Review #110 // River of Teeth (River of Teeth #1) – Sarah Gailey

River of Teeth (River of Teeth #1)

When the US government decided to ship in hippos as an alternatives meat source, they didn’t expect for them to start running feral through the Mississippi River. Winslow Houndstooth is hired to herd the feral hippos out of the Mississippi, but the team they agreed to use seems to be more trouble than they are worth.

Why this book?: There was a sale for the ebook, and I’d heard interesting things about it! Also, feral hippos sounded badass.

The Great Gatsby: A Rant™ by an Indignant High Schooler

While this is a review, I decided to do this one differently. So sit back, and relax as I tear this book to pieces.

Full story: Being in American Literature (my school’s version of Advanced Lit for Juniors), we have to read four novels during the year. Into the Wild was the first, Their Eyes Were Watching Godand then The Great Gatsby. The one we read next is The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

We are required to read these books, and write a in-depth essay on them. This isn’t my essay, but here’s my true feelings on the book as a whole, along with quoted evidence and reasons for my utter hatred for this “American Classic”.
