The Forest of Hands and Teeth

The Forest of Hands and Teeth - Carrie Ryan I liked this book for a few reasons. I like a good looney tunes narrator. Mary delivers on that point. I also think that it sets up an interesting world for the rest of the series (which I've heard is better). It was creepy and scary in places, and the pacing was pretty heart-stopping at times. If you can handle zombie gore, then you might enjoy those bits. I even felt like the ending was fitting, if completely tragic.
