FREE READER í DOC 旅猫リポート ↠ 9780857524195 Ë [Reading] ➷ 旅猫リポート By Hiro Arikawa – It's not the journey that counts but who's at your sideNana a cat is devoted to Satoru his owner So when Satoru decides to go on a roadtrip one day to find him a new home NanY understands a long held secret about his much loved owner and his heart begins to breakNarrated in turns by Nana and by his owner this funny uplifting heartrending story of a cat is nothing if not profoundly human 35 stars I wasn’t going to read this book I’m not a cat person I’m not a dog person either In all honesty I’m just not an animal person although I do find kittens and puppies to be adorable I hope all my pet loving friends won’t judge me it’s just the way I am But I couldn’t ignore all of the wonderful reviews that talked about what a lovely story this was and I’m glad I didn’t skip it A lonely man Satoru adopts a stray cat a feisty sometimes sarcastic sometimes sweet and always loyal cat We know this because Nana as he is named is the narrator of this story The two connect or rather I should say Nana connects with Satoru when Satoru cares for him after he is hit by a car Satoru was already taken with Nana leaving food as Nana camped out by Satoru silver van We later discover that he loved a different cat when he was a young boy And thus begins their friendship Five years later they embark on a journey across Japan as Satoru is seeking a new home for Nana On their travels it is eventually revealed why Satoru is trying to find a new home for his beloved cat It is through this journey that we come to know Satoru and through his visits with friends from his childhood and his aunt we learn things haven’t always been easy for him It’s a uick read that is simply written sentimental sweet and sad The writing felt a little too simplistic at times but perhaps it’s because it’s a translation You don’t have to be a cat lover to feel the heart in this story about companionship compassion acceptance loss and how to say goodbyeI received an advanced copy of this book from Berkeley through NetGalley Thanks Elisha

It's not the journey that counts but who's at your sideNana a cat is devoted to Satoru his owner So when Satoru decides to go on a roadtrip one day to find him a new home Nana is perplexed They visit Satoru's old fr Humans who think we don't understand them are the stupid ones Perfect Absolutely perfectHiro Arikawa is a masterful storyteller I loved every word I laughed I cried I was an emotional whirlwind in the best way possible Satoru a young businessman attempts to befriend a young feral cat with a crooked tail After a few weeks the two work towards a mutual understanding Satoru leaves crunchies for Nana and sometimes only sometimes Nana allows Satoru to pet himThen something awful happens Nana is struck by a car Somebody help me But that was idiotic Nobody was going to help a strayThen I remembered the man who came every night to leave me crunchies Maybe he could help Satoru hears Nana's painful yowls and rushes to help the injured cat And thus begins one of the greatest human feline friendships to have ever formed Only five years later Satoru packs everything into his car including Nana and sets off to find Nana a new home Bewildered but determined Nana knows one thing is for certain no one will keep him from his humanWow seriously wow this book was good I read it from cover to cover in a single afternoon and I'm itching for a re read alreadyHiro Arikawa did an amazing job of writing from a cat's perspective The combination of Nana's hilarious derision of humans Humans always underestimate our language skills Just cause they can read and write there's no need to act all high and mighty and the author's attention to detail regarding Nana's thoughts and habits I yawned back Sorry Zero interest Noriko just didn't get it A wide box spoils all the fun; it offers none of the charms of being inside a box really brought this book to life I don't know how to explain it other than Nana felt like a real cat to me As Satoru attempts to find Nana a new home he spends time with childhood friends Inevitably they begin to reminisce and the audience is treated with sweet poignant and hilarious flashbacks often with sarcastic commentary courtesy of NanaOne of my favorite moments is how Satoru obtained Hatchi his first cat I don't want to spoil it but it involved elementary kids running away climbing a school building leaning precariously over the roof and this uote Satoru turned to Kosuke with a grave expression on his face Kosuke could you like kind of straddle the railing I honestly don't think this book could possibly be better This is the kind of book that everyone should read at least once in their lifetimes Because it was a very special thing to have your own cat in your home With thanks to Berkley Publishing for an arc in exchange for an honest reviewAll uotes are from an uncorrected proof and are subject to change upon final publicationYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

旅猫リポートIends from his school days and early youth His friends may have untidy emotional lives but they are all animal lovers and they also wonder why Satoru is trying to give his beloved cat away Until the day Nana suddenl The story begins with a stray cat who enjoys being free and is very happy with his life His favorite place to sleep is on top of a parked silver van that belongs to a young man named Satoru Satoru likes the cat and brings him ‘crunchies’ from time to time Eventually the cat suffers an injury and needs some help “By the time I reached the silver van dawn was breaking I really couldn’t take another step This is it I thought I cried out at the top of my lungs Owwowwwww” Luckily Satoru comes to his rescue takes him in as his pet and a beautiful relationship begins to develop between the two He names the cat Nana and they become best friendsYears later Satoru tells Nana that they’re going on a road trip together He has to find a new home for Nana and it’s unknown exactly why On the trip they visit each of Satoru’s friends around Japan and it’s like a trip down memory lane “It seemed Satoru wanted me to go with him somewhere He opened the door of my basket and I got in without making a fuss For the five years I’d lived with him I’d always been a sensible cat For instance even when he took me to my bête noire the vet I didn’t make a racket” When it’s time for Nana to stay at his new home it’s something he’s not willing to accept In Nana’s eyes Satoru is his home and the only one he’s willing to acceptThe story started out slow and seemed too simple at first I had some issues with the dialoguenarration in the beginning and had a hard time getting into it I realized that I just needed to slow down and once I settled in it was hard to put the book down It was around the last half of the book that literally had me captivated with all the beautiful scenery and adventures they took together As the story unfolded I had so many emotions It’s been awhile since I’ve had to walk away from a book multiple times to bawl my eyes out Other times I found Nana hilarious as he reminded me of my old wise outdoor cat Rambo How Nana talks is how I imagine the animals in my life think As a pet owner in general I reflected greatly when reading this story as it reminded me of the unconditional love we have for each otherOverall this story is truly written beautifully and I thought the epilogue wrapped it up perfectly Honestly I don’t think you have to be a cat lover to enjoy this book I’d recommend it to anyone Also I was very excited to learn that the book has been adapted to film and can’t wait to watch it45I’d like to thank Elisha at Berkley Publishing Group and the author Hiro Arikawa for sharing this book with me in exchange for an honest reviewYou can also see this review
