Oh my....what a (beautiful? disturbing? sad?) ending! Review to come.

"Reviewed for the "Reviews from Depth of Time" Marathon."

This book was recommended to me by Clare Bell, author of Ratha's Creature and the Ratha series. She recommended it to me because of it's likeness to the Warriors series by Erin Hunter, which is my favorite series of. all. time. It is like the Warriors series in many ways, it's like a much more realistic version of the Warriors series. Realistic as in more focus on the 'm

Solo's Journey by Joy Smith Aiken

A few days ago, to take a break from the laptop, I picked up Solo's Journey. Intending to sample the first few chapters, I found myself drawn in to the story of Solo, a feral kit who loses his mother and has to find his own way in the feral cat colony. I don't usually read other cat fantasy books, since I write the Ratha series, and I like to keep my slate clean, so to speak.

I picked up Solo out of curiosity, but ended up devouring it in one evening. Gulping book

I loved this book so much when I was a girl! I read it countless times, reliving the drama of Solo's story and pretending I, too, was a cat - ha! I also remember feeling sad for my tame, domestic cats, wishing they could go join Solo's quorum and be free. Instead, I had to settle for trying to talk to them using the glossary in the back of the book. As a girl, I couldn't find a copy in any local bookstore, and since these were the days before the internet and the ease of finding out-of-print boo ...more
This is my all time favourite book, one I have not been able to track down on ebook (if you know where I can purchase it please message me). I have a copy with a torn cover and the pages are threatening to fall out, but I have loved this story since my first read in my teen years, and is the only book that I have read several times and enjoyed every time.

It's a tale about a cat who is born a stray, and ends up becoming a leader. Its a beautiful tale, and it's a shame this author never wrote any
I picked this book up at an 'exchange your old books for a new one left behind by other readers' event at the library. To be honest, I only chose this one because there didn't seem to be anything better. The cover (while pretty in a way) made it seem like a really cliché, really childish novel. I'm very glad I did take it with me because it turned out to be the best read this summer!

Solo's Journey is a book about cats, and specifically about a cat - Solo. In the novel we meet Solo as a young kit

Really good book about cats :)
Not exactly a cat person I approached this book without any great expectations... I was pleasantly surprised.

Maybe it's not a great work of fiction but it is a a very good read. You can just sit back and enjoy... a summer's day in the garden book. I loved it.
Eines meiner Lieblingsbücher als Jugendliche. Über die Reise und das Überlegen einer Gruppe wild lebender Hauskatzen.
