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!
I'm not normally a zombie book person, but this was oddly engrossing. Overall good story with great narration.
Normally I don't read Zombie books, but I liked this one - it was really different than most Zombie stories. Loved the characters!
I think it's one of my all time favorites. It's one you can listen to over and over, be it to fall asleep at night (I'm an insomniac & tend to listen to books to fall asleep) or because you just want to listen to it.
I like when R & Julie are in R's "house", the airplane. All the things he's collected show he isn't just a mindless zombie.
R of course, but I also like Perry, when they are both conversing in R's head.
I'd answer, but I don't really want to spoil anything for people who haven't read/listened to it yet.
Keven Kenerly is awesome. I thought his name sounded familiar & I finally realized where I'd heard it before...in Ashland, Oregon at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. He played Oberon in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream (among many, many other roles). The man is a fantasic actor, which definitely carries over to his narration of books. I plan on looking up more books he's narrated because he is so good to listen to.
I really loved the narrative in this book. It's such a fresh idea to have the zombie story from the point of view of the zombie. I loved the actor, he did a great job.
I have seen the movie and I have to say that I liked how the movie wrapped up better than the book. They streamlined it for the movie and took out some unnecessary and confusing parts.
I love fantasy and science fiction.
This book is definitely worth the read! Great narration and interesting twist on zombie and romance stories. Couldn't put this book down and it kept me smiling the whole way.
I watched the movie first then read this book (like I always do for film adaptions) and I thoroughly enjoyed both. Very small changes were made from book to film that didn't really make much of a difference.
I personally wasn't a fan...while there are sweet moments in the story I felt like I was stuck in a monotone life (which of course is the point so well done there) and the ending climax didn't have much of an explanation just a evolutuion miracle.
