The sequel to the bestselling A Street Cat Named Bob continues the remarkable adventures of James and Bob showing - through new stories - how Bob's extraordinary street wisdom has shown James the meaning of friendship, loyalty, trust - and happiness. "Since Bob had appeared, I'd made huge strides in my life. For more than a decade I'd been a homeless drug addict. I'd been lost to the world and forgotten what was important in life. Now I'd got myself back on my two feet, but as I put the past behind me, I was still stepping unsteadily into the future."

I was brought to tears in the middle of my office whilst listening to the last chapter. James mentioned a lady from Wales who lost her fight to cancer and I am proud to say I was one of her carers and that she was my reason for falling in love with these books! Every time is see Bobs face I think of her and how much she enjoyed the first book. I only wish she had got to read this one. Thank you James and Bob for sharing your story and giving hope and peace to people who truly need it.
Ps I really enjoyed this book as much as the first one.

When James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet. Yet James couldn't resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas.

When I was a carer looking after a lovely lady who I had grown to love she started reading this book and told me I must read it! She sadly passed away from lung cancer and I had forgot about this book until the film was announced, well 4 years on and I can happily say that I enjoyed every second. Thank you James and Bob for sharing your story and with it you have brought people together even through death by letting us both into your life story. I cannot wait to go watch the movie. I'm so glad this was put on here.

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Spectacles, the hilarious, creative and incredibly moving memoir from much loved comedian, writer and presenter Sue Perkins. When I began writing this book, I went home to see if my mum had kept some of my stuff. What I found was that she hadn't kept some of it. She had kept all of it - every bus ticket, postcard, school report....

I have already tried reading this book however found it rather hard to read and get my head around however this audible made it so much easier and was a good mind teaser during boring work shifts... highly recommended
