Reviews The Living (Warm Bodies, #3)

  • Faith (BookSelf ~ You Are What You Read)
    Does the world deserve forgiveness? Does it deserve another chance?I was very conflicted as I read this. The overarching emotion I felt throughout was disappointment. Unlike the rest of the series, this felt like it lacked a real direction. I wasn't sure what the goal was, and what had been the established goal at the end of The Burning World was pretty much entirely forgotten until the climax. Conflicts were often repeated multiple times, or bor...

    This story covers the lives of different characters after the 'New Hunger' novella events, as well as 'The Burning World' (book 2 in the series), and the focus is the taking down of BABL, in the present day. It was a rather melancholy book, but filled with hope, and lots of religious and political undertones.My favorite of the series is Warm Bodies, and New Hunger, not so much the last two books.I hope Isaac does a less melancholy book/book serie...

    My enjoyment of this book may have been lessened because I read The Burning World so long ago, and this is basically “part 2” of that story. That said, it kinda felt like I jumped in the middle of a narrative, but that’s expected! It just was hard to do! I recommend reading them back to back, definitely. Some of the concepts in this were a little too “out there” for what I usually go for, and one scene in particular was a little silly, ...

    After having read book 2 and 3 in this series I wish I would've quit after Warm Bodies, book 1, with it's open ending. But no, I wanted more and I thought that book 2 and 3 would be as wonderful as the first book. Well, they weren't... The further the story went, the worst it got. The story is all over the place and and has too much going on. Axiom, The Boneys, The Fire Church, those whipering ancient things (still not clear to me what they were)...
  • Jess
    Honestly - I don't know how I felt about this book. The first book was light and humorous, the second not as much and this one definitely not. So it wasn't what I was expecting. Also - I didn't even understand it. So...I don't know.

    I just finished The Burning World. I love R no matter what, and I cannot wait for last book to come out! yay!
  • Danielle Zimmerman
    The Warm Bodies series and the story of a zombie filled with love has come a long way since it made its first appearance in the world. Evolving from a sort of existential Romeo and Juliet story featuring zombies into a cautionary-tale-turned-uncanny-commentary on the current world climate and now to a beacon of hope, this series encapsulates every aspect of the human condition. It may have been pitched as a story about zombies and survival, but T...

    The final installment of the Warm Bodies series is deeply thought provoking and intenseEverything comes to head in this fourth and final book in the series. Relationships are questioned, people are lost and found, old identities are discovered and new ones are forged. In the end, this series is ultimately a story about the power of choice, hope, willpower and humanity. Once you believe something is true, that belief can take over and bend reality...

    I'm so happy I read to the end of this series.

  • abdulia ortiz-perez
    I received this book from Smith Publicity Publishing for honest review! Give me Zombie! This is not my type of reading but was happy to received this cuz it was so good. Know I have to read more books of his and read more action packed books.Wow what a surprising read. Couldn’t put it down and enjoyed every minute of it. Has a nice flow right from the end of the other books to this book. Just when I thought it was ending you turned and keep the...

    I am so glad I got to read this epic ending to the Warm Bodies series!It's so beautifully written and it is a strong reminder for me to not be afraid of my external reality. The reality is always mouldable. Just be true to yourself and what you really want.

    "So f*ck no, I'm not ready. For any of this, but I know I have to do it." Me going into this book because I'm so sad that this story is over, I really just want to go back to the first book and read it all again.This is the conclusion to R's story, but it's also a story about saving the world, finding yourself and how fucked up society really is.I really love how Marion started the book by saying that this was never supposed to be a political boo...

    4.5 ☆A beautiful conclusion to an outstanding series. I don't regret spending 40€ on a physical copy, so I guess you could say I really enjoyed it.
  • Sara Grossaint
    I have been waiting for a book titled The Living by Isaac Marion ever since I closed the back cover of Warm Bodies clear back in November 2011, when I was on Thanksgiving break and had just discovered the most magical thing a person could possibly have the privilege to discover: a truly meaningful, life changing book.It took seven years and two unexpected other books from that moment until now for me to finally be able to hold and pore over a boo...

    I waited so long for this book and so was extremely nervous about how it would turn out, but it is without a doubt, the best book of the series!! Each book builds on the last. The writing and characters grow. The storyline becomes more complex and exciting with each chapter and there was nothing here that I didn't like. This is a unique world with a unique way of storytelling and I loved every minute of it.
  • Alyson Kent
    Wow. WOW! That’s all I can say for the ending of R and Julie’s story. So amazing!
  • Sarah
    3.75 stars. There were a lot of intriguing elements that I liked, and a lot of really good character development. I was satisfied with the ending and felt like everything wrapped up well. However, the book just doesn't feel like it's going to stick with me. Would've rounded down to 3 stars except getting the emails from the author while waiting for the hardcover was a really cool way to feel more connected to him and his publishing process, makin...

    To get a bigger bite out of this review, head on over to my website:**Thank you to Net Galley and Smith Publicity for providing me with an ARC for an honest review**In reading this book I feel I have broken a cardinal law that I established for myself when I took up the mantle Book Worm. I have to say that it’s not a pleasant feeling, but I think I’ll get past it once I start reading my next book. I read out of order!!! Dun-dun-d...

    Check out more reviews on my blog:http://suganyamo.wordpress.comBook Review: The Living by Isaac Marion (Warm Bodies #3) I must admit I don’t usually read zombie novels, partly because of the hype. Everybody was reading zombie books and there was just too much zombie movies and tv shows saturating the media. This book series has been in the periphery of my vision for quite some time. As this is the third book in the series, I can not reveal too...

    The Warm Bodies series that started as a sweet love story in apocalyptic era concluded in an entirely larger than life scenario with "The Living". I was so excited that I read it in a single sitting as soon as I got the e-book. I would recommend reading "The Burning World" and "The Living" back to back. Liked the way the characters developed. The plague that lives within feels like a metaphor after reading the third novel of the series. The story...

    The Basics:On the run from an undead mega-corporation bent on consuming the world, and a fire-worshipping cult that means to reduce it to ashes, R, Julie, and their friends take to the roads, crossing the burnt out-shell of a U.S that’s in the process of remaking itself. They’re not sure what it’s remaking itself into, or whether they themselves might have a say in the answer, but before they can stop to find out, there’s one enemy that m...

    Have you ever just finished a book because you’ve gone too far in the series to just quit? Yeah...😏 I gave three stars Very generously. I know how hard Mr. Marion worked to get this manuscript to his waiting fans. There were great parts of the book, the final chapters, for example, were beautiful. Unfortunately, all of the political and angry anti-church rants were very distracting, disappointing, and difficult for me to push through. I’m ...
