    1. Considering I recently reviewed GODS OF THE JUNGLE PLANET, it s really unfortunate that THIS is the worst book I ve read in a long time Real review is under construction, below this line It ain t finished I m sure some of you who made the decision to read The Forest of Hands and Teeth will decide to go ahead and read the rest of the series DON T No, really you ve seen all there is to see If book one was an iMac, this sucker right here is an early model of Windows Vista In fact, my goal in writin [...]

    2. Gabry, the main character of this story, is lacking in the crazy ass psycho department that her mother so nicely managed during her debut in The Forest of Hands and Teeth.This story is about self discovery With Zombies.Which actually makes a lot of sense.In what I can only assume is stupidity gone rampant amongst teens, Gabry is convinced to go out past their safe border and into a closed and derelict theme park.It isn t a spoiler when I tell you that things quickly turn to shit because, really, [...]

    3. I m torn with the rating I gave this book It deserves than three stars but I wouldn t say I really liked it So, even though I like this book than I like it s companion, The Forest of Hands and Teeth, I gave it the same amount of stars Quick review In The Forest of Hands and Teeth we were introduced to Mary, a not entirely likable teenage girl living in a remote village reminiscent of the village in M Night Shyamalan s The Village Mary s village is fenced off from the surrounding forest which i [...]

    4. Four or five FOUR OR FIVE FOUR OR FIVE Let s see how I m feeling by the end of the review Okay, this book kinda takes place where the last one left off Give or take twenty to thirty years Instead of the lovely Mary, the narrator this time is Mary s daughter, Gabry Now, I understand most of you are like OMG, who s the father I know I was But I can t say for threat of being flagged as a spoiler Anyway, Gabry has a very different upbringing from her mother She lives in a lighthouse on the outskirts [...]

    5. I wasn t a fan of The Forest of Hands and Teeth, but I wanted to give the author a second chance Like the previous book, the writing is choppy, monotonous, and repetitive The same thoughts and sentences are strewn throughout the pages The author uses silly similes, instead of actually describing things I grew weary of hearing how everything was like something else Even annoying was the constant use of almost and of as if almost running, almost touching, almost clawing, almost raw Why can t the [...]

    6. OK, I m done with this DONE I m having a REAL hard time justifying even attempting to finish this Why Let me count the ways There will be spoilers Click them at your own risk 1 Gabry For real, she s annoying as hell She s cowardly and weak and useless and annoying, has a chip on her shoulder the size of an undead zombie horde, feels betrayed by everyone and everything ever and just generally pisses me off At this point, she could do this amazing 180 turnaround and achieve RE Alice like badassery [...]

    7. Dead Tossed Waves is a great example where the sequel outshines the first installment by far I had no intention of reading this book as The Forrest of Hands and Teeth was a disappointment for me at least But after reading continuous rave reviews and trusting my fellow avid readers that this book was a hit, I gave it a try and it was well worth it IMHO I really enjoyed this story so much than the first book, as I feel Carrie Ryan truly displayed growth in her writing abilities, as evidence by th [...]

    8. I had some real issues with The Forest of Hands and Teeth mostly revolving around my extreme dislike of the main character Usually disliking a main character is a deal breaker for me and it is lucky for me to even finish the book let alone read a sequel Luckily, the world building in The Forest of Hands and Teeth was amazing I wanted to learn about how civilization came to such a state, what was going on with the secretive sisterhood and everything else I could about the world Carrie Ryan creat [...]

    9. Wow You never think that a sequel will equal its predecessor, but Carrie Ryan has managed to do itd I even liked it better The Forest of Hands and Teeth blew me away with its creative setting and premise and with its strong female lead, but when I got hold of The Dead Tossed Waves I could NOT put it down Told from the point of view of Mary s daughter, Gabry, its about a girl who is forced to step outside of her safe world and learn what courage is In contrast to her mother, Mary, Gabry is timid [...]

    10. FINAL EDIT Everything after the line below this is pretty much my play by play rantings as I listened to the book What s right here is the condensed version of my thoughts, having finally finished it.The Dead Tossed Waves is the sequel to The Forest of Hands and Teeth, a book I found decently entertaining, mainly due to its world building Picking up where the first book left off, TD TW scratches most of the world building, having already been largely established, for vast, vast amounts of intern [...]

    11. I had mixed feelings upon finishing the Forest of Hands and Teeth I loved the world building, the mythos and the plot, but had trouble liking the protagonist But I did enjoy the book overall and had no hesitation ordering the second novel in the series.The second book features Mary s daughter, Gabry Gabry is definitely a sympathetic character than her mother and I enjoyed her journey a lot than that of her mother I was able to connect with the character and empathize with her pathos in a way I [...]

    12. So the book is about running, like the first one And like the first one, Gabry Mary s daughter , is also stuck between two men Unlike Mary though, she finally makes up her mind The problem is that it takes the whole book to get there, and up until the last 50 pages, the book was so slow it was unbearable There s too much talking about how the world goes too fast, and things changed too fast, and how she wants to go back She is completely incapable to see reality in front of her She has no backbo [...]

