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.

    Bumped into it in the library this morning and it reminded me from this post. I’ve already read the first few pages…
