Teeth is not just an adventure - it is a love story
By J. P. Alexander - November 19, 2009
Teeth is full of so many exciting twists and turns. It will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. Get lost in one conflict after another: the Japanese and the Americans, American and Aussie Allies, a man and a woman, inner conflict of a boy soldier, a huge crocodile and a man, Christianity and cannibalism. You can have them all!
Mr. Dean's level of detail and knowledge of the culture, time and setting compare only to Michener in accuracy, and almost addicting enticement. He creates a breathtakingly real look at what WWII must have been like in the Pacific arena. Fact is married with fiction in this startlingly, realistic chronicle of events. It is not for the faint at heart, but it is also for the tender hearted - a contradiction of the soul.
I truly can' t wait for the next volume to come out! I laughed, I cried, but most of all I just couldn't put this novel down! When is the movie coming out?

The "Bite" done right!
By Donnie Light "Author of "Dark Justice"... - July 11, 2010
I just finished the novel TEETH by Timothy James Dean and was absolutely overwhelmed by the scope of this story. "Epic" may be too small a word to describe the adventure of a small party of military personnel sent on a rescue mission to the island's interior during World War 2. Things go terribly wrong as the mission gets underway, and the small team find themselves stranded among hostile enemy forces. Their initial escape only leads them to even more formidable foes, which include the island's cannibal and headhunter tribes. But most intimidating of all, is "The Father," a saltwater crocodile of immense size. The team encounters the Father many times as they follow the great river to the coast, where they hope to be rescued. The author does an absolutely incredible job with every aspect of this book. The characters are so realistic that you will miss them when the story ends! His first-hand knowledge of the island and its inhabitants lend a level of realism rarely achieved... read more
Pack your bags & gas up the car--you're going for a wild ride!
By Ellen C. Maze "The Author's Mentor" - June 8, 2010
When you pick up this book, be sure your bags are packed and there's plenty of gas in the car because you're going to be taken for a wild ride!
Author Timothy Dean weaves us an epic tale that defies strict category guidelines and will entertain and delight readers of all genres. Part true-to-life monster tale and part historical tome, this novel taught me as much as it thrilled.
I recommend it wholly to World War II history buffs, Wartime Paramedic, Nursing and medical buffs, Jungle Culture/Indigenous Peoples buffs, Japanese, Australians, Americans and New Guineans... and let's not forget the people who like to read monster tales such as Jurassic Park and Jaws. The Father is the it-could-really-happen giant crocodile in this story who is always hungry!
A curious and fully satisfying aspect of this story is that Timothy not only allows us access to the point of view of the various main characters, but he lets us into the head of the Father. From the... read more
