Read It Before You See It: Warm Bodies

Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

Title: Warm Bodies

Author: Isaac Marion

Publisher: Vintage

Published Date: October 28, 2010



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.

How had I not heard about this book before seeing the movie trailer? It sounds really interesting and I love zombies.

The movie looks really good plus it stars Nicholas Hoult who I loved in About A Boy (another great book) and Skins.

So here is the million dollar question, book before movie or movie before book?
