The Forest of Hands and Teeth
This was an odd take on the zombie theme, but I really liked it. There were several points in the plot line that were predictable, but not in a way that really ruined the story. It was a light read, easy to listen to. I recommend it as a book to enjoy when you aren’t in the mood to really think hard. 🙂 Sometimes it is nice for the surface story to be the only story that there is! There are some under currents in this novel, but it really isn’t anything super complex.
Vane did a wonderful job reading this story. I believe it is the first book that I have listened to her narrate and I enjoyed her performance. And it was a performance. She was compelling in the way that she read the different characters. Nothing felt forced or over done. I find it really hit or miss when a narrator tries to turn it into a performance rather then a reading. But in this case, it worked really well.
