Journal Entry 1 by caterinax from Thessaloniki - Θεσσαλονίκη, Thessaloniki Greece on Saturday, April 06, 2013
It is an interesting and unusual story and has a positive, uplifting message at its core: that you can turn your life around and that caring for someone else sometimes is all the motivation you need. Also, it's about a cool cat, so how more cute can you go?

However, for me, the message is not enough. The book is written in a very straightforward way and I would have preferred something more 'literary'. This is possibly another case of " unfortunate book sequencing" or theremustbesometerm describing the influence of the previously read book that is carried in the fresh one and affects my perception or even enjoyment of it. Unfortunately for Street Cat Bob, I started reading it immediately after reading a Pratchett book for the first time. I went from laughing my head off and admiring the unusual metaphors and the sparkling dialogue to something very very very simple. I know he is not supposed to be a literary figure or an author, but the book was ghost-written anyway and,personally, I would appreciate metaphors, even in weather reports.

Nevertheless, it makes for a pleasant and easy read with a heart-warming subject.
