"A street cat named Bob" will be a good friend for your reading time, especially if you're a cat person. I would never dare to say that this book is a masterpiece of literature. It's power is the simplicity. That's simplicity that strucks you while reading it. I'm talking about the simplicity of finding yourself homeless and living on the streets of London, consequently starting doing drugs and getting addicted to them. I'm also talking about the simplicity of finding a friend, someone who cares about you and you have care about and take care of.
For some reason I'm pretty sure you won't be able to appreciate this book if you've never had a cat and you're not used to reading all those gestures and signs, those tail moves and looks that a cat features.
Why should you read this? Because it's a great non-fiction book and a story that will remind you how quickly things can get awful if you lose control and how they can get awesome if you just make an effort. This is also a good reading if you're an English learner since it features everyday life vocabulary and many new words you can learn but is very fluent as well.
A very easy read, yet a very engaging book. This book is not only about Bob the cat, but how a person recovered from his own downfall.
