I was so disappointed in this book
Any additional comments?
I hated this book. I bought this book because I just lost one of my beloved cats, Marbles, and I was hoping a book like this would help me with my grief. It did not. The narrator's accent grated on my nerves, the choices the "human" makes on behalf of her cats often angered me.I had 5 cats (now 4) and I volunteer for animal organizations. I just wanted the human to make Dulcy an indoor-only cat so the awful things that happened to her would stop happening! It was only 2.5 hours, so I finished it, but I would not recommend this book.
Dulcy's Tale is a "story" told from the point of view of Dulcy, a cat. That is in interesting idea, but kind of flawed. The main problem with this is that it forces the cat to "talk" about his owner, and then that quickly turns into self-congratulatory drivel on the writer's part.
I listened for about an hour to this non-story until I couldn't take anymore. It's really awful. First off, it's in no way a story. It's just a bunch of mundane events (the owner going to work, a trip to the vet, etc etc) told in an equally mundane way. There is no antagonist/protagonist, no conflict, and no growth of the main characters. So in no-way a story. Secondly, the reader is REAL hard to listen to. Just this real "girly" sugar-sweet voice that makes me want to rech.
I'm a big cat lover, I love "A Streetcat Named Bob" and "Cat Daddy", but not this rubbish. I would recommend one of those books or even one of the "chicken soup" cat books long before this one.
