Thrilling Anthropomorphism

Rip-roaring adventures - Books - Times Online

Amanda Craig enjoys Tiger! by Geoffrey Malone:

Geoffrey Malone, an admired writer of animal adventures, has turned his attention in Tiger! to the struggles of Kuma, a female in a reserve in central India. Kuma is about to give birth, and her story begins with her desperation to kill an antelope to gain the energy she needs. Malone describes Kuma�s careful tracking, her lucky kill, and her retreat to the secret cave she has found to give birth in clear, dramatic prose. Her story is one of heart-stopping courage and pathos, which adults may dismiss as anthropomorphism but which thrills the same way as London�s White Fang does.
