Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

The Tiger's Wife - Téa Obreht

Lately, I feel as if I'm behind on everything. This was my book club's January pick and discussion, which we already had, and only now am I getting around to writing the review on here. *sigh*

 

Anyways, this book was thoroughly enjoyable. No words were minced and the author expects the reader to make the connections, which I absolutely loved. It was a fast read, once I got into the rhythm of the story. Also, a nice blending of reality and mythological fiction. Sometimes it was hard to differentiate the two, but this also made the book great. I was surprised that this is the author's first book, but what a debut. I'm totally excited to see what Tea Obreht will come up with next. 

 

P.S. My parents had the opportunity to visit a few Balkan countries a few years ago in their travels, so I'm going to be sending this book their way, in hopes that they will enjoy it too, and maybe even recognize some of the locations, that I used my imagination on.
