The Forest of Hands and Teeth

Hi you guys! So It's been a minute since I posted here so I decided to sort of write a book review for a book a recently read, The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Before I do I just want to say that as an upcoming self-published author all the support and help I have gotten so far means so much to me. :)

The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #1)

Title: The Forest of Hands and Teeth
Author: Carrie Ryan
Publisher: Gollancz
Pages: 310
Publication Date: March 10th, 2009
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

*Potential Spoilers*
Goodreads Synopsis:

In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?

What I Thought:

The Forest of Hands and Teeth follows Mary as she and a few survivors from her village travel along a fence trying to find safety after the village was destroyed by zombies. TFHT is the first book to ever actually make me cry at the end. This book, to me, was so very powerful and amazing and depressing all at the same time. My heart seriously went out to Mary and the predicament she was in. It's like life just wouldn't give her a break!

The charcter I didn't like was Mary's brother. Even though the brother sort of redeems himself in the end he was just such a jerk to Mary through out the book that I just thought that he got what he deserved by the end. TFHT is the first zombie book I've ever read completely and I am sort of on the fence about reading another. At the end of TFHT I found myself balling like a baby. I did enjoy this book though...sort of..but I would only reccommend for serious zombie lovers.
