    Please don t think me churlish, but I will kick off by saying that this book is not terribly well crafted it s repetitive and poorly copy edited So, if you re snobby about writing, I suggest you give it a miss That said, it ll be your loss, as it is a heartwarming book with an important message, for reasons other than its prose.Bowen describes how he was invisible when he was homeless, and the difference it made when he found Bob and took him busking with him Suddenly people the public saw James, interacted with him, respected him Having Bob humanised the man who was with him, and helped James turn his life around.It echoes why this book matters were it entitled A Man Named James I strongly suspect it would be invisible too I doubt it would be published, let alone topping the bestseller charts, with James on TV sharing his experience As a cat lover, it was Bob that made me gravitate to the story, and I m sure I m not alone he is a particularly fine feline for all sorts of reasons but there s so much to this than fluff through telling us about Bob, James is also able to share what it s like living on the streets, to busk, to sell the Big Issue and to come off drugs all things most of us would otherwise shy away from reading about.James Bowen isn t a writer, and he acknowledges at the end that he had some help in putting his story together anyway But whilst A Streetcat Named Bob might not be great literature, it increases our understanding of people who often don t have a voice, and for that deserves its plaudits.

    Looking through the reviews for this book there is a lot of hype against the writing so I won t bother writing anything about it, you ll see for yourself I loved this book for so many reasons Living in Britain Probably anywhere, in fact There is a lot of irritation and even anger towards homeless people, it s very close minded and I think ANYONE could benefit from reading this book You see it from a whole new perspective and I do believe Bob makes that easier Humans seem to find it easier to feel compassion towards animals and not our own which is why this book will catch ANY animal lovers heart You can feel James has a connection with Bob, he makes it so evident.It s a wonderfully tale of a mans journey through, most likely, the hardest experience anyone could ever endure Addiction isn t easy.I ve been enlightened and my heart has softened considerably to Big issue sellers and to those I once thought slightly lowly of before A street cat named Bob has the ability, if you let it, to start seeing the stereotypes differently.To sum this crappy review upCat lovers and happy ending lovers READ THIS Anyone who is a close minded, The sun reader you MUST read this.Bob is a baaaaabe

    James Bowden was a homeless man living on the streets of London struggling with a drug addiction During the day he would do busking to make a bit of money to support himself Having spent time in hostels for the homeless, he was finally given his own flat On returning back home one day James finds a ginger Tom cat outside his flat It is from this day on that the pair forms a special attachment to one another James decides to name the cat Bob, and on most days when James started out busking Bob would join him Bob would sit in the guitar case and watch as the people threw their money in the case The friendship that James and Bob form was heartwarming to say the least This was an emotional, touching, uplifting, but most of all very inspiring tale Highly recommended.

    Adev rul este c eram nc nehot r t ce s fac cu Bob n ciuda sentimentului pe care l aveam, c pisica asta i cu mine eram cumva sorti i s fim mpreun , eram aproape convins cumva c n cele din urm tot o s plece, croindu i propriul drum n via B nuiesc c avusesem noroc cu Bob p n n momentul acela De c nd l luasem n grija mea, fusese perfect s n tos, sut la sut n form Avusese purici la nceput, dar asta era de a teptat la o pisic stradal De c nd i f cusem tratament i i d dusem preventiv pastile mpotriva parazi ilor, nu mai suferise de pe urma nici unor probleme de s n tate.

    I actually met James and Bob a couple years ago around Covent Garden Both of them are wonderfully brilliant characters in their own right Back then, I recall him telling me and Theresa about a book that he was putting out, but I didn t really give it much thought.Fast forward to a month ago, and what do I find in a bookstore but a stack of this book I m so happy he actually managed to get it out there for everyone to read.This is an warming, enjoyable book that is both heart felt as well as educational Those of us that haven t had to live on the streets don t really get a handle on just how hard a life that is This book not only details one mans struggle to get off his feet and out of the rough life, but also about the ginger cat that gave him that push.It s not a difficult read, but I would highly recommend it to everyone Brought a lot of smiles to my face during its reading.

