I like all of "The Cat Wh. .books; I've been a fan of Lilian Jackson Braun for many years. But this one is simply tops. There is actual character development and a more complex plot among the simple but delightful folk of Moose County, 400 miles north of anywhere

I like all of "The Cat Wh. There is actual character development and a more complex plot among the simple but delightful folk of Moose County, 400 miles north of anywhere. Of course, the characters are about the same age they were 20 years ago, which actually makes me very happy because I get to keep them forever. The cats remain their same unique little selves, solving crimes and entertaining.

Her hair was hanging down to her waist, and she was wearing something filmy and apple green. Do you have company? I thought I heard you talking to someone. When you live alone, it’s sometimes necessary to hear the sounds of your own voice, and they’re good listeners.

The Cat Who Saw Red is the fourth book in The Cat Who series of mystery novels by Lilian Jackson Braun, published in 1986. In addition to a restaurant, the architecturally peculiar historic building is also a boarding house.

Lilian Jackson Braun (June 20, 1913 – June 4, 2011) was an American writer well known for her light-hearted series of The Cat Wh.The Cat Who books center on the life of former newspaper reporter, James Qwilleran, and his two Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum, in the fictitious small town of Pickax located in Moose County "400 miles north of everywhere

Lilian Jackson Braun. James Qwilleran and his famous felines, Koko and Yum Yum, are back for another mystery-solving stint in the beloved bestselling Cat Who.

Lilian Jackson Braun. Jim Qwilleran packs up his old kit bag and his two Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum, for a sun-and-fun summer at his log cabin in Moose County. Their vacation starts out ominously with the disappearance of a handyman hired to patch up Qwilleran's cabin. While the town of Pickax is swept up in its sesquicentennial celebrations, Koko has developed a strange new hobby: He drops himself from balconies, occasionally landing in the oddest of places.

th Jim Qwilleran and his two feline sidekicks become embroiled in a trio of deadly mysteries, in an omnibus volume containing The Cat Who Saw Red, The Cat Who Played Brahms, and The Cat Who Played Post Office. I enjoy Lillian Jackson Braun and her Cat mysteries. They are light reads and full of characters that keep you entertained and envious of their lifestyles and small town charm.

When Jim Qwilleran is sent to 'Maus Haus' on a gastronomical quest, he takes Koko and Yum Yum along for company and steps into a house of curiosities. There's restaurateur Robert Maus, elbow-deep in saucepans; cuddly Hixie with her daily calorie count; and Joy Graham, the red-headed flame from Qwilleran's past and a talented potter to boot. Then strange things occur as a startling scream pierces the night air and Joy disappears without trace. Koko, Yum Yum and their all-providing mentor, Qwilleran, are determined to solve the mystery...
  • I have the Kindle edition - I have to say that I think this is the best Kindle conversion I've seen - I don't recall any errors on the Kindle.

    I really want to own the first five books in Kindle form - this book is #4 in the series, and I have #1 through #3 - I only need #5!

    Qwill is trying to lose weight, but it's complicated when he is assigned to write a food columns for the Fluxion. As with all of the early books, he moves into a new place for this story. He meets the woman whom he had planned to marry (but she had run away); she is married, but unhappy - then she vanishes again. Can Qwill find her, with the help of super-smart Koko?

    The mysteries of the "Cat Who" stories are so-so; it is Qwill and the cats that make the tales re-readable.

    This book has several emotional shocks; one of them is when Qwill comes back from being out of town overnight and being told that his cats are dead. Other pretty shocking things happen on the way to resolving the mystery.

    The characters throughout her books are like real people: flawed - Qwill is trying to take off 30 pounds, and is having to deal with needing reading glasses in this book - this kind of thing carries on for Qwill and those around him in the books. While it is true to life, it is someone depressing to be reminded of this in light reading.

    Nevertheless, still highly enjoyable.

  • This was such a cute story. I remember reading these books as a kid and now as an adult I still love reading it. I plan on passing this along to my best friend who has two cats that meet the description of Koko and YumYum. I did want a little more from YumYum in this book, it was very Koko heavy. Jackson got the actions of the cats down pat especially with them playing with yarn. There are some twists, but some other things were a little predictable, but that is part of the charm of these books. Sometimes I wish my little fluffy monsters could do some of the fun things that these cats do. Qwill is an interesting character and I love how he tries to feed the cats normal cat food, reminds me of a friend of mine. There is just so much love for this book. I recommend it for readers young and old.

  • I love this author, this series. Great writer. Interesting way she ties everything together. And the cats don't "intrude" in the storyline. They definitely add another dimension to the book. The only thing I find, is there isn't too much of a transition from end of "story" and book's last page. Still a fun mystery story!

  • This is the fourth in the Cat Who Series; we were introduced to Jim Qwilleran--the only reformed alcoholic of the twentieth century who could be featured in a book without having that part of his history be the maudlin main event--in The Cat Who Could Read Backwards, the book in which he met and then adopted his famous cat, Koko. As a man who works doing a job he doesn't really love because he must pay the bills, and who seems to be able to balance his work and outside life in spite of his divorce and occasional girl-friends, Qwill is a likeable character with a bit of this-could-be-for-real that keeps the stories interesting.
    In this fourth book he lands in an improbable living situation, a boarding house for people interested in art run by a gourmet attorney who also cooks for them, and somehow the author manages, with the help of the big city atmosphere and the odd assortment of "characters" whom Qwill must deal in his work life, to make this improbable situation sound actually possible. Incredible bit of story telling, to me. Then we are introduced to several other incredibly improbable situations in perfectly credible ways, and before it was over I actually was interested in the outcome.
    The reading is quick and easy, hypnotic, almost; I resented the telephone's interruption. My grandmother used to say a good story well told could transport you away just like a vacation; reading this book is like taking one of those little vacations.

  • Braun seems to have slipped off the track in this one. I believe there are more books after this in the Cat Who series, but I haven't bothered to read them.

    This book just pushed the characters to places and actions that don't fit with all of the development they've gone thru to this point in the series. It's almost like someone else has picked up the characters and is now writing their stories.

    I understand that Braun is up there in years, and as disappointing as it is no one can be on top of their game forever.

    Sad about this series--for me, whether there are any books after this or not, it has ended.

  • A few years ago I read a Braun book about Qwill and the cats and enjoyed it, so I was looking forward to this read for my book club. I was so disappointed. It was a jumble of characters and plots that appeared, then disappeared. Qwill appears to be a nosy little old man. My last thought on reading the last page was, "What the heck?" Out of eight readers in my club, only two liked their books.

  • I have always enjoyed this series. Good clean fun with the mysteries being solved by the main character, Qwuilleran, and his superior cat, Koko. There are always lots of quirky characters and interesting facts.

  • This was a wild ride from start to finish. I'd read it before, but had mostly forgotten how it went, including the creepy twist with the glazes. Yeesh. I did appreciate how this book handled an unhealthy marriage though.
