    One thought on “The Cat Who Knew Shakespeare”

    1. Book Review4 of 5 stars to The Cat Who Knew Shakespeare, the 7th book in the Cat Who series, published in 1988 by Lilian Jackson Braun At this point, the series is well under way Qwill has been in Pickax, Moose County, 400 miles north of everywhere, for almost a year He s gotten to know several of the town s residents, taken on a part time column at the local paper and begun dating Polly Duncan, which will turn out to be a very low key relationship for at least the next ten books in the series I [...]

    2. In this 7th book in the series, Jim Qwilleran Quill formerly a crime reporter in Chicago is living in a town called Pickax in Moose Countya region that s 400 miles north of everywhere Qwill moved to the nether regions because he s required to live in Pickax for five years to get his inheritance the Klingenschoen fortune and the Klingenschoen mansion One of Qwills notable characteristics is his luxuriant moustache, which twitches when something is off Qwill isn t very interested in the trappings [...]

    3. I m not a cat person, I m really not But you just can t not love these cats Lilian Jackson Braun really knew how to craft a cozy Murder and violence happens, but conveniently off scene There are lots of lovable and quirky characters in a small town Of course, this small town s murder rate must be atrocious This is actually one of the better ones Very enjoyable.

    4. Good, my only problem is that she keeps killing off 2 or residents of the town in each book By the time I get to 30 of her books, there won t be any one left in town.

    5. If you ve never read any of The Cat Who books, you really should They are a mindless, easy readd really fun I ve read them all, and love them

    6. Neanche questa avventura, prevalentemente incendiaria , mi ha convinto, ma i libri della serie sono ancora tanti Ci vorrebbe un po pi di mistero, pi interazione felina e gradirei anche sapere qualcosina sulla vita di Jim Carini gli scheletri negli armadi degli abitanti di Mooseville.

    7. The gym I m a member of has a shelf of free books to take for your workout, if you happen to be one of those folks who can run, bike and read at the same time I m not, but noticed this volume of Braun s The Cat Who series while waiting for my friend in the foyer I d read many of these books as a kid, and liked them So, wondering if Braun would hold up to twenty years of life including a college and graduate school education, I took home The Cat Who Knew Shakespeare Though not a work of shall I s [...]

    8. Maybe 2.5 stars if I m being generous I m starting to wonder why I ve been continuing with these series The protagonist is still a selfish, chauvinist pig the murders are not interesting or of emotionally invested characters and the suspense in the mystery does not manage to be compelling at all The only slightly redeeming qualities of these books are the involvement of the cats and reading about the old mansions and antiques If this series doesn t start getting better like the first few books w [...]

    10. koko trying to view spoiler lick the ceramic glaze off the china plate hide spoiler is by far the funniest thing to happen

    11. I found this to be a charming little mystery My only complaint is I have no idea why Qwill is a millionaire and why he is living in Pickax I guess I will have to go back and read the others in this very long running series I love the quirky characters and Koko and Yum Yum although I think there should be of the cats and less of Polly or Hixie as they were very irritating characters Also I was a little put out by how nonplussed Qwill was when his friend Harry was killed, I mean Qwill dragged him [...]

    12. Zeer aangenaam om te lezen maar tot op de laatste 20 bladzijden is er eigenlijk geen moordonderzoek Je voelt dat er iets niet klopt maar het grootste gedeelte van het boek is een feelgood verhaal met de ondertussen vertrouwde personages en uteraard enkele nieuwkomers Er zijn lugubere verhalen, kleine mysteries en de actie van de brandweeer en zelfs een sterfgeval maar niets wijst erop dat er een moordonderzoek loopt Je krijgt heel veel achtergrond zodat je de karakters nog beter leert kennen of [...]

    13. This is a fun little tale, although it jumps around so much, with so many red herrings, that it s difficult to figure out exactly what the mystery is, let alone whodunit But it has cats and Shakespeare all it needs now is Vader and bacon.

    14. Sometimes when I re read a mystery I m way ahead of the story, and sometimes I m way behind this time I was somewhere in the middle I did not anticipate any of the major events, but I was suspicious of the right people.This book is one after the transition It seems that Braun wrote several books starring Qwilleran and Koko and adding Yum yum at the end of the second , in which he was a starving newspaper reporter then she took a decade or so off and returned with the same characters having inher [...]

