Gary Brandner (author of The Howling, the book, not the movie loosely based on his book) has the thankless task of adapting into novel form the 1982 movie with Nastassja Kinski and Malcolm McDowell. Cat People itself is a remake of a highly regarded film from the 40s so hes making an adaptation of an adaptation - not an easy task. As such the book is only mildly interesting but it does give a little more insight into the story and characters who at times behave in a rather romance novel fashion. The story sticks pretty close to the movie except for a few extended scenes and one part in particular where Irena (the cat woman) visits a pet store and causes all the birds to panic, a scene from the original 1940s movie but not in the 1982 remake.
