You must read this. It only takes about 45 minutes and leaves a lasting impression. The love and compassion mixed with horror and sacrifice is enticing. Excellent read, totally worth the $2.

It's an insightful book to the Forest of the Hands and Teeth. It gives more details about the first book but doesnt have any context for first time readers. If you liked the first book and want to learn more about the village's history then it is worth your two dollars.

This short addition to the Forest of Hands and Teeth series gives readers a glimpse into the background and psychology of Tabitha. Those of you who have read The Forest of Hands and Teeth will recognize Sister Tabitha as the strict, scary, maybe even a little crazy head of the Sisterhood that tries to stifle Mary’s love and curiosity. Hare Moon delves into the past, when Tabitha is a young, curious teenager herself. When she meets a boy on the path into the forest, she learns that what she once knew was not entirely true, and learns the meaning of sacrifice to those in her village. Being a short story, Hare Moon is indeed short and leaves the reader wanting a bit more. However, I think it stands as a valuable addition to the series. You can read it first if you haven’t read The Forest of Hands and Teeth, or you can read it after the entire series like I did. I would recommend it to those who were curious about why Sister Tabitha acted the way she did.

It gives a lot more information about Sister Tabitha and how she realted to Mary at her age. It leaves a long lasting memory not only of the shocking ending but of.............. not going to tell you because you will know when you read it.

let me just first say I loved her other novels. I read each one in one day. There are times where dialogue would have been nice but instead it was just lacking emotion. It was lacking everything. I understand that is how Tabitha was in the first book but I felt like this was just slapped together with no real intent on it.

Excellent return to the Forest of Hands and Teeth series: In "Hare Moon" Tabitha has only ever known the village she lives in but longs for more. One day she sneaks outside the main fence to the path beyond. Gradually, as days pass, she makes her way further down the path until one day she meets a boy. She'd thought her village was the only one left. Now she knows different, but her adventures could place everything she loves at risk. In the end she'll have to decide what's more important.  I feel like it's been so long since finishing the series. This was definitely a welcome - if brief - return.

Does this have anything to do with the zombies? I'm not a big fan of zombie books.

Hare Moon helps you understand why tabitha is the way she is in The Forest of Hand and Teeth. For only two dollars and 30 minutes of your time you get to experience the short love life between tabitha and patrick.

When i read the forest of hands and teeth i really didnt like tabitha at all. But now that ive read this i dont hate her so much any more. I honestly almost cried at the end but thats not saying to much considering the most ive ever cried was when i was reading a book. Hare moon fills in quite a few blanks for me and im really glad i read it.

"Hare Moon" is a short story which is a lovely little codicil to Carrie Ryan's trilogy of The Forest of Hands and Teeth. In it, we learn the fascinating back story of one of the very important characters in the first book. It seems to me that this story would best be read after reading at least the first two books in the trilogy. That's when I read it, and found it the perfect bridge into the last novel in the series. Honestly, I hope Ryan will continue to refine upon her world "after the Return" with pieces like this if not even more full sized novels. Highly recommended!
