‘R’ is a zombie. He has no name, no memories and no pulse, but he has dreams. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.
Amongst the ruins of an abandoned city, R meets a girl. Her name is Julie and she is the opposite of everything he knows – warm and bright and very much alive, she is a blast of colour in a dreary grey landscape. For reasons he can’t understand, R chooses to save Julie instead of eating her, and a tense yet strangely tender relationship begins.
This has never happened before. It breaks the rules and defies logic, but R is no longer content with life in the grave. He wants to breathe again, he wants to live, and Julie wants to help him. But their grim, rotting world won’t be changed without a fight…
‘Warm Bodies is a strange and unexpected treat. R is the thinking woman’s zombie – he could be the perfect boyfriend (though somewhat grey-skinned and monosyllabic). This is a wonderful book, elegantly written, touching and fun, as delightful as a mouthful of fresh brain’
‘Warm Bodies is a terrific book – a compelling literary fantasy which is also a strange and affecting pop-culture parable’
‘A mesmerising evolution of a classic contemporary myth’
