Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

Summary:(from goodreads) A  zombie who yearns for a better life ends up falling in love—with a human—in this astonishingly original debut novel.
R is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He doesn’t enjoy killing people; he enjoys riding escalators and listening to Frank Sinatra. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.
Not just another zombie novel, Warm Bodies is funny, scary, and deeply moving.

Review: I picked up this book after i saw the trailer for the movie that is coming out next month. I am really glad I did because I really enjoyed it. I liked the fact that this book is told from the Zombie's perspective which made it really unique and interesting to see what goes on in their heads. This story really explores the meaning of life and what it means to be human. I really liked the characters. R and Julie were both really well written and relatable in a way. I am really interested to see how this book will be translated into a movie because not being in R's head will make it lose some of it's magic. Getting to know R is a very important part of the story and I hope it doesn't get lost. I was also very excited to find out that there is going to be a sequel which is going to come out next year. I thought this was a very thoughtful yet fun and entertaining book.
