Summary

When you are an inoffensive retired librarian with bitter personal experience of Evil Talking Cats, do you rescue a kitten from the cold on a December night? Do you follow up news items about cats digging in graveyards? Do you inquire into long-ago cats who voyaged around the world with Captain Cook? Well, yes. If you are Alec Charlesworth, that is precisely what you do - with unexpected and terrifying consequences.

Sequel and...

I saw that this book was related to another, but as it wasn't listed as a series, I figured it wasn't a direct sequel... it most definitely is. You *can* follow it, but only because it recaps the first book essentially spoiling that for you should you be interested in it all.

Unfortunately, I also found the book kind of annoying. I realise it's very popular so I may be alone in this, but it kind of seems like a cat book written by a dog person. It makes lots of jokes supporting the 'cats really couldn't care less about you' stereotype, which I assume almost anyone who's actually lived with a cat knows not to be true. Basing humour on untruths kind of makes jokes fall flat for me. Wanted to like it, but unfortunately didn't.

Quirky well written entertaining

Continuation of cat put of hell which is even better than that first part. Integrated story line that has you believing in talking evil cats!! Excellent historical material on the endeavour trip , cook banks and samuel johnson
