The Plot

R is having a no-life crisis—he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he is a little different from his fellow Dead. He may occasionally eat people, but he’d rather be riding abandoned airport escalators, listening to Sinatra in the cozy 747 he calls home, or collecting souvenirs from the ruins of civilization. And then he meets a girl. First as his captive, then his reluctant guest, Julie is a blast of living color in R’s gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesn’t want to eat this girl—although she looks delicious—he wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they can’t imagine, and their hopeless world won’t change without a fight!

My Thoughts

So whoa! This was such a great book! I had originally watched the movie first and then found out more about the books. I ended up ordering this on thriftbooks b/c my dear friend Allie suggested this for the club I started with my friends. I am really glad she picked this as the book delves into so much of a deeper meaning than what is seen on paper.

This book shows us how one person can change the course for others and how they can ignite a spark inside someone. We see how the main hero, “R” falls for this human girl Julie and how she makes him feel alive and literally by her love she becomes alive. The whole theme of this book centers around change and making a difference in the world.

From this small excerpt you can almost feel the writer begging for his readers to do the same. This quote is simply amazing and moves you. The writing is flawless and the character development was beautifully executed. This book while being a short read of only 200 some odd pages will have you begging for the next installment in the series. Definite a 5 star read!
