This book tells us, most amusingly, about his attempts to rewrite everything from classic novels to self-help books. Charlie spares nothing. He finds most books rather dull and so he writes the plots. For example Madame Bovary becomes the tale of two cats, one named Emma at least, and Emma's work in a Bovril factory.
His titles tend to puns and his new plots take some point of the original plot and go off in hilarious directions.
Charlie's rewrites are so outrageous that his owner, Mr. B, feels compelled to straighten us out and, often, apologize to the author, just so the reader won't confuse the real plot with Charlie's.
This book is a delight to enjoy.
The Bleaklisted Books is absolutely brilliant. It is laugh out loud funny. An original and entertaining read on every level. A clever interpretation of novels including classics with a modern twist. Charlie is every bit the calculating cat that the authors claim him to be. I would welcome a sequel perhaps one that is a bleaklist on books turned into film.
However; as I started reading, I couldn't help but smile, then smile wider, then start laughing, and then roll on the floor laughing! For instance, the imagery invoked by "It began with a speech that Charlie made to a vast crowd of 600 million cats. Truth be told, it was just Charlie and his loyal but simpleminded sidekick, Buggles, who were there for the speech but the sense of occasion and the historical significance were certainly not lacking" is perfectly hilarious. As the author mentions in her introduction, "...not ...for those in search of something that makes sense," and this sentence pulls the reader in immediately. What exactly is she talking about? Why doesn't it make sense? These are the questions that arise in the reader's mind, prompting them to read further.
The usage of twisted/modified words provides endless entertainment; the author is clever indeed! For instance, if you transgoose while I'm asleep, you'll not feel my rooth leaves the reader scratching their head in perplexity, while trying to figure out what was just said and smiling widely.
The Bleaklisted Books by David Brown is the author's take on our time tested classics and other popular novels through the ages. A short description of the story, followed by the reason for the `bleaklisting' and then the author's suggestion on what could have happened instead is side-splitting. For instance, the so-called `special instructions' for `Anna Karenina' are: "Sell in all drinking establishments and rename, Anna, Carry Nina."
I love the visuals as well.
To sum up, I enjoyed reading the book tremendously and still chuckle whenever I think about it.
Great effort by David Brown and team.
It’s hard to describe this book because it’s just so unique. I would recommend it to anyone who loves to read, and who wants to view literature from the unique and hilarious perspective of a cat. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
