Publisher's Summary

A Suitable Boy meets Gone with the Wind in this sweeping, romantic debut novel set on a coffee plantation in southern India at the turn of the 20th century.
As the first girl born to the Nachimada family in over 60 years, the beautiful Devi is adored by her entire family. Strong-willed and confident, she befriends the shy Devanna, a young boy whose mother has died under tragic circumstances. The two quickly become inseparable, until Devi meets Machu the tiger killer, a hunter of great repute and a man of much honor and pride. Soon, they fall deeply in love, an attraction that drives a wedge between Devi and Devanna. It is this tangled relationship between the three that leads to a devastating tragedy—an event that changes their fates forever and has unforeseen and far-reaching consequences for generations to come.

A sweeping saga

Would you listen to Tiger Hills again? Why?

Yes, I would listen to it again. I found the background of Indian culture fascinating. I related well to the characters. The story held my interest.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Davanah (sp?) was my favourite character. He lived through such torture and yet remained a wonderful and nurturing human being.

Have you listened to any of Cassandra Campbell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no, I haven't.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I found Davy's comparison of the two boys particularly painful. I found her character to be highly annoying and distasteful.

Good, but could have been great

A very well written novel with a few shortcomings in character and story development. The protagonist just doesn't develop beyond a certain point, which is frustrating because she is the center of the story. The story is a family saga, which carries well but lacks originality. What carries the novel is the wonderful description of the landscape and culture.
