lefaquin’s #CBR5 Review #1: The Tiger’s Wife by Téa Obreht

Even though I’m off to a slow-ish start for this year’s CBR, I absolutely loved my first read. I received The Tiger’s Wife over a year ago as a Christmas present, and brought it with me when I moved, so I might be more motivated to read it. Not even all the way through the first chapter, I was already in love with the book. The story follows Natalia, a young doctor in the present day Balkans, as she goes to a tiny village to administer vaccines. Although I don’t know much about the wars in the former Yugoslavia, the novel is saturated with the imagery of war and its aftereffects. I can’t really recommend this book enough, and I’m struggling for the right words to describe how much I loved this story, but check out the rest of my review on my blog!
