    One thought on “A Tiger in Red Weather

    1. Emily Crow

      A pretty good mystery, with a detailed West African setting. The plot involves the murder of an American writer, whose body was found by a hunter in the desert. When local doctor Quarshie and his wife investigate, it turns out that she had ticked off just about everyone, including the local fetish man, with her abrasive personality. The writing was rather dry, though. Still, worth a read for mystery fans.Note: I glanced over the other reviews here, and most of them seem to have the wrong book. L [...]

      Didn't exactly enjoy it, but this book makes one think about the reality of damage our servicemen return with after deployment in Iraq or Afghanistan. The impossibility of upholding the ideals they were taught as boys in a situation when morals are tamped down below animal instincts to kill and survive is a powerful theme. Soldiers in this book are pummeled by violent actions as though rolled by a giant wave; then they sacrifice their own lives before an altar of nobility, literally.

      This book is really 3.5 stars. I really enjoyed so much of it. There are five chapters, each from a different character's perspective. The adult characters are complicated and you never really know what is going on in their heads, you can only speculate. The imagery of Martha's Vineyard from the 1940's to circa 1969 is vivid. The problem is that I wasn't crazy about the ending. It didn't seem to fit with the characters as I thought I understood them. I still really enjoyed it.

      I wanted to like this book so much more than I did. I trawled through it which is not a good way to read a book. I never found a character I was rooting for so to speak. I know the author was hoping for unique reading experience by giving 5 different perspectives in telling the story. It only came off as disjointed and unsatisfying.

      I liked this book. I enjoyed the time period – after WWII – 1960’s. I didn’t love the characters, but I wasn’t necessarily supposed to. If anything, I felt the most for the ‘icky’ one… I wanted things to be different for him. Everybody else was irritating. The ending wasn’t quite what I was expecting, but looking back, I should have seen it coming.
