R is a zombie. He has no name, no memories, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He is different from his fellow Dead. Amongst the ruins of an abandoned city, R meets a girl. Warm and fierce and very much alive, Julie is a blast of colour in a dreary grey landscape; she means more than flesh and blood. Something imperceptible shifts, a switch is flicked, and R suddenly finds he wants to save Julie instead of eating her; he wants to protect her, whatever happens. This has never happened before. This is against all the rules and beyond all expectations. R begins to have new thoughts and feelings and powerful longings, and together he and Julie attempt to bring the whole decaying world back from the dead.

Reviews for Warm Bodies (#1 Warm Bodies)

I never thought I could care so passionately for a zombie. Isaac Marion has created the most unexpected romantic lead I've ever encountered, and rewritten the entire concept of what it means to be a zombie in the process. This story stayed with me long after I finished reading it. I eagerly await the next book by Isaac Marion -- Stephenie Meyer A mesmerising evolution of a classic contemporary myth -- Simon Pegg Warm Bodies is a strange and unexpected treat. R is the thinking woman's zombie - though somewhat grey-skinned and monosyllabic, he could be the perfect boyfriend, if he could manage to refrain from eating you. This is a wonderful book, elegantly written, touching and fun, as delightful as a mouthful of fresh brains -- Audrey Niffenegger Warm Bodies is a terrific book - a compelling literary fantasy which is also a strange and affecting pop-culture parable -- Nick Harkaway, Author Of The Gone-Away World A disarming writer, ruefully humorous, knowingly cinematic in scope. This is a slacker-zombie novel with a heart Guardian
