Description

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa, read by George Blagden

The tender feelgood story of a man's journey around Japan with a streetcat. Translated by Philip Gabriel, a translator of Murakami. 

It's not the journey that counts but who's at your side.

Nana is on a road trip, but he is not sure where he is going. All that matters is that he can sit beside his beloved owner, Satoru, in the front seat of his silver van. Satoru is keen to visit three old friends from his youth, though Nana doesn’t know why, and Satoru won’t say. 

Set against the backdrop of Japan’s changing seasons and narrated with a rare gentleness and humour, Nana’s story explores the wonder and thrill of life’s unexpected detours. It is about the value of friendship and solitude, and knowing when to give and when to take. The Travelling Cat Chronicles has already demonstrated its power to move thousands with a message of kindness and truth. It shows, above all, how acts of love, both great and small, can transform our lives.

Un conte pour amoureux des chats

J'ai acheté ce livre en anglais et la version audio également en anglais. Le narrateur a parfaitement réussi à créer une ambiance aussi mélancolique que douce et' envoutante qui permet de se glisser dans l'histoire. Quant à l'histoire en elle même, c'est une ode aux chats, à l'amitié, l'amour et l'attachement envers un animal, mais aussi à la tristesse de la perte et la peur de l'abandon dans un road trip à travers le japon. Une histoire qui plaira aux ailurophiles.

A moving tale about life journey and being a cat

The book itself was very touching and I cried at the ending. The narrator was absolutely perfect for the book and he did an amazing job for all the characters.

Highly recommended.

What beautiful book

I'd give six stars if that was possible. I was hesitant to say the least before starting it, but thought to give it a try. I am so glad I did. I might just read it again very soon.

Yes, it is about a cat's perspective (not exclusively though), but it is so much more. It is about life and death, friendship, trust, confidence. It is one of the most beautiful books, and it did make me cry. And it made me smile.

George Blagden is by far the best reader I've ever listened to on Audible. he might have just added to the joy of the book.
