  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


It's hard to rate this book. There were parts I absolutely loved, and others I found uninteresting or unimportant. I love the voice of Tiger the Tabby!

It stikes me as a very Japanese book. There's something about Japanese literature that is very matter of fact, despite fantadtical elements, and I love that. 

I do wish the cat had played an even larger role, and I personally found the romance misplaced. 

All in all a mostly enjoyable book though!
