Tigers In Red Weather

June 17, 2013 • Reading

it had been a while since i really lost myself in a book, waiting for the day to end so i could crawl up in bed with a few dozen more pages in front of me. i put tigers in red weather by liza klaussmann on my reading list a while ago, when a reader asked me for summer reading tips, i realized i had nothing left lying around and i started researching recent literature. but i had no idea i would love it this much.

what can i tell you without giving too much away? it’s one story that is told from different perspectives again and again. normally i hate this technique, and my annoyance with this style is enough to make me put down a book forever. but this one, oh boy. every new chapter told from another point of view is light a fine layer of truth and realization laid over the previous one. other books, take note. this is how it’s done.

as for the story – imagine desperate housewives but set in the 50s and 60s, and a lot darker and more twisted. it’s a beautiful look at relationships and marriage, an intriguing exposé of the human psychology, a sad love story and a creepy murder mystery – ALL ROLLED INTO ONE.

i never use caps in here, so you know how excited i am about this book. go out and buy it, you won’t regret it.
