About book Tiger Moon (2006)

This book was beautiful, and sucked me in fairly quickly. To be honest, I wasn't sure about it when I started reading. I picked it up at the library on a whim (and because of a slight obsession with India) and I am so very glad I did. It tells the story of Safia and Lalit, both trapped in the own way, and Farhad, an unlikely and unwilling hero, accompanied by Nitish, the sacred white tiger who knows little of the world. Other characters are sprinkled in with a wonderful ease that makes the story that much more engrossing. A lot of people are making a big deal over one of the final scenes, where Safia has given in and gone to her husband. I think a big deal wasn't made over it by the characters because we know all along that her husband is going to sleep with her. And in the time and culture that the book takes place, it's a common thing, for a man to wed a woman and consummate it whether she wants to or not. In most countries, even now, spouses can't bring charges of rape against their husband or wife. Not saying it's right, just saying that it happened. I expected to enjoy this book a lot more than I did. I think it's because I'm still riding on those disappointed hopes that I give Tiger Moon four stars.The idea! The setting! India! Beautiful, exotic, culturally rich, glorious India. It's not often that I see books set in the country. When I noticed this, I wanted to read it right away. I wanted to devour it and be left breathless with the scent of marigolds, incense, and naan, and the sound of the Ganges and colors of the vibrant saris.But I was not. And so I was disappointed.

Got bored and thought about quitting but halfway through it got much better and I loved it!

A painful tragedy, that's all I'll say.

Yes. Very nice.
