    Billed as a classic English farce but failing to live up to its initial promise, I didn t really know what to make of this Raj era novel The story starts out well, introducing us to the odd characters and caricatures who populate Jamalpur and several narrative threads are set up which, when ultimately tied together, could have made for a very funny comedy of manners, class and other people s husbands However, the author didn t seem to know when to stop bringing incharacters so eventually Billed as a classic English farce but failing to live up to its initial promise, I didn t really know what to make of this Raj era novel The story starts out well, introducing us to the odd characters and caricatures who populate Jamalpur and several narrative threads are set up which, when ultimately tied together, could have made for a very funny comedy of manners, class and other people s husbands However, the author didn t seem to know when to stop bringing incharacters so eventually ended up with a confusing mass of ill defined people Even the final set piece Apprentices Ball I felt was short changed There isn t much historical detail although I thought Ayre captured the snobbery and divided society of Raj era India well The Roar Of The Tiger is an ok read, but could use strong editing to bring out its full potential.Seeof my book reviews on my blog, Literary Flits

    In the English railroad township of Jamalpur things are strange This book is a bit confusing to me, but it is supposed to beEnglish humor and maybe that is why I take it every one in the town is a bit mad and crazy as they prepare for a ball For me sometimes it was clever and sometimes it was a bit confounding.

  3. Judith Judith says:

    Old school farce set in British Raj India The ending is too hasty and a head scratcher, but in general a pleasant quick read, with humor in the vein of Evelyn Waugh stories.
