    Story

    Karen Maitland is, in my opinion, one of the most impressive and satisfyingly one of the most best informed of writers there is, she writes informatively intelligently and knowledgeably and puts her obtained knowledge into impressive and great stories. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it was aided by the great reading and interpretational spin placed in the story by David Thorpe who's brilliant accents brought every character to life. This is a great historical story, full of wit and wickedness, taking you on a journey from Portugal to Iceland. There is a unique aura around Karen Maitland's stories which although, factual in their telling, have a unique mystic to them giving them a fantastical ambience and I loved this story for all of the above reasons. This book is worth every penny of your money.

    Story

    I would like to say this whole story is the most peculiar and I would congratulate Lynne Truss on the genious of her imagination. I could not really tell from reading the initial introduction of this book what the whole content would be and yet it was funny, sad, hideous in some places, (especially the description of the library room), and I would say that although the story initially, for me, appeared to be a lighthearted story about a speaking cat, is a very sinister and dark murder that you know would just make a great television film. Mike Grady narrates the book well and is clear and easy on the ear. Cat Out of Hell is a brilliant title and just about describes the book perfectly, however, I did not really take it as seriously as the content of the book is. This book is not for pussycats, but I would highly recommend it if you are looking for something dark and satanic.

    A cottage on the coast on a windy evening. Under a pool of yellow light, two figures face each other across a kitchen table. A man and a cat. The story about to be related is so unusual yet so terrifyingly plausible that it demands to be told in a single sitting. The man clears his throat, and leans forward, expectant. 'Shall we begin?' says the cat....

  • "Classic brilliance."

    Overall

    I listened to this book after watching the film as I was intrigued by the story and guessed that there would be more to a book than the film. But wow, was I wrong, the book and film could really be two completely different stories, but with the same concept. The book is brilliantly written and takes place in 1950's America. The naration is lovely, almost radio like, which adds to the ambience of the story, its dramatic and scary and takes up speed along the way. The ending is most unexpected, but fits more in with the story book than the film. I don't want to give much of the story away in my review in fear of putting the reader off because of the vast differences between film and book, but suffice to say, it is worth reading and I promise you will enjoy every word of it. If you haven't seen the film already, listen to the book first.

    Frances had been picturing her lodgers in purely mercenary terms - as something like two great waddling shillings. But this, she thought, was what it really meant to have paying guests: this odd, unintimate proximity, this rather peeled-back moment, where the only thing between herself and a naked Mrs Barber was a few feet of kitchen and a thin scullery door. An image sprang into her head: that round flesh, crimsoning in the heat.

Alone and rudderless in New York, he is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. He is tormented by an unbearable longing for his mother, and down the years clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, strangely captivating painting that ultimately draws him into the criminal underworld.

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes tales are rightly ranked among the seminal works of mystery and detective fiction. Included in this collection are all four full-length Holmes novels and more than forty short masterpieces - from the inaugural adventure A Study in Scarlet to timeless favorites like "The Speckled Band" and more. At the center of each stands the iconic figure of Holmes - brilliant, eccentric, and capable of amazing feats of deductive reasoning.

Hitler barely recognises his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman. People certainly recognise him, albeit as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen.
