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.

For me, it was a quick, easy, lighthearted read, but I really enjoyed it all the way through.I can't think of a word to describe most of the book other than simpl...

This is a retelling of R(omeo) and Julie(t) . . . with zombies. A zombie, R, falls in love with a human teenager, Julie, and they might have accidentally figured out a way to end the zombie apocalypse.The beginning of this book was the best part. It's kind of funny, and zombie "culture" was interest...

This book and its film adaptation have a horrible marketing team. I mean borderline brain-damaged. This is no TWILIGHT with zombies. The writing is crisp and fresh. Marion's gift for storytelling is remarkable, the way he can describe the smallest things with brilliant metaphors and similes. One of ...

Jeju co ja czytam?! Ludzie mają coraz to dziwniejsze pomysły. Kto by pomyślał, że spodoba mi się książka o Zombie? ... na pewno nie ja! Pierwszy raz spotkałam się z takim nietypowym tematem... Zaraza bądź wirus, który zmienia zwykłych spacerujących po ulicach ludzi w bezuczuciowych, żywiących się lu...
