Amy’s Pick For A Great Read – Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale
I just finished ‘Homer’s Odyssey’ and I can’t remember the last time I read a book from cover to cover in one sitting! This book intrigued me from the very start. I chose it because of my love of cats and this has made my love for felines even stronger. But really this goes way beyond a story about a cat. This story is about courage and strength. This story will make you smile, laugh, cry and amaze you.
The last thing Gwen Cooper wanted was another cat. She already had two, not to mention a phenomenally underpaying job and a recently broken heart. Then Gwen’s veterinarian called with a story about a three-week-old eyeless kitten who’d been abandoned. It was love at first sight.
Everyone warned that Homer would always be an “underachiever.” But the kitten nobody believed in quickly grew into a three-pound dynamo with a giant heart who eagerly made friends with every human who crossed his path. Homer scaled seven-foot bookcases with ease, survived being trapped alone for days after 9/11 in an apartment near the World Trade Center, and even saved Gwen’s life when he chased off an intruder who broke into their home in the middle of the night. But it was Homer’s unswerving loyalty, his infinite capacity for love, and his joy in the face of all obstacles that transformed Gwen’s life. And by the time she met the man she would marry, she realized that Homer had taught her the most valuable lesson of all: Love isn’t something you see with your eyes.
Even if you’re not a cat lover, you will get such meaning and enjoyment from this book. Please do yourself a favor and run out and get it today!
