Format: Paperback
Teeth is an anthology of nineteen stories of varying lengths, all about vampires. As this is an anthology, it will be reviewed story by story, with the title, author, thoughts and strength tea in numbers. The tea strength for the entire book will be the average strength per story.
1. Things to Know About Being Dead by Genevieve Valentine is written as a list, interspersed with relevant stories, that link with both the list and each other. It's written from the perspective of a girl who died and came back, with nice characters and good flow. 4
2. All Smiles by Steve Berman. Saul goes hitchhiking and is picked up by a couple of vampires. It then turns into action, and Saul's realisation that everyone else knew about the vampires, just not him. I like the fast pace, even though at times it got a little confusing. 4
3. Gap Year by Christopher Barzak. Retta and Lottie have a nice little friendship. Then the vampires come to town and Retta and Lottie's friendship breaks up slowly. The character development in this is very good, but this really isn't my type of vampire book. 2
5. Bloody Sunrise by Neil Gaiman. It's a short poem written from the vampire's point of view, about how it rises, goes along life and is bound by a bloody sunrise. It's a pretty little poem, though it doesn't seem to make a point.
5. Flying by Delia Sherman. Lenka is getting over leukaemia, and wants to get back into circus work, like she did before. She then joins a circus of vampires. This is a very nice idea, with a fair amount of character development, but no real conclusion to it. 3
6. Vampire Weather by Garth Nix . In this world, Amos uses religion to protect him from the vampires. When bitten, he is offered a scientific cure, going against his religion.

By TeensReadToo TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 11 April 2011
Format: Paperback
This eerie collection features nineteen pieces by authors such as Neil Gaiman (THE GRAVEYARD BOOK), Melissa Marr (WICKED LOVELY series), Cassandra Clare (CLOCKWORK ANGEL) and Holly Black (THE CURSE WORKERS and GOOD NEIGHBORS series).

The first story in the anthology is "Things to Know About Being Dead" by Genevieve Valentine. After surviving a car accident, Suyin discovers that she's not quite alive and not quite dead. She has become a jiang-shi, and she must drink blood to experience any kind of life. In this darkly ironic story, Suyin details twenty-three things she learns about life once she's dead.

In "Sunbleached" by Nathan Ballingrud, Joshua finds out the hard way that vampires do exist and that taunting one that has been caught in the sun is not a good idea. Frustrated by his parents' divorce and his mother's new boyfriend, Joshua is looking for a change. But, the change he gets is not necessarily the one he wants.

Cassandra Clare and Holly Black collaborate on the story "The Perfect Dinner Party" to create one of the creepiest vampires in the collection. Their story follows six twisted rules of etiquette for the newly-formed vampire who wants to please his/her master. Readers who enjoy first-person narrators will find this tale an intriguing one!

If you're looking for paranormal romance, avoid this book. However, if you want to read stories that could keep you awake at night, this is a great choice! It is a truly enjoyable romp through the afterlife!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome - No Sappy Love 2 Jun. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm an adult, not a teen, but I love Ellen Datlow's anthologies - she picks kick-butt great stories. And Teeth is no different. Other reviewers have summarized the stories, so I will not, but I'll say that I was never bored, and while I "liked" a few stories I "loved" a few more - there is some great stuff in here. No love of Dracula or Twilight is needed, as in the tradition of great stories, these are about characters and the interesting things that happen to them. I'm just about finished, and I wish there were more left to read.

The stories felt real, unlike twilight and other cliches. It was nice to read something with a bit more bite.

Sorry for the pun... couldn't resist! A great collection of vampire stories ranging from creepy to funny. I was also impressed that I hadn't read any of them before which isn't always the case with collections of vampire short stories as I have an entire bookshelf worth. Definitely worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Vampire Anthology with a Bite 16 Nov. 2011
By Underwords - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The new anthology TEETH, edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling, includes a delectable assortment of bite sized vampire stories that should be tasted and savored. Yes, all of the stories are that good. One of the best things about TEETH is that the stories consistently establish strong, unique worlds filled with characters who are compelling and interesting. Plus, you're sure to find a few new vampiric details and treasures that are not part of the standard mythology in today's vampire literature.

While the stories differ in voice, tone, and style, they each offer something significant and unique for readers to enjoy. Tender friendships, lost potential, arranged marriages, fights for survival, and coming of age stories are just a few of the themes within this anthology. Some stories will stick with you well beyond "The End," especially the stories that should only be read in full daylight. While all of the stories are good reads, there are several stand outs. A few of those standouts include, but are not limited to:

Things to Know About Being Dead by Genevieve Valentine is a touching story about a newly undead girl who is learning the ropes of her new undead existence with the help of a ghost and her aging grandmother. This is one of two stories that are available online as a free preview.

