    Hill writes with depth and clarity. His characters come alive because of his ability to describe multi-facet personalities. His mysteries are complex, well written and in the end, satisfying.

    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.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Cat's Table the most enjoyable?

    It is hard to know whether it's the author reading his own work, his language or the wonder of the story that makes this book so captivating. On every level it is a wonderful tale of adventure and growth.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was totally immersed in the story which is a tale of a boy traveling to England on his own. He befriends two other boys on the ship and proceed to have adventures that are both exciting and believable. The adults who influence them on this journey are colorful and beautiful described.
