    1. I LIKE THE CAT WHO BOOKS, ABOUT A WEIRD WEALTHY CATFARMER DUDE AND HIS TWO SIAMESE CATS THOSE BOOKS UNTIL THE SERIES GOES OFF THE RAILS AT THE END.WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE COZY MYSTERY SERIESES, MEME? I'M SICK AND NEED SOMETHING TO READ THAT ISN'T TOO DEMANDINGE CAT WHO SERIES. THE FIRST TEN OR FIFTEEN ARE BEST. THEY'RE OLDER SO THEY'RE KIND OF CASUALLY SEXIST, BUT THEY ARE ALSO EXTREMELY COZY AND HEAVILY FEATURE TWO ASSHOLE SIAMESE CATS.

    2. This whole series is a wonderful fast read with interesting tidbits of non-common information, and some of the main characters are cats

    3. I love these three novels! A great introduction to a fabulous cozy mystery series. This is probably the ninth time I've read these books. What makes me keep coming back?Details! Lilian Jackson Braun knew how to weave her words in a way that would paint pictures showing the reader as well as telling the reader the story of Jim Qwilleran and his feline companions. She also knew her feline behaviors and anyone who loves a cat will be completely taken with her descriptions of the two Siamese and the [...]

    4. Cat Lovers don't miss this!The three short stories were page turners. Liked the detailed character development. Cat lovers who read this will smile as they see the familiar little feline behaviors that occur with Koko and Yum Yum.

    5. *This review is for the first tale in this book only- ' The Cat Who Could Read Backwards'*I read this as part of a group monthly book choice.I have to say I was intrigued by the synopsis as it sounded unusual.In the story we meet the main character Qwilleran who was previously a crime reporter but has just started a new job which sees him mingling with artists and gallery owners.However Qwilleran soon has a mystery on his hand as a gallery owner is murdered and a famous painting stolen but he h [...]

    6. 7/17-22/11The Cat Who Could Read Backwards -- I re-read this book as a tribute to Ms. Braun. It is the introduction to the series, and lays good groundwork for the character development in later books. It's interesting re-reading the first book after reading the rest of the series, knowing what became of the characters puts an interesting spin on reading the initial book. I like Qwilleran and KoKo better in later books, but I still like revisiting and reacquainting myself with them in the beginn [...]

    7. The Cat Who Could Read Backwards: 3 starsFinished 9/24/2013I have finally finished the first book in the 3 book edition. I have to admit that "The Cat Who Could Read Backwards" was a rather slow read. I hope the next two books don't take quite so long to get to the point.The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern: 4 starsFinished 9/25/2013Since I read the second book in less than a day, when it took a month of starting and stopping for the first, it is obvious that I enjoyed the second installment much more [...]

    8. Lilian Jackson Braun was a late-bloomer, which goes to show that age has nothing to doing with creativity! I lent my first omnibus out (the cat who book that started it all for me!) so I just purchased another off . I can't wait to tear into it! I'm working on the complete collection!

    9. I love the whole "Cat Who" series. They are simple, quick reads. These books are part of the genre called the "cozy mystery." Yes, people die, but there is not a lot of details on the blood and gore. It's more about small town life, the people who live there, and the trail to discovering "whodunit." I love cats so Coco and Yum Yum are big hits with me!

    10. I picked up these books because I'd read that Lillian Jackson Braun did most of her novels late in her life -- her seventies and eighties. That was inspiring to me, as a writer, so I wanted to learn more. I found the 'cat who' mysteries to be delightful and entertaining.

    11. What a delightful series :-) Anyone who has ever owned a cat can appreciate these books, especially if that cat is a Siamese! The fact that the story is about a MALE feline-codependant is a nice twist. The mysteries are pretty good too. You can't always figure out "who done it" before the end.

    12. The first three "The Cat Who" books, written in the 60's, these are light mysteries filled with over-the-top stereotypes and caricatures, bland humor, and the worship of cats. They have very little to offer, without enough substance to even qualify as brain candy.

    13. Finished "The Cat Who Turned On and Off". Having read a later book & now gone back to the beginning, I'm glad I did. While each book does stand on its own, it's nice to see how thing progress. Will be taking a little break from these for a while, but looking forward to reading more.

    14. This was my introduction to the series (I inherited a complete set). A fast-paced read with much humor. All three books rolled along pretty well.

    15. I read this book a few years ago while i was still learning English. I think it was q decent read but i dont nderstand why this serie is so famous

    16. I would have given this 3 1/2 stars if able. These are the first three books in the series and definitely lay the groundwork for the rest of the story. If you love Koko and Yum Yum, read these.

    17. The first story starts slowly and is the weakest. Stories two and three were more entertaining and creative. These are quick reads - perfect for a hot, lazy summer afternoon.

    18. I have read almost all of the Cat Whooks plus some that are related. I have enjoyed them more than any others I have read. I think that I am on something like the twentieth book of the series.
