    I was really excited to read this book as it seemed like a very interesting storyline. Once I got into the book, however, I found it very difficult to follow. The sentence structure was very long winded and I had trouble keeping up with it. It did not capture my attention the way I thought it would and was a bit disappointed. I would recommend this book for those in the medical field.

    Too many life stories.

    Difficult to get into. The constantly changing narrative was frustrating at time as I wanted to hear the end of a story but was forced to hear the entire story of different side characters that became more and more steeped in folk lore than fact. But, maybe that was the point. Maybe I didn't fully understand it.

    Beautiful and magical

    Beautifully written book about the relationship between a girl and her grandfather. I enjoyed the story-telling and felt that this was more of a collection of mystical short stories rather than a novel. But I enjoyed it nonetheless. Don't expect logical explanations for events that happen in this book. Just embrace the magic and the beauty that the author so expertly creates and communicates.

    The Tiger’s Wife

    One epic read! A tale of ongoing war, with incredible in-depth character development. Stories within stories of superstition and mystery. Loved it!

    Very enjoyable read

    4.5 stars I really enjoyed Miss Obreht's first book. A young woman in an unnamed Balkan country, learning of the unexpected death of her grandfather, remembers him and the stories he shared with her. It's very well written and has elements of magical realism. There's a scene early in the book with a circus elephant, not much happens really, but I think it's so beautifully written it brings tears to my eyes every time.
