Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"The post-apocalyptic world is plagued with the walking dead, and the living must scavenge and fight to survive. Told from the perspective of a zombie named R — who can remember nothing about the life he lost — Marion's novel describes R's growing sentience and his decision to save the life of teenage Julie and take her under his protection. Despite their differences, R and Julie learn to communicate, and their daily interactions bring life and color into R's world. This unusual relationship sparks changes in everyone — dead or alive — around them. As zombies aren't prone to wildly emotional episodes, narrator Kevin Kenerly's restrained delivery is perfect for R's thoughtful reflections and discoveries. With his smooth, rich voice, he is a joy to listen to and keeps the audience enthralled as the story slowly unfolds. Curious and intriguing, this gripping audiobook is both a horror and love story. An Atria Books hardcover. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
