Review: 99 Reasons to Hate Cats

Book Summary

99 Reasons to Hate Cats is for cat lovers - and those who manage to just peacefully coexist. You'll find yourself and your cat (or cats) in the pages of this fun, funny cartoon book. It shows the many ways our feline friends can make us smile, laugh and be driven a little crazy.
All of the reasons are inspired by daily life with real cats. Short biographies of each of the felines who inspired the art are included in the back of the book.
Each of the 99 reasons are amusingly illustrated with original cartoon art. The images are simple, expressive and appeal to young and old alike. Illustrations are shown in color on your Kindle app (on iPhone, iPad and Android), Kindle Fire and the Amazon Cloud Reader.


99 Reasons to Hate Cats: Cartoons for Cat Lovers by Tom Briscoe  is a short cartoon book - because of that it's pretty difficult to do my standard 500+ word review so please enjoy this short one instead!

First of all, yes I am a massive cat lover! 

This book is easy to read and amusing. While it isn't anything special or amazing, laugh out loud comedy it does bring a smile to my face. It points out some of the funny things cats do. Perhaps this could have been improved by turning the single picture into a short multiple panel page set up for each sentence/reason - similar to other humorous animals books. It loaded fine on my kindle and I appreciated the use of colour in the background to make the pictures more interesting.

I found this book for free on Amazon and, to be honest, I don't think I would buy it, just because the wealth of animal, especially cat, related material online is more laugh out loud, free and easy to access.
