“Marion’s novel is even better [than the movie], digging deep into sardonic observations about humanity, comic takes on zombie behavior and stirring reflections on what it really means to be alive or dead.”
“Elegantly written, touching, and fun.”
Marion explores the meaning of humanity through R’s journey towards personhood, a tale that gets grander in scale as his empathy builds and the book’s true villains—cynicism, apathy and status quo—are revealed.
I loved this book, truly, madly, deeply. Warm Bodies is one of the most surprising zombie novels I’ve ever read, and easily on the shortlist for one of my favorite books of 2011.
