Description

Mia hasn't had a great life and she often attends support groups even though she hasn't got the problem that they relate to. It feels like this book has been written by a computer algorithm (time to add a joke here, and now some sex, and now some tears) and not sense-checked by a human, or a cat. But I did, in one night because I got glued to it and it was such a relaxing read and there were various topics I could relate to. Dawn’s journalism has appeared in multiple publications and she was the monthly columnist for Glamour magazine.

I've found with other Dawn O'Porter novels that her characters aren't fleshed out very well and it's still the case in this novel. There were so many instances when reading when I was simply teetering between cringe, disbelief, and also shock at the standard of publishing. She's a good wife to her husband Tristan, a doting stepmother, she slips on her suit for work each morning like a new skin. I am a cat lady, I’ve experienced the joy and grief of owning a pet, and l love this authors very unique writing style. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.Tristan, her husband is irritating and very annoying and her high powered boss is ignorant and selfish but someone who also lives a life different to their inner feelings.

Fresh, funny and for anyone who’s ever felt astray, CAT LADY will help you belong – because a woman always lands on her feet. I didn’t like Mia at all: an example of how she thinks: “She is reading a copy of Cosmo, which makes me assume she has an STD. We learn about her challenging childhood and how Pigeon saved her from herself in her teens but much as I love my cats, I know that humans need other humans. It made me upset to read how a lot of the people in the pet bereavement group had came across people who just did not understand what it means to lose a pet.It was heading for 1-star, which is rare for me, but I’ll admit I did like the ending, which redeemed it a little - but not enough to recommend it. Dawn is the bestselling author of The Cows and the Richard and Judy Book Club pick So Lucky, and her latest non-fiction title Life in Pieces was also a Sunday Times bestseller. Trying to get back into reading and this book kept me wanting to continue and found it funny in spots, also relatable if you have a cat you love.

Leaving aside some really explicit stuff just thrown in there for shock value (at one point early on I was very worried that this woman was going to sexually abuse her cat), it's a story about a woman who has quite a tough, lonely upbringing who feels like she needs to conform to certain standards. There's a brief mention of covid but then next minute she's in a hospital environment with filthy hands and no mention of any mask wearing or the fact you still can't really visit people in hospital!

Biography: DAWN O'PORTER lives in Los Angeles with her husband Chris, her two boys Art and Valentine, cats Myrtle and Boo. She’s a good wife to her husband Tristan, a doting stepmother, she slips on her suit for work each morning like a new skin. Enjoyed this book is was funny in parts and the cat lady and her relationship and life problems and was quite dark in parts. designs dresses for Joanie Clothing, LOVES Instagram, and has a large following on her Patreon blog. The story skips along – and has the standard SHOCK moment that I’ve come to expect from Dawn’s fiction books.
