The cat was poorly when he laid in front of guys hostel the guy had to rally himself take him vets treat his sores then he had to choose between cat food and heroin cut long story this cat brought this guy up to point done degree and film is being made.
it best feel good factor book I ever read..you can see him on YouTube just type in street cat called Bob...

Are you meaning write a short summary/review of a book we are reading that we like? I think this is a good idea!

[ame="http://www.amazon.com/Light-Between-Oceans-Novel-ebook/dp/B0064CL1T2/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1456114935&sr=1-1"]The Light Between Oceans: A Novel - Kindle edition by M.L. Stedman. Literature & Fiction Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51zES0qTvqL.@@AMEPARAM@@51zES0qTvqL[/ame]

It takes place in Australia just after the war and is the story of a returning veteran who gets married and takes a job as a lighthouse keeper on a very remote island on the south western shore. He and his wife are the only people on the island except for a monthly supply boat.
The guy is suffering from what we would now call PTSD and his young wife is devastated when it turns out she can't have children.
Then one day she finds a rowboat washed up on their rocky crag with a dead man in it and a live baby. This is just after she had a horrible miscarriage so she feels compelled to adopt the child and tell everyone it is hers even though the child might have parents somewhere.
Of course there is a mother looking for that child but I won't spoil the ending for you.

Reading Starman there bit about Angie written only from quotes from David and personal friends.David Bowie although did not like bits of this David could do nothing because most of it in public arena?

It is intelligent book and as Bowie says it ch changes when another writer took over .mostly written by Paul trunks
A non Bowie fan could read it get full enjoyment as a Bowie granny groupy

Book Answering Questions About E

I have read many books, but the best one I have found to anwer questions about E is 'EPILEPSY 199 answers' by Andrew Wilner. This is a book written by a doctor and a patient so it really gets into the true facts of E, IMO.
