    "Love this series"
    Would you listen to Cat on the Edge again? Why?

    I have read all the books in this series and going back to listen to them is a delight.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Boyce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She does a good job with the various voices.


    Any additional comments?

    This series keeps me coming back. I feel I know the people in the village and care about how they are growing and changing. Of course the cats are the stars and they re believable along with their ancient magical heritage. There are many layers going on here that are interesting.

    "Great book for cat lovers and mystery lovers alike"
    Would you listen to Cat on the Edge again? Why?

    Yes, it is so entertaining;I laugh every time I think about some of the scenes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Jo Grey and his relationship with his human staff was the best part about the story.


    What about Susan Boyce’s performance did you like?

    She did a remarkable job portraying all the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It's no epic novel such as The Kite Runners or The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, but certain scenes still make me laugh outloud when I recall them.


    Any additional comments?

    Fun and kept me listening!

    "Just Not My Kind Of Mystery"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Shirley Rousseau Murphy again?

    Maybe, but it would have to be something out of this arena altogether.


    Any additional comments?

    It was just too creepy. Cats understanding us and vice versa is fine. But, when people turn into cats and the frequent in depth descriptions of what cats find wonderful about killing and eating other animals was just too much for me.
