The Forest of Hands & Teeth by Carrie Ryan

A simple red flower or leaf just sets of this cover, revealing nothing to what the book is about. A simple yet eye catching cover like this one will make the book buyer stop and discover the awesome world within the pages of this book.

Besides the cover the blurb is also mysterious, It gives you light into the book yet leaves you wanting to read more and find out what happen to Mary and the village she lives in. The blurb opens your imagination to what could be in this book love, loss, life and death.

Mary has to face battles and loss more than any one her age should have to, being surrounded by the forest of hands and teeth makes it all the harder. Losing everything she was raised with is hard, but having every truth you have ever known start to come apart is worse. Facing loss and death of every thing is bearable with love, but will it be enough for Mary?

In this book we follow the journey of Mary, she has everything to live for and mysterious ocean she one day wishes to find. But one day her world is turned up side down and her dreams are put on hold to help her friends while her ocean never leaves her mind.

This book was not what you think it would be, it was so much better. The story line of this book is well written and easy to follow. You felt the emotions and pain the characters did it was that good.

A really good book and one you should read.
4 / 5
I recommend this book ti all YA fans and people that like zombies. This book was not what I would normally read but I was quite taken with this series. I plan on reading the rest of the books.
