Here’s the thing: I have contractual deadlines to meet, I’m in the middle of end-of-term marking, and there are about a million work-related things I’m supposed to be reading. So what I’m saying is that my every waking second is pretty much accounted for. But after I bought your book, I opened it to glance at the (really quite moving) introduction, and the next thing I knew, I was blasting through the whole thing.
I grew up with dogs, and have only become a cat owner in the last few years. But I was cackling with recognition as I read your pieces (the bits about staring at nothing struck a particular chord with the rest of the household, too). And, perhaps inevitably, Siegfried tried to interpose himself between the Kindle and me, and I wound up reading the second half with His Royal Highness in my arms. All of which seems fitting.
Bottom line: I thoroughly enjoyed your book. Well done, sir.
😀 So glad you enjoyed it! As for the rest of you reading this, what are you waiting for? Click the cover! Buy the book!
