Sharpe's Tiger

Written by Jean from Santa Cruz, CA on January 27th, 2011

  • Book Rating: 5/5

This book takes place in India and Sharpe is a private. Frederick Davidson did a great job narrating the story. I wish I had be able to read this series in order but each story stands alone so it is not as disruptive as some series are. Cornwell is a master of the battle scene. I felt as if I was in the city right beside Sharpe. The fight with the tiger was breathtaking. Can not wait for another Sharpe story.

Great story, well-paced. Brilliantly narrated. I enjoyed the informative history behind the novel, which was provided at the end. While I am happy to see that this book club is bringing in more of the Richard Sharpe novels, they seem to be several of the later ones. This is a major complaint with this club - they often have onle a few of a particular series, making it frustrating for the listener to enjoy a complete set.
