    Story
    "Lightweight escapism"

    I've listened to many of these entertaining little stories about the detective Siamese cat belonging to Jim Qwilleran, the modest millionaire journalist, mainly because I love the whimsy and the voice of the narrator, George Guidall.

    If you don't know them, start at the beginning of the series and find out how "Qwill", the crime reporter from Chicago, inherited a fortune from a forgotten relative and moved to Pickax, "north of everywhere". The stories aren't profound but provide a delightful interlude in between more serious stuff. George Guidall, the narrator, is the perfect choice for Qwill and he does a great job with the other voices too.

    Story
    "The smart cat strikes again."

    The smart cat, Koko, and his delicate friend, Yum Yum, and his human "servant " Mr Q ( the owner of the cats and one of the richest people in the area ) solve yet another group of crimes. Another good story, so don't try to reinvent the wheel?

    "Predictable"
    Would you try another book written by Lillian Jackson Braun or narrated by George Guidall?

    I have read quite a few of "The cat who..." books now. They are comfortable because of the characters and vivid descriptions. The narration was excellent. I will not rush to listen to any further stories though.


    Has The Cat Who Dropped a Bombshell put you off other books in this genre?

    I am not put off books in this genre though any others involving animals will have to be exceptional.
