First sentence(s):
I am dead, but it's not so bad. I've learned to live with it.

R is having a no-life crisis—he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he is a little different from his fellow Dead. He may occasionally eat people, but he’d rather be riding abandoned airport escalators, listening to Sinatra in the cozy 747 he calls home, or collecting souvenirs from the ruins of civilization.

And then he meets a girl.

First as his captive, then his reluctant guest, Julie is a blast of living color in R’s gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesn't want to eat this girl—although she looks delicious—he wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they can’t imagine, and their hopeless world won’t change without a fight.


It is my pleasure to present Sophia Rose of the Delighted Reader today with her mini-review on, Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion.

Sophia's two-bits:

I stepped well out of my comfort zone to pick this one up and read it. I know for zombie purists this one is a softball, but for me, it was a test of my fortitude. And gladly, I can report that it was a successful attempt. I loved what the author brought together here with a thought-provoking blend of horror, romance, humor, philosophy and just a poignant story at the end of the world.

About Sophia:
