the.book.chat. ~ Homer's Odyssey

Happy Thursday!  Only 2 more days until the weekend, phew!  I'm ready for another 3 day weekend (don't be jealous...I work all day on a Sunday for it).  Being that it is Thursday, that means it's book chat time.  Today's topic is what we are currently ready.  I am linking up with Jessica over at Sweet Green Tangerine for today's post.


Homer's Odyssey

Homer's Odyssey is my current book.
I am a big fan of memoirs, especially when they are about animals.  I have read the books Dewey, The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched The World, and  Oogie: The Dog only a Family Could Love. Both of these books brought tears to my eyes.

Here is a summary about Homer's Odyssey ~ 
(straight from Barnes&Noble)

The last thing Gwen Cooper wanted was another cat. She already had two, not to mention a phenomenally underpaying job and a recently broken heart. Then Gwen’s veterinarian called with a story about a three-week-old eyeless kitten who’d been abandoned. It was love at first sight.
Everyone warned that Homer would always be an “underachiever.” But the kitten nobody believed in quickly grew into a three-pound dynamo with a giant heart who eagerly made friends with every human who crossed his path. Homer scaled seven-foot bookcases with ease, survived being trapped alone for days after 9/11 in an apartment near the World Trade Center, and even saved Gwen’s life when he chased off an intruder who broke into their home in the middle of the night. But it was Homer’s unswerving loyalty, his infinite capacity for love, and his joy in the face of all obstacles that transformed Gwen’s life. And by the time she met the man she would marry, she realized that Homer had taught her the most valuable lesson of all: Love isn’t something you see with your eyes.

There really isn't anything else I can say.  So far, I am loving this story!
