By acclaimed storyteller Lynne Truss, author of the bestselling Eats, Shoots and Leaves, the mesmerising tale of a cat with nine lives, and a relationship as ancient as time itself and just as powerful. The scene: a cottage on the coast on a windy evening. Inside, a room with curtains drawn. Tea has just been made. A kettle still steams. Under a pool of yellow light, two figures face each other across a kitchen table. A man and a cat. The story about to be related is so unusual yet so terrifyingly plausible that it demands to be told in a single sitting. The man clears his throat, and leans forward, expectant. 'Shall we begin?' says the cat.

I received a free copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads!I love the idea of evil talking cats, but maybe this book wasn’t quite to my humour. I didn’t really feel the ‘funny’ in it. I liked the book, I found it interesting, but I don’t think I got as much out of it as I was wanting. I thoug...
