What made the experience of listening to Tales My Grandcat Told Me the most enjoyable?
Sean Barrett's narration is amazing as usual but that's not all there is to this book. This book offers a collection of folk stories about cats from around the world. Each of these stories portrays bits of each culture's world views and morals which is very interesting in my opinion. All that said, I don't recommend this book for very young children as some of these stories can be quite scary or harsh for them.
What other book might you compare Tales My Grandcat Told Me to and why?
Tales of the Amber Sea: Fairy Tales of the Peoples of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. It's also a collection of folk stories about animals and people.
What about Sean Barrett’s performance did you like?
He has the ability to bring each character to life and narrate the stories in a calm yet captivating manner. I can listen to him for hours without getting bored.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
If they love cats, absolutely. This is like the audible equivalent to those wonderful comical books full of great and amusing cat pictures, but at the same time, much more classy and worth your money.
What did you like best about this story?
Sean Barrett's narration, of course. Like everything else he reads, he brings these beautiful and magical stories to life, just the way he does when he's reading a psychological thriller or work of high fantasy. I would have bought the book otherwise because CATS! however his narration made it a necessity.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The story of The Boy Who Drew Cats was haunting and definitely not the kind of cat story I had expected, but nonetheless I loved it. the image of the little boy drawing cats in an abandoned Japanese temple was rather erie.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There are lots of little well-placed humourous little remarks and comments throughout the stories, which made me laugh on a number of occasions. It was very well done, and really I could imagine my own cat telling these stories if he hadn't been desexed years ago so he had the opportunity to become a grandcat.
Any additional comments?
If you're a cat lover, you need this book! you could enjoy it on your own or even with your children.
