Format: Paperback
At only about 30 pages of text and about 30 wonderful illustrations it's not brilliant value [...] but it's marvellous.
de Bernieres book is a tale of a man who collects the labels from tins of cat food. Not a marvellous premise although anyone who has read his previous books will understand how his captivating style can enrapture and delight.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough although I do think it is a little pricy.

I do not generally read stories by unfamiliar writers.But those illustrations told me to read.And my! what a lovable story. It'll make you think and laugh and smile and feel sad.
It starts with a boy who lived "when there was electric light but no television" and who grows into a ordinary man with a passion for collecting catfood 'labels'.This love which is for him greater than anything else in the world,which turns into an obsession and... A delightful human character presented with equally good prose.

It has a lovely light touch, and is very amusing. Will cheer anyone's day up.

Although I had read reviews saying that it was slender etc, I was suprised that it was such a slight volume even though it cost as much as an 'ordinary' paperback. I wouldn't say that the production is that special, I have a feeling that the spine will crack if I open it out.

That said, good for Bernieres if he is the one profiting, I just hope the publisher isn't making a killing at his expense.

Not only the story is great but when the book was delivered I found a pretty postcard with a handwritten note from the bookshop, which I loved. Wonderful product and lovely attention to detail from the seller. Very happy with my purchase!
