And then he meets a girl.
First as his captive, then his reluctant house guest, Julie is a blast of living color in R’s gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesn’t want to eat this girl—although she looks delicious—he wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they can’t imagine, and their hopeless world won’t change without a fight.

Popular Answered Questions
1. It is a zombie book. But not like that. In the spirit of honesty, I had this book as an advanced review copy for literally months before I picked it up. It had glowing reviews from Stephanie Meyer, so I figured it couldn’t be that gross, and a glowing quote from Audrey Niffeneggar, so I figured it had to be well-written. But . . . zombies. Hopeless gore. I have a pretty strict disinterest in zombies that I break only for Carrie Ryan’s books. I’m not going to tel ...more

Lessons learned from R (who happens to be a zombie)
1. Sometimes you are up, and sometimes you are down. That is until the power goes out and you are stuck.
2. Freaking out is not going to help, instead get married!
3. Sometimes a little brain goes a long way, unless of course you just ate the last of it, and then you are so screwed.
4. It is not our words but our actions that speak loudest regarding who we are.

I mean, it is about a young adultish human and zombie who fall in love and set about to change the world with love. But this is not a young adult novel.
It has themes of young love and disaffected youth and hopeful new beginnings but this is not a young adult novel, people!
Regardless of what it is, it’s a pretty good novel, but I have a confession. This is going to translate in people’s minds as me being simplistic and unable to handle the deeper, more complicated ...more
'R' is a zombie with personality. Not very common, right? Even the other zombies think he is odd. He longs for memories...for life. When he eats the brain of a young man named Perry and saving a human girl, thi ...more
Try imagining the most disgusting relationship in the history of mankind. Are you done yet? Need some help?
(view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]
Now multiply that feeling of disgust by ten. Or even better, by a hundred. Oookay. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling pretty nauseous here.
If you’ve got it, try thinking of a way to make that feeling and that relationship adorable. You heard me! Adorable. I thought it was impossible too, but I w ...more
I was quite skeptical, as well as intrigued, when I was sent "Warm Bodies" to review. I would never have imagined putting "zombie" and "romance" in the same sentence. I assumed the putrid decomposition of flesh and the eating of brains would have been a bit of a turn off.
After reading the first page I didn't know whether I would be able to take this book seriously: a zombie romance? And with quotes like these...

This book, however, is fresh in my mind due to the author himself making some recent comments that he's not altogether thrilled about some book stores shelving his book as Young Adult instead of A ...more
HOLY. MOTHER. OF. ALL. THAT. IS. GORGEOUS.
Could any amount of my insignificant words fully encompass the greatness of this book? The answer here is no, no because the words printed on each copy of Warm Bodies are already tuned to a vast perfection greater than the sky itself. Isaac Marion..I applaud you, I give you ten million standing ovations, I declare you to be a master ...more
Warm Bodies is more like a post-apocalyptic version of Romeo and Juliet where Romeo kills Paris and marries Juliet. In Isaac Marion's version R kills Perry who is trying ...more
I'm so freakin excited to be starting this!!! Anyone who knows me well, knows that I have a love for all things zombies. So when my sis told me about a zombie romance, I said hell yeah I need to read this!!! I'm ready for some Zombie love!! Buddy read with Marta, Brenda and Rosanna!
Can't wait to meet the very interesting and very dead "R"
I only read this book because I was expecting blood, gore and mild necrophilia.
Instead, I got a beautifully poetic book full of immaculately developed characters and gorgeous prose that demolished the well-worn cliches of zombie literature and everything I thought I knew about those old shufflers.
Man I hate it when I don't get what I want.
None of us are particularly attractive, but death has been kinder to me than some. I'm still in the early stages of decay. Just the grey skin, the unpleasant smell, the dark circles under my eyes. I could almost pass for a Living man in need of a vacation.

The movie as far as book adaptations was surprisingly good. I’m always waiting to be disappointed by movie adaptations, but this was not the case here. There were some o ...more
If you've seen the movie: The book is significantly different enough to be worth a go. The relationship between R and Julie's boyfriend is deeper and more important in the book than in the movie. The "boneys" are symb ...more
Prepare yourselves for the...
Yep, just imagine a post-apocalyptic earth, where almost everyone you knew is dead or a living dead.
Where in order to survive people are gathered in stadiums,to seek refuge and to train to survive.
Now imagine, the zombies. People who used to be like us but because of the curse or this virus, they become someone else. They had to feed on the living, they don't remember their name, what they used to be, or even to talk.
And here enters R , our hero or I must say, our a ...more
My theme word for this one is 'potential'. I knew the premise, I watched the trailer, I saw the glowing praise from Stephenie Meyer of all people emblazoned on the back cover. Basically, I knew what I was getting myself into.
True to expectations, it wasn't the most masterfully written thing under the sun. I've never read 'On the Road', but it was obvious that the author had. Waxing on in attempts ...more
Okay, I found the words. Hit it.
The zombie canon gets hit with a much-needed curveball across the chin, courtesy of first-time novelist Isaac Marion: what if zombies actually had feelings, feelings of ambivalence and longing inside, while dead on the outside? Warm Bodies tackles that head on, w ...more
This doesn't feel like a zombie book at all. I mean it is full with gory creatures that are hungry for brains but it is much more than that. The whole book is a parallelism that represents a very strong message: Happiness is hidden in the smallest things-Live your life to the fullest. Oh, and don't forget: It is ...more
