Cat Out of Hell by Lynne Truss

Leave a comment

Cat Out of HellThe author of Eats, Shoots & Leaves has penned this wicked little novel about a widower librarian who discovers that his late wife’s cat can talk. The story just gets stranger from there, with a sharp turn toward demonic.

Alec Charlesworth is grieving over the mysterious death of his wife, Mary, when he opens an email attachment that contains several inexplicable files, all of them involving Mary’s cat, Roger. As it turns out, Roger is not just any cat, and he is the reason Mary is dead.

This straightforward novel is less than 200 pages long, making it ideal for reading in one sitting. The mild suspense kept me turning the pages, while the light horror tinged with dry humor kept me thoroughly entertained. Make no mistake: this is a very funny book, but the humor, like the horror, is understated.
