    Humans who think we don't understand them are the stupid ones Perfect Absolutely perfectHiro Arikawa is a masterful storyteller I loved every word I laughed I cried I was an emotional whirlwind in the best way possible Satoru a young businessman attempts to befriend a young feral cat with a crooked tail After a few weeks the two work towards a mutual understanding Satoru leaves crunchies for Nana and sometimes only sometimes Nana allows Satoru to pet himThen something awful happens Nana is struck by a car Somebody help me But that was idiotic Nobody was going to help a strayThen I remembered the man who came every night to leave me crunchies Maybe he could help Satoru hears Nana's painful yowls and rushes to help the injured cat And thus begins one of the greatest human feline friendships to have ever formed Only five years later Satoru packs everything into his car including Nana and sets off to find Nana a new home Bewildered but determined Nana knows one thing is for certain no one will keep him from his humanWow seriously wow this book was good I read it from cover to cover in a single afternoon and I'm itching for a re read alreadyHiro Arikawa did an amazing job of writing from a cat's perspective The combination of Nana's hilarious derision of humans Humans always underestimate our language skills Just cause they can read and write there's no need to act all high and mighty and the author's attention to detail regarding Nana's thoughts and habits I yawned back Sorry Zero interest Noriko just didn't get it A wide box spoils all the fun; it offers none of the charms of being inside a box really brought this book to life I don't know how to explain it other than Nana felt like a real cat to me As Satoru attempts to find Nana a new home he spends time with childhood friends Inevitably they begin to reminisce and the audience is treated with sweet poignant and hilarious flashbacks often with sarcastic commentary courtesy of NanaOne of my favorite moments is how Satoru obtained Hatchi his first cat I don't want to spoil it but it involved elementary kids running away climbing a school building leaning precariously over the roof and this uote Satoru turned to Kosuke with a grave expression on his face Kosuke could you like kind of straddle the railing? I honestly don't think this book could possibly be better This is the kind of book that everyone should read at least once in their lifetimes Because it was a very special thing to have your own cat in your home With thanks to Berkley Publishing for an arc in exchange for an honest reviewAll uotes are from an uncorrected proof and are subject to change upon final publicationYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

    This is a uirky poignant and heartbreaking novel translated from the Japanese There are the odd occasions at the beginning of this novel that you may think it is a trifle simplistic but bear with it as it will draw you in It is related from the perspective of Satoru Miyawaki and his beloved Nana a stray cat so named because his tail resembles the Japanese character for the number seven Nana loved settling on Satoru's silver van and found himself getting fed by him He resembles a cat Hachi from Satoru's childhood Nana is seriously injured in a car accident makes his way to Satoru who gets him to a vet and proceeds to nurse the cat for several months until he recovers Feeling the depth of love that emanates from Satoru the cat decides to stay They have been happy together until the day Satoru embarks on a road trip to hand over Nana to one of his friends to look after as he is no longer in a position to look after himNana is puzzled as to why he is being given away as indeed are Satoru's friends there is some speculation as to whether he has lost his job but they do not probe further Their first stop is where Satoru grew up with his close friend Kosuke a cat lover with a difficult father and currently experiencing marital strife Stories from their childhood include the wondrous running away from their parents incident orchestrated by Satoru in an attempt to manipulate Kosuke's father to accept a kitten Hachi which failed Satoru takes in Hachi and the two were inseparable until circumstances precipitated Satoru's moving in with his aunt Noriko when Hachi is given to distant relatives The visit ends with Satoru suggesting that Kosuke finding his own cat to lure his wife back Noriko's job as a judge results in several moves and Satoru going to different high schools where he befriends Yoshimine who is now farming and the next stop on the road trip Yoshimine had parents who did not want him so he ends up living with his grandmother The two were like brothers at school but manipulation ensures it will not be Nana's new home Their next stop is near Mount Fuji at Suki and Chikako's Hotel for Pets Elements of their visit are strained with Suki comparing himself to Satoru and finding himself wanting This feeds his insecurities that his wife Chikako would have preferred Satoru rather than him Once again circumstances conspire to ensure that Nana does not stayThe pair go on to see the glory and vibrancy of nature the elemental force that is the sea and the graves of Satoru's parents This is a story of a man and his cat and what they will do to stay together for as long as is possible It speaks of Satoru his life his friends and above all else his unbreakable bond with the wise and committed Nana This is a gentle yet utterly compelling read Apparently this book has been a bestseller in Japan and I can see why A highly recommended read Many thanks to Random House Transworld for an ARC

