I'm always a bit leery of the books that are collections of cat stories. I'm a huge cat lover, and some of the novels are among my favorite books (namely Dewey, Homer, Cat Daddy, and A Street Cat Named Bob), but I really hate the short stories that go: "person adopts cat, person loves cat, cat dies due largely to owner's cluelessness and negligence, former owner mourns cat". I mean c'mon, there is no reason to tell a story like that.
But I loved the original "Dewey" story so much that I had to take a chance on this.
Sure enough, there are a number of the stories like I mention above *sigh*, but there are some good ones mixed in there as well. I really enjoyed "Christmas Cat" for example, and a few others, and the surprise was that thrown in there, in between the other stories, are some new anecdotes about Dewey (and Vicki), which I really enjoyed hearing about.
So overall, I'm happy that I got this book, and listened to it. It's not near as good as the original Dewey book, not even close, but as far as the "collection of short cat stories" books, it's above average.
