It's a good story premise peppered with severed fingers, romance, superstition, gambling debts, weretigers & colonial cocktail parties. There's a heavy dose of dream sequences and a touch of magical realism as well as a murder mystery central to the plot. But it's the scope of the novel that for me is its achilles heel - there's lots going on and the author uses a few to many coincidences to get a rather convoluted plot move along.

marleed I liked it but didn‘t love it either. I think maybe it was bad timing for me because I read so many positive reviews and get how they feel. 1d
Soubhiville I love your description: severed fingers being a mentionable plot point 🤣. I‘m seeing quite a few mixed reviews about this one. Hope you had fun with the buddyread discussions! 1d
Mitch @marleed Yeah... Me too - the food mentioned in it had me craving to try some! 1d

Mitch @Soubhiville It was one of those books that is good enough to make you care that it wasn‘t better! A little more mystery and a little less ‘tell‘ with a lot more ‘show‘ and it would have been a pick! 1d
Mitch @Soubhiville as always though - the book experience was enhance x1000%by the buddy read! 🏆 1d
Soubhiville Ok, bizarre coincidence: the book I‘m reading today has severed fingers too! What‘re the chances of that happening?! Lol. 1d
Mitch @Soubhiville that‘s a sub genre within a sub genre within a sub genre 🤣🤣🤣 1d

Night Tiger combines magical realism, historical fiction, and mystery genres. I loved the 1930s Malaysia setting and the folklore (weretigers-- hello!). Plot needed tweaks but kept my interest.

Sharing and discussing this book with #BOTMbuddyread Littens made it all the better.😘
