EP082: Travels With My Cats

By Mike Resnick.
Read by Stephen Eley

That night I was faced with a major decision. I didn’t want to read a book called Travels With My Cats by a woman called Miss, but I’d spent my last nickel on it — well, the last until my allowance came due again next week — and I’d read all my other books so often you could almost see the eyetracks all over them.

So I picked it up without much enthusiasm, and read the first page, and then the next — and suddenly I was transported to Kenya Colony and Siam and the Amazon. Miss Priscilla Wallace had a way of describing things that made me wish I was there, and when I finished a section I felt like I’d been there.


Rated PG. This product may be too disillusioning for young children.

I liked this story.  Good emotional content as I've come to expect from Mr. Resnick.  I liked the budding romance between these two socially-awkward individuals and the analogy of escapism through books worked very well.  From the title I was kind of dreading this, but the story itself overcame that quite nicely.

I was a little bit surprised that the raccoon had any interesting in tearing the place apart other than finding food, so that seemed more like a plot element than an actual possibility.  But I don't know much about raccoons so I could be wrong on that.
