Book Review: The Guest Cat by Takashi Hiraide

It’s been to long since I’ve read and actual book and whilst waiting for colleagues at the station this drew me into the book store. 

A small volume but a wonderful novel The Guest Catis a book that covers the life of a writer in Japan, his wife and their adventures with the neighbours. 

Much more than a book about a cat or the impacts of one on ones life, this book is simply beautiful. 

It is exquisitely written with such a wonderful tone and a beautiful story. 

You really do feel part of the story and are left enlightened and enthralled by there minor adventures. 

If you like me haven’t picked up a book for a while, try this one.  IMG_9731-1.JPG

    It is such a lovely book, so charming and thoughtful – and much more than a book about a cat.
