Gabry, the main character of this story, is lacking in the crazy ass psycho department that her mother so nicely managed during her debut in The Forest of Hands and Teeth.This story is about self discovery With Zombies.Which actually makes a lot of sense.In what I can only assume is stupidity gone rampant amongst teens, Gabry is convinced to go out past their safe border and into a closed and derelict theme park.It isn t a spoiler when I tell you that things quickly turn to shit because, really, you can do the maths.A group of stupid teens possible zombie infested theme park things quickly turning to shit.Very simple maths and the authors of the horror genre have taken such delight in viciously murdering poorly behaving teenagers that this is nothing new.After this incident, Gabry s life falls apart piece by piece until the only thing that can fix it is a zombie adventure I pity anyone caught in a zombie uprising with me I consider that sign fair warning that if there are zombies around, I am not above using your soft, gooey flesh to slow them down and aid my escape Which was rather disappointing because, in the first novel, people seemed to share this philosophy.Yet this group of zombie victims are unfortunately kind, brave and willing to face a zombie horde to protect those that they love It s annoying It makes for a surprisingly goreless zombie novel.Not ONCE does a zombie baby get tossed out a third story window.What are you doing to us Ryan How am I supposed to ENJOY a novel when I m pitying the damn antagonist and its mindless horde Well, actually, I still managed to really enjoy this novel but stillMore brains, Ryan Four or five FOUR OR FIVE FOUR OR FIVE Let s see how I m feeling by the end of the review Okay, this book kinda takes place where the last one left off Give or take twenty to thirty years Instead of the lovely Mary, the narrator this time is Mary s daughter, Gabry Now, I understand most of you are like OMG, who s the father I know I was But I can t say for threat of being flagged as a spoiler Anyway, Gabry has a very different upbringing from her mother She lives in a lighthouse on the outskirts of a little town called Vista She has a best friend and a crush on her best friend s brother But most of all, she grows up safe and secure, without all that moaning in the background But then, of course, it all goes wrongdun dun DUN Gabry and her friends take a little midnight hike over the Barrier and zombie hell breaks loose The night ends with death, betrayals, and with half of her generation gone or imprisoned, life will never be the same for poor, sweet Gabry I have to say, this was a hell of a sequel I thought it was actually much better than The Forest of Hands and Teeth aaaaaand all my questions were answered well, about 88% There were even some guest appearances and moments when I felt smarter than the narrator because I knew what something was and she didn t Whatcan I gall ask for The writing was very much the same It was beautiful in places, mostly sad, but hope shined through I managed to read this in a period of 24 hours, which is no small feat when you have school and homework and yada yada yada My point is that it s compelling and unputdownable which is officially a word The world that Ryan sets up is just incredible, honestly I find it completely convincing It s mysterious and dark and scary Just normal life with fewer good parts.and it has zombies I found Gabrylikable than her predecessor, but I don t feel fair comparing the two because they have totally different personalities Once again, the weakest part for me was the love triangle I m sick of those things I always choose the wrong guy, then have a grudge against the author for having different taste in men But this time I think I routing for the right guy..I think I have to wait and see if he dies first Even though Gabry bounced back and forth between the two contestants, she never seemed ho ish Just confused But once again I could never tell if the couple was kissing Does that make me weird, or does anyone else have that problem with these books I don t know, there would be pages of getting close and comfy with one of her man friends then they would get pissed or something, storm off, and Gabry would try to relive their almost kiss And I would be like Man, I though for SURE they were lipsmacking that time Overall, I really liked this book And if you want this book to be a stand alone, go ahead This book could do well without it s predecessor, although it s cliffhanger ending may be too much for someone with poor will power aka me I recommend this book to everyone, except those who like fairy tale endings, perfect narrators, or can t handle flesh eating corpses I ve decided to go with five stars. I m torn with the rating I gave this book It