Has anybody of you read the novel "Cleo" by Helen Brown yet? I would really like to know whether it is a real cat novel or more a family novel which also has a cat in it? So I would love to hear what you think.
Just bought two copies, one for me and one for a friend. I'll start reading it when I finish my current book, probably in a day or so. What I gather from the back cover is it is a based-on-true or actual-true accounting of a family who's lives were chronicled in a time-line alongside their ownership/companionship with their cat, Cleo. It is hailed as the next "Marley and Me" so I think it will be a mix of highs and lows experienced by the family and their cat, Cleo over the years of Cleo's life ... whose ultimate message is one of love for pets and a finer understanding of the human-family/pet achieved in retrospect and hopes that this novel will help open the eyes of other pet owners who possibly haven't achieved that level of a connection with a pet.
