    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"
    "Authors reading their books"

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

    I was interested in the story but had a hard time understanding the reader.
    The authors are seldom good narrators.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Ondaatje?

    A person with clear voice and narrating talents which Ondaatje does not have.


    Was The Cat's Table worth the listening time?

    No, I'll have to get a it in book form.
