    I found this book utterly inspiring I read it with a tear in my eye and a lump in my throat on the day I got it I simply had to finish it before I went to sleepThe book follows on from 'A street cat named Bob' and continues the story about James' life with the cat who just refused to leave James' side The book is harrowing at times and gives a real insight into life 'on the streets' and the survival of some of society's most vulnerable peopleThere are smiles too and Bob is of course adorable Nevertheless James is an absolute inspiration He makes no effort to hide the fact that this book is 'ghost' written but his story again moved me to tears

    Tell me who can resist this ginger cat wearing a scarf? I know I can't I actually bought this book a few months ago and forgot that I had it somehow got mixed in with a pile of already read books in my book room Yeah yeah I have a whole room in my house just for books with shelves lining the walls and back to back in the middle of the room Things get lost in there even with most of it being in alphabetical orderI'm glad this book didn't stay hidden for too long I really don't get much reading time during this cycle of work often I just drag myself home sleep then get up and get ready to do it sll over again Even if I was snatching just s chapter before my eyes closed I was lucky Still I had this afternoon off so I cleaned the house can't read in a dirty house and settled inWhat I found was the same love I discovered in the first book I still can't understand how anyone can think this guy doesn't care for his cat; he checks him over plays with him and most importantly he loves him As James says no cat does what it doesn't want to do it's against their nature Bob seems like one loved and spoiled kitty to me ;I enjoyed the writing very much This book isn't just about Bob but James too and their relationship There are some hard hitting issues here especially when that man collapses in James' apartment building This isn't a story of rainbows and butterflies but of true struggle and human emotionMy only wish was that the book had pictures of Bob in scarves Other than that go out and snag yourself a copy of this book or the first you won't be disappointed

    Fantastic No matter who you are everyone can enjoy the story about James and Bob As I sit here reading this book about Bob the cat one of my cats Duncan sits on the bottom of my recliner happily purring while I scratch his back with my toes Even other cats love James and Bob And why not After becoming a parent to Bob in the previous book A Street Cat Named Bob How One Man and His Cat Found Hope on the Streets James now realizes that 'Parenthood is all about anxiety whether it is fretting over his health watching out for him when we are on the streets and simply making sure he is warm and well fed 'Parenthood also brings with it a lot of laughter' There are many many moments of never a dull moment Hilarious and touching it also has some serious hair raising moments too I'm saving the next in this series A Gift from Bob How a Street Cat Helped One Man Learn the Meaning of Christmas to read this Christmas season I absolutely love James and Bob

    18 chapters epilogue and illustrations It was such an amazing book just like the A Street Cat Named Bob I hope James writes a third book You don't have to read the first book to understand what is going on in this one In 2007 James was a recovering heroin addict when he found an injured tom cat Noticing that the cat is without an owner he took him home and nursed him back to health Since then James and Bob the cat are the best friends In his second book James tells about his experience working on the streets in London and how he and Bob meets nice and not so nice people having fun together and caring for each other And what I like from this book is that James not only shares the good Bob in his life with the readers but also writes about the bad ex drug addict physical mental health homelessness issuesJames of course also tells how he was approached by Ms Pachnos an literary agent It was interesting what was going on when he and Bob wrote A Street Cat Named Bob

    You do not need to have read the first book to read this book however you should because they are both amazing I like how honest this book is nothing is sugarcoated there was times where I had to have a good cry I won't give anything away here but there is some really eye opening parts in this book in relation to drug usage It's so good to see that James has put all this behind himThe world according to Bob is a very easy read the sort of book that you can easily read a few pages of and then pick up later and not be lost at all Likewise it also reads well if you do sit and read a huge chunk of it at once and if you have the spare time you will probably struggle to put it downI loved hearing about Bob in this book He is truly a fascinating cat who made me laugh out loud multiple times while I read this book What a character I sincerely hope there will be a third book as I am desperate to read about Bob and James

    This follow up to the bestselling 'A Street Cat Named Bob' is slower to get going but is highly enjoyable nonetheless Whereas the original Bob book was captivating from the off not least because it showed how Bob was a most unusual cat getting on the bus with James and so on here the observations are mundane detailing Bob behaving in ways that many cats do The recognition is pleasing but little and for the first third of the book I feared this was going to prove a disappointing follow up especially because as before I found the writing style clunky and the editing poor I don't hold James responsible for this the book is ghost written James tells us as much himself in the appendix but surely after all the success of the first book his publishers could have invested in a professional copy editor to cut the repetitions in this second tome?However as I read on again I found myself compelled to put my niggles about style to one side as I became increasingly drawn into the story of James and his feline friend and at the end I closed the book with a sense of satisfaction and pleasure As well as showing how easy it is for people to slip through the net and end up on the streets in the first place what struck me particularly was the sense this second book gave of James as a character in spite of a tough childhood he doesn't descend into blame and recrimination but takes responsibility for his shortcomings including his past heroine addiction Thus what might on the surface seem a simple story about one man and his cat is actually rather than that providing an uplifting example of how it's possible to turn one's life around if one has the right mindset James' emotional maturity is inspiring and is I'd venture to suggest one of the reasons the books have touched so many people around the world it's not just Bob we're fans of but James too

    I have enjoyed reading this book and the first book of James's and Bob's life together I couldn't put it down as I found it very interesting It made me sad at times and I cried and at some passages in the book I laughed out laud Its incredible how James and Bob the ginger cat met and bonded so deeply that they saved each others lives In the book James is talking about openly and honestly about his dark days of his past about his drug addiction and struggle to get clean about his relationship with his family and few friends his days living on the streets etc It opened my eyes what live is like for homeless people and how hard it is to live like this But what I have most enjoyed reading about was when James was talking about his everyday live with him and Bob and what was like for them to work on the streets of London and how their life turned around in a positive way I also saw him once near Neal Street in London walking with Bob on his shoulders It was such an unusual sight which I will never forgetThis is a real life story of hope love and determinationJames and Bob's story is fascinating and I truly believe that their destiny was to meet one another and inspire others to be kinder loving and understanding not only to homeless people but to animals and each other God bless you James and Bob

    The World According to Bobby James Bowen I won this book through Goodreads It was an amazing story The trust Bob had for Jim and Jim doing the very best he could to care for Bob especially when he had little funds Jim was a recovering drug addict Jim sold newspapers and played his guitar to earn a little money He was encouraged to write his first book about Bob and with the help of some professional writers; he did it Bob is everyone's favorite he did a few tricks and rode on Jim's neck and shoulders as Jim traveled the street of London on his bicycle At Jims flat Bob took care of Jim when he wasn't feeling good Bob would put his paw on Jim's forehead and lay on Jim's chest purring softly and also putting his ear to Jim's chest to hear his heart beat Bob is such an extraordinary cat With Jim's success he didn't have to earn money on the streets any I loved this book

  9. Maja Maja says:
