Overview

History has known many famous cats - Garfield, Mr Bigglesworth, Simon's Cat, the Aristocats, the Cheshire cat and the Keyboard Cat on YouTube.

In recent years these feline things have replaced man's best friend as the most popular pet in the U.S. while the Ancient Egyptians once worshipped them as gods. This was a mistake and I'm here to tell you why.

Man vs Cat is the story of one man, one woman and the six cats that changed their lives forever. To the woman they brought love and affection, to the man they brought sleepless nights, fear, paranoia and even ruined his jigsaw. Need I say more?

About the Author

David Brown could be considered a fantasy fanatic, especially since he has spent the last 10 years developing a 47,000-year history for his fictional world of Elenchera. When converting his obsession into literary form, David commits himself to a rigorous writing and editing process before his work can meet his approval. Combined with the critical eye of his wife and a BA Hons in History and English, David's dedication leads him to his goal of inspiring readers through heartfelt stories and characters.

Although David is inspired primarily by fantasy fiction, he also finds his muse in the form of anime, world cinema, history, and biographies. His own books, Fezariu's Epiphany and A World Apart, and the in-progress Ansel's Remorse and The Stars Beneath the Parapets combine aspects from worlds both old and new into compelling tales of a world not soon forgotten.

David himself certainly does not lack a spirit of adventure; in fact, he left his job in 2007 in order to spend a month travelling. Second only to meeting and marrying his wife, David counts this as one of the most amazing experiences of his life.

Let me begin by saying that for most of my life, I saw myself as a "dog" person. Cats were okay, but I just never could figure them out. Until my daughter got her very first kitten. We now have fourteen cats (most of them have been tamed by my daughter and me), and I could relate to this book in a very real way. In fact, I realized that my fourteen cats don't wreak as much havoc as the six in this book! This book is written in a wonderfully humorous style, and it is so fun to get into the actual psyche of the cats. They have conversations and write letters--not too bad, right? And I can so sympathize with the man in this story. I think I feel that I have a better understanding of my cats--or at least, I hope I do! If you love cats, I promise you that you will like this book. There are plenty of references to popular culture and even a throwback to the classics and history. After all, these cats are pretty smart, and it's nice to know that sometimes they are willing to share their intelligence with us. There are no major problems with profanity, and you can rest assured that there are no sexual situations. I think even your kids may like this. I have considered showing it to my daughter! I know she would get a kick out of it. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite This is the story of Mr. B and Mrs. B with their six cats that changed and rule their lives without end. Somehow Mr. B is convinced a feline revolution is in the making; he is surrounded with feelings of distrust, a number of sleepless nights and jigsaw destruction, whilst Mrs. B is surrounded by love and fondness. Written by Donna and David M. Brown, Man vs Cat is a hilarious journey of a couple that is owned by their cats. I love cats but keeping six felines in the house? No. Two is my limit. At least that way I consider myself as a responsible master who is making sure that the cat has at least one feline friend. Man vs Cat; the title seems to imply that author David M. Brown is a prisoner in his own house because of his cats. That does not seem to be case as I detected a proud fatherly tone in his writing from the start, until the part where the cats have their own meeting that is. On the other hand, Donna Brown, aka Mrs. B, is just a patient mother that can tolerate her feline children. She able to produce Zen-like calmness again and again whenever there is trouble concerning the cats.  I would have to say Mr. Kain is my favorite. He is like the gentleman version of cat in the house. I’m quite fond of Bilbo and Frodo too. All in all, a hilarious and entertaining read for cat lovers.
