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

The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #1) Imagine a village, in a forest.

Sounds lovely no? Now add a fence surrounding it, also add some zombies. Now it doesn’t sound so lovely.
Welcome in the world where Mary lives. A world where zombies took over and the living live in small communities surrounded by fences.

The book was great. I loved the settings, loved the secrets that slowly unfolded.
I didn’t always like Mary, sometimes she was just a bit to egotistical. She is willing to sacrifice a whole lot just for a story she heard when she was little. A story about the ocean. And she won’t stop until she gets there, no matter what it takes. I didn’t like that she couldn’t pick between the two brothers and how she just went from one to the other.

I still hope that we will find out more about how the zombies came in existence in the next books, because not many questions were answered.
I would also love to know why the sisters sent Gabrielle to the zombies. Was there a reason? Was she turning or did they just not want anyone to know about the other villages.

The ending was too sudden. What happened to the other people? Where did she go? Was she just accepted like that? From what I can see the next book is about Mary’s daughter. I just hope in the book they will let us know what happened and not just skip and let us in the dark.

Good book for everyone looking for mystery and zombies. 🙂
