R is a young man with an existential crisis--he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse. Just dreams.
After experiencing a teenage boy's memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and strangely sweet relationship with the victim's human girlfriend. Julie is a burst of vibrant color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that R lives in. His decision to protect her will transform not only R, but his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world.
Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead and the blurry line in between.

Ray has been involved in theater and the performing arts since she was a wee little kindergartener and has done it all. Seriously...from being cast in community and school plays, appearing as an extra in a few movies (seen Patch Adams? She was in the crowd at the graduation scene XD), took vocal lessons, and even did professional clowning for about ten years. Though she was a gamer most of her life, she didn't discover the magic of anime and cosplay until about 3 years ago. Her friends took Ray to her first con in 2008 (Animazement) and she's been hooked ever since. She currently has about 20 cosplays and counting, but her absolute favorite character is Grell. He's just so much fun, and has become a part of her soul (no pun intended, hah!). In addition to Kuroshitsuji, other favorite animes include Chobits, Vampire Knight, and Elfen Lied.
Thank you Rachel for writing such a beautiful review. It's a pleasure having you on my blog.
I hope everyone enjoyed Rachel's review. Please leave comments for her if you'd like.
