R is a young zombie with an existential crisis. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and mindless hunger, but he craves something more than blood and brains. 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.
From the Publisher:
On Big Sawyer island, life is as steady as the routine of the lobstermen who leave with the tide each morning and return with their haul each night. But for forty-year-old New Yorker Julia Bechtel, life and what’s important in it are about to be forever altered when she survives a terrible boat accident en route to the island. Now, in the company of her aunt and daughter, Julia finds herself feeling strangely connected to the tragedy’s other survivors—Noah, a divorced lobsterman, and Kim, a young woman rendered mute since her rescue—and newly outraged at the state of her marriage to a domineering man. Seeing the world with new eyes, Julia vows to embrace life with all of its joys and uncertainties. And the journey begins on Big Sawyer. . . .
Annotation:
Isaac Marion jumps right in with the first line of his debut novel, WARM BODIES: "I am dead, but it's not so bad."The narrator, who admits that he had forgotten his own name at this point, goes on to describe what it's like to be a zombie. In the early stages of decay, R, as the narrator refers to himself, acknowledges that he's not very good looking and that he smells pretty bad. He rides escalators for fun at the abandoned airport, though, so life--or rather death--is not all that bad. When R meets Julie, however, things take a complicating turn. Although he originally intended to eat her, R has a change of un-beating heart. Theirs is a post-zombie apocalypse world, however, and a love affair between an anonymous flesh-eater and human with a pulse does not go over well.
