A battle of wills between mother and daughter reveals the frailty and falsehood of familial bonds in award-winning playwright and filmmaker Zoje Stage's tense audiobook of psychological suspense, Baby Teeth.
Afflicted with a chronic debilitating condition, Suzette Jensen knew having children would wreak havoc on her already fragile body. Nevertheless, she brought Hanna into the world, pleased and proud to start a family with her husband Alex. Estranged from her own mother, Suzette is determined to raise her beautiful daughter with the love, care, and support she was denied.
But Hanna proves to be a difficult child. Now seven-years-old, she has yet to utter a word, despite being able to read and write. Defiant and anti-social, she refuses to behave in kindergarten classes, forcing Suzette to homeschool her. Resentful of her mother's rules and attentions, Hanna lashes out in anger, becoming more aggressive every day. The only time Hanna is truly happy is when she's with her father. To Alex, she's willful and precocious but otherwise the perfect little girl, doing what she's told.
Suzette knows her clever and manipulative daughter doesn't love her. She can see the hatred and jealousy in her eyes. And as Hanna's subtle acts of cruelty threaten to tear her and Alex apart, Suzette fears her very life may be in grave danger...
Praise for Baby Teeth:
"We Need to Talk About Kevin meets Gone Girl meets The Omen....a twisty, delirious read that will constantly question your sympathies for the two characters as their bond continues to crumble." ??Entertainment Weekly

    Elizabeth av Ken Greenhall (sturlington)
    sturlington: I would recommend reading Elizabeth instead of Baby Teeth. Similar themes, although the child is older.

    My Sister Rosa av Justine Larbalestier (Anonym användare)
    Anonym användare: Very similar but with different twists and different perspective.

This book feels like it wants to be disturbing but it also doesn't understand what truly makes a book disturbing. Simply throwing words and phrases on to pages doesn't make it creepy. The baby deciding to be a weirdo and watching the parents have sex for example is it weird the baby wants the mother to die from sex which doesn't make sense because how would they know it happens so often but yet expect death from it?

There's a lot of scenes that are just supposed to be like gross out horror but it's not working because there author does not understand horror is a slow build and also a collection of emotions being provoked. For example the child will chew food up and gross combinations and spit it onto her mother's face but that's not gross because the child's been doing stuff like that this entire time. It's not a new thing or surprising it's just gross but we're supposed to feel something about it. Besides annoyed at this child.

The child also has weird comprehensions beyond their capabilities but also is a child and toxic child understands things like a child but other times will know enough that they want their mother to die. Inconsistently the series of pages that I read made me exhausted and rolling my eyes.

It feels like it wanted to be splatterpunk gore but it didn't really hit the mark, it didn't really hit any mark actually. It's just a weird attempt at being controversial but everybody reading it can tell that it's tryharding. It's not even enjoyable in a way that it makes you laugh it just makes you annoyed, cringe, or just tired. Reading it made me so tired that I kept falling asleep because some scenarios are just impossible to imagine with the child doing this or that or even attempting to kill the parent because why would a child understand such complicated things yet talk like a little baby? And when the toddler talks more adult it's in weird clunky sentences.

I don't care about the characters, I don't care about the risks, I don't care about anything going on in this book, I don't even care if somebody new comes in, I just expect them all to go the same way one way or another. Something something the child torments them. It's so quirky and unique it's not like the other girls. Ugh.

1 star and I'm not the only one rolling my eyes at this book. ( )

Oh man, this is seriously a page turner. Like if you can read it one day/sitting please do so. So glad I got to read an ARC of this book. It was so creepy yet I could not put it down. Would love a sequel!! ( )

Read by Gaba Zachman???

This book was wild.
It’s so interesting the way it was presented. You know what’s going on with everyone very early on, but then how they navigate such an awful situation is where the bulk of the story is.
I sat here with my mouth agape a lot at what this girl dreamed up to do to her mom and I was so in love with that doctor!!! ( )
