History has known many famous cats - Garfield, Mr Bigglesworth, Simon's Cat, the Aristocats, the Cheshire cat and the Keyboard Cat on YouTube. In recent years these feline things have replaced man's best friend as the most popular pet in the U.S. while the Ancient Egyptians once worshipped them as gods. This was a mistake and I'm here to tell you why. Man vs Cat is the story of one man, one woman and the six cats that changed their lives forever.
Many moons ago a despotic cat named Charlie decided that he wanted to be a book critic. It would fit so nicely with his existing roles as food critic, dog critic and owner critic.

This first volume of The Bleaklisted Books sees Charlie review (pull to pieces) an array of literary masterpieces, including Ulysses, Charlotte's Web and Anna Karenina. Book lovers - and even cat lovers - beware! This could be the stuff of nightmares.
