Fiction • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This quirky, gentle tale of the friendship between a Japanese man and his beloved pet is told by Nana the cat. The audiobook is more poignant and less ridiculous than it sounds. George Blagden narrates with a quiet formality suitable for this story, translated from Japanese, and especially for the dignified feline's point of view. Blagden portrays Nana's initial disdain at being adopted by Satoru, who provides care when Nana is hit by a car. When Satoru and Nana embark on an adventurous road trip around Japan, Blagden narrates Nana's observations with humor and sarcasm. His occasional delivery of cat sounds is amusing and suitably sparse. When Nana realizes the purpose of his travels with Satoru, his grateful reflections reveal his love for his treasured human.
