The Forest of Hands and Teeth

The Forest of Hands and Teeth - Carrie Ryan A very interesting take on the zombie genre for YA. I wasn't so keen on the romantic element and certain elements felt rushed - I want to know more about the Sisterhood - but Ryan created a good atmosphere and a complex, interesting heroine who's a cut above the meek, emo teens we've been subjected to in YA lit of late. The claustrophobic mood of the village and the eerie surroundings of the Unconsecrated were extremely effective. I eagerly await getting my hands of the sequel.
