Just Missed The Mark


The Tiger by John Valiant

Whilst I enjoyed this book and the tale contained within its pages I could only bring myself to give it three stars. The story has all the makings of a spellbinding read. A psychotic tiger terrorising locals in Siberia and the hunt to find it, sounds awesome does it not?

The mechanics of the book is what detracted from the enjoyment of this read. It jumped around too much for me from chapter to chapter at times I forgot what the main narrative was. Why the information given was interesting I feel that there was too much "other" information given. It may boil down to the fact I am a male and the author asked me to multi-task with the narrative I will leave it for you to decide.

3 Stars
