Description
The New York Times bestseller and major motion picture R is a young man with an existential crisis--he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, noidentity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. After experiencing a teenage boy's memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and stragely sweet relationship with the victim's human girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His decision 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 is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.

display_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
"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.

Isaac Marion's genre-defying Warm Bodies series startled the literary world with its poignant subversion of the zombie mythos, inspiring a major film adaptation and being translated into twenty-seven languages.
