When I heard Liberty Hardy from BookRiot talking about this book I immediately added it to my wish list.
The year is 1890 and there are feral hippos in the Mississippi River. In this alt history, Gainey explores what might have been if the US followed through on their plan of bringing hippos to the country as a food source. Needless to say, there are cowboys riding hippos and that was enough to sell me this book.
River of Teeth is 166 pages long and took me 1 day to read.
I’m giving this story a 4 out of 5. I REALLY REALLY LOVED THIS STORY. It’s so much fun to read and you don’t want it to be over when you hit the last page. LUCKILY, it’s a series!
Here’s to the adventure of finding a novel novel!
