Tigerman by Nick Harkaway

The island of Mancreu is dying. Decades of lax environmental protection has resulted in the island being almost uninhabitable, and the international community has simply decided that it is easier for them to re-home the people and cleanse the island then it is to fix the problem. Amidst all this an aging sergeant, sent to the island to end his army career in peace, befriends a young boy and attempts to navigate the significant changes brought about by living on an island that has been condemned.
Tigerman is one of those fantastic books that grabs you about halfway through and compels you to finish it as quickly as you can. The book is worth it for the world building alone, but Harkaway has also created a work that is genuinely moving and very entertaining without it crossing the line into the melodramatic. All in all this is a great read that embraces its entertaining and outlandish ideas and combines them with a dramatic plot, to make a book that is both fun and worthwhile.
