Publisher's Summary

Casper became a national celebrity when newspapers ran the story of the amazing cat that regularly took the No. 3 bus on journeys around his home town, Plymouth, in Devon, South-West England. While his devoted owner Sue Finden had wondered where her elusive pet was disappearing to each day, Casper was brightening the lives of countless commuters. Bus drivers, too, were getting well-acquainted with Casper, and notices went up in their depot alerting staff that a very special passenger might board their vehicle. In fact, he became a mascot for the bus company, and pictures of him and Susan adorned No. 3 buses.
When Casper was sadly killed by a car in early 2010 messages of sympathy flooded in from places as far afield as Australia and Argentina. It quickly became clear that Casper and his remarkable story had touched the lives of many people around the world. Movingly told by the owner who loved him dearly, Casper the Commuting Cat is the touching story of a very special black-and-white cat who rode the bus and stole our hearts.

Difficult to listen to because of the narrator

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A different narrator.


Any additional comments?

I have not listened to the entire book and as yet I am unsure if I will be able to. The narration is marred for me by the sounds of saliva in the narrators mouth. Over and above the story I hear slurping, bubbling and swallowing which make it almost impossible for me to enjoy listening to this. The story has not engaged my interest yet and therefore I am sure I will give up on this book.
