    1. Alec, a retired librarian and recent widower, is taking a break in a coastal village to get over his recent bereavement and decides to look into a laptop filled with information given to him by a fellow librarian Inside the laptop are files that tell the story of an actor called Wiggy and his acquaintance with Roger a talking cat Roger s story spans decades, years in which his supernatural longevity, intelligence and speech were down to a mysterious cat called the Captain and a Satanic cat cult [...]

    2. Lynne Truss best known for the clever punctuation guide Eats, Shoots Leaves branches out into fiction with Cat Out of Hell In Cat Out of Hell, a perspicacious talking cat named Roger meets a singularly dim witted human, Will Caton Pines, nicknamed Wiggy Wiggy s sister Jo, who had recently acquired Roger, has vanished To say any would be to spoil the fun this slender book is best approached with very little prior information However, let me say that Cat Out of Hell isn t the light hearted philos [...]

    3. Lynne Truss doesn t hate cats She just thinks they re minions of Satan.If you ve ever used the Internet, you know this is not a popular opinion In fact, the Internet was invented back in the 1980s by Al Gore or possibly by his cat expressly to share pictures of adorable kittens hanging from branches Hang in there, baby But Truss is used to speaking her mind, even if it means getting clawed to death In 2003, this British writer turned a hectoring punctuation guide into a hilarious bestseller call [...]

    4. Lynne Truss is a best selling author Eats, Shoots and Leaves so I expected to really enjoy this book described as a suspenseful and often hysterically funny adventure about a demonic cat but unfortunately I didn t find it either suspenseful or at all funny I just found it silly and really struggled to finish it in the hope it would get better It didn t.Perhaps I just wasn t in the right mood for reading this The whole book is written in a flippant almost smug tone in by the central character, Al [...]

    5. I really can t explain how I feel about this book It s too peculiar to be scary and too poignant to be funny Lynne Truss is well known for her humour, so it was probably quite overwhelming to attempt a Hammer horror novel Although initially finding the whole thing very silly and a bit pathetic, now thinking back over it I realise I enjoyed it immensely Added to which it has one of the best back cover blurbs I have ever read I love the idea of a talking cat, and although you might think it can t [...]

    6. In Cat Out of Hell, Lynne Truss better known for her best selling grammar guide Eats Shoots and Leaves has fashioned a surprisingly brilliant and original tale involving cats with supernatural powers and some seriously hapless humans Alec, an academic who is recovering from the death of his wife, is staying in a quiet cottage by the sea when he starts to make his way through a package of papers and recordings given to him by a colleague These concern the experiences of an individaul known as Wig [...]

    7. My rating 1.5 of 5 stars All of this story, remember, is based on the completely unacceptable and ludicrous premise of an evil talking cat called Roger that traveled romantically in the footsteps of Lord Byron in the 1930s and now solves cryptic crosswords torn out daily from the Telegraph I m all about dark humor and if we re being completely honest, anything involving cats so when I read numerous reviews describing this novel as such, I jumped at the chance to read it Sad to say, the humor of [...]

    8. A mock horror novella about evil cats a strange digression for Truss I enjoyed the use of a Cambridge library setting and the faux epistolary strategy of compiling disparate documents, but, overall, this is really rather silly I had been expecting the authoritative tones and narrative control of a story by M R James, the main narrator says in disappointment, a sentiment I might echo For a much better comic romp, try Truss s Tennyson s Gift instead.

    9. Cat Out Of Hell is a novel by British writer and journalist, Lynne Truss When Alec Charlesworth s beloved wife, Mary dies, he heads to a cottage on the coast of North Norfolk with their dog, Watson, to grieve privately Isolation is what he craves, but, finding he needs some mental stimulation, turns on his laptop to read an email from a library colleague of Mary s It contains several files concerning a cat called Roger, and by the end of his perusal, Alec is confused, sceptical and rather irrita [...]

    10. A fun book very well written as you would expect from Lynne Truss, and quite surprising in its content Apparently she was requested to write a horror story and although a bit tongue in cheek it is a mystery with a touch of horror and a a little weirdness on the side A very quick and entertaining read I enjoyed it very much.

    11. From the woman that brought us Eats, Shoots and Leaves comes this perfectly gramatically correct tale of a feline with a dark past, and an even darker present It is a quick read I devoured it in less than two hours, and uses a few novelty techniques in the telling movie script, transcript, descriptions of illustrations, regular narrative and an exchange of emails It starts innocently enough as a mystery a mourning widower seeks out a quiet cottage to recover from his wife s death, and delivered [...]

    12. Cat out of Hell is so far the most problematic book that I have had to review so far I thought it would be a sweet story about a talking cat, instead it was a grim story about a talking cat, well it tried to be grim, but it was mostly confusing and silly with a lot of plot holes The only part of the book that I really liked was the scenes with Watson the dog I wish that I had a dog called Watson then I also could have called out to him Come at once if convenient, Watson If inconvenient, come all [...]

    13. This book was not what I had expected, it s neither here nor there If it wanted to be horror is too bland, if it wanted to be noir it s too gross, and if it wanted to be comedy the hilarity just isn t there.The writing style is rambling at best, a deliberate choice from the author, but the why is lost on me as it doesn t enhance the reading experience, the contrary I would say And sometimes to absurd see e miaow Some digressions are useless and boring Sometimes the author gets lost describing th [...]

