Book Review: TEETH an Epic True-to-Life Monster Tale
TEETH The Epic Novel with Bite by Timothy James Dean
Purchase at this link, Paperback or Kindle
When you pick up this book, be sure your bags are packed and there's plenty of gas in the car because you're going to be taken for a wild ride!
Author Timothy Dean weaves us an epic tale that defies strict category guidelines and will entertain and delight readers of all genres. Part true-to-life monster tale and part historical tome, this novel taught me as much as it thrilled.
I recommend it wholly to World War II history buffs, Wartime Paramedic, Nursing and medical buffs, Jungle Culture/Indigenous Peoples buffs, Japanese, Australians, Americans and New Guineans... and let's not forget the people who like to read monster tales such as Jurassic Park and Jaws. The Father is the it-could-really-happen giant crocodile in this story who is always hungry!
A curious and fully satisfying aspect of this story is that Timothy not only allows us access to the point of view of the various main characters, but he lets us into the head of the Father. From the croc's birth and as he shows up as an adult in various scenes, we often get to know what he is feeling, what he experiences, and what his reptilian brain thinks of these humans who are so dangerous yet so fragile at the same time. I've never been inside a croc/monster's head until now, and Timothy has me totally convinced that he has channeled this mythical beast!
A great time, an adventure from your reading chair--you cannot be disappointed.