deservesthan three stars but I wouldn t say I really liked it So, even though I like this bookthan I like it s companion, The Forest of Hands and Teeth, I gave it the same amount of stars Quick review In The Forest of Hands and Teeth we were introduced to Mary, a not entirely likable teenage girl living in a remote village reminiscent of the village in M Night Shyamalan s The Village Mary s village is fenced off from the surrounding forest which is full of zombies referred to as the unconsecrated Mary desires,than anything, to venture outside the fenced in village to find her way to the ocean, even though she s been told her whole life the ocean no longer exists At the end of The Forest of Hands and Teeth Mary receives her heart s desire she sees the ocean, and that is where her story ends The Dead Tossed Waves is told by Mary s teenage daughter, Gabry This is Gabry s story Gabry Gabrielle is quite unlike her mother Raised in Vista, the seaside city Mary discovered at the end of The Forest of Hands and Teeth, she has no desire to venture outside the city walls where the Mudo unconsecrateddwell In the first chapter Gabry is invited by her best friend s cute older brother, Catcher, to sneak past the barriers to the abandoned amusement park, which, while still technically fenced in, is forbidden since those fences are no longer maintained or guarded It is only the lure of Catcher, his flirtatious promise to protect her, that finally gets Gabry to do what she fears most leave the relative safety of Vista.It is in the amusement park, as Gabry receives her first kiss, that things go horribly wrong who d have guessed I kid, I kid A Breaker an ber mudo, if you will attacks the group Gabry is with Long story short their little adventure outside the city walls does not end well.Because of the commotion caused by the attack they know it is only a matter of time before the city militia arrives So Catcher insists Gabry flee the scene because those caught outside the city walls will be punished severely Before she leaves, Gabry tries to round up Cira, Catcher s sister, to go back with her, but is unsuccessful.Gabry returns to the city by herself, a decision with which struggles throughout the rest of this novel She s riddled with guilt that she was unable to stop everyone from going to the amusement park in the first place Gabry hates that, unlike Cira and the rest of her friends, she wasn t caught.Because she s the only one who wasn t caught she s obligated to search for Catcher, at Cira s request The only problem is, Catcher may have been bitten by a mudo What s worse, he s hiding somewhere outside the city walls So Gabry ventures outside the walls once again, attacked bymudo, and saved by a young man, named Elias, who is clearly not from her village And this is when the adventure really begins Overall, this is a pretty good book I think it s much better than The Forest of Hands and Teeth, mainly because I don t mind the protagonist she s not selfish like her mother was at her age Also I think The Dead Tossed Waves is written better than The Forest of Hands and Teeth Before I go on, I need to mention that I m not a fan of the love triangle in this book It s not that I don t luuuurve me a good love triangle, because I do It s just the fact that Carrie Ryan already did the whole love triangle thing, and not very well might I add IMHO, Mary was undeserving of such attention so the love triangle in The Forest of Hands and Teeth felt forced And in the end it turns out the triangle was completely unnecessary I feel Carrie Ryan should have gone a different direction this time around not everybody has two equally good looking guys vying for their attention I feel Carrie Ryan, along with a lot of authors these days, are relying on the love triangle a little too much I think Carrie Ryan cheated herself, her story, and the readers, by focusing too much attention on the love story.Example Gabry spends too much time being torn up over the whole Catcher or Elias question Especially when, as far as I m concerned, her preference is obvious I wish Gabry had made a decision early on, sparing everyone involved including the readers , and spenttime thinking aboutimportant things Such as the many interesting ethical questions raised by various characters in this book What is the difference between existing and surviving Is there a difference How are the infected mudo unconsecrated different from the non infected When a body Returns, is part of their former self their soul still there, just trapped inside There are other things I didn t necessarily like but I can t bring them up without giving away too much Basically, what I m trying to say is, while I do quite like this book and I m planning to read the next one I m left feeling a little disappointed