"Eating is not a pleasant business. I chew off a man’s arm, and I hate it. I hate his screams, because I don’t like pain, I don’t like hurting people, but this is the world now. This is what we do. Of course, if I don’t eat all of him, if I spare his brain, he’ll rise up and follow me back to the airport, and that might make me feel better. I’ll introduce him to everyone, and maybe we’ll stand around and groan for a while. I’ts hard to say what “friends” are anymore, but that might be close. If I restrain myself, if I leave enough . . .
But I don’t. I can’t. As always I go straight for the good part, the part that makes my head light up like a picture tube. I eat the brain, and for about thirty seconds, I have memories. Flashes of perfume, music . . . life. Then it fades, and I get up, and we all stumble out of the city, still cold and gray, but feeling a little better. Not “good,” exactly, not “happy,” certainly not “alive,” but . . . a little less dead. This is the best we can do."
Have you read Warm Bodies? It is one my favorite books EVER and it has everything. Pad Thai, agony, reverse engineering, hunger & zombie love. It is a MUST READ. I highly recommend it and it will go so well with one of these magnificent beasts.
