My Review: 

It’s not often that a book comes around that I can completely identify with and laugh at at the same time. This is one of the few.

The premise of this book is hilarious. A woman sails to the Caribbean after leaving her married lover and writes letters to her cat. What can get better than that? I don’t think anything really. I was laughing my butt off throughout most of the book. It was quirky, quirky and everything offbeat that I love. I also could identify with talking to pets or inanimate objects in times of stress. I have often asked Orange Comfy Chair what I should read next (he’s always right). I mean who doesn’t have an object or pet that represents all that is secure and comforting?

I needed something to make me laugh. I have been battling writer’s block for the last couple of weeks and I needed something to cheer me up. The chuckles I got from reading this book were more than helpful. The humor was exactly my type. It was witty and intelligent. As absurd as the idea of a woman writing letters to her cat may seem, it really makes for quite the interesting read. I also loved the illustrations. They were lovely and enhanced the book to such an amazing degree.

This is a book that I will keep around because someday I am going to need a laugh and I think the book will always be a failsafe.