All Smiles by Steve Berman is also available online as a free sample. After reading All Smiles, you will think twice about hitching a ride from someone with a perfect pearly white smile. This fight for survival story will have you cringing and running for the door.

Vampire Weather by Garth Nix brings an interesting spin on the world after vampires make themselves known. When the fog comes rolling into one of the remaining pockets of pure human societies, a young man learns the truth about vampires and the world that could either kill him, set him free, or both.

Sit the Dead by Jeffrey Ford is an inventive story with a new twist the blends old cursed bloodlines, modern day family responsibilities, and ultra creepy vampires. Long after the story is over, the ending will stick with you as you wonder whether or not the story ended "right," and you will inevitably keep coming back to the same conclusion. It couldn't have ended any other way. The real question is what happens next.

Sunbleached by Nathan Ballingrud brings the vampire back to bad. Dark and dangerous, the beautiful imagery used to compare the hideously burned vampire is reminiscent of a graceful caged spider ready to pounce.

The Perfect Dinner Party by Cassandra Clare & Holly Black is a superbly written story about a brother and sister pair of vampires who struggle to find how they fit into the world and with each other - all told against a backdrop that reads like a clever Miss Manners guide. It's rare to find such an exquisitely told story written in second person. It's a must read.

Why Light? by Tanith Lee is a lovely story about two young vampires from vastly different families who are forced into an arranged marriage. There is a strong sense of new and old world coming together in Why Light. This convergence of old and new, light and dark, evil and good plays with parallels inherent in both historical and contemporary vampire fiction in an interesting way.

All in all, Terri Windling and Ellen Datlow built a wonderful collection of stories that is a true pleasure to read. As sweet and tender as some of the stories are within TEETH, you may need to keep the light on for a few of the darker pieces. TEETH is an anthology that will keep you coming back for more, story after story until the last page is turned.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book For Teens 26 Nov. 2011
By Amanda Jade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The moment I opened the book I was pleasantly surprised by the spectacular introduction. I usually skip over anthology intros because, well, they're boring. But Ellen Datlow's intro in Teeth was full of info on vampire history and folklore, which filled me with all kinds of happy (major props for doing actual research). That happiness grew more and more as I continued reading through story after story.

The tales in this collection are excellent, I was expecting mindless teenage garbage, but the stories were remarkably well-written, highly innovative and captivating. I was surprised at how much thought each author put into their story, the majority of them were intelligent and full of meaning and purpose. The stories weren't meant to just entertain you, but to make you think as well. As an added bonus, many authors mixed actual vampire folklore into their stories, and since I'm a folklore junkie I absolutely loved it.

One of the things I found most impressive in this collection was that the author's stayed true to their audience - teenagers. Any teen who reads this book will be able to relate to at least one of the stories. That's what I thought was great. On top of being highly entertaining and thought-provoking reads, they also touch on big teens issues that speak to younger readers. Homosexuality, suicide, depression, parental issues... etc. were all brought up in this book. Teeth covered many teen issues today and put them in a awesome vampire setting. So this book gets loads of bonus points for that.

As for the stories themselves, I loved too many to list, but a few that stick out in my mind are Vampire Weather by Garth Nix and In The Future All's Well by Catherynne M. Valente. Nix's was a interesting story set in a world where vampires are known to exist. The story followed a naïve religious boy who gets a very rude awakening when he learns about the outside world he has been sheltered from. Valente's story put such a big smile on my face because she did something I have never read before - she took very old vampire creation beliefs, placed them in a modern setting and made them all true! Loved it! Hundreds of years ago people actually believed that an animal jumping over a corpse or death by drowning created a vampire (serioously) and in this story all of those old beliefs are true. It was excellent! Why Light? by Tanith Lee was another one I loved, it was a beautiful and enchanting tale.

Now, like all anthologies, some of the stories aren't all that great. None of them were straight up bad, but some weren't good either, they were just blah. That's to be expected. However, there was one story about halfway through the book that was so incredibly dark and morbid I wonder what the hell possessed the editor to include it. It was so out of place with the rest of the stories, I was shocked. Yes, it was very well written, but it would have been better for an adult horror anthology. Children being slaughtered doesn't really work in a young adult anthology.

Other than a few duds here and there, Teeth: Vampire Tales was fantastic. I highly suggest picking this one up and giving it a read, it may be directed at teens, but adults can enjoy it as well (I did).
