Homer's Odyssey

Nope. Not that one. This Homer is a cat. A blind cat.

This little black cat had an eye infection that required removal of his eyes. So Homer grew up blind.

It was a cute story but rather slow for me. There were a few interesting parts:

1) 911
2) The burglar story

but aside from those parts in the book, I was a little bored.

I also wondered how the heck a woman could be around...with, best friends with a guy (for three years) and not realize that she was in love with him...or at least "had feelings" for him until he started dating another woman.... REALLY? Sort of unbelievable.

Of course Gwen Cooper would have to dramatize a bit to make a story stay interesting but I wondered about a few things...and thought they couldn't be true.

But all-in-all it's an easy story to read. Kind of cute and not too long. But then again, the ending left me like "Huh?" It was anticlimatic. No ah-ha moment, no big conclusion, nope not this one...

So on a scale of 1 to 10...I'd give it a 4 and 1/2 - kind of mediocre.

4.5, not too great. Here's hoping the next one is more interesting.

Meh. I just finished a mediocre book, too and was irritated at wasting my time.
