When I first started reading this book the first thing that came to my mind was the book is soo different from the movie. I know there are movies that are different from the book but this book right here is soo different from the movie. If you read my previous posts then you know I’ve already seen the movie and I really liked it. But now that I’ve read the book it feels so different. But still I liked the book but honestly I liked the movie more.
So, the first thing that is different is that the main male lead, R, is wearing a white shirt and red tie but in the movie he’s wearing a red hoodie. I know it’s just a small difference but still it changes the whole appearance of R. The next thing is he has a wife in the book. I mean not his real wife but there was a girl who is also a corpse and they get married but later on the girl forgets R because they are corpse. Eventually they had to forget each other. And then in the book the Boneys gave them two (corpse) children to adopt. But I think the kids were shown in the movie too but not as R’s kids. Then in the book the Boneys kind of accepted Julie, the main female lead, but in the movie the Boneys didn’t accepted her and wanted to kill her. And the biggest different was the ending. In the movie all the corpse and the people had like a battle with the Boneys but in the book there was no fight at the end.
But as I said earlier I liked the movie more. But if you like horror and romantic book, this book is perfect for you.
Summary by Goodreads: R is having a no-life crisis—he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he is a little different from his fellow Dead. He may occasionally eat people, but he’d rather be riding abandoned airport escalators, listening to Sinatra in the cozy 747 he calls home, or collecting souvenirs from the ruins of civilization. And then he meets a girl. First as his captive, then his reluctant guest, Julie is a blast of living color in R’s gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesn’t want to eat this girl—although she looks delicious—he wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they can’t imagine, and their hopeless world won’t change without a fight.
