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.
I'd say it's in the top ten.
I cannot compare it to anything I've read, It's unique.
I loved all the little differences with each character's voice and a the fact that each one was believable.
Well, a couple of tears fell, yeah and I smiled quite a few times at the conversations. Nothing extreme, but it was a very pleasant experience.
I would have liked the book to last longer, though. Is there another?
I've never read the print version, but the audio was great.
This is the first of his performances, but I can't wait to hear more!
There were incredibly sweet and poignant moments. And incredibly hilarious ones!
Such a wonderful, different, fresh story. This book takes common themes and turns them on their head, just a little. R becomes such an endearing character! And Nora is my favorite! Kevin Kenerly performed with nuance and he gave a separate voice to each character. He performed in such a "gentle" way, that the story really comes to life!!! He didn't have to force any importance or drama into the story; he let the story do that. Much of the book is R's internal monologue and Kenerly made it perfect!!!
I would re-listen to Warm Bodies with a notebook and pen just to write down awesomely crafted phrases.
“I want to change my punctuation. I long for exclamation marks, but I'm drowning in ellipses.”
I went into this book thinking that it would be another YA book converted to a movie for a mass audience. I intentionally read the book first and was amazed at the elegance of the writing. This and "The Secret Life of Bees" are the only two audio books I can say that I would re-listen to just to capture some of the sentences.
This page contains spoilers, but go to it after you listen to recapture some of the best moments.
The unlikely love of a girl and a zombie....
When she was teaching him to drive the car and the kids came along.
This book is amazing, it's hilarious, it's serious, it's love, it's death, it's zombies! what more could you want:)
M is my favorite character, he's just an all around awesome character
I have not, but this reader out of all the books i've listened to is my favorite reader!~
a must read/listen!
