Teaser: Warm Bodies

It's time for a teaser. This isn't anything I've done before and I know there are more than one or two blogs out there who have a weekly feature, possibly even meme where the whole point is to entice their readers into picking up a certain book by including some form of teaser. I could go and search them out I guess, make this some kind of official Teaser post but in short, I don't want this to become an occurring feature, only for those books that deserve it, that make me think "Oh my, you need to read this!".

I'm writing this up after reading one chapter of Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion, one chapter. That's how much it grabbed my attention, ideally I'd still be reading right now but if I didn't get this post scheduled now it would probably slip my mind.

Warm Bodies (Warm Bodies #1)
About the Author:(Taken from the book itself)
Isaac Marion was born in north-western Washington
in 1981 and has lived in and around Seattle he whole
life, working a variety of strange jobs like delivering
deathbeds to hospice patients and supervising
parental visits for foster-kids. He us not married, has
no children, and did not go to college or win any 
prizes. Warm Bodies is his first novel.

About the Book:
(Taken from Goodreads)
A zombie who yearns for a better life ends up falling in love—with a human—in this astonishingly original debut novel. 
R is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He doesn’t enjoy killing people; he enjoys riding escalators and listening to Frank Sinatra. He is a little different from his fellow Dead. 
Not just another zombie novel, Warm Bodies is funny, scary, and deeply moving.

I am dead, but it's not so bad. I've learned to live with it. I'm sorry I can't properly introduce myself, but I don't have a name any more. Hardly any of us do. We loose them like car keys, forget them like anniversaries. Mine might have started with am "R", but that's all I have now. It's funny because back when I was alive, I was always forgetting other people's names. My friend "M" says the irony of being a zombie is that everything is funny, but you can't smile, because your lips have rotted off.

So that is the first paragraph of the book, there is just something about it that really sucked me in and I loved it, I love Isaac Marion's writing style and the whole concept of this book, not to mention that in the movie trailer they seem to have pinned it down perfectly too.
