5.0 out of 5 stars A subtle novel, 21 Nov. 2013

This review is from: In a Cat's Eye (Kindle Edition)
This book reminds me a lot of the gentler Steinbeck novels, mainly for the well realized setting among the poorer residents of a small town boarding house. The characters are beautifully drawn, all with their problems, angers and kindnesses. Willy is a hugely likeable narrator. As other people have said, his voice is as moving as the narrator of Curious Incident. I got really anxious when he seemed to being taken in by ... well, read it and see ... and when the police were interviewing him. Willy suspects that all is not as it seems in the apparent suicide of a girl he his in love with downstairs. With the Colonel as his somewhat vague and peculiar instructor he tries to investigate. The cat is the only witness to what happened and obviously isn't in a position to say, but is there an image of the murderer (if any) lingering in the cat's eye for Willy to see?
A well plotted mystery with a mixture of sadness and humour. I loved it.
Highly recommended.
