The Tiger's Wife - Téa Obreht My vocabulary is inadequate to describe how beautiful this book is. The story is told through several threads, weaving back and forth between the relative past and present, fantasy and reality. The way Obreht ties these threads together, and her breathtaking prose, is simply astonishing. I want to give this book to everyone I've ever met and beg them to read it. That's how much I loved it.
