I loved the writing style. I wasn't expecting such beauty in a book about zombies. The main character's outlook is moving.
I do have to say however, that the girl's reaction to the death of her boyfriend was less than life like.
Overall I give this a 5 based on the beauty of the narrative.
Deadness. Romeo. Juliet.
This is a great mix of Frankenstein, Shakespeare and any zombie story.
Delightful story with a funny and unique view of a zombie's world view.
Women who like romantic comedies, people who liked Romeo and Juliette.
I am still crazy about zombie stories, but this one wasn't my cup of tea.
Honestly, Julie is a prop. We never really learn anything meaningful about her as a character, or what is so special about her that she drive's R's recovery. Really, her dead boyfriend has more to say and is a more interesting character. Julie is just a run of the mill post apocalyptic teenager caricature of Juliette from Romeo and Juliette. I think the whole R&J thing was a prop that the author used to carry a unique idea, but ultimately it falls flat.
The whole premise behind the story was different. Really enjoyed it. There were some way off tangents to some memories which got a little slow at times though.
"R".....well and "M" of course
The narrator did a great job.
Charming story, however, like the Tinman in the Wizard of Oz, the main character assumes he has little brain capacity, yet is able to narrate the entire tale. Once you suspend disbelief of that, the story is very charming. I thought the "Bonies" were going to be something different explaining the affliction.
Sure. It's a great book and the narration is good.
I love the prose and the depth of the story, but some of the most memorable moments happen in the airport with R and Julie.
R playing "living" was fun.
Great experience, wish the narrator had a slightly less resonate voice. It made it hard to understand him sometimes.
There were parts where Kevin was switching characters, but I didn't catch it due to the characters voice being too similar. Not many, but it did stand out to me. Otherwise, very well done.
R for sure...I would love M to be there for comic relief as well.
Really enjoyed the book and finished it in less than three days. Very unique perspective and liked the thought of a cure. Would highly recommend for entertainment. Now off to see the movie.
yes if they like books like Twilight then I think the like it.
how he was becoming human agin.
yes to go and enjoy the world we have
Never trust anyone who doesn't enjoy reading.
Top 5, for sure. It was funny and entertaining.
He's a great narrator and played the parts very well.
I just saw a free pre-screening of the movie tonight and LOVED it! They pretty much stuck to the book. Def a must read book and must see movie!