    15. Now and then Lilian Jackson Braun would clear the decks of elements of Jim Qwilleran s life that she was tired of If she had stopped with the dismantling of the antique local newspaper the Pickax Picayune, that would have made a nice mystery, but what a sad destruction in the climax Qwill s new housekeeper makes a fine addition to the cast, but she would have wished to be less involved in the mystery And why did another old character have to be dragged in and added to the clearing out The instin [...]

    16. THE CAT WHO KNEW SHAKESPEARE by Lilian Jackson Braun3 This is one of many books of this series They all revolve around the central character Jim Qwilleran and his two Siamese, Koko and Yum Yum Mr Qwilleran is a newspaper journalist who gets involved in various murder mysteries In this particular story he is living the good life due to his now a millionaire after inheriting a vast estate from a long lost wealthy relative The terms of the will, however, dictate that he actually live on the estate [...]

    17. Friends shouldn t buy bad books for friends Guilt read Reminds me of a made for TV Animal Planet show Sorry, Yum Yum and Koko, but your owner is an insane man who gets credit for solving crimes when he does nothing and then pretends that his cats help him He, like all of the characters, is flat he only exhibits good qualities to the older women in Moose County The man can do no wrong he loves art and cats, stands up for women, and has a nice moustache that hints that something is awry Qwilleran [...]

    18. My initial impression of The Cat Who Knew Shakespeare by Lilian Jackson Braun Wilford Brimley Jimmy Olsen 2 Siamese cat detectives To tell the truth my impression didn t really change that much by the time I got to the end My mom found a couple of books in the series for me and I thought I d begin with this one because I like cats and I like Shakespeare As it turned out, I just couldn t get into it My love of Shakespeare references and cats kept me from giving it 1 star Maybe I would have liked [...]

    19. Found this priceless book in an used book store in middle of Kansas, not a world class literary novel or catching story It just reminded me of those simpler times, I could totally relate this book to a James Hardley Chase Novella, which can be picked up on a Railway Platform Perfect for an evening in Train with a bag of Chips and a Pepsi.Do read it if you miss short novels and simpler childhood stories Fun, simple, one time read for a one sitting.

    20. The mystery is paper thin and it s a tragi comedie in a small, incestuous town 400 miles north of every where Rereading these you can make your own drinking game, mine is which Goodwinter is gonna be murderer We had two in this one like in the last novel The villain of the tale is grotesque and the will it snow or not motif was tiresome So barely two stars.

    21. I love these books I ve been reading them for years I first started reading them when my kids were in grade school and I still am not that I m a grandma They are a light hearted mystry series that really gets you into the characters If you love cats, you will love these books

    22. I just love this series The distinguished retired bachelor who has two cats named Koko and Yum Yum solves mysteries with the help of Koko This is the first one I read They are easy and clever reads.

    23. I think I read this book too earlyAlthough I have a high reading level I don t fully comprehend it I can t see the mysteryt.

    24. Yes I am really into this series right now Each book has a great new mystery to be solved by two highly intelligent cats and their inquisitive owner

    25. Jim Qwilleran lives in his apartment over the garage while Mrs Cobb, his housekeeper and the museum curator, lives in a room of the K Mansion The whole area is waiting for The Big One, the first snowstorm of the season Senior Goodwinter, the owner and editor of the Picayune newspaper ran into an old bridge on his way home His wife plans to sell the newspaper to XYZ Enterprises as well as the furnishings to her house and move Down Below Before the newspaper can sell, the building burns down Qwill [...]

    26. Spoiler alert The front and back covers of The Cat Who Knew Shakespeare, with its cat puns and ridiculous wordplay, were of a much higher quality than the contents of the book itself I picked this book up, one in a series by Lilian Jackson Braun about a middle aged newspaperman and his two cats, as a joke for a friend, but I decided I should read it first before I handed it over Now I feel bad that I m going to give it away because it was so bad It was hardly the story the plot synopsis makes it [...]

    27. I read one of these books when I was in grade school after my cat lover friend recommended the series I didn t find it interesting back then, and I still don t I m surprised how much the reader has to care about these cats Koko and Yum Yum There s nothing spectacular about them, nothing magical they re just cats that knock things over giving Qwuilleran an idea for solving a case The problem for me is that the cats are featured a lot.The books take place in the Midwest, and Lilian Jackson Braun g [...]
