R is a young man with an existential crisis—he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. His ability to connect with the outside world is limited to a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. After experiencing a teenage boy’s memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and strangely sweet relationship with the victim’s human girlfriend, Julie. Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His choice to protect her will transform not only R but his fellow Dead and perhaps their whole lifeless world. Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies explores what happens when the cold heart of a zombie is tempted by the warmth of human love.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I never thought I could care so passionately for a zombie. This story stayed with me long after I was done reading it.” Stephenie Meyer, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Twilight series
“Warm Bodies is a strange and unexpected treat. This is a wonderful book, elegantly written, touching, and fun.” Audrey Niffenegger, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Time Traveler’s Wife
“Isaac Marion has a great new voice that hooks you from page one and accomplishes the impossible: it makes you care about zombie love. Warm Bodies is a terrific read” Josh Bazell, New York Times bestselling author of Beat the Reaper
“A mesmerizing evolution of a classic contemporary myth.” Simon Pegg, actor, Shaun of the Dead
“Marion is a disarming writer, ruefully humorous, knowingly cinematic in scope. This is a slacker-zombie novel with a heart.” Guardian (UK)
“Has there been a more sympathetic monster since Frankenstein’s?” Financial Times (London)
“The words Marion uses to describe his grim near-future are silken smooth. They slip through the mind’s grasp easily, pleasurably, leaving hardly a hint of themselves in the images they evoke.” Seattle Times
“Enormous fun.” Marie Claire (UK)
“Warm Bodies is a terrific zombook. Snuggle up to it with the lights low and enjoy a dead-lightful combination of horror and romance.” Examiner.com
“R does possess a certain winsome charm and the upbeat ending will warm many hearts.” Publishers Weekly
“Warm Bodies is a terrific book—a compelling literary fantasy which is also a strange and affecting pop-culture parable.” Nick Haraway, author of The Gone-Away World
“Narrator Kevin Kenerly is wonderful as the witty hero, R…With a tender love story at its heart, Isaac Marion’s refreshing, brainy novel might be retitled Romeo and Juliet with Zombies. Kevin Kenerly’s performance will win your heart.” AudioFile
“A jubilant story about two star-crossed lovers, one of them dead and hungry for more than love.” Kirkus Reviews
“Both tender and lacerating, this zombie novel has more to say about being alive than being dead. ‘Love’ is not a strong enough word for my feelings about this book.” Maggie Stiefvater, author of the Shiver trilogy
