5.0 out of 5 stars When Zombie met Julia - A love story with a difference, 31 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Warm Bodies (Kindle Edition)
Zombies rule. Literally. The world has gone to pot and now the living dead are living out their lives as slowly rotting corpses in a land decimated by a plague that lets the dead rise up, that is if the dead aren't eaten beforehand by other hungry Zombies. Humans who have survived the plague now have to live fortressed lives, dodging Zombie feeding parties in a bid to live each day as best they can.

"R" is a Zombie, he's better looking than most other Zombies, he pretty much got all his parts intact though his skin colouring leaves a lot to be desired. He has little memory of who he was before he became a Zombie, he knows his name began with an R so he calls himself, "R" but what he does remember is that despite the hunger he has for human flesh and brains rules his life, he was once human with human emotions and feelings.

When he kills and eats a human called Perry he finds himself seeing parts of Perry's life through his own eyes and how this youth had loved a girl called Julia, a girl that is about to be killed and eaten by his fellow Zombies and for reasons "R" cannot yet fathom, he saves her life and hides her in the airport where most of the Zombies live in grotesque parodies of a human life, with families being created from the withered flesh of the risen dead.

This the most surprising love story you will ever read. It's a Zombie meets girl but does not eat girl but saves her instead, girl gets to know Zombie and starts to fall in love with him too but of course true love is never straight forward for Zombie and his one true love.

"R" has to fight to regain his lost humanity, along with taking on the Boney's, the self appointed leaders of the Zombie "family." With only his decaying friend "M" supporting him, "R" is forced to go on a road trip that will lead him to Julia's world, a place where the only good Zombie is a dead Zombie.

But "R" has one advantage that just might save him, he is in love and he can now pass as a living being for he is slowly changing, not just internally but externally too. But will he get the girl of his dreams? Will he escape the wrath of the Boney's and Julia's soldier father, all of whom want him dead, this time for good.
