Publisher's Summary

After five years of legal formalities, Jim Qwilleran has officially inherited his freedom and a fortune, which leaves him with a serious dilemma. What should he do now? Seeking a place of peace and isolation to make up his mind, he heads to the Potato Mountains for the summer. But Qwill lands in the middle of controversy, not solitude. The mountains are a haven for the independent, roughneck descendants of Prohibition-era moon-shiners. The valley is home to developers eager to turn the pristine Potatoes into a giant tourist trap. To make matters more complicated, a Tater, as the mountain folk are called, has been convicted of the murder of millionaire developer J.J. Hawkinfield. Some people swear the wrong man was convicted, and Qwill is inclined to agree when he hears what transpired before the trial. But if Forest Beechum didn't do the dirty deed, who did? With Qwill, Koko, and Yum Yum on the case, the killer won't get away with murder.

Disappointing

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I have listened to several books in this series and enjoyed them tremendously so had high hopes for this one. The story starts off well slowly unwinds to a quite unbelievable ending - it felt like a filler-book, one to fill in between other, better ones. I would not recommend it.


What could Lilian Jackson Braun have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Resolved some of the issues that are brought into the story - too many loose ends.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

Visiting the shop enroute to the mountains - the description of the interior was amazing and the conversation between the 2 men sooo funny, I laughed out loud.


Could you see The Cat Who Moved a Mountain being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

Not unless you brought in some more answers along the way. You would need a good, mature actor for the main role, one with a dry sense of humour - a low-key character. As for the cats ...


Any additional comments?

I desperately wanted to like this book - there were some really good story lines but they just fizzled out. Far too much time spent on interior decor!

Utterly charming

Charming, funny and gentle, the Cat Who books never fail to entertain. George Guidall's narration is perfect for the books, soft and smoothing as a warm bath on a cold night.

There were a couple on minor glitches in the editing around chapter 16 but not significant enough to spoil the story.
