Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton

Clarion Books 2010

Tyger Tyger presented an amazing adventure in 304 pages which, in my opinion, is way too short. The plot, ideas, and characters are unique and the references to irish folklore created a new doorway to a simply hypnotic story. However, the physical medium crushes this new world to fit inside its frame causing confusion over the subjects that were glanced upon rather than being pruged. A frame is fitted for its picture not a picture is fitted into its frame and 304 pages is not the right frame for this story.

Rating: 4 Better than most
