I picked up this book on a whim as a cat lover who needed something light to read. I soon realized that the subject matter was anything but light. Nevertheless I found Boo's story compelling and finished the book ina few days.

THE ASTONISHING THING is an interesting look at family life. Told from the unique perspective of the family cat, the story is at times touching and amusing. I found the characters to be sympathetic, and I enjoyed watching them grow as the story progressed. Cat lovers especially will likely enjoy this book. Disclosure: I won a free copy of this book in a giveaway.

I was vary excited when I heard about this book But, upon reading it I was vary disappointed. I know it must have been hard to try to write from a cats perspective so I would give this book at the vary least three stars, though this book doesn't even deserve that.
