Note: All my reviews are spoiler free!
The moving, uplifting true story of an unlikely friendship between a man on the streets and the ginger cat who adopts him and helps him heal his life.
I’d heard of Bob the street cat, but it was only recently that I got round to reading it. (I’m on a real animal book kick at the moment.)
While I like reading about inspirational animals, I’m always a little weary because I cannot handle reading about animal abuse or them being in pain. I’ll bawl like a baby. I’ve stopped reading books and watching films because of this.
Fortunately, this book doesn’t focus much on the negative’s, but, rather on Bob and James Bowen’s story as they save each other and form an amazing bond.
But it’s not only about a man and cat, it gives you a view of the homeless and how they live and feel, what they have to go through.
It’s written in first person and is very easy to read, like a story rather than just a list of facts. I finished this book within a couple of days and this was with breaks as I did other stuff.
To sum up, Well written, thought provoking
