In Warm Bodies, Isaac Marion’s New York Times bestselling novel that inspired a major film, a zombie returns to humanity through an unlikely encounter with love.
“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 house 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.

Better Than I Imagined
When I first heard of this book, and read some short one paragraph teasers for it, I immediately thought, "oh god, not another twilight." I became curious, and downloaded the sample and read the first 13 some pages. I became ultimately addicted, bought the book, and finished it in one day. I do not have a single regret. I love this book and R, more than the world will ever know! If you are a gore loving, zombie obsessed person, with a soft spot for sappy hopeless romanticism, like me, this book, (which is soon to be a major motion picture!) is PERFECT for you!
Really enjoyed the dialog. Was very witty and enjoyable. Definitely wish it was a bit longer and hoped the ending was explained further but all in all would definitely suggest to others.
I thought this book was great, I didn't want it to end!
