Reviews - What do customers think about Diaries of a Cultured Cat?
A great tale and a great read. Nov 4, 2006
"Diaries Of A Cultured Cat" by Brigitte Downey is the delightful story of an Irish cat who winds up in London, living in the family of a brain surgeon, who is married to an interior decorator. The story is a romantic romp of a comedy, couched in the realities of the legacies of hatred that mark the 21st century. Ms Downey takes the pain of tragedy, from IRA bombings, the Czech StB, heartbreak and betrayal, and weaves them in a cycle of reconciliation that brings hope for a new beginning to the characters and to the reader. We get the story first hand from Lucia, the cultured cat of Kerry, who is in the position to observe everyone in the story. And we meet some wonderful characters, both human and feline. Ms Downey has drawn on her extensive experience to make us appreciate their life situations, even as we laugh at their unique styles. Far more than an enjoyable read, "Diaries Of A Cultured Cat" leaves the reader with an appreciation of the complex web of life we share.
