Cat out of hell by Lynne Truss
“By acclaimed storyteller Lynne Truss, author of the bestselling Eats, Shoots and Leaves, the mesmerising tale of a cat with nine lives, and a relationship as ancient as time itself and just as powerful.
The scene: a cottage on the coast on a windy evening. Inside, a room with curtains drawn. Tea has just been made. A kettle still steams. 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.”
This really is a mentally delicious book about a feline conspiracy. Did I forget to mention the homicidal cat who isn’t just evil; he is e-vile.
Cat lovers with recognize that certain look on a cats’ face when you aren’t sure if it is disdain for you or they are plotting your demise.
Roger is a great believable character for a devil worshipping, genocidal moggie. I do realize that reading this book will do nothing for feline/human relations- especially if you are already weary of the species.
Cat out of hell is a clever and funny romp that you wont forget in a hurry. I am putting it on my list of favourite books.
