I could not put this book down. I really (excuse the pun) tore through it. This true story of a man-eating tiger on one hand is a heart-pounding adventure in a "Jaws" kind of way. Yet it also does a great job of putting the incident in a socio-economic, environmental, and geopolitical context--giving us an unforgettable portrait of a region and way of life many of us know very little about.
