Sharp Teeth - Toby Barlow Werewolves in free verse with carne asada tacos.

Now that I got my one-liner out of the way, Sharp Teeth is an original horror tale that never lets the reader off. I read it in two sittings, interrupted only by the fact that my wife and I had tickets for a jazz concert and she wouldn't let me stay home and read the book! The use of free verse was a bit daunting to me at first but after a few pages I got into the rhythm and stayed entranced. The book sometimes reads more like an organized crime novel than a horror tale. Perhaps Barlow's real accomplishment is the successful intertwining of both genres. An outstanding debut effort.
