Summary (from Goodreads):
I have to first say that Warm Bodies was probably not the normal type of book I would read if it wasn't for the movie. I originally had no interest in the book or movie until my sister talked me into to. I made room for it on my TBR list.
I started off really liking the book then it hit a point where the book got slow. I haven't read a zombie story before, but I was glad this one lack blood and gore. After R met Julie the book really took off although there was some slow parts. R is a zombie he isn't the normal heroin of a romantic story, but for a zombie love story he was pretty good. Julie acceptance of R was amazing.
Overall I enjoyed this book. It wasn't a book I absolutely loved, but I don't think I was the right candidate to fall in love with a zombie love story. This book was different and the author obviously had a good idea for it to be made into a movie. The ending of Warm Bodies was really cheesy, but I was okay with it because I felt the book needed a happy ending.
The movie was also very well done and followed the book almost a tee. It left out a few unnessary parts and changed a couple of points from the book. As an adaptation the movie was top notch. I really liked how the film showed the characters and explained R's life. The movie had a few dry parts also that followed the book, but I didn't enjoy those moments in the book either. I suggest you watch it for yourself. They don't show anything that deals with blood, but there were a few moments I could have done without. I don't get into horror movies. This was far from one. At its heart it was still a love story. I suggest you give the book and movie a try.
