    There is no denying the appeal of talking cats to anyone even as half as much a cat lady lad as me, though i m not entirely sure i d be happy with what they would tell meIn parts, this is as fun as you might expect Ex Librarian, Alec Charlesworth has had dealings with ETCs Evil Talking Cats before Cat Out of Hell and when a gorgeous little white ginger kitten turns up outside his house, he is suspicious how best to trick said kitten into revealing its possible demonic side Well, with crossword puzzles, tv gameshows, and films with surprising twists of course, anything to p...

    Lynne Truss, I implore you never stop writing books about evil talking cats Or ETCs, to use the acronym preferred by retired librarian Alec Charlesworth and would be actor Will Wiggy Caton Pines Some time after the events of Cat Out of Hell, Alec receives a rather odd research request from one Thigmo Taxis he is engaged to find out whether there is any evidence connecting Dr Johnson s famous cat Hodge with the first Tahiti expedition of Captain Cook But, by Alec s own admission, this is not exactly, or not necessarily, where the story begins There are also reports of abominations occurring in a churchyard in Bromley something he refers to as the fracas , which happens in a local branch of Poundland and the appearance of an utterly adorable, and also possibly demonic, kitten named Tetty The story that follows delves into the past of the ETCs who are much less evil this time, with one notable exception via the secret history of the London Lunar Society and the nautical exploits of a certain Mr Timkins Wiggy makes a reappearance as does his awful screenwriting , and Alec s dry, incredulous, terribly British narration is a constant delight In case the rating doesn t indicate this strongly enough, The Lunar Cats is an ABSOLUTE JOY It s possibly even funnier and charming than its predecessor I wonder if that s because Cat Out...

    Sometimes you read a book and when you finish it you think Did I really just read that That s how I feel now I have finished this book, which is partly about ETCs Evil Talking Cats and a retired librarian And yes, it really is mental It reminded me a little bit of Terry Pratchett s books The writing style is whimsical and humorous, sometimes just plain odd It certainly does not take itself seriously and I definitely enjoyed it, but somehow I wish ther...

    I enjoyed The Lunar Cats Lynne Truss is a very funny writer who has genuine erudition beneath the humour an the combination works well here The Lunar Cats follows on from Cat Out Of Hell, but it works fine as a stand alone book The set up is silly but engaging There are some cats who are highly intelligent and capable of speech Some are plain evil and in league with Beelzebub, others are near immortal and are members of The Lunar Cats, a Learned Society formed in the enlightenment and Truss derives a lot of genuine humour from a bunch of cats conducting themselves like eighteenth century gentlemen The plotis narrated by Alec, a mild mannered retired librarian who gets caught up in all this It is enjoyably silly, involving an evil talking kitten, an evil stolen Tahitian idol, appointments with Beelzebub and so on and the battle by Alec and The Lunar Cats to thwart them It is amiable, readable fun.There is also a good deal here about the voyages...

    For my full review a brilliant and bizarre imagination Lynne Truss has the world was first introduced to her Evil Talking Cats back in 2014 with Cat Out Of Hell, and to my delight and surprise, she has returned two years later with The Lunar Cats, with some very promising signs of a franchise in the brewing This is that rare kind of book that you never knew you wanted but once you ve read it, you don t know what you did without it I have listened to the Radio 4 adaptation of Cat Out Of Hell repeatedly and have various tracts of the dialogue verbatim I had never expected a sequel and am so glad that when one did arrive, it did not disappoint.One can imagine that the narrator, kindly retired librarian Alec Charlesworth, might be hoping for a quiet life since his last adventure with the ETCs his dim witted ally Wiggy prefers that they use the acronym , but if he was then he was out of luck He and Wiggy have lived on tenterhooks, regularly checking in that the other is alive, each the only one who has any awareness or indeed reason to believe in the ghastly events which saw off the Captain and Roger at the end of the last book But then a series of events begin to unfurl Alec is attacked in Poundland by a woman who smells of stew and an incredibly adorabl...

    Not too sure I could explain what I just read but it was enjoyable once I got over the fact that this book was about a whole cat world with evil talking cats and cat scientists making up the lunar society Once I went with it I liked it.

    A very entertaining book for those who love quirky librarians, cats and British humour.Loved reading it and I apologise to the neighbours for scaring them with my laughter

    So, despite what Goodreads is telling you, this book is a sequel to Cat Out of Hell This book will make a whole lot sense if you read that book first and several plot points will have of an impact on you if you read that book first While this was an enjoyable book, I think it fell just slightly short of the first book in the series In this book, Alec Charlesworth with the most excellent dog...

    This is the first book I ve read in a day in a while, and I am very glad of it.It s quickly paced, incredibly easy to read, creepy in spots, sad, does an incredible job of juggling multiple timelines, and is sim...

    I listened to the audiobook Mike Grady did a fine job of narration The story, however, was less enjoyable than the first book, Cat Out Of Hell.
