Publisher's Summary

Varjak Paw is a Mesopotamian Blue kitten. He lives high up in an old house on a hill. He's never left home, but then his grandfather tells him about the Way - a secret martial art for cats.

Now Varjak must use the Way to survive in a city full of dangerous dogs, cat gangs and, strangest of all the mysterious vanishings.

Varjak is the cat's pyjamas.

Where does Varjak Paw rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top twenty, yes indeed.

What other book might you compare Varjak Paw to, and why?

Haven't read anything like it, not being a cat lover, but I'd say it has a vague ring of Disney's The Aristocats about it

What does Andrew Sachs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Mr Sachs brings a smooth rich telling of a wonderfully written story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Beautiful and witty, it sounds like a classic

Marvellous!

My daughter and I loved this book and listened to it several times. Total escapism, beautifully narrated. The characters were brilliant and this story will be talked about for years in our house.

Good but weird narrating😀😄😊😌😚

I read the book and I loved it. However, I found the narrator's voice a little bit strange. He pronounced lots of the words differently from me.
