The Tiger's Wife
Reviewed by- Andrea (2011/06/20, 05:58 PM)
THE TIGER'S WIFE by Tea Obreht is a beautifully crafted novel. As the youngest winner of the 2011 Orange award which honors new female authors showing great potential, Obreht at age 25 delivers an excellent story. It begins in the 1990’s as the ravages of war tear at a Balkan country. Natalia, a young doctor, is the narrator of the story, she is in route to a missionary to administer vaccines to an area orphanage. As the story progresses, Natalia tries to figure out the story of her grandfathers mysterious death. Three different threads are used to tell this skillfully written and very descriptive story. It has many references to folklores and myths and can at times become very grim. This novel is a very interesting read and one you will contemplate long after you’ve finished.Back.
