    Story

    In the early 1950s, an eleven-year-old boy in Colombo boards a ship bound for England. At mealtimes he is seated at the “cat’s table” - as far from the Captain’s Table as can be - with a ragtag group of “insignificant” adults and two other boys, Cassius and Ramadhin. As the ship makes its way across the Indian Ocean, through the Suez Canal, into the Mediterranean, the boys tumble from one adventure to another, bursting all over the place like freed mercury.

    Amanda says: "Superb - But Not For All Readers or All Situations"
    "Sometimes authors shouldn't read their books"

    What did you like best about The Cat's Table? What did you like least?

    I love Ondaatje's characters and he develops a good story. I wish I could have enjoyed it more and would have with a better reader.


    Would you recommend The Cat's Table to your friends? Why or why not?

    I may read the book and then decide.


    What didn’t you like about Michael Ondaatje’s performance?

    I have heard MO in person and he is a compelling speaker. As a reader he is difficult to follow -- far too soft and rather flat in his presentation. Such a shame.


    Was The Cat's Table worth the listening time?

    No - it was hard to follow because of the poor presentation.