    I decided to read this small novel because I recently adopted a lovely kitten and the blurb promised a “tender feel good story of a man's journey around Japan with a streetcat ” As I feel nothing but love for my fur ball I thought this was going to be the perfect companion for the moments Arya decides to sleep in my lap and I have to keep still 2 hours so I do not disturb the princess It started as promised a funny story from the cat’s perspective but then it became a bitter sweet account of friendship loss and love And the ending well it broke my heart in million tiny pieces I read the last pages on the plane and I was pretending to look out of the window so the other passengers would not see the tears streaming down my face I probably should have expected this since the writer is Japanese and I am yet to read an entirely joyful novel coming from that countryThe novel starts in the mind of a successfully stray male cat that starts to accept food from a kind hearted stranger After he is badly injured by a car he is taken in by the cat lover and soon becomes a beloved pet to Satoru Miyawaki They become increasingly attached with one another and it comes as a surprise when Satoru begins to search for someone to adopt the cat now named Nana because he was unable to keep her any longer The 2 companions embark on a trip along the Japanese islands unsuccessfully searching for the perfect human replacement It becomes the perfect pretext to visit old friends from Satoru’s past and re live important moments from his childhood Nana’s voice is exactly as I imagine a cat talk Ironic witty straight forward overconfident and reluctant to fully admit its feelings of love for his human companion The cat’s nuggets of wisdom are mingled with a 3rd person account of the trip and the recollection of Satoru’s relationship history with each person they visit Although in the beginning the prose feels very simple and naive it soon becomes clear that it is a bit than a feel good story about a cat and her master It was sweet endearing and sad as I learned about Satoru’s childhood and I started to guess the reason he had to abnadon his dear furry friend Although they were a tear jerker I still loved Satoru and Nana’s adventures and I warmly recommend this novel to anyone with a heart and love for animals I thank Netgalley Hiro Arikawa and Random House UK Transworld Publishers for providing me with a copy in exchange for my honest review PS Here’s a pic with my little one

    The story begins with a stray cat who enjoys being free and is very happy with his life His favorite place to sleep is on top of a parked silver van that belongs to a young man named Satoru Satoru likes the cat and brings him ‘crunchies’ from time to time Eventually the cat suffers an injury and needs some help “By the time I reached the silver van dawn was breaking I really couldn’t take another step This is it I thought I cried out at the top of my lungs Owwowwwww” Luckily Satoru comes to his rescue takes him in as his pet and a beautiful relationship begins to develop between the two He names the cat Nana and they become best friendsYears later Satoru tells Nana that they’re going on a road trip together He has to find a new home for Nana and it’s unknown exactly why On the trip they visit each of Satoru’s friends around Japan and it’s like a trip down memory lane “It seemed Satoru wanted me to go with him somewhere He opened the door of my basket and I got in without making a fuss For the five years I’d lived with him I’d always been a sensible cat For instance even when he took me to my bête noire the vet I didn’t make a racket” When it’s time for Nana to stay at his new home it’s something he’s not willing to accept In Nana’s eyes Satoru is his home and the only one he’s willing to acceptThe story started out slow and seemed too simple at first I had some issues with the dialoguenarration in the beginning and had a hard time getting into it I realized that I just needed to slow down and once I settled in it was hard to put the book down It was around the last half of the book that literally had me captivated with all the beautiful scenery and adventures they took together As the story unfolded I had so many emotions It’s been awhile since I’ve had to walk away from a book multiple times to bawl my eyes out Other times I found Nana hilarious as he reminded me of my old wise outdoor cat Rambo How Nana talks is how I imagine the animals in my life think As a pet owner in general I reflected greatly when reading this story as it reminded me of the unconditional love we have for each otherOverall this story is truly written beautifully and I thought the epilogue wrapped it up perfectly Honestly I don’t think you have to be a cat lover to enjoy this book I’d recommend it to anyone Also I was very excited to learn that the book has been adapted to film and can’t wait to watch it45I’d like to thank Elisha at Berkley Publishing Group and the author Hiro Arikawa for sharing this book with me in exchange for an honest reviewYou can also see this review

