    Just not as good

    I have read all of the other Cat Who books and LOVED most of them. I am finding that her last few are not nearly as good as the earlier ones though. They are getting shorter and do not involve enough of the locals. Also, she does not have the cats playing nearly big enough parts. I realize that Lilian is gettin up in years, and I would really miss her books if she were to quit writing, but if she can't keep up the pace of the earlier ones, its time to call it quits. Out of a 250 page book, only about 50 pages play in the mystery. I only wish there was a loyal and devoted fan that she could pass the reins on to to continue the series.

    I miss my Moose County friends.....

    I miss the friends I have made reading the Cat Who books over the years. What a shame that the last two books have only allowed these wonderful folks to pop in from time to time for brief cameo appearances. Even the cats were in the background this time. I am puzzled why so many odd, shallow characters are being brought into the stories when there is no 'history' to them. Thelma and Dickie Bird were just stupid--I'm still scratching my head over them. Whoever is assisting in the writing of these books needs to sit down and really study the magic that Ms. Braun has created over the years. So many fun things have been left out! It's as if the ghost writer has a list of things to mention, but he doesn't know how they've been woven into the storyline over the years. I even came upon Mr. Q. being referred to as 'Quill.' Everyone knows about the QW in Qwilleran! It was sheer drudgery finishing this book as well as last one when, in the past, I have devoured them in one day. I just don't think I will bother the next time.
