A friend sent me a link to a short story available online, which she found from The Bloggess:
I Am a Zombie Filled With Love is the sweetest, zombie-perspective love story you will ever read! It isn’t very long, so jump over there and read it right now! I was thrilled to read at the very end that it has become a full-length book called Warm Bodies that will be available in the U.S. in March. It is definitely going on my to-read list. I can’t wait!
Amended: It is out right now! It is being shelved at my library at this very moment, according to their website! I’ll have to run over there as early in the morning as I can drag myself out of bed (which probably means right at the crack of noon). I’m usually pretty frugal in my use of exclamation marks, but I’m just so excited!
Hah! I just went and read it. That is a combination of funny, sad, and deeply disturbing.
It reminds me of The Littlest Zombie. The character is quite different, but the tone is similar.
Well, that’s the cutest zombie love story I’ve ever read! I am generally anti-zombie because they’re icky, but that was interesting. Did you read The Passage? It was a zombie novel that everyone in the world seemed to love except me, but I wonder if zombies just aren’t my thing.
I have not read The Passage (or The Littlest Zombie, though I love the title), but maybe I should check it out. Zombies aren’t really my favorite supernatural being, because in addition to being icky, they are kind of dull, but I have been known to enjoy a zombie novel or two.
