The New Hunger

by Isaac Marion

The must-read prequel to the "strange and unexpected" (Audrey Niffenegger) and "highly original" (Seattle Times) zombie love story Warm Bodies--the New York Times bestseller and inspiration for the hit film--from the critically acclaimed author whose clever debut turned the classic horror story on its head.The end of the world didn't happen overnight. After years of societal breakdowns, wars and quakes and rising tides, humanity was already near the edge. Then came a final blow no one could have expected: all the world's corpses rising up to make more. Born into this bleak and bloody landscape, twelve-year-old Julie struggles to hold on to hope as she and her parents drive across the wastelands of America, a nightmarish road trip in search of a new home. Hungry, lost, and scared, sixteen-year-old Nora finds herself her brother's sole guardian after her parents abandon them in the not-quite-empty ruins of Seattle. And in the darkness of a forest, a dead man opens his eyes. Who is he? What is he? With no clues beyond a red tie and the letter "R," he must unravel the grim mystery of his existence--right after he learns how to think, how to walk, and how to satisfy the monster howling in his belly. The New Hunger is a glimpse of the past and a path to an astonishing future...

R y Julie

by Isaac Marion

«Me llevo una mano al pecho, sobre el corazón. Mi "corazón". ¿Todavía representa algo ese penoso órgano? Permanece inmóvil, sin bombear sangre, sin la más mínima utilidad, y sin embargo mis emociones todavía parecen originarse entre sus frías paredes. ¿Qué me pasa? ¿Me lo estoy imaginando todo? ¿Es un placebo? ¿Una ilusión optimista? En cualquier caso, siento que el encefalograma de mi vida se altera, formando montañas y valles con los latidos de mi corazón.» R es algo peculiar. Intenta pasárselo bien, pero es demasiado sensible y a veces se entristece. Tampoco ayuda que esté muerto, o casi muerto. Se pasa los días vagando por el aeropuerto abandonado donde vive sin saber muy bien qué sentido tiene su existencia. Hasta que conoce a Julie. R y Julie, un guiño moderno al clásico de Shakespeare Romeo y Julieta, es una historia de amor que esconde una fábula acerca de cómo vivimos dormidos, en estado catatónico, hasta que el amor irrumpe en nuestras vidas.

Warm Bodies

by Isaac Marion

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, noidentity, and no pulse, but he has dreams.After experiencing a teenage boy's memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and stragely sweet relationship with the victim's human girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. 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.
