Fi-na-lly! I’ve meant to do this review for a long time already, but I kept forgetting about it!
I won the book with a contest at Mythreemoggies in February. I had no idea what to expect, so I was surprised that since page one I couldn’t stop reading. I think I finished it in a week — which is fast for me.
A Touching Story
The book is written by Susan Finden from England. It’s written from her point of view and Casper’s point of view. It’s about Susan’s life, her life with cats, her ups and downs in life, and Casper, the main character of the book.
She got Casper out of a rescue centre, giving him another chance at life. Nothing special you would think, right? Until Susan finds out that he likes to sit in the waiting room at her doctor, in a drug-store and eventually she hears that Casper is taking the bus through the city they live in. Worried as she is, she tried everything to keep Casper in, but that’s not easy as it looks like, and the people on the bus like Casper’s presence.
Susan gives up and decides to let Casper do his own thing, but always keeping an eye out, knowing that Casper likes everything on wheels. Casper’s commuting habits made him famous in the entire world. receiving mails from all over the world: America, Canada, belgium and so on. Entering a new adventure together.
I don’t want to spoil too much. But for people who have cats or other pets, the story will be recognizable, touching, heartbreaking and heartwarming. The story is beautiful. It makes you curious, longing for more. I would totally recommend this book for anyone who loves cats, or who just likes books about animals and people’s life. As the book is not only about Casper, but also about Susan, her life, and her adventures and struggles.
I think the book is very well written. Easy, simple, but written with a passion you only see in animal lovers. It made me cry, it made me smile and it made me laugh out loud. If I didn’t have other books on my planning, I would read it again.
