How can I put this... if you read this entire book and don't cry, YOU HAVE NO SOUL. Maybe.

I wanted to rate this book higher as it really did strike a chord with me by the end, but it meandered quite a bit and offered many long segments about the author's health, personal life, etc., that kept making me ask myself "umm, why is she sharing this with me/us?"

Dewey sounds like quite the lovable character, and of course being a cat lover I enjoyed the stories about him.

I think the idea of a library cat is wonderful, although I really wonder how many libraries out there would allow it in these days of super-sensitivity to what everyone else wants. The closest I've ever seen is a used bookstore with a resident cat.

Dewey's book is worth a read if only to honor his memory. :)
