I could not put The Forest of Hands and Teeth down! I mean, I did, because I had to go to work and stuff, but…definitely a page-turner! I was shocked to find that it isn’t exactly the mythy/folky fantasy that the title and cover suggest. I mean, to some degree it is, but it’s also something else very different, that I won’t reveal, so as not to spoil any surprises for folks other than you. Since it doesn’t even come out ’til ’09, and all. Anyway, back to something resembling a review. I found it consistently intriguing, but not overly dramatic, though the last few chapters tended toward a Hamlet-like death toll. I’m still reconciling myself to where you left the ending–I think I want to like it, but I haven’t gotten there yet. All in all, this book was a little creepy, kind of detached (in a pleasant way), and altogether a great five-star read.
