I started reading The Forest of Hands and Teeth a few weeks ago and then put it down. I can't say exactly WHY it didn't grab me. It could have been the weak boyfriend/girlfriend tension at the beginning.But, after viewing this book trailer, I am seriously going back to this book! This trailer looks great and evokes the strange setting in the book in a creepy creepy way. I have newfound interest and will finish The Forest of Hands and Teeth!
And to its further credit, I WAS getting into the setting and the premise, it was just the secondary characters, and even the main characters who were kinda bugging me with all their partner swapping at the beginning. I think I only read about 100 pages into it. Hardly fair at all!
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.
