I agree w/ajokitty. NO NO NO!!! The barn burns down, and Qwill just...goes on with his day like it was nothing? No way. Polly blows him off after being with him for over a decade?? I don't think so. I was so disappointed. DID LJB write this, or did she die and her son/daugher/husband/whatever is writing in her name now?? Why all the huge changes? The best parts of The Cat Who books was the familiarity.
Yep, shoulda quit maybe 3 books ago, because the last 2 cat who books were both forgetable.
I would not recommend this book. The plot is uninteresting as if the author had simply run out of steam. There are catastrophic events which are never explored or explained. Removing Polly Duncan from the storyline is also a disappointment without basis for longtime fans of this series. The story begins nowhere and ends the same way.
I would recommend this to a friend or grandchildren exciting for any age.
Lois Inchpot's at her eatery shows the true town lunchroom and friendly atmosphere.
I couldn't imagine listening to The Cat Who books read by anyone else.
Mostly laugh, but cry when I think she is gone. The world lost a true storyteller.
I would put this in my must listen to and read folder. I could start all over with her first book and relive the entire tale. No pun intended.
It wasn't bad, but it didn't draw me in like the other books, it was kind of flat...
If he wasn't reading I wouldn't even buy the book, he brings life to this book when there was scant life to be found...
No, the other books yes.
Over all disappointed, Qwill's lack of emotion throughout the book was shocking, it just didn't feel right.
Not up to the normal level of Lilian Jackson Braun's work. Story is weak and broken.
Just to see what the koko was going to discover and show Mr. Q.
Ko Ko because he is the smart cat who really makes these books so enjoyable.
Love listening to George Guidall and the many charactor voices he gives. I believe Chief Brody would be one of my favorite.
Does he really have 60 whiskers?
I like Miss Brauns books because anyone can read or listen to them with no foul language.It is a sad thing that there will be no more books or stories her. May she rest in peace.
I like the narration of the book. I have liked listening to George Guidall for a long time now with the way he can do the voices of the characters and make me laugh. What I like least about the book is that it didnt grasp my attention as many of the other books in the series has.
The book has turned me off. I still enjoy the series in general.
Qwilleran has always been my favorite character.
No I cannot see this book as a movie again because it didnt grab my attention immediately as the rest of the books in this series have in the past. I did listen to the entire book but the story just didnt grab a hold of me.
The mystery is pretty light, even by Braun's standards, but the narrator, George Guidall, has such a pleasant voice that is perfect for a rush-hour commute.
Lillian Jackson Braun is a talented writer that fills your life with comfort ,ease and joy. Her books are well written,entertaining and leave you wanting to read the next one. Thank you for a delightful read.
