Tigers in Red Weather | Liza Klaussmann
22 posts | 22 read | 19 to read
Summer seemed to arrive at that moment, with its mysterious mixture of salt, cold flesh and fuel.Nick and her cousin, Helena, have grown up sharing sultry summer heat, sunbleached boat docks, and midnight gin parties on Martha's Vineyard in a glorious old family estate known as Tiger House. In the days following the end of the Second World War, the world seems to offer itself up, and the two women are on the cusp of their 'real lives': Helena is off to Hollywood and a new marriage, while Nick is heading for a reunion with her own young husband, Hughes, about to return from the war. Soon the gilt begins to crack. Helena's husband is not the man he seemed to be, and Hughes has returned from the war distant, his inner light curtained over. On the brink of the 1960s, back at Tiger House, Nick and Helena--with their children, Daisy and Ed--try to recapture that sense of possibility. But when Daisy and Ed discover the victim of a brutal murder, the intrusion of violence causes everything to unravel. The members of the family spin out of their prescribed orbits, secrets come to light, and nothing about their lives will ever be the same.Brilliantly told from five points of view, with a magical elegance and suspenseful dark longing, Tigers in Red Weather is an unforgettable debut novel from a writer of extraordinary insight and accomplishment.

August was an ok month for me. I spent too much time with family and friends to get much reading done. But that‘s fine with me! 😃 Tigers in Red Weather was probably my favorite book last month.

Reviewsbylola The Wicked Boy was DNF for me too. So bad. I‘ve been so disappointed with all of her books besides 2mo

Brian took the kids to see Lion King, so my parents and I are spending a quiet, rainy afternoon reading on the porch. Apparently my dad can only read in complete silence. 🙄😆

TrishB Wish I was in that complete silence! Sounds wonderful 😁 2mo

Cathythoughts I‘m the same as your dad 👍🏻. Has to be complete silence ( only nature sounds are good ) then one of my daughters loves background noise 🤷🏻‍♀️ (edited) 2mo

I over planted tomatoes this year, so today is a day for #audiocooking. The narrator of this book uses that affected, rich east coast voice so well. The audio version is a joy to listen to - you can almost feel the pearls around your neck and the martini in your hand. 🍸

During #puppynaptime today, I‘m finally starting this one for a Goodreads buddy read. We have been joined by Gertrude the cat. 🖤 I sure hope the book is as good as the cover.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I love this cover ❤️ 3mo
Mdargusch It‘s striking @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks ! Meanwhile, See How Small is an interesting book. That writing style is tough for me. 3mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Mdargusch honestly I‘m not liking it 😥 3mo

These are my Goodwill purchases!! Aren't those covers beautiful!! Because I'm a sucker for covers I have a book to give away! I bought Crazy Rich Asians from Thriftbooks and the book cover is missing! 😩😩Now I have 2! I haven't ever been disappointed with their books, but I am with this one... I'm too picky! It was only $3.00 tho. It's not one I would want to send as a gift! Anyone in the US interested? First person to comment gets it!

islandstorygirl Yes, please? I just moved to Alaska but left my copy of Crazy Rich Asians back home! 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @islandstorygirl yay!!! I hope it's ok that you can tell it's a used book!! I just love book covers and I had just bought an extra one this morning at Goodwill! Alaska! That sounds interesting!!! This is my email if you will send me your address! mistymichelle22@att.net 2y
islandstorygirl @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Oh yay, thank you! I don't mind used books (or coverless ones) at all! Sending you an email right away! Thank you! 2y

Nice reading for a sunny weather! (Or not) Elegantly written.
1."A murder mystery set among the bored housewives of 1950s New England is a cut above your average beach read." 2."Tigers in Red Weather is an almost unbearably compelling story of liars, lust, and secrets. It heralds the arrival of a fierce literary talent." Entertaining level: ???? #Persefone #booklover #2015Sha #DogsOfLitsy

I'm interpreting #dreamingofawarmerclimate as hot book titles. I don't know what 'red weather' is but it sounds warm #readjanuary

RealLifeReading Nice stack! 3y
Kimzey Catching tigers in red weather is a line from a Wallace Stevens poem, "Disillusionment of Ten O'Clock." I'll post the poem and you can decide what it means as the book title. ?. 3y
Reganw I listened to The Fireman on audio...it was over 22 hours long lol. I liked it! 3y

This story about family allows a cast of deeply flawed, yet elegantly crafted characters be the focus. Told from five points of view, the novel explores the idea that the way we see ourselves isn't always harmonious with how the world views us in return.

I'm not sure what I think about this book. I was waiting for something to happen but it never really. It's about a few events from four people's perspectives which I just didn't find that interesting. It's didn't seem to flow for me all.

This was a DNF for me. I got a third through but the story didn't excite me sufficiently to continue. I thought it well written though.

A family of dysfunctional people having problems in (semi) olden times. Also murder. Need I say more...

This was good on audio. Recommended for fans of The Invaders by Karolina Waclawiak.
