In my opinion, this is one of the easiest and most enjoyable reads in the post-apocalyptic genre. The characters aren’t stiff, not even the dead ones. The story moves quickly, but still has lots of warm moments that help you relate to the many quirky characters. Marion makes this story work on every level and it deserves the accolades it has received. One reviewer compared “R”–the primary narrator of the novel– to Frankenstein’s monster. But, in “Warm Bodies”, we get a much clearer, real, and more humorous view of R’s quest for humanity and love than Shelley ever provided.
