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?

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 croc's birth and as he shows up as an adult in various scenes, we often get to know what he is feeling, what he experiences, and what his reptilian brain thinks of these humans who are so dangerous yet so fragile at the same time. I've never been inside a croc/monster's head until now, and Timothy has me totally convinced that he has channeled this mythical beast!

A great time, an adventure from your reading chair--you cannot be disappointed.

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 in a novel. His descriptions are cinematic, and the action is fast. His treatment of the primary foe, the "Father," is visceral and engaging, revealing in a very unique way the thoughts and motivations of the great beast in shocking detail.
This adventure tale reveals much about the honorable men involved, on all sides of this conflict. Perceived enemies can become allies when the common goal is survival. A love story also unfolds under the harsh reality of the world at war, and friendships are forged under the most demanding of circumstances.
My hat is off to Timothy James Dean, and I thank him here publicly for bringing this incredible story to the world. This book now ranks among my very favorites of all time, and I look forward to more from this gifted author.

TEETH is an unforgetably gripping adventure which is set in the South Pacific. The Main Character -Johnny -a 20-year-old American soldier on "Operation Teeth," a mission in New Guinea is one of the most finely drawn characters I have ever read. He is both very real and one you find yourself rooting for. "The Father" a 4,000lb man-eating crocodile is the most ferocious and terrifying creatures I have read since Jaws. Mr. Dean knows just how to grab the reader early in his book- making it all but impossible to put this soon to be classic down!!! I felt like I was truly a part of the story- not merely a reader- which VERY few books have been able to acheive.The supporting character of Footy, a very unique Aussie is a perfect companion to Johnny. DONT MISS THIS GEM!!!!

Take a hold of this great epic novel! Its a great book to sink your teeth into and not let go till the end and then wish for more. Dean takes the reader on a great adventure ride that starts at the end of World War II. There is a love story, cannibles, a prisoner of war and a 30-feet and 4,000 pounds of man-eating crocodile called Father by the natives that chases Johnny, a 20-year-old American soldier, with Johnny is Footy, an Aussie, and their Japanese prisoner, Katsu who has only one thing left - his family heirloom samurai sword. An epic tale with true history and fiction adventure that mingle very well. It will leave the reader with an appetite for more!
