Review: The Dark and Hollow Places


The Dark and Hollow Places
The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



The final instalment did not disappoint me. It was quite the opposite... perfect for leaving enough room of hope in a dark, and bitter dystopia full of zombies ready to tear you apart. I liked the main character, Annah and her constant struggle to survive and keep whatever humanity was left inside her. I really enjoyed reading these books. And I applaud Carrie Ryan's intense approach to life and death, love and sorrow.
It will most likely take you to those dark and hollow places you really wish didn't exist... but you know they do.

Review: The Dead-Tossed Waves


The Dead-Tossed Waves
The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



This book was completely mind blowing. It's so much better that the first one. It keeps the readers on edge through and through trying to prevent despair rule on Gabrielle's life. I was awestruck by its storytelling and its dreadful images.

It tells the story of Gabrielle, she is the daughter of Mary from the first book, 'The Forest of Hands and Teeth' and how her life changes one night after the Mudo/Unconsectrated appear in her way.

Review: The Forest of Hands and Teeth

The Forest of Hands and Teeth
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



It took me some time to really fully understand this book. It describes the road to madness that the main character does, living in a town surrounded by a fence and a forest of undead -zombies, hell yeah!

At first I wasn't convinced about the motives and events surrounding Mary's actions, but after careful consideration it really makes sense (if zombies and a post apocalyptic life exists). She goes crazy and the book describes this madness flawlessly. It does reminds me on some parts of M. Night Shyamalan's 2004 movie "The Village" which brings the whole creepiness of zombies, village life, and an outside "hope" to a different level.
I recommend it to anyone who wants to have a glimpse of despair, adventure and zombies!!!
