Sometimes you read a book and when you finish it you think. Did I really just read that? That’s how I feel now I have finished this book, which is partly about ETCs (Evil Talking Cats) and a retired librarian. And yes, it really is mental!

It reminded me a little bit of Terry Pratchett’s books. The writing style is whimsical and humorous, sometimes just plain odd. It certainly does not take itself seriously and I definitely enjoyed it, but somehow I wish there had been a bit more substance to the plot. At times it just seemed a little too whimsical and the end did not really work for me. However, overall it was a fun read.

I would recommend this book if you like fantastically whimsical books and you do not mind talking cats!

4 out of 7 stars
