2 Stars - The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht
Not my favorite book we've ever read for book club, but I made it through the book. I didn't mind the writing style but the plot was a little plodding for me. I felt like it took forever for anything to really happen. And really as soon as I finished the book I'd forgotten it.
Since it was set in the Balkan region I decided to try that out for our menu for the evening. Even if the book isn't great doesn't mean we can't eat well!! Enjoy the eats!
Amazon: In a Balkan country mending from war, Natalia, a young doctor, is compelled to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding her beloved grandfather’s recent death. Searching for clues, she turns to his worn copy of The Jungle Book and the stories he told her of his encounters over the years with “the deathless man.” But most extraordinary of all is the story her grandfather never told her—the legend of the tiger’s wife.
