Cat Out of Hell | [Lynne Truss]

Cat Out of Hell

A cottage on the coast on a windy evening. Under a pool of yellow light, two figures face each other across a kitchen table. A man and a cat. The story about to be related is so unusual yet so terrifyingly plausible that it demands to be told in a single sitting. The man clears his throat, and leans forward, expectant. 'Shall we begin?' says the cat….

    Story
    "Unusually gripping"

    I would like to say this whole story is the most peculiar and I would congratulate Lynne Truss on the genious of her imagination. I could not really tell from reading the initial introduction of this book what the whole content would be and yet it was funny, sad, hideous in some places, (especially the description of the library room), and I would say that although the story initially, for me, appeared to be a lighthearted story about a speaking cat, is a very sinister and dark murder that you know would just make a great television film. Mike Grady narrates the book well and is clear and easy on the ear. Cat Out of Hell is a brilliant title and just about describes the book perfectly, however, I did not really take it as seriously as the content of the book is. This book is not for pussycats, but I would highly recommend it if you are looking for something dark and satanic.

    Story
    "I just didn't get this book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It was odd and bizarre and it really wasn't for me. Listened to around an hour and then threw in the towel


    What was most disappointing about Lynne Truss’s story?

    I just didn't understand where this was going


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It was an odd almost comical voice, however there was little substance to the book.. Just not me


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Sorry just didn't appreciate this style of book


    Any additional comments?

    Onto something new

    Story
    "An unexpected pleasure!"

    I hadn't read anything by Lynne Truss before - I'd been rather wary of her as I wasn't that impressed by the excerpts I had read of her (in)famous grammar book. I found myself with an hour to fill and a generous free sample of 'The Cat out of Hell' that fitted the time available perfectly... and it hooked me totally! I hastily bought the rest of the book and enjoyed it enormously.

    The narration is wonderful, especially the voice of Roger the cat. Recommended listen, especially for cat-lovers!

    Story
    "E cel lent"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    An excellent listen well written and read with good humour and dark twists, if you are not a cat person and find them a bit scary this may just confirm all your fears

    Story
    "A very enjoyable read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I like the twists and turns in the plot and the way that the end is far removed from what one might imagine in the beginning.


    What other book might you compare Cat Out of Hell to, and why?

    Some kind of magic. Because it is rather different and "out of the box".


    Which character – as performed by Mike Grady – was your favourite?

    Roger, the cat


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Its a reasonably easy read but not too lightweight or shallow. It has an unusual plot and lots of surprises as you go through each chapter.

    Story
    "Mmmmarvelous little listen"
    Where does Cat Out of Hell rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Great little listen . Story has some lose ends but thats shouldn't put you off. A very entertaining read about a talking cat, a man and the devil. Finished it a weekend.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cat Out of Hell?

    enjoyed it all. But thought the ndog called Watson was quite endearing


    Have you listened to any of Mike Grady’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No - great narrator. Quite impressed he pulled of a talking cat..more than one in fact.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the ending


    Any additional comments?

    I used my £10 voucher for this and wasn't dissappointed at all. Great little listen.
