Tailchaser's Song

This week I read Tailchaser's Song by Tad Williams. I thought it was an enjoyable read. It's the first fantasy book I've read involving cats.

Anyone else here read it?

Read it when it first came out. It's a lovely book... very nifty and, as I recall, Williams' first novel....

I've read it and then went onto the Shadow one. I liked the mad cat in Tailchaser's Song as a truly memorable character. Its worth reading if you like cats as he does depict them well.

Have read it several times. I have a thing for things feline, books included and this book is one of the best. Tad Williams must have been a cat at some point. It's a very well written book.

I read it too. Very adorable. I'm not actually a cat person, but I still loved it.

Re: Tailchaser's Song

I felt kind of foolish buying a book about cats. But I have read City of Golden Shadows and I liked that one from him, so when I found Tail. I had to buy it. I actually liked it, of course, I love cats a lot too. His story was very good, if a bit myth-cliche, and the way he brought the cats' into a culture of their own was brilliant. I haven't looked at my cats the same since.

I believe that his cats supervised most of the writing.

It's pretty good. Not Tad's best but a nice story.

I hate cats, but do ye think I could still enjoy the book, do you? I am a dog lover and even have a certain fondness fer the wee creatures we call rodents, but cats, well, me thinks that they don't care fer me as well, I'll warrant.
