Reviews for my books in the reviewers' own words
Below you will find five reviews chosen randomly from hundreds of reviews sent in by my
really lovely and rather cuddly readers for my books "Getting Out" and "The Cat's Travelogue."
I knew I was brilliant but until now I didn't know just how brilliant I was, so thanks to all of my
readers and do keep sending your comments, I really value them.
If you want to write to The Cat his personal email address is
email@example.com, it by-passes all of the flunkies who troll about working for me, I promise.
One of the things I liked about The Cat was that he had very strong opinions on almost everything: British/US spelling such as color (I have always thought that Americans cared about ‘U’ after all they are always wishing one, ‘You have a nice day,’), hygiene (”Is there anything more hygienic than a Cat?“), taking notes (”it is a little like talking to one’s self and therefore should be kept to a minimum because it must be a sign of madness“), and many many more. Nevertheless he does admit he cannot know it all, usually justifying it by saying something like “what do I know, I’m just a cat” :)
The manuscript contains some pretty funny scenes, one of my favorites being the part where Cat’s “Captors” try to acquaint him with the litter box. When I got my cat one of the first things I did was to look up on Google how does one get a cat to use the litter box. The answer was something along the lines of “show him the litter box, then take its front paws and dig around a bit”. Which is what I did (and luckily my cat got the idea from the first) and also what Cat’s owners (slash “Captors”) did. It was thus interesting to see the situation I’ve been in through Cat’s eyes — he considered it to be forced labor! :) :)
It is perhaps worth mentioned that reading this manuscript has been a novel experience for me, because I was, for the very first time, rooting for the main hero not to succeed I didn’t want the story to end.
