I would really like to rate this book a high 3. I loved the folklore, the myths, the superstitions, the hints of magical realism, the character of the grandfather. It was a beautiful and original read.

This has no bearing on my rating, but I hate the title of this book. We've had The Time Traveler's Wife, The Zookeeper's Wife, The Paris Wife, The Good Wife, and the list goes on. The Tiger's Wife? Really?

Lisa one of the best books ive read in a while. I'm usually more plot driven, but the language in this book was gorgeous..