Carrie Ryan could have done so muchwith this storyline, the deeper elements are present but not explored Which is why I couldn t give this book four stars I do want to give Carrie Ryan props for writing zombie books targeted specifically at females If it weren t for her I wouldn t have picked up a zombie book, ever Which, in retrospect, would have been quite unfortunate as it is a genre I quite enjoy Side note Also, I think Carrie Ryan could have should have released The Dead Tossed Waves first and eventually released The Forest of Hands and Teeth as a prequel Why Because The Forest of Hands and Teeth does not actually add to this story, seeing as Gabry spends the majority of this novel mostly ignorant of her mother s past Sure, we the readers are able to make the connections, but that just takes away from the reading experience we already know what Gabry doesn t It s sort of infuriating Plus, the way in which this book ends I m assuming the next book, The Dark and Hollow Places, will start where this one leaves off Gabry still telling her story Which is just another reason why it doesn t make sense that The Forest of Hands and Teeth was released first. I wasn t a fan of The Forest of Hands and Teeth, but I wanted to give the author a second chance Like the previous book, the writing is choppy, monotonous, and repetitive The same thoughts and sentences are strewn throughout the pages The author uses silly similes, instead of actually describing things I grew weary of hearing how everything was like something else Evenannoying was the constant use of almost and of as if almost running, almost touching, almost clawing, almost raw Why can t the author just write a convincing description, instead of relying on cliche imagery The story line isn t very original either, it mirrors The Forest of Hands and Teeth in many ways an indecisive, helpless girl mooning over two boys, a journey down the fenced paths, the inevitable loss of companions, and an infuriatingly selfish act at the end I had hoped this book would fill in the gaps from the previous book, but it didn t.Mediocre writing aside, I can t abide weak, mopey characters who don t think, who don t consider how their actions affect others, and who only care about their own feelings Gabry, and Mary before her, are just that vapid, cow eyed, and selfish view spoiler At the end Gabry uses Catcher to escape, knowing he will protect her despite her declaration of love to another, because he adores her hide spoiler Dead Tossed Waves is a great example where the sequel outshines the first installment by far I had no intention of reading this book as The Forrest of Hands and Teeth was a disappointment for me at least But after reading continuous rave reviews and trusting my fellow avid readers that this book was a hit, I gave it a try and it was well worth it IMHO I really enjoyed this story so muchthan the first book, as I feel Carrie Ryan truly displayed growth in her writing abilities, as evidence by the captivating plot she devised, the flawed yet appealing characters she developed, and the intriguing setting she used as a backdrop It all blended very well and kept me riveted the entire time.I liked all of the characters that made up this adventure including Gabry, Catcher, Cira, and Elias, who I felt were strong, complex players in this story that kept the action going at a steady pace It was interesting to learn about the Soulers and the additional back story of the Return The action was continuous, but I never felt it was too drawn out Overall, this book delivered in areas I felt The Forrest of Hands and Teeth didn t.I m removing one star for some insignificant details that really didn t distract me too much, but I wish could have either been eliminated, downplayed or explained One, I would have liked to see Gabry not go back and forth so much between her feelings for Catcher and Elias, but considering the gamut of emotions and struggle for survival, I guess I can understand the confusion that naturally set in I m still curious as to what caused the virus and where it started We did receiveback story, but I still have some questions My other question is why did Catcher get bit in the first place if the Mudos didn t sense his presence since he was immune to the virus That confused me a bit, but not enough to detract from what was happening in the book.Other than that, though, it was a great story I definitely won t hesitate to read other books by this author in the future. OK, I m done with this DONE I m having a REAL hard time justifying even attempting to finish this Why Let me count the ways There will be spoilers Click them at your own risk 1 Gabry For real, she s annoying as hell She s cowardly and weak and useless and annoying, has a chip on her shoulder the size of an