Book Review: Catology by Adrian Searle & Oliver Ninnis
When you own a cat (or rather the cat owns you) and you are clearly not his favourite person, more a practice in attacking than anything else, when you see a book about cats and how they think, you know you have to read it.
Catology is a very quick read, and although the synopsis tells you what it's about, I did think we would get more within the pages.
I did like the images that went with the book, each page was an image of a cat carrying out various activities with a snarky/humorous comment to go with it. I did relate to several of the images, especially ones that relate to maiming/killing owners (a.k.a me)
I was expecting more pages within the book, and more words with less pictures.
Overall I did like Catology. It was a refreshing change to my recent reads, and I could relate to most aspects of the book.
