A dinner conversation around India,
By A Customer
This review is from: India: The Tiger's Roar (Hardcover)
There's no doubting Aline Dobbie's passion for her country of birth. Here she leads us on an extended tour of the reserves in search of the elusive tiger.
The book feels rather like an enjoyable, extended dinner conversation. Wide-ranging and free flowing in subject matter, you put it down happy to have been informed, educated and entertained by each chapter.
And like the best dinner parties, your host seemingly takes no offence if you don't totally follow bits, or don't remember the names. But there are also numerous anecdotes which you will chase, and which will take you far from the tigers to the land of the gods, back to mid-20th century India, and even to the plains of Iraq on one entertaining thrust into modern politics.
