Romeo and Juliet with zombies - a starry-eyed, sweetly comic story about the humanising power of love, even in the darkest of circumstances. Now a major film starring Nicholas Hoult.
Isaac Marion grew up in the mossy depths of the Pacific Northwest, USA, 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 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.
"I never thought I could care so passionately for a zombie. Isaac Marion has created the most unexpected romantic lead I've ever encountered, and rewritten the entire concept of what it means to be a zombie in the process. This story stayed with me long after I finished reading it. I eagerly await the next book by Isaac Marion" -- STEPHENIE MEYER "A mesmerising evolution of a classic contemporary myth" -- Simon Pegg "Warm Bodies is a strange and unexpected treat. R is the thinking woman's zombie - though somewhat grey-skinned and monosyllabic, he could be the perfect boyfriend, if he could manage to refrain from eating you. This is a wonderful book, elegantly written, touching and fun, as delightful as a mouthful of fresh brains" -- AUDREY NIFFENEGGER "A disarming writer, ruefully humorous, knowingly cinematic in scope. This is a slacker-zombie novel with a heart" * Guardian * "Warm Bodies is a terrific book - a compelling literary fantasy which is also a strange and affecting pop-culture parable" -- Nick Harkaway, author of The Gone-Away World
