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 thecat@thecatsdiary.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.

hello again my furry little friend. just wanted you to know im about halfway through this book of yours.i will explain. not too long after i got the damn thing i started reading it and of course im living and breathing so i lauhed till i hurt. in the meantime i became ill and ended up having a very large surgery on my abd and well lets just say i can identify with the trip to the vet and a few other things thrown in for good measure. im currently convalesing at home and have recently been able to start your book again. my husband being the greatest guy in the world printed out and brought your book to me in the hospital to read not knowing what it was about nor did he care and at first i was so happy then i started to read and you should know that if you have had abdominal surgery, this book isnt for you at that time. i laughed and then cried literally. so now im at home and can read again without pulling mucles. i have to stop from time to time because the laghing will make my sides sore. the dr. gave me the ok to drive last week and someone was giving away kittens. now i have never been a cat person always dogs which i have two of. schnauzers mimitaure and they are quite rotten but i wanted a cat and continue to want one. my husband of course says no and not in a polite way so just wanted you to know what uproar has been caused at this houshold and my husband and i agree it is all your fault. im loving it but still one must place blame where it belongs. i will let you know when i bring the cat home. im thinking of actually getting a kitten. what do u think since you started all of this? sending you and yours love, tina
