None. I've never run into a book about zombies from the zombies perspective that wasn't someone turning into a zombie and losing their mind and humanity. This is opposite. very Cerebral. Pun not intended.
He brings the voice of R. He make are, for lack of a better term, come alive and be a distinct voice instead of a boring narration.
R of course . Gives us a really idea of what it might be like to exist as a zombie and if capable of thought why they don't just die.
I biased because I liked the movie and saw it first, but I ended up liking the book more in a lot of ways since it discussed things we didn't have time to delve into in the movie. Also the ending is a little less happy ending and more uncertain, but still ... sorry no spoilers. Buy it.
Love to exercise while listening
YES! Cute zombie book. I loved hearing about R's emotions and his transformation.
He did very well with the voices and the slow zombie talk and grunts.
This was a short book that you could easily listen to all at once.
Even if you saw the movie, you'd love this book. Some things are different. nice treat!
The writing was beautiful, though sometimes a touch on being overly "writerly." I would give another Marion work a try, especially as I think his style will grow as he does. Kevin Kenerly was a good match for this book, I'd listen to him again happily.
The ending weakened what came before for me. No spoilers, so I can't say more than I felt that the ending felt forced and just a bit nonsensical.
Hard not to choose R, the narrator. Kenerly brings a lot to this character.
This is a question that mystifies me. So I guess the answer must be no.
A good book, not a great one. It kept me interested throughout, though it lost me in the last hour.
Wonderful, unique, brillant
The movie I loved so I had to read the book. The movie really follows the book well. I have to sat the book is so worth reading. You get more in depth in the book. It just comes even more into life. How someone could take a subject like zombies and make them more human is amazing. A must read.
Really great. Had to watch the movie and wasn't too disappointed. What a great way to present zombie love with out the "dawn of the dead" gore.
I loved the idea of this story. I did not love the story itself. I felt the author let too many things go unanswered, and did not develop the characters as well as he could have. The story was good though, just not as good as I had hoped. The Romeo and Juliet feel was fun though, and I loved how he uses music as language. There were a lot of good parts to this book, it just left me wanting and feeling flat overall. Worth a read, but only if you have some time on your hands and want a different take on the zombies theme.
I did not care for the ending. I think the movie ending was a little better honestly, although I liked the book much more than the movie.
I spend a large amount of my income on books. I mean, a lot. Seriously. It's a problem.
No. I generally like zombie books. I'm a fan of the genre, and I was excited about this new twist on the typical storyline. It was a little too juvenile for me. The teen romance parts undermined the philosophical moments R has throughout. The scene with zombie "sex" was also pretty weird.
The voice was a little whispery, which sometimes enhanced the work, but it also made it slow and it conveyed a tone that didn't always seem to fit. The voice shift for Julie was particularly difficult to enjoy.
I think R has a lot of thoughts about what it means to live as a human. These moments are pretty deep, and I enjoyed them.
There's not really much I can say about this one. You pretty much get what you're expecting. There are not any twists or turns, and the ending is pretty predictable. For fans of zombie flicks, books and tv shows this is a nice addition. It's a fun take on the inner workings of the walking dead. It's a quick listen, entertaining, and the narrator does a great job.
Yes, it was entertaining.
Yes, because we all like zombie stories.
Warm Bodies: Beauty and the Braaaaiiinnnsss
Be a little more realistic about the resolution.
Sure. It was a fun read with a different view of the zombie apocalypse. I just wish the end wasn't resolved with a magical solution.
I believe he did a real good job playing the zombies and "human" characters.
Now I need to see the movie.
