The Forest of Hands and Teeth

The Forest of Hands and Teeth - Carrie Ryan The Forest of Hands and Teeth is the first novel of Carrie Ryan's post-apocolyptic Trilogy of strength, love, and triumph. From the very first few paragraphs, I was consumed into this world of death and hope. Carrie Ryan does a phenominal job of describing Mary's world, thus allowing the reader to dwelve further into her novel. You can't help but feel what Mary, the main character, must go through in deciding her fate, and those of her friends and loved ones. Carrie Ryan's writing style kept me from putting the book down. I could hear every branch snap as Mary is running through the forest. I could invision her clothes snagging on the branches of the trees. I could hear the incesant moaning of the undead scattered throughout the forest. At different points throughout the book, my heart quickened with the suspense relayed through the author's words. I stayed up many a night to continue reading this fantastic book. It ended just as quickly as it started. The merging of horror, suspense and love was done to perfection leaving the readers longing for the next installment.Totally and completely recommend this entire series to all readers. Get your feet wet with this first novel and I dare you to not crave the next two.my blogor here
