5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book! April 26 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
If you liked Brin's Uplift Series, you'll like this story. Man has found a way to raise the intelligence of animals and making them thinking, reasoning beings (i'm not gonna tell you how), and of course this brings on a whole new set of social problems. Read the book. It was a fun read, I read it through in only two sittings. Simon Hawke has written a humorous and entertaining tale. Catseye was a great character, callus with a wicked sence of irony. The book had me laughing out loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book today! May 19 1998

This was one of the first science fiction books I picked up off the bookshelves. It was the one that got me hooked. It's a great, entertaining blend of science fiction and fantasy starring a streetwise, one-eyed cat out to solve a murder mystery. I strongly recommend this book to any science fiction or mystery reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and magic is well explained Oct. 9 1997

This book is great. While cat books seem to be "in style" this one is different. There is an explanation for why the "cat" is able to solve mysteries, talk, etc.(I won't give that one away!) He is like his favorite detectives, Mike Hammer and Travis McGee. I hope there is a sequel to this one!!!

I've been chasing this book for a Looooong time. I would have ordered it regardless of condition.

As it is, the book was as perfect as any I've purchased in a bricks and motar store. In fact, it was in better condition than described. You guys must have better eyes than I do to have found that "crease."

The next time you have something I want, I know who I'm going to order from!

1.0 out of 5 stars Heavy-handed dud Dec 25 2005
By Austenparker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love fantasy novels. I must confess that I also love books with talking cats. And I truly love to laugh. Humorous fantasy can be hit or miss - and this novel completely missed it, for me. The plotting was a bit awkward & the narrative rather gave away the resolution of the "mystery". But what I could not abide was the heavy-handed soap-boxing of the narrator! Unbelievable! Hawke's narrator (the talking cat, for the record) would spend literally pages giving his rather distasteful philosophic disquisitions, taking away from the "humor" portion of this "humorous" fantasy. Authors like Terry Pratchett convey their subtle messages with understated verve while still managing to be outrageously funny.

The humor of Catseye Gomez was terribly obvious & more groan-worthy than grin-worthy.

If you're looking for funny, try Terry Pratchett or Robert Rankin or Tom Holt (who can be hit or miss, himself). Funny cat books? Try Tanya Huff's Keeper series.

To give Hawke his due, he is not a terrible writer stylistically, which is a saving grace & has earned the one star adorning this review.
