Tiger, Tiger, a young-adult novelization of The X-Files episode titled “Fearful Symmetry,” is a poignant story that follows Agents Mulder and Scully as they investigate the trampling death of a federal construction worker by an escaped elephant—an invisible elephant, as witnesses claim. Further exploration reveals an impoverished Idaho zoo in danger of losing funding, a barbaric zookeeper, irreverent animal activists, a lowland gorilla capable of communicating in ASL, and strange animal disappearances that mayhaps be the machinations of alien conservationists.

Both the episode and book titles are a reference to the memorable poem by William Blake, published in his Songs of Experience collection (the 1790s). The poem, "Tyger, Tyger" functions as a contrasting companion to "The Lamb" (found in same collection), signifying the baleful intensity and ferociousness of the tiger beside the innocence and childlike wonder of the lamb, philosophically inquiring as to the creator(s) identity. These titles are interesting choices for a story that illustrates both the inherent dangers of certain animals—it's no mere happenstance that a Bengal tiger mauls an animal-rights activist—and their meeker side; namely, the hopeless efforts of Sophie the Gorilla to save her unborn child as well as her mercifulness toward Mulder when he becomes trapped in a container with the benevolent creature.

This book is one of author Les Martin's better adaptations, considering many of his X-Files novelizations fall flat as a result of uncharacteristic dialogue and unnecessarily dumbing-down the intellectual language to point of absurdity. In this case, however, Martin satisfactorily captures the evocative nature of the episode, of which can be a difficult read for bleeding-hearts like myself with a soft spot for animals. Much like the cattle mutilations, animal abduction phenomena is a largely unexplored facet of alien lore. Tiger, Tiger not only showcases man's inhumanity towards beast but also sees several majestic zoo animals killed after being spirited away in enigmatic bright light and returned miles from the zoo. It's suggested that the aliens are engineering their own version of Noah’s Ark by preserving those species endangered by mankind’s recklessness. The story’s obvious stance on human encroachment and the need to preserve such magnificent creatures from certain extinction reflects the moral intuition of many, I believe, which proves to be a saving grace for this under-cooked story and, ultimately, mediocre read.

Tiger, Tiger features a host of compelling ideas and issues regarding animal rights and planetary stewardship that are sadly undeveloped. The plight of the zoo animals will tug at readers' heartstrings, but the meandering plot and half-baked attempt at diegetic depth sadly amounts to little more than a clumsy, overambitious installment. Like such unrefined episodes as "Space" and "Genderbender", "Fearful Symmetry" trades on the series' alien mythos without directly linking itself to the over-arching conspiracy. To be fair, The X-Files was in the midst of its sophomore season and still endeavoring to hit its stride. Readers will likely appreciate the book’s unexplained, open-ended resolution. The motives of these apparent extraterrestrial conservationists is never revealed, leaving an appropriate degree of mystery and wonder that will linger in the minds of readers after the final page. In short, a fairly respectable adaptation of a B-movie premise.

X-Files Tiger, Tiger

I believe that Les Martin is one of the best science fiction novelists of all time. She has written many X-Files books. They are all among an eleven book series. I know anyone who reads this book will want to read the rest of the books in the series. This book is a definite page-turner, terribly hard to put down. Not enough crimes is not a problem in this

All the problems in this book as well as in the whole series of books is solved by Dana Scully and Fox Molder two main detectives from the FBI headquarters in Washington D.C. All the crazy actions among this wild town are in the state of Pennsylvania. The crimes that go on are taking its toll on this town, first of an elephant mysteriously escapes from its ten-foot high concrete walls, trampling many citizens and historical sites. Another animal soon escapes it just happens to be a tiger, when it is getting let out it attaches and kills Kyle Lang. After this second crime takes place the detectives come to the conclusion that a man named Kyle Lang is against zoos and keeping animals from there habitat he is taking action and letting animals out of their cages. This book is intended for ages 10-12; this book deserves five out of five stars.

The book followed the show pretty well all in all. It made for a good afternoon's reading. I will enjoy reading it again. Anyone who enjoyes the television show will like this book.
