Tiger Drive: a novel 4.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Peter Mires 8 months ago
"Tiger Drive" is an amazing novel. Author Teri Case has crafted a compelling story about a Nevada family which she describes as partially autobiographical. It is, however, totally unlike the coming-of-age novels you may associate with the Silver State, such as "The City of Trembling Leaves," by Walter Van Tilburg Clark (whose father was a university president) or "The Basque Hotel," by Robert Laxalt (whose brother became a governor and U.S. Senator). The Sloan family, as portrayed by Ms. Case, lived a precarious existence filled with dreams and hardships, and not in equal measure. It may, in fact, serve as a case study (no pun intended) in how the other half lives.

I just finished reading TIGER DRIVE, and after wiping my tears, I am writing my review. I'll be careful to not add any spoilers here, because I'd hate to give away the ending. Carrie is a high-schooler, a worrier, a list-writer (she calls them her "road maps to a different life"), and a shooting star to a hopefully brighter future. Her mother, Janice, is a singing star-wannabe, whose poor choices have dulled her shine ... but yet she never gives up hope. Harry, the father, is what I'd call a fallen star; he gives us a peek into depression, secrets, sadness ... and—in spite of it all—love. And finally, big brother WJ (a star in his own right), is a man full of anger, disappointment, and angst over the fear of being his authentic self. I love this story, which gives a truthful glimpse into family dysfunction, lies, and poverty, and the turmoil that's created when these issues seep into personal lives. This is a debut novel by author Teri Case, and I think she has done a wonderful job. It's hard to believe it's her first novel, and the effort shows.

It starts off heavy and the pages start turning. Sometimes you're rooting for and against a character in the span of five pages. The author does a great job of keeping the characters honest in their horribly flawed ways while leavings small crumbs to their redemption. I read it in 4 nights. Thank you.
