In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?
Its funny how it took me a week to read the first 3 chapters of this book, and then out of no where I can't stop reading and I end up awake at 6 A.M. done with the whole book.
I honestly can't decide if I liked the book or not. Well, I did like it but I just can't decide if I loved it. It clearly had me intrigued or else I wouldn't have stayed awake the entire night just to find out if a bit of hope pops up at the end of the book. The plot was good, and it reminded me a lot of The Village. I also liked the characters. Well with Mary I kind of went from liking her to disliking her to not feeling anything at all.
I felt very hopeless through out the whole book. Every time I thought there was a little hope it would turn out to be the opposite. But I still really enjoyed the story. It was different from anything I'd read for a while. And I almost almost cried at the toward the end.
