Helloooo everyone :3 I just read the forest of hands and teeth; here's what I think about it:
young-adult, zombie apocalypse, dystopian
I did not even know what this book was about when I started reading, I just loved the title and saw that it was good on the internet, so I went to the library and borrowed it.
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?
-^the back of the book ^-
I just LOVED the book. I did not know that the book was about zombies, but that made it even more awesome!! (I am a friggin' zombie lover O.o) The girl in the book, Mary, is not a very stupid character. Actually, she is a pretty good girl. Why does everything have to happen to her. She is so strong. You also have the character Travis. I really think he's a jerk!! Seriously, he is married, but loves someone else, who is also married (to his brother!!) and loves him. But, he did not go for her because his brother loved her. It just makes no sense o.o . Then there is Mary's brother, Jed. He also is a very good character, and also for him counts, why does all the bad stuff have to happen to him?! Seriously what was wrong with the author?
Then you also have the future world. It seems like the zombies (the Unconsecrated) have taken over everything, including all people. It's just horrible to see how the world will be in this future. Let's all be happy that our world is not like that one...
The whole point of the book is actually this Mary girl looking for the sea.
the ending of the book:
!! full of spoilers !!
After everyone died (yeah, every single person I really loved or hated in this book ;c ) Mary finally finds the sea, and meets a men there. That's the ending, that's it. Love the ending, it is super-sad. But because of that it is just perfect.
goodreads: 3.62 / 5.0
mine: 4 stars / 5 (or 8.3 / 10)
there's gonna be a friggin' MOVIE O.o (with Kristin Stewart who'll hopefully not ruin the whole movie... :S)
also, there's a part 2 :D Gonna try to read it as soon as possible!!
