Review: The Tiger in the House: A Cultural History of the Cat

User Review  - Becky Lord - Goodreads

Horribly outdated and really just a list of quotes and anecdotes, half of which are in French. I enjoyed a few sections, but in reality, this book is an example of an excellent concept executed very poorly. Too bad. Perhaps I should write a similar book. Read full review