    ‘’Human beings are basically huge monkeys that walk upright but they can be pretty full of themselves’’Confession alert each time I see a cat and I literally mean EACH time I shout ‘’Kitty’’ at the top of my lungs like a 5 year old who has never seen a cat before or like a 33 year old cat idiot which is precisely what I am Unashamedly I adore all animals but cats are one of my major weaknesses Further Greeks love cats and the beautiful felines are one of the attractions of Athenian neighborhoods and every village in Greece so there is no escaping my adoration in the all holy Cat shrine Now this bubbling means that I absolutely loved no adored Hiro Arikawa’s marvelous gem of a novel ‘’I know this is a bit sudden but could you take my cat for me?’’The novel starts with a male sassy and hugely intelligent cat commenting on the things that make felines utterly majestic Accurate The yet unnamed feline meets Satoru a young man who is a cat fanatic through and through Satoru becomes his owner names him Nana and the once stray angel becomes an adored pet However after five years Satoru is unable to keep him So the two protagonists start a journey through Japan and through Satoru’s childhood memories to find the most suitable and fortunate owner for Nana These are their stories The Husband Without A Life Satoru’s most beloved childhood friend Kozuke is the first candidate A young man who has marital problems that go back a turbulent relationship with his tyrannical father This isn’t just a story of Kozuke but also a vital insight into Satoru’s past and a sad yet tender chapter The Unsentimental Farmer A former classmate who loves nature and knows how to talk straight an honest soul is Satoru’s next destination This chapter is dominated by a super wonderful grandma ‘’Relax with your beloved pet while enjoying a breathtaking view of mount Fuji’’ Sugi and Chikako’s Hotel For Pets This is a lovely scenery is it not? Here we have a beautiful setting a sassy sexy female feline a weird dog and a marriage plagued by jealousy Not sure whether Nana could put up with all these at the same time ‘’I don’t get why humans like to have a huge stone put on top of them when they kick the bucket’’ Between Friends Now we travel to Hokkaido in a chapter that is actually a celebration of the nature of Japan One of my favourite moments in the book How Noriko Learned to Love In the final journey we are taken to Sapporo to meet Satoru’s aunt Noriko A fascinating difficult remarkable woman and a revelation that left me speechless I froze Those of you who have read the book will surely know what I’m talking about ‘’It’s called Nana After the shape of his tail like a seven’’As Adina write in her beautiful review this novel is a symphony of excellent fascinating notes First of all Arikawa has done a tremendous job in depicting how a sassy genius cat would speak how it must think and behave Satoru is a wonderful character and this novel is full of rich memorable characters I could see every cat lover in him However the wealth of the Japanese setting becomes a character on its own Japanese stories and traditions the sea and the mountains The glimpses in certain well known Japanese values from work ethic and the ‘’crime’’ of breaking the rules to the art of decluttering There is an underlying sadness throughout the story along with hope and love However I felt that the presence of loss and death was too powerful to overcome This isn’t a cute happy story that has a talking cat as a protagonist Far from it and if you go into the book expecting this then you’ll be disappointed This is a poignant difficult powerful journey of understanding yourself and most importantly the others Of the bravery we need to unearth once we’re faced with impossible choices and irreversible situations Having a cat as a company makes everything a little bit better ‘’As we count up the memories from one journey we head off on anotherRemembering those who went ahead Remembering those who will follow after’’My reviews can also be found on

    'as we count up the memories from one journey we head off on another remembering those who went ahead remembering those who will follow after and someday we will meet all those people again out beyond the horizon' oh my goodness who would expect such a tiny book to contain so much e m o t i o n?as a previous long time cat owner this book is something that i can relate to on somewhat of an instinctual level from recognising nanas various moods to empathising with satoru for how much he loves nana its feels like once youre a cat person you will always be a cat person but i am positive that other pet owners will be able to relate to this story as well by accompanying a man and his cat on their journey across japan the reader is able to understand that even if the destination changes home will always be where the heart is and sometimes your heart is simply given to a pet having just reached the one year anniversary of losing my cat a little fur ball who had unconditionally been by my side for 16 years this is a story that i really needed to read and one i know i will visit countless times throughout my life because sometimes reading about a cat on an adventure is exactly what is needed to cheer the soul 3↠ 5 stars

