The Living: A Warm Bodies Novel | Isaac Marion
7 posts | 5 read | 5 to read
The New York Times bestselling Warm Bodies Series has captivated readers in twenty-five languages, inspiring a major film and transcending the zombie genre to become something "poetic" ( Library Journal ) "highly original" ( Seattle Times ) and "ultimately moving" ( Time Out London ). Now the story of a dead man's search for life reaches its conclusion on a scale both epic and intimate. Before he was a flesh-eating corpse, R was something worse. He remembers it all now, a life of greed and apathy more destructive than any virus, and he sees only one path to redemption: he must fight the forces he helped create. But what can R, Julie, and their tiny gang of fugitives do against the creeping might of the Axiom Group, the bizarre undead corporation that's devouring what's left of America? It's time for a road trip. No more flyover country. This time they'll face the madness on the ground, racing their RV across the wastelands as tensions rise and bonds unravelbecause R isn't the only one hiding painful secrets. Everyone is on their own desperate search: for a kidnapped daughter, a suicidal mother, and an abused little boy with a gift that could save humanity... if humanity can convince him it's worth saving. All roads lead home, to a final confrontation with the plague and its shareholders. But this is a monster that guns can't kill. A battle only one weapon can win... p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; min-height: 14.0px}

Every choice has a price. We all owe a debt to this world for the things we take from it, right or wrong, cruel or kind. But these laws are soft, these laws are alive, and sometimes a debt is forgiven.

Since the day I met Julie, I‘ve been trying to keep her safe. But what I‘ve come to realize is that Julie will never be safe, because she doesn‘t want to be. She wants to fight hard and love hard and eat life raw and bleeding. So I won‘t try to keep her out of danger. If it‘s time for war, I won‘t hold her back. I‘ll charge in beside her and make sure we win.

ErinSueMreads I loved this movie so much. The books have been on my tbe forever! 9mo
Jerlynn @ErinSueMreads I would highly suggest putting the books high on your TBR list because they are incredible. Absolutely amazing. The first might be my favorite, but the last book (3) had me in a mess of tears and I love it so so dearly. The writing was phenomenal and I couldn't recommend these books more. (edited) 9mo

My mind is a small room lined with bookcases, but when I reach into the shelves, I find no wall behind them. My thoughts push through my skull into some deeper space beyond.

"There is no such final dusk. No death. No ending. No ceiling to stop our ascent. The ladder goes up forever, and we have just begun to climb."
