Book Review: The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa

“My story will be over soon. But it’s not something to be sad about.Remembering those who went ahead. Remembering those who will follow after. And someday, we will meet all those people again, out beyond the horizon”

The premise is simple, Nana (Cat) is a road trip with his beloved owner Satori. Satoru is keen to visit his three childhood friends and Nana doesn’t know why and Satoru won’t say. Well, It doesn’t matter as Nana gets to sit beside with Satoru in front of seat his silver van.

The reason I read this book was its premise seems interesting to me as I have myself a cat. Her name is Oy. So I wanted to see how is a story about a cat and his owner. And I enjoyed this book as many things in this book I can personally relate.

The big appeal for me was along with normal narrative, the cat also narrates a few chapters. And we get to see the world through his eyes. It was a unique idea, but Nana does the best job describing his owner behaviour and the world he lives in. It makes you wonder if your cat does or thinks the same about you or not. There are many amazing scenes shown through cat eyes.

Satori is very fond of his cat and great guy along with his friends. The story follows along as stars and his visit his friends. And we get to see how each friend as made in past and their past adventures. While meeting them start and nana also do adventures of their own. The story is very engaging from start. And you turn page after page to see what happens next. If you like cats, you should definitely read this book.
