Description

The phenomenal number one best seller about best friends James and Bob. Now a major motion picture starring Luke Treadaway.

Shortlisted for: Popular Non-Fiction Book of the Year - Specsavers National Book Awards 2012

When James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet. Yet James couldn't resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas. Soon the two were inseparable and their diverse, comic and occasionally dangerous adventures would transform both their lives, slowly healing the scars of each other's troubled pasts. A Street Cat Named Bob is a moving and uplifting story that will touch the heart of anyone who hears it.

A great story for cat people and animal lovers

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to any of my friends who have ever had a connection with an animal. This is a delightful and simple story of two beings finding each other and affecting each others' lives

What did you like best about this story?

It took me a little while to get used to the narrator, the style was simple and casual. I enjoyed the imagery of Bob perched atop shoulders, travelling with him to work unperturbed.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This story made me smile a lot, recollecting pets long since past. I have a soft spot for ginger cats

Good listen

A nicely told story about James and Bob, the ginger cat. The book describes, through a great narration (well done Kris Milnes), how Bob came up to James' life and the positive impact it had on James, leading him to a new perspective on life and helping him recover from his addiction issues.
I found the book very enjoyable and captivating. Surely a book cat lovers will love.

I am a total cat lover and adore stories about them. I had seen James and Bob on YouTube and just loved the story. I can't wait to read the next book James has written about Bob. Big kudos to James for turning his life around with the love and support of a lovely ginger kitty :)

Schnurrige Geschichte :-)

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

Ja, auf jeden Fall. Ich würde ihm sagen, dass es in der Geschichte darum geht, wie Tiere einem auch ohne Worte weiterhelfen. Eine schöne Geschichte um eine Freundschaft zwischen Mensch und Tier.

Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

Das Happy End. Zweimal war er verzweifelt, weil die Katze weggelaufen ist und zweimal hat er sie wieder gefunden.

Haben Sie vorher schon ein Hörbuch mit Kris Milnes gehört? Wie würden Sie beide vergleichen?

Nein, habe ich nicht.

Gab es im Hörbuch einen Moment, der Sie ganz besonders berührt hat?

Ja, dass James gemerkt hat, dass es auch Menschen in seinem Leben gibt/gab, die ihm geholfen hätten, wenn sie von seinem Elend gewusst hätten.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Es ist eine Mischung aus der Erzählung aus dem Leben der Katze und eine Erzählung aus der Geschichte von James Bowen. Man sieht auch mal, wie schwer es Menschen haben, die auf der Straße leben und wie schwer es für diese ist, in ein normales Leben zurückzufinden. Nach der Geschichte sieht man Straßenmusiker & Co. vielleicht auch mit etwas anderen Augen. Ich freue mich sehr für James Bowen und seine Katze, dass er aus dem Elend herausgefunden hat und auch, dass er durch seine Katze und sich selbst zu Geld gekommen ist.

Nice book and story, good voice to listen to i.m.o

Würden Sie A Street Cat Named Bob noch mal anhören? Warum?

Yes because i like the story.

Welcher Moment von A Street Cat Named Bob ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

When James met Bob.

Haben Sie vorher schon ein Hörbuch mit Kris Milnes gehört? Wie würden Sie beide vergleichen?

No i've never heard KrisMilnes his voice before, i think he's got a nice voice.

Hätten Sie das Hörbuch am liebsten in einem Rutsch durchgehört?

Yes

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

If you like stories with animals, like cats, dogs then this is the book for you. Although it's not only about Bob the Cat, it's also about James regaining his trust in people in general with the help of Bob the Cat and getting to terms with his past as a drug addict.
