I have been anxiously anticipating Carrie Ryan's sequel to the unexpectedly addicting Forest of Hands and Teeth. I didn't care for the narrator of that story who had all the wrong inflections, but Tara Sands does a fantastic job with Gabry in The Dead-Tossed Waves. It's utterly readable (or listenable) I finished it in less than 24 hours as I simply could not put it down. I'm assuming this is the 2nd in a series and I cannot wait for the next one!

Would you try another book from Carrie Ryan and/or Tara Sands?
I read "The Forest of Hands and Teeth" and loved the book. However, this next book in the series was a total disappointment. The main character was annoying, the voice read was annoying, and the story was pretty lame. Sorry Carrie. I'm not sure if I would try another one.
What could Carrie Ryan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
The character was so whiny and weak. The love triangle was predictable. The zombies in the forest didn't feel threatening. What happened to the imagery of the girl in red running around? What happened to the thrill against the moments of calm to catch your breath in the first one? Honestly, it might have been the read. Her voice drove me crazy--especially when she tried to read guys. The only fun part of the book was when she used her mothers book to figure out the maze. More of that ---less teen drama. When you live in the apocalypse you don't care about teen drama.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
She was whiny, and she did horrible male voices.
