Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

“Gruesome yet poetic…highly original.” —The Seattle Times
“Dark and funny.” —Wired
“A mesmerizing evolution of a classic contemporary myth.” —Simon Pegg
“A strange and unexpected treat…elegantly written, touching, and fun.” —Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler’s Wife
“Has there been a more sympathetic monster since Frankenstein’s?” —Financial Times

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 21, 2011 – Marion's debut, a less than successful attempt to surmount the inherent limitations of traditional zombie fiction, takes the premise that one of the walking dead, known only as R, has somehow retained a wide range of emotions in a postapocalyptic world where zombies hunt human prey. After eating the brain of a teenage boy, Perry Kelvin, and absorbing his memories, R rescues Kelvin's girlfriend, Julie Grigio, whom he takes to the airport, to the abandoned 747 commercial jet he calls home. A romance soon develops between the unlikely pair. Readers will struggle to figure out why R is different from his fellow zombies, while some of the living are oddly understanding and forgiving of R and his flesh-eating ways. R does possess a certain winsome charm and the upbeat ending will warm many hearts, but the great zombie-human love story has yet to be written.

Customer Reviews

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!

Loved it

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.

Warm Bodies

I thought this book was great, I didn't want it to end!
