life as something he was pretty much ready to forfeit This is all done to forgive R I would have preferred R's story be about finding redemption for what he'd done and learning to fight the virus and change his natureBy eating Perry's brain R gets to steal his memories and experiences the grief after his mother's death the world's upheaval and most importantly meeting and falling in love with Julie He even experiences the first time Perry and Julie make love It was creepy and sad and if the author had owned it then the whole thing could have been awesome but instead we got the constant downplaying and reduction of Perry's life and value as a person By downplaying Perry's love for Julie and Perry's death all the author did was downplay the catalyst for R's change and the story absolutely without a fucking doubt suffered for itR is forgiven for Perry's death four or five times throughout this 239 page novel Oh yeah I'm uoting some of it babyPage 55 Anyway she says whoever killed Perry I just want you to know I don't blame them for itI tense again You don'tNo I mean I think I get it You don't have a choice right And tot be honest I'd never say this to anyone but She stirs her food It's kind of a relief that it finally happenedI frown WhatTo be able to finally stop dreading itYep don't worrying about eating the first boy she loved It's better to rip that bandaid off rips out hair Icing for that cake is that it's not long after he's dead Later in the memoriesdreams stirred by consuming Perry's brain the ghostlingering memory of the dead kid forgives him saying he was ready to go Later Nora echoes Julie's sentiments about it not really being R's fault since it's the virus Sometime after Nora absolves him of guilt he finally confesses to Julie and she forgives him for a second time You can't tell but I'm rolling my eyesLook Suzanne Collins owned the dark world of The Hunger Games when she brutally killed off view spoilerRue hide spoiler
