I bought this after watching the film on TV and I'm not disappointed. Based mainly in Algiers it is the story of a highly intelligent, educated cat who has philosophical and religious discussions with the Rabbi. (He ate a parrot and for a while had the gift of speech). It is more than that however and should not be seen a book that might only be of interest to a small section of society. As well as being an entertaining book with great illustrations, it's a book that makes you think and as such is suitable for adults and older teenagers.