undead zombie horde, feels betrayed by everyone and everything ever and just generally pisses me off At this point, she could do this amazing 180 turnaround and achieve RE Alice like badassery levels and I would still want to punch her in the face 2 Gabry She s mother effing stupid view spoiler So, her barely barely barely insinuated that he might like her asthan a friend and rubbed lips together one effing time boyfriend gets infected So this girl, who has been RAISED in a world infested by zombies, taught that they are brain eating monsters and that they should be killed on sight if the one doing the seeing doesn t wanna get ate, this girl who saw one friend get attacked and had the thought She s already dead , then proceeds to hold out hope that boyfriend ll be fine, and then risks herself TWICE in the half of the book that I read to go see him and cuddle with his almost zombie self, and will do anything to save him But then, when she finds that there are people revere zombies as part of their Resurrection Religion, and fears that they might take her cherished zombie boyfriend in as an object of worship, or worse a renegade worshiper who is a boy, and therefore the 3rd in this love triangle of What the fuck might kill him, OH SNAP Not cool Because he s DIFFERENT LOVE will win out and he won t become a mindless zombie and try to eat her face when she tries to kiss him Oh no, not CATCHER, the love of her life Fuck For real There is a Stupid girl Boy Almost Zombie love triangle And it s not even FUNNY If it was funny, I wouldn t be spewing ragehate all over this book right now But it s not funny It s stupid And irritating and annoying and all the other ings you can supply that insinuate I don t like this hide spoiler .DOWNLOAD KINDLE ♙ The Dead-Tossed Waves ⚖ Gabry Lives A Quiet Life As Safe A Life As Is Possible In A Town Trapped Between A Forest And The Ocean, In A World Teeming With The Dead, Who Constantly Hunger For Those Still Living She S Content On Her Side Of The Barrier, Happy To Let Her Friends Dream Of The Dark City Up The Coast While She Watches From The Top Of Her Lighthouse But There Are Threats The Barrier Cannot Hold Back Threats Like The Secrets Gabry S Mother Thought She Left Behind When She Escaped From The Sisterhood And The Forest Of Hands And Teeth Like The Cult Of Religious Zealots Who Worship The Dead Like The Stranger From The Forest Who Seems To Know Gabry And Suddenly, Everything Is Changing One Reckless Moment, And Half Of Gabry S Generation Is Dead, The Other Half Imprisoned Now Gabry Only Knows One Thing She Must Face The Forest Of Her Mother S Past In Order To Save Herself And The One She Loves I had some real issues with The Forest of Hands and Teeth mostly revolving around my extreme dislike of the main character Usually disliking a main character is a deal breaker for me and it is lucky for me to even finish the book let alone read a sequel Luckily, the world building in The Forest of Hands and Teeth was amazing I wanted to learnabout how civilization came to such a state, what was going on with the secretive sisterhood and everything else I could about the world Carrie Ryan created I was hooked by the world and not the characters.Dead Tossed Waves is about Mary s daughter, Gabry I found her to be muchlikable than Mary, though not necessarily a lovable character She came across as whiny at times and I would be sorely tempted to reach through my book and slap her if it was only possible There is muchinformation about the zombies aka Mudo as well as the fate of Mary s home village, Gabry s history and the sisterhood I am evenintrigued by this world I will be eagerly awaiting the next book in this series. Wow You never think that a sequel will equal its predecessor, but Carrie Ryan has managed to do itand I even liked it better The Forest of Hands and Teeth blew me away with its creative setting and premise and with its strong female lead, but when I got hold of The Dead Tossed Waves I could NOT put it down Told from the point of view of Mary s daughter, Gabry, its about a girl who is forced to step outside of her safe world and learn what courage is In contrast to her mother, Mary, Gabry is timid and cautious about the world around her Watching her grow, develop, and rise to the challenges that she met with throughout her story was amazing And the love triangle with her initial first love, Catcher, and her mysterious rescuer gosh, I just love a good rescue , Elias, was beautifully written Great example of how to write a love triangle without making your reader hate someoneI can honestly say I love both Catcher AND Elias althoughI m rooting for Elias I can t lie Absolutely cannot wait for book three ANDhaving met Ms Carrie Ryan in person, I can honestly say that she is as cool as her books.
