The Tiger's Wife - Téa Obreht

I really wanted to like this book more than I did. I had to admit that it was beautifully written, and from the first page I felt as though I had been cast under a spell by Tea Obreht’s lyrical narrative…but then I found that I could not get invested in the plot. I could read a few pages, but then feel the need to switch over to do something else, or read something else. There was several times where I even questioned whether I really wanted to finish it…or return it to my bookshelf to try again sometime down the road.
