Book Description

12 July 2007

Times are changing in Pickax: a new senior centre is in the works and a production of CATS is set to delight Moose County residents; Polly Duncan is off to Paris, leaving Qwill without a companion for his apple barn concerts; and The Librarians Who Lunch are showing their Art Hats to help unite Pickax with their Lockmaster County neighbours.

Not to mention the conversion of the late Nathan Ledfield's mansion into a charitable museum! With Mr Ledfield's treasures being sold off to benefit needy children, the town is abuzz with excitement - until a mysterious death from a bee sting leaves everyone but Cool Koko in a state of confusion ...

1.0 out of 5 stars Sad decline of a fine author. 21 Aug 2007
The American reviewers of this book ask 'who wrote it? It wasn't LJB...' Well of course it was. The poor woman is 94, and nobody has the sense to tell her she's lost it - the last few books prove it. The mystery for me is why the publishers failed to find a decent ghost writer to sort this one out.

If someone else had written the book it would have had all the flavour and character that fans are looking for, it wouldn't have been so obviously and disastrously the last gasp of an author who has sadly not understood that it's better to stop while you're ahead.

Even the publishers say it's only of interest to 'die hard' fans, and it seems the die-hards are the ones who are being short-changed. It is shameful to destroy the reputation of a helpless old lady by letting her fans see her decline in print.

1.0 out of 5 stars Time to retire? 24 Sep 2007
Like the first reviewer, I have owned all bar this book and read the whole series and thoroughly enjoyed them apart from the two previous to "60 Whiskers". Because the series was obviously going downhill, I didn't buy this last book but by chance our local Mobile Library had a copy which I borrowed.

This only confirmed my opinion and I have to agree with all four previous reviews and say that I feel Mrs Braun is seriously letting herself down and should retire gracefully.

I've been an avid reader (several times each) of the twenty odd Cat Who books except for the last three. As someone who has been owned by 10 Siamese cats over the past fifty odd years, Mrs Braun captured the Siamese character and idiosyncrasies to a T. The human characters also came to life.

I am so disappointed that I cannot see myself buying any new book in this series.

1.0 out of 5 stars The printers messed up 2 Feb 2010
If you look here on Amazon, you will find out that there should be 192 pages to this story. My book ends very abruptly high up on page 182. Didn't anyone notice? Very sloppy work by the publishers and editors.

Nothing much happens and I cannot believe his reaction to his girlfriend's reactions. No-one would react like that after such a long-term relationship.

Such a shame.

By blunote
I must first off say that I love the "Cat Who" books, having stumbled across one a few years ago and was delighted with it as the writer drew me into the story and of course that had me hooked! I have went on to read all of the "Cat Who" books and have purchased all saved for the 14 Tales... and the Cat with Two Tales..... I was sorely disappointed with this book rightly so as it has been pointed out it did not flow... capture my attention and missing were some of the regular characters which while I know they can't always be there it seemed a one sided book with not enough characters, then the shock ending of Polly -not that she died tho that might of been a better ending, but it was totally out of character and I am speaking of the writer here. I felt the same sense of shock when the character Elizabeth was killed.
After about the first three chapter I wondered if someone else was writing this book because it just didn't have the feel of Lilian Jackson Braun. I enjoy and like her style of writing as it completely draws me into the stories and lives of those in the cities of Pickax, Lockmaster and Brr... to name but a few. Upon finishing this book I was left with a sense of what happened here, who wrote this????? And I made my mind up NOT to buy the next one til I saw/checked it out of the library- Then realized I don't have that option, I live in Scotland now and the libraries here don't carry many American authors ... so if I want to continue with musings and mysteries of Qwill and KoKo I must buy the book! I did noticed that has the current book listed,"The Cat who Smelled Smoke".... due out in April of 2008. Now do I buy it and become even more disappointed if this book continues in the same vein as "The Cat Who had 60 Whiskers" or re-read (which I do anyway) my copies of her earlier books and be happy with the quality that is there?

1.0 out of 5 stars I am amazed that it is so bad! 17 Aug 2007
I cannot honestly beleive that this is written by Lilian herself. The book is repetetive, no storyline, no character details and hardly any of the regulars act within their usual character.
Its almost a form of jottings written in precis format. That, together with it being double spaced typing & repetetive narrows the book down to almost quarter of the reading material.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 12 May 2010
I love these books, so much so that I read them again and again. A few were missing from my collection and this was one of them. I've just read them all again from start to finish and I have to agree with other reviewers that I found this particular one odd. There wasn't the good gripping storyline and those that seemed to give some promise tailed off into nowhere. What happened to Jerome? The Polly thing was strange and so was the barn with no real outcome. I feel that the ending was omitted. I hope there will be another one in the series to try up the loose ends.
