Feb 25, Bethany rated it it was amazing. What can I say? Buying the English translated book off of eBay I didn’t know what to expect. This is my second time reading through it, and was at first appalled at the language and gore that I was not use to being associated with the cat genre.
But as I read on the mood set was amazing. Dark, depressing, and truly insane. Footnotes let you alif that Akif must have done a bit of cat research before writing. This book just never ceases to amaze me. This is a story about cats.

Lots of interesting cat facts and lore in the story. Jun 19, Steffi rated it liked it Shelves: Ever wonder what your cat thinks of you?
You really don’t want to know. I thought this would be a cozy-type mystery, but it was way too violent and graphic to claim that category. These cats are cynical, tyrannical and often bitter Francis is new in town, cocky, smart and sharp-tongued and he’s a cat. Stumbling upon a gore-ish murder in his neighborhood, he cannot stop himself from investigating a crime and unveiling an ingenious, but murderous nazi-like conspiracy – between cats.
It’s been some time since I’ve read this book, but I still remember many details of it. This book was just pidincci the main character, funny and smart, somewhat shocking and definitely surprising. Felidae is a unique, awesome read. If you don’t mind a li Francis is new in town, cocky, smart and sharp-tongued and eflidae a cat. If you don’t mind a little gore, a little sex and a lot of thrill AND love cats, this is a must read.
I’m not sure I’ve ever read a book where I felt such a divide between love of the story and inability to stomach the writing. And this is one of those cases, because, at least in this person’s opinion, the story may be great, but the writing is absolutely insufferable, and gets increasingly so over the course of the felidad.
The author appears akit believe in the stance that brooding and negativit I’m not sure I’ve ever read a book where I felt such a divide between love of the story and inability to stomach the writing. The author appears to believe in the stance that brooding and negativity are interesting and clever- and so, there is a lot of it.
A LOT of it. At first, I wondered if it was supposed to be the narrator simply having a feline voice- after all, his arrogance most likely was at least partially supposed akkf be due to him being a cat- but increasingly it dawned on me that we were supposed to be impressed by the pages upon pages of repetitive moaning about how life is a bleak abyss, there is no goodness in mankind, we are all spiraling into the void into the cold clutches of death.
Indeed, the book opens on such a note- but, again, I had given it the benefit of the doubt and taken it as him being a pretentious feline. The exact same points were moaned over for pages upon pages all throughout the book, with fe,idae slight changes in wording. It felt like he was trying to pad his akig count. I can pinpoint the exact point I would have put the book down if I wasn’t already so far into it; Francis, the protagonist, walks into another cat’s house, and sees him lying on a cushion.
For some reason, this prompts a page-long moaning about how maybe that cat is comfortable in his home, but in truth human beings are horrible horrible horrible to animals, and cause animals to “become homosexual,” mutilate themselves, rape or be raped- on and on and on. But worst of all was its treatment of disabilities; constant paragraphs upon paragraphs felidaee about poor, hideous invalids, pathetic, felkdae cripples living half-lives- a blind cat is literally described as having “no life” because she was blind.
All irrational and evil behavior is “schizophrenic. I gave it a star aki the concept and story are very good if you separate them entirely from how it’s written out.
Tra i quali io non figuro. Felidae is an insane but captivating murder mystery starting feoidae page one. An absolutely stunning novel that isn’t at all justified by saying it’s a “murder mystery about cats.
Mar 09, Lara Thompson rated it it was amazing. Gripping book by an author that clearly understands cats. The protagonist is a classic cynical down on his luck in a noir kind of way drawn into solving the serial murders on his fellow felines. The added footnotes of the scientific basis behind certain behaviours are priceless. Jul 05, Enterpricicle rated it really liked it.
This is a curious little novel. The protagonist, Francis, who happens to be a cat, investigates a gruesome crime and discovers a number of disturbing things that are happening in his neighbourhood. I’m not going to tell you anything specific about the plot, just a heads-up.
I personally love this book. It is creepy and frightening at times Francis’ nightmares are particularly disturbingbut the author has a way of writing that really draws me in. He sets up a storyline with a number of threads This is a curious little novel. He sets up a storyline with a number of threads which, admittedly, can be hard to keep track of at first and then weaves them together to form an excellent, suspenseful story.
The characters are diverse, interesting and anything but one-dimensional. It’s difficult to not fall in love with Francis – his witty, sometimes exasperated comments about his owner are hilarious, his characterization as a smart-ass is spot on and his intelligence is, for lack of a better word, captivating.
This smart-assery and intelligence are mirrored in the sarcastic way the book is written, which comes across very well in the german version, I’m not sure if it translates as some reviewers have mentioned the ‘pretentious’ writing.
The sarcastic narration is a nice counterpoint to the horrifying plot and the philosophical elements and makes this fun to read if sarcasm is your thing.
I highly recommend this book and the rest of the series to anyone who either loves cats, loves mysteries, thrillers and detective stories or loves both. Cat lovers in particular will appreciate the accurate descriptions of cat behavior and anatomy, but I disgress.
