Warm Bodies (Warm Bodies, #1)

Warm Bodies (Warm Bodies, #1) - Isaac Marion I feel a little cheated with this book. I knew it was part of a series when I started reading it but that doesn't stop me being disappointed that it's over.

To be plain: I loved it! The five stars are for character, plot, execution, emotion and romance factor. I would give each aspect 5 stars on their own, and collectively together.

I loved R and his relationship with M. I loved how his feelings for Julie progressed, his 'children' and the clear emotion that R struggled to understand. I really liked his speech and the fact that he couldn't read, it only added to the belief that he was a zombie who had forgotten everything from his old life and all those old memories. I love Julie's history, her relationship with her father. I particularly love Nina and the ending with M, I always thought they would be great together. You can really 'see' the world Marion has portrayed for the Stadium, the situation they're all in, the depths they've sunk to and all the things they're had to suffer, put each other through and put their children through in their fight.

Overall, I loved Warm Bodies. I totally fell in love with the unlikely hero R and cannot wait to read the rest of the books in this series.
