The Tiger’s Wife by Tea Obreht – Mini Review

The Tiger’s Wife by Tea Obreht
Published by Random House

In The Tigers Wife, Tea Obreht’s gorgeous novel set in a war-ravaged Eastern European country, life, death, and myth coincide. Although Natalia, a young doctor who has recently lost her grandfather, is the central character, Obreht’s narrative also follows Natalia’s grandfather’s periodic encounters with a deathless man, as well as the titular story of the tiger’s wife.

Tea Obreht’s debut novel is beautiful beyond belief. The writing is simply gorgeous, and the plotting impeccable. Obreht weaves a remarkable tale that defies easy description. In fact, I think it is better if I do not try to go into too much detail, as The Tiger’s Wife is so absolutely beautiful that I cannot do it justice.

This is one of those times where I must simply say, trust me, read it.

  • Hey that is short and sweet – nice job! I get very confused lately with all the Tiger titles out there. In fact I think there are a good half dozen newer ones so what are the odds I’m going to remember the right one? I will trust you on this one, and can understand maybe why you did the mini approach. I like it.

  • This one seems to be getting a lot of good reviews lately, so it keeps getting pushed up higher and higher on my wish list.

  • You’ve convinced me that I need to get my hands on this book!

  • I am getting more excited about this book now! There’s been a lot of good reviews!
