Book Review: A Street Cat named Bob by James Bowen

A Street Cat Named Bob: How One Man and His Cat Found Hope on the Streets

I bought this book after a recommendation on a friend’s blog. It said ‘uplifting, heartwarming tale’ in many reviews and this was exactly the kind of book that I wanted to be reading at the time as a couple of recent reads had been a bit heavy and depressing. And this was definitely the perfect antidote. It isn’t the most lyrical prose but it is a brilliant true story of how one cat managed to enrich the life of a nice guy down on his look. Proof that best friends don’t always have to be human. This book simply made me smile.
