There’s only one thing to say about Edeet Ravel’s The Cat: Wow!
This was by far my favourite book among the Evergreen Nominees. Ravel’s writing is amazing; I didn’t feel like I understood the Elise – I felt like I was Elise.
This was admittedly an incredibly depressing book, especially at the start. But I love that things change so slowly that you don’t even really notice. It’s the same old day-to-day and then suddenly it isn’t. My one gripe with this book is its ending, everything just wraps up too neatly.
There are just two books left on my list, one I’m looking forward to and one I’m not. I’m not going to say which is which because opinions change.
