Review: The Cat Who Could Read Backwards
The Cat Who...series by Lilian Jackson Braun has been on Mt. TBR for so long that it was time for me to check it out by reading The Cat Who Could Read Backwards.
James Qwilleran was once a top reporter who is trying to make his way back into journalism. In order to do so he takes a position covering Art for the Fluxion. Qwilleran rents a basement apartment from G. B. Montclemens, the Fluxion's despised art critique and his quirky Siamese cat "Koko". When Montclemens is found murdered Qwilleran and Koko team up to solve the mystery.
While I didn't love this book, it was a quick, cozy read. The characters are what made the book for me, especially Koko. His antics were always quite amusing.