    This is a wonderful feel good true story about a street Cat named Bob and his owner a recovering heroin addict and the streets of London I don t read books about animals but this sure pulled at my heart strings and made me realise everybody should experience the love of a pet at least once in their lives.This is a story of love and devotion and how sometimes we are sent little signs of help and encouragement we just have to learn how to recognise them and I am sure that James was so happy that he paid attention to the cat hanging outside his apartment as his life was never the same again.This is a wonderful feel good read, it s an inspiring story and its very simply told and yet you must keep reminding yourself this really happened and it s a story about a man and his beloved cat This book made me realise you can pass a man in the street without giving him a second glance but try passing a cute ginger cat with a man in the street and you will have eyes only for the cat If you are a cat pet lover you will enjoy this book and it will put a smile on your face and if it doesn t appeal to you check out youtube for A street Cat named Bob and fall in love with a cute kitty.

    One of the good things about this book is that the cat doesn t die All the best stories about beloved animals end w the inevitable, and, while I know all sweet pets die, I d just rather they didn t do it in their own book Another really good thing is that Bob is a real cat I know that because I liked his Facebook page, which is totally current, and watched some videos of him on YouTube, and even saw him and James on the Today Show Yes, I know, if some people believe the moon landing was faked, one could believe this was all photo shopped or whatever, but I m a believerin moon landings AND Bob At first, I DID think maybe this was just another A Million Little Pieces about a dysfunctional, depressed, drug dependent soul, who also told a good story but played pretty loose w the facts, and oh, by the way, had a cata very remarkable cat, but still But no, it really happened and because it happened, two very sad lives got much better Good things still seem to be happening to James and Bob, and that s another of the best things about the book It s not soaring prose or deeply philosophical musings, it just a sweet, amazing story about a sweet man and an amazing cat, and that s the best thing.

    James Bowen is a recovering drug addict living in accommodate housing in London One day he sees a male, ginger cat in the hallway near his flat Last thing he needs is a pet when he is living hand to mouth, but the two take a shine to each other James notices the ginger tom cat is injured He takes it to the local RSPCA for treatment Soon the street cat, who he names Bob, is on the road to recovery Many adventures both good and bad await this inseparable duo This intelligent cat, who saved James s life, would become famous with the locals and tourists He can even be found on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter I m not one for reading biographies, but I sure am glad I read about James and Bob I definitely recommend this book.

    Well I think that James and Bob are kindred spirits I also think that they saved each others lives I have an affinity with cats well all life actually especially animals I have had cats all my life Archimedes is at home now waiting for me to come home I watched the film about Bob and James and although it was a good film as always the book is better What a lovely story The stars were lined up for James when the book publisher approached him that fateful day The rest is history Well done James and Bob too, well done.

    Firstly, as many people have mentioned, this book is not exactly well written, but it is a true and honest account of James Bobs life it isn t romanticised, or dramatised, it is what it is I hear they are making a movie, and I hope they keep this natural account without making it too Hollywood.I have however given it a 4 just for the happy story that it is A story about true companionship, and not only that, but how unique Bob is himself I have had cats all my life, and I am pretty sure none of them would sit with me on the bus, in the street or anywhere other than when they are in a safe haven of home This truly is a unique connection and friendship.It is a story about how love and friendship in whatever form can turn a person or cats life around Bob gave James purpose, and helped him to kick a 10 year habit that he had merely teetered on giving up for good The most heart warming part being James s 48hrs cold turkey from methadone, with Bob comforting him at the worst point licking his face and letting him know he is there The story is obviously about James as much as Bob, his story and how Bob changed the ending to his story And for once a happy story By the end you will be on YouTube looking for videos of Bob I thought I would point out for anyone concerned, James is never using while Bob is in his care, he is already on a recovery programme, he is just stuck in the system, never completing the programme but instead continuing his reliance on methadone At no point are there any concerns for Bobs welfare, he is very happy where he is
