Item Description...
Download DescriptionThe world of modern art is a mystery to many. But for Jim Qwilleran, it turns into a mystery of another sort when his assignment to the art beat for The Daily Fluxion leads down the path to murder. A stabbing in an art gallery, vandalized paintings, a fatal fall from a scaffolding--this is not at all what Qwilleran expects when he turns his reportorial talents to art. But Qwilleran and his newly found partner, Koko the brilliant Siamese, are back in their element--sniffing out clues and confounding criminals intent on mayhem and murder.

Not my type of mystery novel....  Jun 13, 2008
When i first discovered the whole "cat mystery" genre, I became curious, so I decided to give this one a try, and listened to the audio version.

For a mystery novel, it's unusual in that the mystery doesn't start until about halfway into the book. The author first establishes the characters and we get to follow the main character, Jim Qwilleran as he starts working at his new job, making some new friends, etc. I suppose these parts were occasionally somewhat funny and the characters were interesting, but I would prefer to have the mystery start much earlier.

The writing was good but I personally didn't find the story very interesting, but I guess this isn't my type of mystery. It seems to be popular among readers of cozy mysteries, so I suppose I can recommended the book to those cozy mysteries fans who haven't already read it. Readers looking for suspense should look elsewhere.
The Cat Who Could Read Backwards - the purrfect mystery!  Jan 27, 2008
Lilian Jackson Braun is a great author, and this mystery was no exception. I highly recommend her books.
Good beginning to a beloved series  Nov 30, 2007
Jim Qwilleran is a former crime reporter with a checkered past who lands at a smallish town newspaper known as the Daily Fluxion. He is hired as an art columnist even though he knows nothing about the subject and proceeds to meet a variety of interesting characters in the community. Qwilleran rents a room from the paper's art critic and gets to know a very special Siamese cat named Kao K'o-Kung or "Koko" as Jim starts to call him. When a local art gallery proprietor is murdered, it begins a series of dark events that Jim tries to unravel with the help of a certain whiskered feline.

This is the first in a long series of "The Cat Who..." books that is currently up to something like 30 novels. Jim Qwilleran is a likeable detective even if he isn't exactly up there with Holmes or Poirot in the brains department. His greatest asset in solving crimes appears to be that his mustache twitches when he's onto a good lead. The cat, Koko, is apparently far more aware of what's really going on and his only frustration is in having to communicate with a human to get the truth out. It's a funny setup, especially if you love cats.

The story meanders amiably even after the murders have started. Some mysteries are a roller coaster of suspense and thrills. This is more of a relaxing drive through rolling hills. But it's always interesting and often amusing. The mystery is interesting enough but the solution was a bit out of left field and I was mildly disappointed by that.

I find myself wanting to use words like "charming" when describing this book even if it sounds archaic. This was a good book and a good beginning to the series. I'd recommend it to anyone as long as they are willing to accept the understated nature of the writing and accept it for what it is.
The Cat Who Could Read Backwards  Nov 15, 2007
I found these books by chance, I had just finished reading the Joe Grey Mysteries and wanted books along the same line. and I found the Cat Who series.

Mrs.Braun teaches you things without you even knowing as you are reading. Quill is such a likeable and real person, that I found myself looking for him in the grocery store. :) Art, literature, pottery, birds, you name it; each book brought more surprises.

and the cats, they do so many familiar things that our own tabbies do that it has made us both look at them in a new way. we are the ones who do not understand them, they understand us perfectly.
The cat who could read backwards  Oct 21, 2007
There is only one problem, and it is of my making. The book was a paperback and I am collecting hardbacks of Lillian Jackson Braun's The Cat Who...series. It said WalMart edition and I didn't realize that meant paperback.
