Editorial Reviews

"Narrator Kevin Kenerly helps, too, especially since a large part of the narrative takes place inside R’s head, detailing his thoughts and feelings in an articulate, lyrical way that he’s unable to express via his extremely limited zombie vocabulary. Kenerly’s somewhat hushed tones draw the listener in right away, when R has yet to meet Julie and is instead just one more anonymous member of the undead, shuffling around an abandoned airport and occasionally venturing into the nearest city to feast on the flesh of the living. R’s musings about the end of the world and what it means to be a zombie have a stark and beautiful immediacy, and Kenerly gives them all the power and reverence they deserve." (Josh Bell)

Publisher's Summary

R is a young man with an existential crisis—he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. His ability to connect with the outside world is limited to a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. After experiencing a teenage boy’s memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and strangely sweet relationship with the victim’s human girlfriend, Julie.
Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His choice 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 explores what happens when the cold heart of a zombie is tempted by the warmth of human love.

What other book might you compare Warm Bodies to and why?

I've never read anything remotely similar.

Which character – as performed by Kevin Kenerly – was your favorite?


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It definitely had me laughing!

Any additional comments?

I loved this book!! My most unique read so far, I'd say. I loved R's mind and thinking process. He was so sweet. Isaac Marion did an excellent job. I loved hearing his progression throughout the book.

This was my first Zombie book, so I can't compare it to others. However, I never thought I'd like a book about zombies let alone love one. In my opinion, the ending was just a tad bit weak.

I wholeheartedly recommend listening to this book rather than reading the print edition. The narrator was incredible. You could tell he put a lot of hard work into reading it. I'm sure it wouldn't have been quite the same reading it for myself. Anyways, awesome!

This was...OK

Would you try another book from Isaac Marion and/or Kevin Kenerly?

Probably not.

Has Warm Bodies turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I generally like zombie books. I'm a fan of the genre, and I was excited about this new twist on the typical storyline. It was a little too juvenile for me. The teen romance parts undermined the philosophical moments R has throughout. The scene with zombie "sex" was also pretty weird.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The voice was a little whispery, which sometimes enhanced the work, but it also made it slow and it conveyed a tone that didn't always seem to fit. The voice shift for Julie was particularly difficult to enjoy.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I think R has a lot of thoughts about what it means to live as a human. These moments are pretty deep, and I enjoyed them.
