Publisher's Summary

The must-listen prequel to the "strange and unexpected" (Audrey Niffenegger) and "highly original" (Seattle Times) zombie love story Warm Bodies - the New York Times best seller 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 war, societal breakdown, freak storms, and rising tides, humanity already hovered near the edge. Then came the most unexpected threat of all: the world's corpses rising up to deliver the final blow.

Born into this bleak and bloody landscape, 12-year-old Julie struggles to hold on to hope as she and her parents drive across the wastelands of America on a nightmarish road trip in search of a new home.

Hungry, lost, and terrified, 16-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....

    Story
    "The New Hunger"

    It was ok. I just finished Warm Bodies and loved it so I thought I would like this, but it can't compare to Warm Bodies for obvious reasons. It was nice to know what brought the characters to the point where we first found them in Warm Bodies, but overall I feel this mini novel was unnecessary.

    Story
    "Prequel to Warm Bodies (novel & movie)"

    "Warm Bodies" is the only zombie movie I ever liked. I have watched for this prequel story since seeing that movie about 2 years ago. It was definitely worth the wait! I think I will listen to the novel "Warm Bodies" to note any differences from the excellent movie. I sincerely hope the author will write a sequel to "Warm Bodies" and even a prequel to "The New Hunger". There are more questions I want answered . . . .

    Story
    "Not worth more than $1.00 or so"

    The story is a cute prelude to the novel, Warm Bodies. It is NOT a novella. Nothing basically happens. Since it's basically just a chapter that could have been easily added as a prologue to Warm Bodies, it goes nowhere; it has no end. CUTE, I will admit. But not a real "story." Get it only if you can get it for free.
