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.

Isaac Marion grew up in the mossy depths of the Pacific Northwest, where he worked as a heating installer, a security guard, and a visitation supervisor for foster children before publishing his debut novel in 2010. Warm Bodies became a #5 New York Times bestseller and inspired a major Hollywood film adaptation. It has been translated into twenty-five languages worldwide. Isaac lives in Seattle with his cat and a beloved cactus, writing fiction and music, and taking pictures of everything. Visit IsaacMarion.com for more on these endeavors.

Kevin Kenerly, an Earphones Award–winning narrator, earned a BA at Olivet College. A longtime member of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, he has acted in more than twenty seasons, playing dozens of roles.

Reviews

“I never thought I could care so passionately for a zombie. This story stayed with me long after I was done reading it.”

Warm Bodies is a strange and unexpected treat. This is a wonderful book, elegantly written, touching, and fun.”

“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”

“A mesmerizing evolution of a classic contemporary myth.”

“Marion is a disarming writer, ruefully humorous, knowingly cinematic in scope. This is a slacker-zombie novel with a heart.”

“Has there been a more sympathetic monster since Frankenstein’s?”

“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.”

“Enormous fun.”

Warm Bodies is a terrific zombook. Snuggle up to it with the lights low and enjoy a dead-lightful combination of horror and romance.”

“R does possess a certain winsome charm and the upbeat ending will warm many hearts.”

Warm Bodies is a terrific book—a compelling literary fantasy which is also a strange and affecting pop-culture parable.”

“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.”

“A jubilant story about two star-crossed lovers, one of them dead and hungry for more than love.”

“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.”
