The Tiger Lillies were formed in 1989 and as the decades go by their sound remains one of the most unique and original things one could come across. Martyn Jacques, the band's front man, songwriter and founder, spent most of his twenties in a flat above a brothel in London's Soho, peeping through his window at the buzz of Soho’s lowlife. It took him a good ten years to turn that strange world into art, while training as a singer and songwriter. In 1989 he got his first accordion and The Tiger Lillies were formed shortly after.

Tiger Lily turned out to be a different book than I expected. The ending of this book was totally satisfying as well for all of the characters, even little Tinker Bell. Peter Pan, as an original tale, had a touch of magic and fantasy but we barely get any magic in this book. I can't say enough good things about it. It's easy to see why fairy tell retellings are so popular with books like Tiger Lily out there, waiting to be discovered.

The Tiger Lillies' closest flirtation with popular success came when Jacques created the music for the 1998 "junk opera" Shockheaded Peter, based on Heinrich Hoffmann's book. Jacques won an Olivier for his performance in the mock-cautionary tale for children

The Tiger Lillies' closest flirtation with popular success came when Jacques created the music for the 1998 "junk opera" Shockheaded Peter, based on Heinrich Hoffmann's book. Jacques won an Olivier for his performance in the mock-cautionary tale for children. But otherwise, the band has generally been content to operate beneath the radar, issuing over 30 albums dealing with every conceivable form of necrosis and neurosis, including 1997's notorious Farmyard Filth, a suite of songs about bestiality.

The Tiger Lillies are a cult British musical trio formed in 1989 by singer-songwriter Martyn Jacques. Described as the forefathers of Brechtian Punk Cabaret, the Tiger Lillies are well known for their unique sound and style which merges "the macabre magic of pre-war Berlin with the savage edge of punk". The band's name is rumoured to have been inspired by a murdered Soho prostitute called Lillie who used to dress up in animal print.

Always the wedding coordinator, Lillie Bauer makes brides' dreams come true, but when it comes to her own love life, she's never the bride. Fifteen years after the mysterious disappearance of her childhood sweetheart, Ted, Lillie --bungee-jumper, book addict, and delightfully offbeat coordinator of “extreme” high-concept weddings--is ready to find love again. As she boldly but reluctantly braves a disastrous dating scene, Lillie is caught between two images of married life-- the rich, lifelong partnership shared by her parents and the troubled marriage of her younger sister, Tacy. Faced with long-buried feelings, fears for Tacy, and concerns about her father’s failing health, Lillie finds strength in an unlikely community of loved ones, including Cristoff, her epileptic, florist business partner; Pleasance, a sassy clothing designer; and her Hungarian Grandma Erzsébet. When Lillie stumbles across a danger that threatens those she loves most, she'll need more than friends and family to get through it– she's going to need a miracle.

It took a little bit to grasp what was going on ( maybe I'm slow), but once I grasped the storyline...wow what a ride. I love the characters, so much life, so much personality!

This is a story about a family who have survived hardships and flourished, about two sisters growing up and their struggle with their self image, their gifting, and their relationship with their creator. It's about God and how His son made a relationship with Him simple and beautiful, and about how the enemy of our soul likes to twist and distort that simple truth into something twisted and impossible. It's about good triumphing evil, faith beating down despair.

It's funny, surprising, sad, happy, you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll bite your nails; it runs the emotional gamut.

You'll be better for having read it and you will enjoy the ride!

I'm a huge Lisa Samson fan, but had never read this one. It's an unusual writing style, switching back and forth between characters and time periods in a way that is kind of hard to follow, and I was probably a third of the way through the book before I really caught on to the story. This was a book club selection, so I persevered, and ended up appreciating the unusual storyline, covering a topic of legalism in the church that isn't often discussed. It did lead to a great discussion for our bookclub, which is a big plus!

This sounded like a fun book and indeed it was. Knew how it would end, just didn't know how they would get there.

A good story

This is just not my style of writing. The story teller throws in too many random thoughts that (in my opinion) have nothing to do with the story line. The book was selected for my Christian Book Club so I felt I needed to finish it for the discussion. Had I not had that restriction I wouldn't have lasted past 10%. When I hit 80%, the book became exciting and I had to finish it.

I've read this book twice and both times I've read it in only one sitting, not able to tear myself away. It tells one story.. From two sisters' perspectives. You'll laugh and cry.. and feel firmly convinced that God makes extraordinarily delightful people who sometimes find themselves friends..

This was such an excellent book. This book dealt with a woman who was struggling to get her sister and niece out of an

abusive situation.

This book was just about the abusive situation. The book also talked about Lillie's struggles with her love life and about

her quirky set of friends. They were so fun to read about. And I liked the balance in the book, between something so horrible as abuse, but as fun as friends and romance.

I love the humor in the book. I really loved how 6 year old Lillie was envisioning "skeletons in her closet".

Samson creates such unique characters in her books. Many books portray characters who are so glamorous. Samson's characters

may not be the most glamorous, but her characters are everyday people with quirks just like everyone else.

I also loved how she interwove life in communist Hungary into the book, and the story of Lillie's mother's escape from

Hungary. The women in this book are remarkable.

I highly recommend this book. I can't wait for Samson's next book.
Tiger Lillie will crush your heart and make you feel all warm-fuzzy inside. And, Ms. Samson... oh, this lady will make me a lifelong fan.

This novel is unique and doesn't disappoint. It's vibrant, lovely, sweet, eccentric, funny, profound, and wildly purposeful.

This book is almost a five-star book. I'd give it 4.5 if I could. Occasionally the sentences get a tad too complex and seem to lose themselves in the words, and all the wealth and pomp around the characters seems improbable and a little weird, but I enjoyed it so much, besides, I know I'll even reread sometime down the road.
