My 12-year-old daughter and I listen to The Cat Who books because we like cats and the books are clean and trustworthy. No bad language or adult situations. It's a fun thing to do together. But not this time!
My daughter is certain that I downloaded it wrong and that there is something wrong with our copy. I wish that was the case! It is the lamest book I have ever read or listened to!
The characters are out of character, the plot is plotless, and the dialogue is inane. I can't say enough bad things about this book. Polly dumps Qwill and her cats by sending a letter. Why doesn't Qwill use the telephone to call her? He can afford the call! Instead, he mopes around. We figured she was kidnapped -- turns out she was -- by the so-called author. Then Qwill's famous barn burns down. Oh well. Arsonists will be arsonists. I expect in the next episode, which I will not be reading, that the ghostwriter will have the cats run over by a car. Qwill's response will be that he's glad it was quick and they suffered no pain.
Meanwhile, we listeners/readers have been greatly tortured. Listen to one of LJB's old books, or a book by another author. Don't touch this one! It deserves NO stars!
I've listened to a number of Audible's Terry Pratchett books and this is the first one I can't get through. The narrator doesn't have a good understanding of the witches' personalities and her interpretation of their voices and speech patterns destroys the book. Very disappointing.
