But Warm Bodies (the book) was really good. Marion has a great voice and created a great character in R. He's a zombie, but he's conflicted. He doesn't just want to eat brains, but wants something more in life. If you can call being a zombie, a life. (I did say he was conflicted).
I think my favorite part of the book was the voice. R was funny and sensitive, despite being a brain-hungry zombie, and intellectual. He thought about stuff, a lot. And most of that didn't get in to the movie, so you really understood his motivation a lot more in the book.

I think I liked the book better, but since I had seen the movie first, I wasn't as invested. Plus, Nicholas Hoult was perfection as R. The story itself was an unusual take on zombies and pretty refreshing. So I'd def recommend both!
