Making the Cat Laugh
Format: Paperback|Change
Price:£8.70+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime


on 1 November 2000
Lynne Truss (before Bridget Jones & her ilk) offers us a guide to the life of a cat-'owning' modern single woman. Truss takes the decision to work from home and also finds herself single. She regales us with her struggles with procrastination, single banannas, unclear cooking instructions, & the ungrateful (and occasionally homicidal) nature of cats. I love this book and have read it more than once; it made me laugh aloud all the way through.

I saw a review for this in the Sunday paper and downloaded a copy at once. So entertaining and well written that I read it at one
fell swoop. I know that it is fiction but I did find some bits to be a tad sad and I so much wanted a happy ending. Not even a cat
lady but I totally loved this book. There are times when something lightweight hits the spot, thank you Lynne Truss.

I frequently laughed aloud at Ms Truss's anecdotes. Great book to pick up from time to time without having to remember the plot so far or who's who. Therefore ideal to have on app on my phone.

Am glad she made the cat laugh cos she didn't make me smile much! Got a little bored part way through (but then did the same with eats shoots and leaves) but picked up the pace a bit towards the end.

It would have been five stars if I was a native from the UK. But this way some of the stories went over my head. So the 4 stars say nothing about the quality - rather about my ineptitude.

I am a great fan of Lynne Truss's writing, but this really didn't tick the boxes. I gave up after about 30 pages as I just found it heavy weather and really not funny. Sorry if you disagree!

This book made me laugh out loud when I first read it and I'm glad now to have it on the kindle and to be able to re-read it. It's a good book to dip into, as it's a collection of articles.

I've not read it but this lady grabs my attention. The title is alluring due to indicating a cat 🐱 with a sense of humour.