    14. From BBC Radio 4 Book at Bedtime By Lynne Truss Comic and chilling gothic tale about a widower and a supernatural cat

    15. Humorous horror story I enjoyed the narrative and found the story to be amusing mystery What I didn t like, was that cats were demonized, and because of that I was going to give the book 3 stars however I was pleasantly surprised by the twist towards the end of the book 4 stars Mike Nelson s installation To the Memory of HP Lovecraft

    16. I was in search of silence and tranquillity Alec, a retired librarian has recently been widowed He heads off to a coastal village in North Norfolk with his small dog Watson in search of peace But one night, while searching for mental stimulation, he opens his laptop and starts looking through a folder entitled Roger which a former colleague had sent him Inside that folder are files in which a man called Wiggy tells the story of his acquaintance with Roger a talking cat, who sounds like Vincent P [...]

    17. Creepy horror fun Yes, I realize that sounds oxymoron ish Lol Quick, chilling entertainment if you re wanting a horror mystery mash up with along with some dark chuckles and a cat who wants Daniel Craig to voice him if there s a movie version It reminded me a bit of a slightly creepy version of Mr Penumbra s 24 Hour Bookstore other books of that ilk with its various literary cultural references I found it entertaining worth my time to read Maybe a slight spoiler I must admit that it did cross my [...]

    18. I d recommend this to anyone who suspects that deep down cats really are bastards even cat lovers , likes dry British humor, and can handle extremely unlikely circumstances And enjoys elements of horror Lots of framing devices and cutesy communications, so if that s not your style, stay away As a light read with expectations of being amused, rather than edified, however, it kept my attention and I liked both Alec and Wiggy enough to overlook some gaps in logic I will note that the BACK of my cop [...]

    19. Questo librino, godibile e senza pretese, mi ha divertita e preoccupata.Divertita perch una storia di gatti parlanti, amanti della letteratura, ammaliatori e satanici ma capaci di tenerezza come Roger il protagonista non poteva lasciarmi indifferente.Preoccupata perch il nostro Rocciolo comparso dal nulla alla nostra porta, ben pasciuto e con una folta e lucidissima pelliccia sembra avere una storia e comportamenti sospettosamente simili a quelli di Roger Spero solo che sia lui il Capitano della [...]

    20. Eh, it was ok I m not a fan of the narration style and it feels like something is missing from the story Plot holes This was easy to read, but nothing really goes on, and this definately isn t a scary story The introduction definately is missing something Well, the whole book s missing something It s like it was many pages longer, but then was forced to cut it to 230 pages, so it got chopped big time.If it was free, maybe it would be worth your time, but this book definately wasn t worth my 14 I [...]

    21. Sadr aj i naslovnica su obe avali ma ke koje nisu s ovog svijeta, govore i ubijaju nisam dobila ni emociju ni horror ma ni ta, zapravo uop e nemam pojma to napisati osim da je beskrajno dosadna i na momente glupa Ovo sigurno nije jo jedna od lijepih knjigica o ivotinjama Jadne ma ke, a i pokoji pas Dvojka samo zato jer elim stati u obranu ma aka

    22. The Captain is a powerful cat that takes another cat, Roger, under his wing in Lynne Truss horror novel, Cat Out of Hell If the British critics are right, this is supposed to be a funny horror novel featuring cats who have died eight times and are in their ninth life, a life that goes on forever It s a story told by a retired librarian My opinion Don t believe everything you read on the flap of the book The summary has an error There are a few humorous lines And, the story, for a mystery reader [...]

    23. I suddenly understand all the bewildered looks Wren gives me Cat Out of Hell by Lynne Truss This book was kindly provided to me for the price of No Monies by the kind people at Random House UK Cornerstone, facilitated in this act of goodness by the almighty NetGalley I have one goal in life the acquisition of 16 cats who will happily eat my corpse in the 3 week gap between my acquiring that state and anybody noticing This fact may or may not be related to my enjoyment of this book Cat Out Of He [...]

    24. If you have ever kept a cat then it will come as no surprise that they are in fact a species of evil geniuses Cat Out of Hell is an absolutely brilliant novel that tells the story of the rise and fall of cats as masters of the world It is very difficult to write a review of this book without spoiling the story, it is framed as a mystery after all If you don t want to risk spoilers then please don t read further, simply go grab a copy of this and find out for yourself What will be clear from all [...]

    25. Ultimately, what it comes down to is you being either a cat lover or a cat hater you cannot be both I think this can be said for the whole population everyone can be slot into one or the other should they really have to chose Have you ever met someone who says, I don t know, cats are alright Exactly But, have you noticed that regardless of preference, everyone agrees on one thing Cats can be abrasive not always, but at least three to ninety times a day , stubborn to a fault and downright rude Th [...]

    26. I would give this book 6 stars if I could I just loved the concept the idea that cats were totally fed up at the loss of their powers to instantly kill, maim or hypnotise people rings so true to anyone who has ever spent any time near any cat The style of writing was engaging and intriging I put in on my Kindle at 11pm on Wednesday night and finished it by 5pm on Thursday I read it at traffic lights and in the playground waiting for the kids

    27. 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4 On a dark and freezing January night, alone in a seaside cottage, a grieving widower opens an email and finds his life transformed by the strange tale of a cat named Roger A funny, mysterious and spooky read and a frothy confection for both cat lovers and cat haters written by the author ofEats, Shoots Leaves
