Matching the resonant voices of Susan Duerden and Robin Sachs with the rich prose of Obreht was a stroke of genius. The stories in this audiobook weave and unravel many threads—threads connecting Natalia (performed with grace by Duerden) and her grandfather (rumbled beautifully by Sachs) to one another and to their perpetually war-torn Balkan home. Duerden’s Natalia is an earnest doctor who cares for her country’s orphans as she comes to terms with her grandfather’s recent death. The loss of this loving constant in her life haunts her in the form of her grandfather’s stories—vivid, often bizarre tales best told by Sachs, whose raspy tone goes far to endear his character to any listener. Meandering, enchanting, tragic, and hopeful, THE TIGER’S WIFE makes for superb listening. L.B.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2011]
