1.0 out of 5 stars Not much to give paws for thought....., 18 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Street Cat Named Bob: How one man and his cat found hope on the streets (Kindle Edition)
Dull, badly written, over-long, barely perceptible editing. Bob sounds like a great cat, but this is a newspaper article, not a book. Started off sympathetic to James's plight but by the end was wishing he'd stop making excuses and get a job. Enough to turn me into a Daily Mail reader.

The writer's name is James - not 'John'. Hopefully your comments will be more sympathetic, understanding and empathetic when you actually get round to reading the book.

Unfortunately for me, I have actually read the book. But thanks for your insight. I found it really helpful. Sorry you didn't feel the same about my post.

Fine - you've read the book. Problem is, you have no critical judgement. Stick to zumba.

I think James makes remarkably light of his plight. What would lead someone to end up homeless and addicted to heroin ? There are many possibilities and none of them great.Think about it and exercise your capacity for empathy and compassion.

I agree with G.M. Reading you two bicker over these reviews is far more entertaining than the book.
