Having owned a few difficult cats in my time, I have to admit, a lot of what he wrote rang true. As much as I love cats, they do have black little hearts sometimes, and I kept going "uh-huh. I can totally see a supernatural cat doing that!" And I guess it was because of this familiar factor that made this book so hypnotic. The author understands cats, no question about it.
I will say that if you are very squeamish about violence against animals, you might have trouble with this book. I usually fall into this category, but since the cat was doing most of the violence, somehow it didn't seem so bad. Still just a fair warning.
One more think I want to note, is that this book was refreshingly different. No zombies, vampires, serial killers or the like. Just...a cat. An unbelievably terrifying cat! I truly enjoyed it and fully expect to have the cat in this book show up in my nightmares for years to come. The author did a great job.
'The Cat Came Back' isn't a bad story by any stretch. I love horror and I have a very dry sense of humor, so I should've loved this, but it didn't quite hit the mark. The story (obviously, perhaps) features a sort of demonic cat that refuses to die. Darren Johnson is a bloke down on his luck: his wife is gone and he drinks too much. A strange cat enters his life and a kind of bond is formed, however, the cat isn't just your ordinary friendly feline, but something else entirely.
Like I said, there are some great moments of humor in this novella, as well as some gory scenes (the one with the horse, being a favorite). Darren is a bit of a tool, but quite engaging at the same time as a sort of likable loser and the weird cat guy was a good character too. The book is a quick read, so there is no fat attached, it is just a little unremarkable.
I have read a few things by Mr Cash now and enjoyed them. His recent novel 'Pinprick', reviewed here, was a much better offering, as are some of his other works, such as 'Illness' and 'Hell & Sebastian'. All of these books I found to be original, well-written and entertaining. You might disagree and find this to be wonderful, and it isn't bad, its just not brilliant either.
