Warm Bodies (Warm Bodies, #1) by Isaac Marion
Isaac Marion is a terrific writer. He's good with characters, words, metaphor, plot, story, and message. This book's simplicity allows its heart to shine through. There's not a lot of realism in the post-zombie world he's created, but in the sentiment. Even for a misanthropic cynic like me, who is almost pathologically uninspireable, this book was moving and hopeful. I mean, no, I don't believe "love" can save us from our zombiehood, but it was nice to imagine for a second that it could.
