I am not an expert in anything, but just a person with access to the internet who is trying to learn and make sense of the world! A massive thank you to HarperCollins UK, Harper Fiction and Tandem Collective UK for my early copy of Cat Lady. This is a book that tries humour but its not a funny book because there is too much tragedy behind it. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I enjoyed the fact that the protagonist was an older lady - in her 40s but she wasn't relatable to me in any way, shape, or form.

In the book she attends a support group for people whose pets have died as she is so scared of Pigeon dying but obviously doesn't tell them her pet is still alive. Leaving aside some really explicit stuff just thrown in there for shock value (at one point early on I was very worried that this woman was going to sexually abuse her cat), it's a story about a woman who has quite a tough, lonely upbringing who feels like she needs to conform to certain standards. DAWN O’PORTER lives in Los Angeles with her husband Chris, her two boys Art and Valentine, two cats Myrtle and Boo and two dogs; Puffin and Meatloaf. Mia really goes through the motions in this, and there are other characters that I loved to hate, and times I wanted to scream at them.

For example one minute we are told that the en-suite bedroom used to be Tristan and Belinda’s bedroom. I loved laughing with/at some of the characters and I was emotionally destroyed* as I watched some of the characters' lives unravel. OK so she loves her cat Pigeon more than her husband Tristan, is irritated by most of her colleagues, has no friends, and has to put up with her husband’s awful ex-wife Belinda for the sake of her stepson Oliver - but whose life is perfect? I’m glad others did enjoy it and get benefit from it but for me this was just too far in what should have been a very heart wrenching story of falling to rock bottom and building yourself back up.

Dawn is obsessed with vintage clothing and recently set up her own clothing label, BOB (she also has a bob…) --This text refers to the hardcover edition. It was hilarious and made me laugh out loud, it made me angry, it made me sad, it made me cry and made me feel happy. When a shocking event shatters the conventional life she’s been so careful to build, Mia is faced with a choice. I am a cat lady, I’ve experienced the joy and grief of owning a pet, and l love this authors very unique writing style.

I think a lot of people worry about something happening to their fur babies, which obviously Mia really struggles with that. The moral of the story is, no one's life is perfect, which is told in both a humourous and poignant way.
