A Street Cat named Bob - James Bowen

Share it Please
The saying goes, "Never judge a book by it's cover."

I'm not being funny, but it has a big ginger cat on it. I knew I would love this book. 

I was right. Duhh. ;)

Anyway, review time. This book is serious, funny, honest...and many words that I haven't thought of.

It is pretty obvious what the story will be. Man finds cat. Become best friends. Struggle but live together  happily ever after. 

It is so much more than that. There were points that it was reducing me to tears from being sad, to crying with laughter. Being a fellow animal owner probably has something to do with it, but I really cannot stress how well written this book is.

I started reading it as I was en route to Reading. After 45 minutes I was on page 99. I then read a newspaper on the rest of the way. The next day I started reading it on the way back. I finished it by the time I got home. It is THAT good!

The lovely thing about this book is that it is not just about the cat, Bob. It also follows the story of his owner, James. You learn how cats do not just rely on their owners, but also how owners rely on their cats. (I'm having a cuddle with my main man now!)

I don't want to give too much away, as you really need to read it yourself so that you an understand what I mean. 

Anyway, get out there and  buy this book! It is fantastic, all animal lovers will adore it!
