Best friends James Bowen and street cat Bob have been on a remarkable journey together. In the years since their story ended in Bob: No Ordinary Cat, James, with Bob's help, has begun to find his way in the world. Along with the adventures and the fun there have been tough times, too, but through moments of real danger and sometimes illness Bob has always been there as James' protector and guardian angel. For the Love of Bob is the incredible story of James and Bob's life-saving friendship, and the lessons James has learnt from his street-wise cat.

... in writing style for my taste, but nevertheless a marvellous story about an astonishing feline and his man. One contradiction strikes me though; James speaks about his struggle with what he refers to as 'drugs', and how he finally left them behind, but mentions several times that he still drinks alcohol, apparently not considering it to be a drug. Given the important role which his addiction plays in this story, I think this should be made clearer: drug addiction is drug addiction, whether the drug concerned is legal and socially sanctioned or not.
I have enjoyed the books "A Street Cat Named Bob" and "The World According to Bob". This book is a compilation of parts of those two books directly. Had I realized that, I would not have ordered it.
I don't know how it would have been as a stand alone.
"I LOVE BOB!!!!"
This was great. It's just a shorter version of all the fun stuff that James and Bob got up to. I thought there would be some stories that I hadn't heard but I didn't care. I love these stories so much :)
I haven't read the book 'A street cat named bin' and was a bit disappointed when I didn't find it in audible (maybe it's just my terrible searching skills). But this book is (what I have imagined as) the story of Bob and James and it couldn't be any sweeter.
Pathetic, lovely, striking
Definitely Bob, he is the creator of this audiobook.
I am sorry but I do not remember.
All animal lovers like me should definitely enjoy listening to this audiobook.
