James writes honestly about the life he led when he was a recovering heroin addict, about the battles he's had to fight, about the loneliness of life on the streets and about how meeting Bob helped him turn his life around. I have nothing but admiration for him - it takes guts to beat an addiction. It takes a special sort of bravery and determination to pull yourself back up when you are alone and down. When one dreary follows another, when it's hard to see any future.
James wasn't looking for any reward when he took Bob in, he couldn't possibly have known what the future would bring. Now, because of his own act of kindness, James has hope and a new life. It's a lovely heartwarming book, full of humour as well as courage and determination. I really hope it will help a lot of people be more understanding.
Reading their story not only gave insight to their background but was very uplifting and heart warming as well.
Good luck to them both.
I haved not enjoyed a book as much as this for a long, long time.
It is primarily a happy book, so refreshing in these days of ever depressing doom and gloom.
Simply obtain, sit down, and read.
Well, this is not Irwin Shaw, or Leo Tolstoy, or Allan Bennet, but James' warm and genuine style and you will love it!
Taking us through his own maze of doubts, joy, disbelief, laugh, love and hope, James proved there is no need to wait for their "ninth life", if people want to change their current one.
Well done to you, James and to Bob, your lovely cat!

A lovely story which will make me look and think twice about people who live on the streets in London. I'm a cat lover and can see how a cat can give a human being so much comfort.Published 15 days ago by Pam's always shopping
