    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, ...

    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 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.

    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.

    "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...

    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...

    From a single organism to an entire ecosystem…That is how the Warm Bodies series seems to me. From a simple love story that developed into so much more, Warm Bodies, The New Hunger, and The Burning World all provided the necessary components to create the epic finale that is The Living.The final book of the series not only wrapped up the stories of our favourite characters but also the character of the world itself. It showed that the apocalyps...

    This review will contain some spoilers so please consider avoiding reading it until after you've finished The Living!Some of the scenes are pure magic.The moment when Nora finds out M's secret, the whole episode in the church with R on stage, the big showdown regarding BABL and the very last scene of all were stunning. It's very difficult to talk about them all in detail, without giving some massive spoilers, but they made for a great read. In a ...

    * I was given this book for an honest review from Smith Publicity, Thank you!* Honestly I don’t know if I’m ready for this book. I am but I’m also sad to see this series end. I loved Warm Bodies! The emotions that come with knowing one’s self and trying to change. I live for R’s character. He’s charismatic and just the perfect zombie boy, if you’re looking to fall for that 😏 So much happens within the last book. So much relations...

    Man, what a read. Isaac Marion’s The Living is the finale in a world where metaphor had become reality and humans struggled to keep their humanity. With deep characters, a strangely familiar world, and entrancing themes of hope, change, and potential, this book has become an all time favorite. Thank you, author, for sticking with it and getting this book out to the world that needs it.

    Finished reading: November 13th 2018 "It's easier to fall than to climb, and yet against all logic, life keeps rising." *** A copy of this book was kindly provided to me by Netgalley and Zola Books in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! *** (view spoiler)[Before I start I have to make a confession and say that I probably would never have decided to read The Living if I would have read The Burning World before requesting a copy of thi...
