By chance I say this book on a display at the door of B&N. I picked it up and read some of the quotes strewn about the cover and it sounded pretty interesting. Once I began reading I couldn't get away. You follow several people's stories concerning certain events that lead to a huge climax. Lot's of action, anticipation, elements of mystery, and stories of love all keep you tied in. Don't get me wrong, this is a story about werewolves. He brings lots of different things into a story told in a very modern way, which was an outstanding first book. I hope for and expect more.

Good, but not great.

On an excursion to BookPeople one day, my friend randomly picked this book out for me to read over the Christmas holidays. I was skeptical at first -- it's about werewolves, and I'm more of a vampire/witch/ghost kind of girl -- but I agreed to give it a chance. To my surprise, I was quickly sucked in by all of the different plot lines that eventually came together to solve the story's overlying mystery. I also really liked getting to know the well-devoloped characters, specifically Lark, Anthony, and the main she-wolf (who is never named). However, I wasn't a big fan of the free verse style that Toby Barlow used in the writing of Sharp Teeth. I usually like poetic writing styles, but in this particular novel, it distracted from the story and made some things somewhat difficult to understand. Nor did I enjoy the ending as much as I would have liked; I felt that it was rushed and anti-climactic, especially after the slow build of events that seemed to prepare the reader for an epic conclusion (which did not happen). Regardless, this is definitely not a bad book to read for fun. (Unless, of course, you can't stand anything with a bit of blood and gore. These werewolves are not vegetarians.)
