Well written, with good character development and very minimal editing issues, this book grabbed me with the first sentence, and never let go. I HATED the ending, not because it was poorly crafted, but because I so badly wanted it to end differently.

I'm a sucker for well written cat-themed books, and the author portrayed the title feline with all of the character, attitude and intelligence of the real thing, along with giving her a few human emotions and motivations that cat-lovers so often att...more

'Dreamer's Cat' is a unique sci-fi novella with a suspenseful mystery packed into the fast-moving storyline.

I tore through this book, loving the dark tone and the thought-provoking ideas. I will warn that it's not an easy read as there is some disturbing content but this gave the story more weight and the impact was not lost on me. The 'hero' of the piece plunges into some very dark depths as he works to find out what's been happening to other dreamers so being inside his head was at times an u...more
Well, I don't quite know where to start with this one. Compared to other books by Stephen Leather, its completely different , and at first I couldn't be bothered with it. I put it away. Then, still intrigued, I got it out again, to read another chapter then give up in frustration. I gave it one more go, and read through to the end - I don't know whether I'd have persevered with it if I'd known the outcome, but what I can say is its weird , quite kinky , and is a total fantasy read. There are not...more

Great book, regardless of how graphic the psi-disks became, I felt the ending was a little weak and deserved a little more explaination, but loved the twist on the last page! Overall I enjoyed this book
An enjoyable book, set in a 'near' future that is recognisable and topical too I thought, with how society perceives what is entertainment and what isn't.

Good pace and well written.

Just a pity it was so short but for a book that was only £0.71 to download, this was an absolute bargain.

Encourages me to read more of Leather's books.
I really wasn't sure what I would make of this book as I don't really read sci fi but I loved it. Very different from the books Stephen leather usually writes but definately worth reading.
A credible sci fi read about the nature of imagination and reality and the overlap between the two. Raises questions about the moral values of those who market mass entertainment and how much influence they have over those who make the laws regarding access to drugs and violent images. Is this our future - or our present?

I didn't enjoy reading this book as much as I'd hoped. Half way through it got very confusing and then the ending was kind of a let down. Just personal preference I think. I did notice a lot of grammar errors and that always makes me stop and re-read. I hate that!

Interesting adventure into the sub conscious. My second of his stories and it's becoming clear he has a bit of a perverted mind, maybe I do too as I did enjoy it
Interesting story and well written, very much focused on the mind of the central character, but given the plot it couldn't really be otherwise.
Dean Owen
It's not often murder-mystery and sci-fi work well together (the only other example in my memory is Asimovs), but this book is quite, quite good.
The concept was very good and quite well thought through. The narration somehow seemed to lack the dept I was expecting.
First book I read on my Kindle. Liked it a lot. Clever little twist at the end.

As much as I love Stephen Leathers books, I couldn't get in to this at all.
A real page turner. Not for the faint of heart though!
