If you could sum up Tabby Cat Tales in three words, what would they be?
Beautiful Cat Story: Beautiful, as in it is the kind of story that shows us all that pets can enrich our lives across the entire spectrum of our lives, from childhood to adulthood and on to very advanced ages. Pets bring something special to their owners.
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the authorial decision to tell the story from the viewpoint, and voice, of the cat. This act of personalization helps the listener (reader) to come closer to the story and enjoy it more fully than if it were told in the voice of the people involved in the story.
What about Pilar Uribe’s performance did you like?
Pilar's performance was incredible. I had expected a Latin American, Spanish accent, since Pilar is a lovely Latin American name. After listening to the sample, I knew that I was wrong about Pilar's vocal range. She gave an enthusiastic performance, using her voice to add emotional content to the words that she was reading. You were able to feel the emotional response to the events in the cat's life. Joy, happiness, pain, lose, bewilderment, doubt, it was all there. A superb performance.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No, I wasn't moved to tears. What I did do was experience what it must have been like when the 3 legged cat is facing his death by shotgun at the hands of Grandfather. I had internally rationalised the logic of "putting down" (killing) a 3 legged cat, but the outcome when Grandfather came back made me happy, because it was completely unexpected for me.
Any additional comments?
Yes, I had read the book already, some time before, so I was curious how it would be as an audiobook. I must say that the project was a complete success. Pilar did an outstanding job as narrator. She is an incredible vocal talent, with an ability to create emotion and elicit a response from the listener. I would recommend her to anyone. The written story came alive in my mind as I listened to it, thanks to her enthusiasm throughout the book.

Any additional comments?
I have listened and been entertained by the animal stories written by this author.Unfortunately,this one is so sad...it seems just like a laundry list of cats that died terrible deaths in this one family.Becky Corwin-Adams does a splendid job of reading the list.Sadly I fear that yet another Tabby has bit the dust while I typed this...yes it's that sad."I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast or MalarHouse dot com"
