Description

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.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Kevin Kenerly is wonderful as the witty hero, R, who tells us, "I am dead, but it's not so bad. I've learned to live with it." After a series of apocalyptic events, living humans occupy an "Escheresque cityscape" within a giant stadium. Outside are toppled buildings and a crumbling infrastructure, while an abandoned airport houses bloodthirsty zombies. Kenerly grunts out syllables as R discovers his inner human, feeling the need to protect, not devour, a young living beauty named Julie. R remains "gastronomically celibate" in his efforts to protect Julie, providing many wry comments and laugh-out-loud moments. 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. S.J.H.
