A Curious History of Cats – Madeline Swan

1904435793-01-_sx142_sy224_sclzzzzzzz_This is an interesting compendium of facts about cats through history- starting with their domestication, and on through the years to the present day. There are a number of famous people, both cat lovers and cat haters, mentioned. There are also a number of interesting illustrations (all black and white sadly) of various art work through the ages depicting cats.

It’s not a bad book, but the biggest thing I took away from it is that it seemed like each chapter was one gigantic run on sentence. I mean, they were grouped logically by time period, but there was no flow. I know this isn’t narrative fiction, and I believe I’m willing to cut some slack in that department for non fiction, but this book just seemed like it needed a better editor.
