This was my first "The Cat Who..." book and I enjoyed it and am glad I purchased and listened to it. The narrator did a wonderful job in conveying the story so that the characters were distinguishable and entertaining. It's not a particularly challenging mystery and the pace is leisurely, but the characters (even the cats) have depth and believability. Pass some pleasant hours, get some chuckles and let an excellent narrator tell you a story while you are driving or cleaning or weeding your garden. Or just sitting on the porch to relax.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I have listened to several books in this series and enjoyed them tremendously so had high hopes for this one. The story starts off well slowly unwinds to a quite unbelievable ending - it felt like a filler-book, one to fill in between other, better ones. I would not recommend it.
What could Lilian Jackson Braun have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Resolved some of the issues that are brought into the story - too many loose ends.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Visiting the shop enroute to the mountains - the description of the interior was amazing and the conversation between the 2 men sooo funny, I laughed out loud.
Could you see The Cat Who Moved a Mountain being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
Not unless you brought in some more answers along the way. You would need a good, mature actor for the main role, one with a dry sense of humour - a low-key character. As for the cats ...
Any additional comments?
I desperately wanted to like this book - there were some really good story lines but they just fizzled out. Far too much time spent on interior decor!
Charming, funny and gentle, the Cat Who books never fail to entertain. George Guidall's narration is perfect for the books, soft and smoothing as a warm bath on a cold night.
There were a couple on minor glitches in the editing around chapter 16 but not significant enough to spoil the story.
