The Forest of Hands and Teeth Trailer

Dude, I gotta share the shiny!!

My friend, Carrie Ryan, has written an incredible book that I think I've mentioned here before; The Forest of Hands and Teeth. It's a literary, dystopian future zombie novel. And seriously, don't let the Z word throw you off. This is an incredibly written, emotional book with so much more depth than your typical zombie novel. Well a few months ago her book was selected to be included in a contest of students making book trailers. And I was SO impressed by the result. This thing looks seriously professional. So I wanted to share!





The Forest of Hands and Teeth comes out in March of 2009. (We're almost there!!)

Ciao!

Whoa! That's fantastic.

I think this book trailer idea is something the publishing industry should take more seriously. Because, really, watching that made me totally want to buy the book.

WOW - that is incredible. Even the voice of the girl reading was well done. And the creepy bit at the end - again, WOW.

I agree with you Renee - book trailers are genius.

Very well done. I went to film school with those folks, actually, and I'm a YA author myself, so it's very WORLDS-COLLIDE-y to see.

Do you guys think the book trailer thing will help, with younger (potential) readers specifically?

I've read this book, and man, this trailer really cuts deep into the heart of it. It's perfect!

This sounds like a great book. I can't wait to read it.

I agree that a book trailer is a great idea. I think there is a lot that authors can do to take advantage of the Internet when it comes to marketing. It opens up opportunities for new authors as well.

Wow! That was brilliant! It scared me. I agree that the narrator was amazing. I can't wait to read it:)

I love the reoccuring themes of delicate, gothic barriers--thickets blending into the fence, the lattice on the windows strangely resembling the shadows on faces and the falling branches. Can't wait for the book.

Holy crap. I can't wait!

I've linked it over on Abandoned Towers.

We'd be happy to review the books when they come out as well.

Wow, that movie trailer looks amazing. I have not read the book, but it seems like the book is empowering the context of the film well. I wish your friend the very best. Will this film be coming out universally? Or just in your area?

River said...

Wow. That book sounds really good! I can't wait to sink my claws into it!
