    "A Funny Book for Us Cat Lovers"

    THE CATS OF SALISBURY ROAD was a really fun audiobook especially for cat people. This was a great cat drama with cool characters. It was humorous and it made me chuckle several times while listening. These cats have awesome personalities. Stan, Leslie, Martin, Hammerhead and others plus a little metaphysical time travel made for a good time. I love when one of the tortoise shells yells "He knows Krav Maga, he's military, man. Run."

    I'm glad this is book one and I look forward to more from this series. I like Tom Slemen's writing.

    Nicholas Patrella did an outstanding job narrating. His character voices were great. I think he made a super neat book more enjoyable. He was very entertaining and in fact, I'll probably listen to this again.

    I also love the cover illustration.

    Story
    "The Secret Life of Cats"

    This is a funny take on the life of cats. It wasn't laugh out loud funny, but most cat lovers will appreciate the various cat stereotypes presented, along with the various other creatures who share their world. Think roaches, rats, and dogs...and of course humans. Teens and older children would probably enjoy this audiobook, but there are references to sex that parents might not want presented to younger children. I would probably rate this PG-13.

    The narration is good, and Mr.Patrella does an admirable job differentiating his voice for the various cats personified..

    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

    This is a cute book for cat lovers. I can picture a pack of cats sitting around telling "tall tails" or is it "tall tales?" Yes, I can see the different class of felines and them all acting as if humans are all inferior. Quite a fun listen.

    The narration was was good, I loved the individual cat personalities that were brought to life.

    Story
    "Overall a lot of fun to listen to!"
    Would you listen to The Cats of Salisbury Road again? Why?

    Yes, they were fun stories with interesting takes on love and relationships between pets and their owners from the perspective of cats. The characters were all interesting and unique.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters and their relationships to each other.


    What does Nicholas Patrella bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The range of character voices were great. He didn't just give them a voice, he gave them each individual personalities.


    Any additional comments?

    One star off for random swears. I typically don't mind if it fits the story but sometimes it seemed out of place and kind of took me out of the story at times. Otherwise, it was great and I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next!

    "Not what I expected"

    BOOK REVIEW.....
    The story just did nothing for me. I couldn't even finish listen to it. I thought it would be funny but it wasn't.

    AUDIO REVIEW......
    I found the narrator to be truly awful at doing voices.

    "This is no "loser with a fishy breath, too.""
    Any additional comments?

    What is it with cats? They can be cute and cuddly, but more often show that scruffy, dustbin diving, sarcastic, self obsessed image - and are still adorable.
    This oh-too-short book introduces the reader to a number of reprobates who hang out in Richmond Road, which is not in the upmarket part of town. Nicholas Patrella gives everyone a distinctive voice, gleefully increasing the fun already inherent in the written word.

    Brilliant characters every one. Should be a five star rating only it ended so unexpectedly, I felt bereft. What happened next? I hope that there are more ...

    Story
    "A good one for cat fans!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really enjoyed the cockroach oddly enough! but they were all great.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    When stan 'uses' krav maga :D
    I also enjoyed the trip to the park because it illustrated real emotion when the cats have to face a busy road!


    Any additional comments?

    As a cat lover I found this a good and fun book, each cat having their own character, personality and 'class'.

    I thought the introduction of the characters at the beginning was a little rushed with a lot of characters introduced at once but you slowly learn who is who.
    The story seems very relevant to true cats and their thoughts are how you imagine them to be and the relation with their humans!
    Some funny one liners and great narration.

    I will definitely listen to this again and look forward to hearing more!
