5.0 out of 5 stars Bob and James 3 July 2014
By Jayrose
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a heart strings pulling story. Didn't want to put it down once I started reading it, so I read it in one sitting. I am not really a cat lover but Bob is an extraordinary "person" cat and clearly loves James as much as James loves him. I wish them both all the luck in the world and look forward to reading more of their adventures in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very inspiring 24 July 2014
By Anne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A wonderful tribute to the power of friendship between pet and owner. The need to car for Bob was the start of James road to recovery. This is a lesson to us all to care more for each other as well as the animals, and support those who are struggling daily to get by in a hard, seemingly dead end life.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL BOOK! 1 Aug. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Once again, another fabulous Bob book, this one especially adapted for children from The World According to Bob. Every child in every school should read the story of James and Bob - their journey from despair on the streets to finding hope and a place in society again will give youngsters a good insight into how it's always possible to turn your life around as well as showing them about the joys of having an animal to love. They don't come much better than this.

FOR THE LOVE OF BOB....JAMES BOWEN A MAN WHO HAS A GOOD HEART AND WANTS TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK, AND A VERY SPECIAL CAT CALLED BOB WHO HAS SAVED A SOUL, ONE AMONG MILLIONS OF LOST SOULS THAT SAD TO SAY FIND THEMSELVES IN A PLACE THAT SOON SUCKS OUT THE LIFE-FORCE ,GOOD INTENTION..AND ANY AMBITION YOU ONCE HAD DEEP INSIDE. LIKE THE FIRST BOOK WHICH I ALSO ENJOYED ...THE GENERAL DISSATISFACTION OF JAMES, HIS CAT...WITH LIFE ON THE STREETS LONDON...SHOUTS OUT THE SAME QUESTION OVER AND OVER..SO STATING THE OBVIOUS...LEAVE THAT PLACE! I KNOW THE CRY IS 'BUT LOOK HOW DICK WHITTINGTON HAS TURNED OUT', BUT WHY? LONDON IS A NICE DAY OUT, YOU CAN DO IT ON THE CHEAP,BUT UNLESS YOU HAVE BIG BUCKS TO STAY..GET YOURSELF TO THE NEAREST RAIL OR COACH STATION ! I KNOW THIS WILL UPSET SOME BUT SELLING THE BIG ISSUE IN LONDON !!! STANDING ON THOSE STREETS WITH THOSE HORRIBLE PEOPLE...GOOD LUCK TO JAMES AND HIS CAT BUT IF YOU HAVE MADE ENOUGH CASH TAKE YOURSELF SOMEWHERE NICE THEY ARE OUT THE CAPITAL BUT THEY DO EXIST.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the love of Bob. 8 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I gave 4 stars because all bits from other previous books James Bowen had written and nothing there was new however I still did enjoy the book, it makes me laugh and is very thought provoking. This book is the kind of book that will appeal to anyone who likes animals, it makes you understand how animals heal and help in many ways. Thank you for the 3 most enjoyable books about Bob I have ever read cannot wait for the next one.

Because of eye problems I have not been able to read more than a few lines for some time. Now I have my Kindle and I have just finished my first book in years 'For the Love of Bob'. I felt as if James was telling me all about his life with Bob personally, Bobs antics had me laughing out loud at the bus stop. The events are beautifully put together making a wonderful story. I have 2 more Bob books to read and I am looking forward to reading more of their adventures together. Well done James, I am so pleased you and Bob found each other. May you care for each other for many a year to come, I know you will always love each other. Perhaps there will even be more Bob books in the future, you have a great way with words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 7 Nov. 2014
Format:Paperback
This brilliant book eliminates the darker details of James' former life featured in 'The World According to Bob' - making it both suitable and educating for older children. It is also very moving, and has some very comical moments with Bob's mischievousness.. Well done James & Bob...
