zombies

In the forest of hands and teeth by Carrie Ryan

This is a great story.  What a cool idea, a group of people escaping down a pathway with fences in either side and zombies trying to get at them as they travel on the pathway which leads them to a mysterious destination.  Grand idea.  There is a rash of zombies around at the moment and this one is the cream of the crop that I’ve read.

Mary lives in a village where the Unconsecrated are desperate to get to at the villagers, and the villagers are desperate – because the Unconsecrated are their loved ones who have become infected.  Mary is torn, between wanting the guy she loves and the fact that he is attached to another, her conflicted feelings for her family and her desperate need to get out of the village and to find the ocean her mother had told her of so often.  This is a love story, a zombie action thriller, a huge adventure and a jolly good read.  I’ll be needing the next one now.  The book is just begging to be made into a movie.  The images of the lives being led up on platforms is just fantastic.
