Good Reads: Warm Bodies

I'm in a rush so as much as I would like to do a long and detailed review on this book, I don't have the time to dissect it piece by piece and I wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone who has not read the book or watched the movie. Besides, there's plenty of reviews to be found online and the testimonial alone on the book cover should be enough to inspire you to read it. It's not even a thick book, a few hours should do the trick but I like to make the story last longer by reading it slowwwly.

Tapped as the zombie version of Twilight, this book is more than that and there's a lot of heart beneath the grimy mess of brains and rotting flesh. Both movie and book have their own appeal, the plots differ slightly but in the end, are basically the same. The movie's plot is somewhat watered down for its mostly young audience but both main leads did a terrific job! If you're debating whether to watch The Host or Warm Bodies first, I would say Warm Bodies. It's the better adaptation to the big screen. But watch both. Because I did!!!
