Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

Maxim Jakubowski's view...

You might think that everything that can be has been written about zombies. Think again. This debut by a young American novelist turns all your preconceptions around and flips them like a pancake. Yes, zombies are scary, they eat brains. But they can also fall in love, in this subtle variation on Romeo and Juliet in a future America decimated by a living dead plague. Action-full, at times breathless, at others romantically touching, this is unlike anything you've read before. Highly recommended.

Who is Maxim Jakubowski


Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

Warm Bodies has been made into a movie that will be released in the UK on 8 February 2013 see a trailer below.

'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...
