R is a young man with an existential crisis--he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse. Just dreams. 

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 is a burst of vibrant color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that R lives in. His decision 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 is about being alive, being dead and the blurry line in between.


With the recent (a bit late, sorry) release of the movie, we have decided to appoint this as our first book to read and discuss for the month of April. We will be discussing this on Twitter on the 27th of April (Saturday), so don't forget to take note of the date! You can purchase a copy from http://www.opentrolley.co.id (cheapest price) or download the ebook (for free. Yes, I love you too) down below.
