Wordy on Wednesday with Humphrey ~ Review of Murder Past Due
Wednesday greetings supurr furiends
Today, as mew may have already surmised Humphrey is here sharing this week's top book pick.
We know many of mew are literary kitties and love a good yarn, purrdon the pun, and yes string, yarn, twine, cord and the like are all most marvellous time wasters but if mew have free time to spare Humphrey thinks mew may enjoy this novel.
Now as the P.A. has to go to work daily to meet our demanding demands, then be at our beck and call fur the remaining hours in the day, plus all the other jobs that need doing, she doesn't have time to sit and read, so she listens [as do we] to audiobooks while she toils - she calls it multi-tasking - she's listened to audiobooks since being a small fry and finds it most enjoyable.
Offur the years she's gone from spoken wurd cassettes to CD's and finally in 2009 to the Audible App, which she says is a truly terrific invention. She also has a Kindle with a gazillion books on, waiting to be read but unless we develop some cloning tech in the secret bunker they aren't going to be read anytime soon! MOL
So anyhoo, let's get back to Humphrey top book pick.
BBHQ Purrsonal Copy
Murder Past Due is the furst novel in the Cat in the Stacks series by Miranda James.
It features a supurr smart Maine coon kitty called Diesel who rather casually assists his hooman, Charlie Harris in the solving of murders.
While we won't ruin anything by 'spoilerizing' this novel fur mew, we can say it was fun to listen too, with great narration and a good set of plot twists to keep mew listening and entertained. It's classed as a Cozy Mystery so it's basically a PG rating, thus if mew're looking fur a light read this is absolutely purrfect.
The audio version is 8 hours 46 mins long, just in case mew're were wundering how many treat breaks and naps mew can fit in between chapters! MOL
And if mew've already read it or listened to it, what did mew think?
Just so mew don't get lost with Humphrey's ratings, he made a rather nifty little diagram which he calls:
Humphrey's Rating of Murder Past Due:
The paw has spoken! MOL
What more do mew need than that, so we'll bid mew good morrow and wish mew happy reading or listening, or in fact napping with treats on the side with a splash of nip tea!
