I suspect that The Tiger's Wife is a Great Book. I say "suspect" because despite the deft writing and skilled unfolding of the layered stories, I wasn't drawn in. I'm pretty sure it's not the book, it's me. My attention span isn't what it could be right now. Or TW might not be a Good book.
The story is about a young doctor, her dead grandfather, war and its aftermath, and maybe a tiger. Please someone else give it a try and tell me what you think.
