My dad gave me this to read one Sunday when I was the horror w out a book and the library was closed It s not something I might have picked for myself, but my final assessment is WOW Very suspenseful, very interesting, and a thought provoking ending The story itself is kind of like Jaws meets Rudyard Kipling it s about a domesticated circus tiger that escapes and begins eating the locals in rural Georgia captured brilliantly in all its poverty, color, heat and characters And yes, you can t help but root for the tiger Rest assured that, unlike Jaws, this story is so much than man vs beast, and it really takes off when legendary tiger hunter Jim Graham arrives Graham is a quiet, reserved gentleman who leaves retirement in England to slay the beast, but he is so intelligent, and so respectful of nature and animals, even as he hunts them, you cannot help but root for him as well According to the author a retired journalist , Graham was based on legendary tiger hunter Jim Corbett The novel takes on an almost spiritual quality as you re drawn into a subplot about a young mountain boy being raised if you can call it that but a mentally handicapped mother The kid is basically feral, but he s whip smart and knows the mountains and all its critters intimately He feels a bond with the tiger which may or may not be mutual but joins forces with Graham to hunt the giant cat I won t say any about the ending, because it will make you blink rapidly, and why spoil it Fun read, a bit predictable at times and the writing style bored me a bit, but it was worth the read No strong female characters which was LAME This book was captivating, enthralling, and edge of your seat exciting from the first page to the last and was peppered with some great humor that moved it right along I loved it This book took me by surprise It is a nonstop thrill ride It has become one of my all time favs This book was heart pounding page turner and I loved every minute of it One of my favorite all time reads. This book was fantastic It follows the story of an escaped man eating tiger as he terrorizes the residents of rural Georgia, and how he is seen through the eyes of the different characters. One of my favorite books It kept my heart pounding with the suspense. *FREE EPUB ↾ Shikar ⇨ Shikar Marks The Spectacular Debut Of Jack Warner Totally Absorbing, It Is A Thriller Of Verve, Accomplishment, Tension, And Imaginative Power This Is The Kind Of Story That Keeps Us Awake And Reading Into The Early Morning Hours, Makes Us Miss Our Stop, Forces Us To Be Late For Appointments Shikar Pits Grady Brickhouse, Sheriff Of Harte County, Georgia, Against An Unlikely But Fearsome Opponent A Full Grown Bengal Tiger That Has Somehow Found Its Way Into His Jurisdiction Brickhouse Happens To Be Very Good At His Job Keeping The Peace In His Sleepy Corner Of The Huge Forested Wilderness At The Southern Terminus Of The Appalachian Trail A Former High School Principal, Brickhouse Is Known As A Gentle And Fair Man, People Like Him But He S No Match For The Tiger, One Of The Most Powerful And Cunning Predators On The Planet Few Humans Are, And Every Hunter Who Goes Into The Woods After The Beast Is Taken Out In Pieces Grady Is Going To Have To Find Someone Or Something That Can Do Something Damn Quick The Death Toll Mounts Every Day, The Media And The Politicians Are Clamoring For Something To Be Done And Something Strange Is Going On That Grady Just Can T Put His Finger On, Something That Doesn T Add Up Shikar Is Fresh And Inventive Jack Warner Performs Storytelling Magic In The Clear, Resonant Style Of The Classic Adventures Of Jack London, Rudyard Kipling, And Michael CrichtonIt Is A Novel You Will Never Forget
