My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I bought this book because it was on sale via Kindle. As soon as I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down. The story centered around this James Bowen, a young man who messed up his life by getting hooked on heroin. He was on methadone by the time he met Bob, an injured, ginger cat whom James later takes care of.
Methadone doesn’t make you high, but like heroine, it is an addictive drug. James spent his days busking for money, and, by his own accounts he said that he felt that he was invisible. He claimed that he felt that nobody ever noticed him. However, upon meeting Bob, all of that changed. James felt responsible for another living being; he slowly got off methadone; he stopped busking, and he was no longer invisible.
This book is a real good feel-good book. And what’s even more awesome, the cat doesn’t die. No, it’s not a spoiler. It’s an incentive for you to pick up the book and read it.
The book will never win literary awards. In fact, the author repeats himself a lot. But, what that hey, the story is just worth it.
