The Cat's Table by Michael Ondaatje
The Cat's Table

billowen_97365, January 19, 2012

For me, this is Michael Ondaatje's best work since the The English Patient. I was not sure a story about a teenaged boy traveling unaccompanied by boat to England would hold my interest, but, once again, Ondaatje's creation of imaginative characters, and his beautiful use of our language, created a story that quickly turned into a "can't put down" page burner. I quickly became engrossed, which made the impact of the book that much more enthralling.
