MY RATING⇢ 4 STARS | GRADE B+


MY THOUGHTS


If you felt you were cheated by Warm Bodies because of the lack of zombie murdery type scenes...then this prequel should help fulfill that need.  While still taking a deeper, more literary look into the zombie apocalypse scenario, it shows Julie at the age of 12 and first made her way to Seattle with her parents. It has a second POV from R when he first becomes a zombie and lastly a third POV, which is pivotal to R's story.  The world, overall, that the author has created is a thought-provoking take on zombies.

At around 190 pages this is all story and no filler with previews of other books.  Also, did you know that there are two more books after Warm Bodies?  I knew about The Burning World, but there is also a third full novel-sized book...titled The Living, but so far it's only available on Kindle, I'm hoping they make an Audio Version as well since it's over 400 pages.
