Braun Lillian Jackson.

The Cat Who Could Read Backwards is the first novel in Lilian Jackson Braun's The Cat Wh. .series, published in 1966. In the first book of the series, the reader is introduced to James Mackintosh Qwilleran (Qwill), a former crime reporter turned newsman on The Daily Fluxion. His first assignment is the art beat where he meets a rather eccentric – and not very well-liked – art critic whom he befriends. He also meets the critic's cat, a Siamese named Kao K'o-Kung, Koko for short.

Praise for Lilian Jackson Braun and the Cat Who series. Upbeat prose and amiable characters. Now on the road to recovery, he manages to land a job as reporter at the Daily Fluxion, where (much to his annoyance) he is assigned to cover a fine arts beat.

Written in 1966, Lilian Jackson Braun’s The Cat Who Could Read Backwards is certainly not the oldest book I’ve ever read, nor is it one of the best books I’ve ever read, but it was unique because of one of the main characters. Koko the Siamese cat, who can read a freshly published newspaper backwards by tracing the letters and who has a knack for uncovering clues that piece together difficult crimes.

The Cat Who Could Read Backwards. Author: Lilian Braun. I understand it's quite a cozy apartment up there. Bruno stopped wiping the bar and gave Qwilleran a significant look. She goes up there to paint the cat!". Bruno called him back. Something else, too, Mr. Qwilleran," he said. I heard about some funny business at the museum. There's a valuable art object missing, and they're hushing it u. Why would they hush it up?". Who knows? A lot of funny things go on at that place.

The history of Lilian Jackson Braun is perhaps as exciting and mysterious as her novels. Between 1966 and 1968, she published three novels to critical acclaim: The Cat Who Could Read Backwards, The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern, and The Cat Who Turned On and Off. In 1966, the New York Times labeled Braun, the new detective of the year. It wasn’t until 1986 that Berkley Publishing Group reintroduced Braun to the public with the publication of an original paperback, The Cat Who Saw Red. Within two years, Berkley released four new novels in paperback and reprinted the three mysteries from the sixties.

I bought this book along with others of the same series by Lilian Jackson Braun. They are in the genre of the cozy murder mystery, combining humour with an entertaining mystery thriller. The central characters are the cats, who turn out to be much more perceptive than their owner in solving his cases. These books are small and compact and easy to read, handy for putting in a pocket or bag for reading on the bus or tube. They are also rather compulsive reading, as there is always the urge just to read the next page

I am so excited to have the books of Lilian Jackson Braun available to purchase on Kindle! I have loved these books since I was first introduced to them some twenty years ago. The characters are fully drawn, lovable and the main characters, Qwilleran, KoKo and Yum Yum are perfect together. I am especially fond of the progression and development of the John Qwilleran's personality, with all its failings, abilities and nuances. He goes from a hard drinking, smoking newspaper writer/has been to a wealthy environmentally aware lovable man over the progression of 29 novels. The characters he meets along the way all affect him in one way or another and he affects them. Ms. Braun wrote a wonderful set of books of which this is the first Come meet KoKo and Qwilleran. Once you do, you'll be spending a lot of time with them and their various adventures. These books address a lot of the issues of the times in which they were written. Kindle doesn't give me enough stars to truly picture how great this series is.

I have read many of Ms Braun's books in the past, but never happened on this first one. It was a short introduction to Qwilleran's move north and his introduction to Koko, the first of his Siamese kitties, and the one who truly helped him solve crimes. The mystery had many twists and turns and introduced the crime solving abilities of the cat and guardian well. I now feel that I want to read the second book to see how the duo becomes a trio and Qwilleran becomes a more established member of the community and a more useful employee of the newspaper. It is fun to start the beginning of a the series that I have enjoyed for many years in the past. I highly recommend it for old time readers like myself and those who have never partaken of Koko and YumYum.

I have the Kindle edition - I have to say that I think this is the best Kindle conversion I've seen - I don't recall any errors on the Kindle.

I really want to own the first five books in Kindle form - this book is #4 in the series, and I have #1 through #3 - I only need #5!

Qwill is trying to lose weight, but it's complicated when he is assigned to write a food columns for the Fluxion. As with all of the early books, he moves into a new place for this story. He meets the woman whom he had planned to marry (but she had run away); she is married, but unhappy - then she vanishes again. Can Qwill find her, with the help of super-smart Koko?

The mysteries of the "Cat Who" stories are so-so; it is Qwill and the cats that make the tales re-readable.

This book has several emotional shocks; one of them is when Qwill comes back from being out of town overnight and being told that his cats are dead. Other pretty shocking things happen on the way to resolving the mystery.

The characters throughout her books are like real people: flawed - Qwill is trying to take off 30 pounds, and is having to deal with needing reading glasses in this book - this kind of thing carries on for Qwill and those around him in the books. While it is true to life, it is someone depressing to be reminded of this in light reading.

Nevertheless, still highly enjoyable.

This book is the first in a series about a reporter and a extraordinary cat who solve mysteries. Jim Qwilleran is was a bull dog crime beat reporter in his glory day, now he's being put out to pasture and forced to work the art columns the Daily Fluxion, a small newspaper. Jim doesn't like the the idea of spending this time taking about art and attending events at the local art galleries. he swallows his pride, and takes an easy assignment interviewing a new artist, which brings him into the art scene. It also ends him under the roof of the city's most hated critic, who is now Jim's landlord. He has a extraordinarily brilliant siamese cat named KoKo, who can literally read backwards. Jim thinks he's got it easy until 's call to murder at a gallery, which leads into a juicier story.

For The first time reading a book by late author, Lillian Jackson Braun. I found a really enjoyed the first mysteries. The characters are great, and it feels like more of a cozy crime mystery, due to the main character being a journalist, I myself have enjoyed cozy and traditional mysteries, because of the lack of profanity and sex scenes, and a lighter tone. So this was great to read. I easily enjoy the characters, the setting, and the mystery itself.