    13. So I started this before I went to bed last night and of course stayed up ALL night to finish it I wound up sitting in my bed going through half a roll of TP Now I have a wonderful headache and feel like I have a hangover this morning because my ass is way to old for that My kids are appreciating my grumpiness too I don t even know how to rate it It just about took me out and I m not even sure why I must be having some woman issues or some shit All I can say is DANG

    14. Gabry, Mary s daughter, fears life and love She seems to blame herself for everything that happens, including the poor choices of the other characters I have not read so much whining and self loathing since Bella Swan This companion to The Forest of Hands and Teeth didn t advance the story of life after the Return and left little hope for the characters futures.Still, Carrie Ryan s writing is beautiful with moments of tenderness, longing, and tragedy.

    15. Pretty much a letdown I really enjoyed the companion novel, The Forest of Hands and Teeth, and I figured that this story would add to the world created in that book Unfortunately, it didn t and I even feel like the original story s effect is diminished because of this books incessant attempt at playing it safe Not only did this book not add to the post Return mythos, it didn t add anything to the pre Return storyline either There is a lot of mystery left to explore at the end of the first book r [...]

    16. 1.5 starsI hated this book It was just plain awful I hardly enjoyed the first one, but all the reviews I read said the sequel was way better It is If you enjoy reading the same plot structure, another lame love triangle, and a main character who is even whiny and selfish than the first one, that is.The beginning was promising, and I even posted in my status update how much I was liking it than the first book They sneak into an abandoned amusement park, which was a stupid plan that made no sens [...]

    17. I was surprised to find that this book didn t take off where the first one left off Instead, we re treated to a larger world than just the Forest of Hands and Teeth, one where humanity is surviving a little less desperately than Mary s villages In this book, we get to know Mary s daughter Gabry, who has grown up in the relative safety of an ocean village, the Unconsecrated a danger they are warned about but never seem to encounter Until the night the book starts, of course.This book was an aweso [...]

    18. Oh, Carrie Ryan, you break my heart At times while reading it, I wanted to give it 5 stars At others, I wanted to throw it across the room and give it 1 star Well, I never give 1 star, but you get the idea But damn, she writes a good book I just have to remind myself that 5 stars doesn t necessarily have to equal happy I also have to remind myself that just because a character occassionally might act like a bitch, a crybaby, a scaredy cat, or an idiot, it doesn t mean she s not a good character [...]

    19. If anything, The Dead Tossed Waves is as much about what it is to be a teenaged girl, as it is about the walking dead Sure, there s no shortage of creepy corpses, and we know everything has gone to hell on earth, and the zombies are winning But it isn t the mudo that kept me up past one o clock in the morning finishing the story, it was Gabry s emotion Reading this, not only could I remember what it was like to be 16 and in love, I could almost feel it Remember that When nothing else could ever [...]

    20. Sadly, this book left me feeling pretty cross towards Carrie Ryan I wanted to love this book with every page, but in the end, I can t And yet it came so close to being amazing.I think that Ryan is a talented writer Her world building is vivid and believable, though it does build on the work of others She can craft stunningly creepy scenarios Imagine traveling through the Forest at night You can hear the zombies all around you, but you can t see them The only thing keeping them from eating or tur [...]

    21. The Dead Tossed Waves seriously surprised me While I still had similar problems that I had with the first book, Ryan s wonderful prose kept me gripped throughout She has a serious gift for creating fear out of the small moments and that which we find to be so normal, like the ocean water zombies FTW The feeling of claustrophobia, even in the wide open spaces that Gabry lives in, is constant, and Ryan does a fantastic job of crafting a secret filled, constraining society in a situation where one [...]

    22. OMG I m so happy this was my 100 read book And like this book that the first one but ot was really FRUSTRATING Sometimes i really wanted to kick Gabry and tell her HEY CAN YOU SEE WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU ARE BRAVE, LIKE YOUR MOTHER, hell, YOUR REALLY ARE Spanish review also here librosjuveniles55 LO MAS IMPORTANTE El libro empieza con un habiente rapido,las cosas al principio suceden con mucha rapidez que apenas te dan tiempo para asimilar las cosas despues de los primeros capitulos la historia [...]

    23. 4.5 StarsIn all honestly, I had no intentions what so ever for reading this book I didn t really care for the first one,The Forest of Hands and Teeth, and while I think the writing was fantastic, I found the tone of that book to be absolutely miserable, depressing and painful.So, when I found this at my library, I got curious and looked up reviews and realized that this isn t Mary s story, and that it was about her daughter, Gabry That got me mighty curious and I m so glad I took this chance, ca [...]

    24. Warning Spoilers and CursingMan, this book pissed me off The first book, was a complex story of a girl who did not understand the world around her, and as she struggled to find her place in the world, frakking zombies appeared everywhere It was awesome This second story follows Gabry, the daughter of the Mary from the first book, and her struggles to find herself and love, and zombies of course However, there was a similar love triangle, and Gabry herself, is completely annoying I get that she i [...]
