The World According to Bob

The World According to Bob
by James Bowen [Biography Bowen]

In this follow-up volume to A Street Cat Named Bob, we hear more of the experiences of recovering drug addict James Bowen, struggling to make a better life for himself on the streets of London, with the assistance of the crowd-pleasing cat, Bob. Unlike the first volume, which primarily focued on Bowen's early life and the first steps he took to kick the drug habit, this book takes a look at Bowen's more recent life, including the book project a friendly publishing agent suggests. Bowen has an easy, conversational style and you quickly grow to respect his efforts to improve his lot in life. But, more importantly, you also quickly grow to love Bob, the laconic orange cat who adopted James when they both needed someone to rescue them. This is a fell good book, which should appeal to cat-lovers and anyone with a sense of social justice. You can now follow Bob's adventures on Twitter and Facebook, too! -- recommended by Scott C. - Bennett Martin Public Library [ see Scott's Reviewer Profile and more of his reviews ]
