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.

Warm Bodies
Average rating

Very unusual plot - despite the fact that it is another "zombie apocalypses" setting, the story is nothing like other zombie-stories out there. Funny, captivating, philosophical, romantic- it has it all. Highly recommend this book to anybody.

A lovely read. Full of action, and unexpected romance, this book is easy to fly through in under a week. Once you pick it up, it's near impossible to put it down. Definitely a recommended read!

I couldn't stop once I started it.

Just a tantalizing appetizer to what I'm sure will prove to be a banquet of delicately seasoned, mind-provokingly fresh ideas and perspectives from this author. I hope to be able to read more from him soon. I am sad that I devoured it in a single day.

Very enjoyable take on zombies

While it's not a masterpiece, Warm Bodies offers an interesting take on zombies. I can only hope for such a story to be written without the romance, which takes all the place here, in my opinion. That being said, I couldn't put it down once started!

This would only be the second Zombie book I ever read and both are very different than the genre entails. It was a short read but one I read in a single seating because it was interesting from the first to last page. I will defiantly be seeing the movie now and am looking even more forward to it
