I am glad I have read No Beast So "FIERCE THE TERRIFYING TRUE STORY OF THE CHAMPAWAT TIGER "The Terrifying True Story of the Champawat Tiger Deadliest Animal in History by Dane Huckelbridge so I am willing to give it three stars I will xplain both what I like and what I don t like I definitely do prefer John Vaillant s The Tiger A True Story of Vengeance and Survival It is also about a vengeful man Runaway Wedding eating tiger OK they are different so sure go ahead and read both You learn different things One is a Bengali tiger the other an Amur tiger One plays out in India and Nepal the other in Russia s Far EastDane Huckelbridge s book gives background information about tigers in general their natural habitats feeding patterns physical and behavioral attributes their origins and the myths that have risen up around them It speaks of the different kinds of tigers that havexisted and those that still Wicked Loving Lies exist today Encroachment of their habitats anver diminishing uantity of prey and La heredera del mar ecological changes wrought by man have led to decimation of the species An accusatory finger is pointed at man The book comes to focuses on one particular tigress one that became a manater humans became the tigress prey By providing historical background the book shows very clearly how this came to be and it shows why we human beings are at fault and thus why we must mend our ways By looking in depth at one particular tigress who killed a huge number of people and by putting the vents in an historical perspective the cause and ffect process becomes crystal clear Statistics and data are rigorously documented All of this I have liked I must mention though that at times the author repeats himself and oversimplifies This happens at the beginning than at The End Of The end of the At the beginning he tells us that tigers are big fast strong and smart Oh really It sounds at this point that the author is speaking to a class of kids As the telling continues the author fills out with interesting details about the English in India for xample About the man who ventually outsmarted and killed the Champawat tigress Be patient I found particularly interesting the historical information about the Tharus people living in Terai the wetlands grasslands at the foothills of the Himalayas OK so the presentation of facts Is Clear And The Information Provided Is Interesting However When clear and the information provided is interesting However when author turns to the chase and the final killing of the tigress the telling switches style and tries to become an xciting suspenseful adventure tale The author goes overboard His words now are meant to incite fear and horror To make matters worse he abruptly interrupts the telling and retreats into the revelation of historical facts I see this as a ploy to increase suspense and I do not like it I listened to an audiobook read by Corey Snow In the sections he deems to be the xciting parts he dramatizes and he does it in spades I do not like this I have given his performance two stars because in those parts when he uits with his overdramatization the reading is fine You clearly hear what he saysIt has been difficult for me to separate the audiobook performance from the book itself but I do think I have managed to distinguish between the two I do not like narrators to overdramatize When both Huckelbridge switches to the adventure tale style of writing and Snow to his dramatization mode I had difficulty Aramaic Bowl Spells: Jewish Babylonian Aramaic Bowls Volume One enjoying the book Tiger s gonna do what Tiger s gonna do Basically that was whatach chapter covered Can t imagine what living in those communities must have been like for those people who had no choice about sending kids to get water girls needing to walk through forests to work fathers hunting food for dinner and none returning in the hundreds I love sharks and reading about sharks planning my TV watching around shark weekwell this book showed me I m missing the land part of that obsession however I think it is simply because we have so few of them left so scary Once limiting boundries are abolished no reason to hold backBook probably went on a little longer than it needed to but otherwise a startling read I am unaware of tigers in our neighborhood but I ve been diligent about checking Xenophon And His World (Historia Einzelschriften) every lock since reading this book A fascinating history of a manating ti.