    The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa Philip Gabriel Translator is a 2018 Viking publication Originally published in 2012 An emotional poignant story featuring an amazing cat named Nana Nana is a stray cat who enjoys sleeping in the sun on the hood of a van and tolerating humans if necessary especially if he is given crunchy bits to eat But when tragedy strikes by way of getting hit by a car Nana is taken in by the human Satoru the van owner who leaves him food Satoru names him Nana because his crooked tail is shaped like the Japanese number seven They have some great times together but suddenly after several years Satoru must re home his beloved cat So he goes on a journey with Nana to find him a new home The journey takes us back in time to Satoru’s childhood where we learn about his life and his friendships and relationship with a cat he knew before he had Nana for whom he still mourns He gets to reconnect with old friends but has a hard time finding someone who can take Nana Nana is our storyteller and narrates this journey in a way only a cat could If you are a cat lover you will know exactly what I mean Nana of course knows in his infinite wisdom the lessons that will enlighten Satoru and the reader upon his journey This is such a wonderful fable despite the tearjerker premise centering on friendship and human connections Satoru may have led a life of isolation but he is a such a warm hearted man and of course I recognized in him a fellow ‘cat person’ which endeared him to me even But perhaps to those who may feel cats are too aloof for your taste this book dispels that notion in countless ways We realize right away that Satoru is helping Nana taking care of him even before his accident giving him a very nice pampered life We see what a gentle soul he is despite some very difficult times in his life But it is what Nana does for Satoru that is at the heart of the story What Satoru learns on their journey and how Nana remains his best friend is loyal to him in all ways and eternally grateful will bring tears to your eyes Yes this story is sentimental and bittersweet but the message is profound despite or maybe because of its simplicity and will resonate with pet lovers of all stripes but certainly to those who have a truly special bond with their feline companions

    35 stars I wasn’t going to read this book I’m not a cat person I’m not a dog person either In all honesty I’m just not an animal person although I do find kittens and puppies to be adorable I hope all my pet loving friends won’t judge me it’s just the way I am But I couldn’t ignore all of the wonderful reviews that talked about what a lovely story this was and I’m glad I didn’t skip it A lonely man Satoru adopts a stray cat a feisty sometimes sarcastic sometimes sweet and always loyal cat We know this because Nana as he is named is the narrator of this story The two connect or rather I should say Nana connects with Satoru when Satoru cares for him after he is hit by a car Satoru was already taken with Nana leaving food as Nana camped out by Satoru silver van We later discover that he loved a different cat when he was a young boy And thus begins their friendship Five years later they embark on a journey across Japan as Satoru is seeking a new home for Nana On their travels it is eventually revealed why Satoru is trying to find a new home for his beloved cat It is through this journey that we come to know Satoru and through his visits with friends from his childhood and his aunt we learn things haven’t always been easy for him It’s a uick read that is simply written sentimental sweet and sad The writing felt a little too simplistic at times but perhaps it’s because it’s a translation You don’t have to be a cat lover to feel the heart in this story about companionship compassion acceptance loss and how to say goodbyeI received an advanced copy of this book from Berkeley through NetGalley Thanks Elisha

It's not the journey that counts but who's at your sideNana a cat is devoted to Satoru his owner So when Satoru decides to go on a roadtrip one day to find him a new home Nana is perplexed They visit Satoru's old fr I finished this book and closed itI immediately had chills all through my bodyThis book is an excellent experience The characters and the story will grab you from page one and won’t let you go You will be told stories of good things and bad things friendships and jealousy family and heartbreak Each of them whether they bring sadness or joy will fill your heart and satisfy your mindWhile pets do play a key role in this story I don’t think you need to be a pet lover to enjoy it I am not a big “fur baby” person myself but I loved every single page of it And if you are a pet person I think you will find even satisfaction from this than I did In fact I find myself wanting to go out and get a cat nowBring your Kleenex you are going to need itThere is really nothing wrong with this book It is absolutely perfect It is going on my favorites list and I recommend it to allThank you so much to Berkley for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I love when a publisher provides such great literature for me to read
