First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - The Traveling Cat Chronicles; Hiro Arikawa


Each Tuesday, Vicki, from I’d Rather Be At The Beach hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where  readers post the opening paragraph (sometime two) of a book that they are reading or plan to read.

Berkley - 2017 (277 pps)
(translated from the Japanese by Philip Gabriel)


Prologue
The Cat With No Name

"I am a cat. As yet, I have no name.  There's a famous cat in our country who once made this very statement.

I have no clue how great the cat was, but at least when it comes to having a name I got there first.  Whether I like my name is another matter, since it glaringly doesn't fit my gender, me being male and all. I was given it about five years ago--around the time I came of age."

What do you think? Pass or read a bit more? I'm enjoying it so far.

  1. Too bad, as a cat I'd pass on that one. Pass on a howdy to Lucy and Ricky!
