A Golfer's Tail: The Quest for the Double Slam
3 journalers for this copy...
Received this from the author for review.
I was out of labels, so generous BookCrosser authorauthor gave me some of hers, which she had already partially filled out. That's fine; we can share the credit. :)

This is the story of a feline golfer and his quest for the double slam: wins at the all the major golf tournaments, senior and regular, in one year. I'll say up front that I neither know nor care a lick about golf, but I've found that you don't always have to be a sports fan to enjoy a sports story. Unfortunately, I don't think that's the case here. While the cat-related quips were somewhat entertaining, such as the importance of tail dynamics, the rest of the book consisted play-by-play descriptions of each golf tournament. I found it to be a somewhat exhausting laundry list of birdies, pars, eagles, and bogeys, occasionally punctuated by the crowd going "wild" and/or a "feeling of calm" settling over Roscoe. That said, I'm sure it would be very interesting to an avid golfer. However, between that and the cringe-inducing Japanese stereotype serving as Roscoe's main adversary, it took me a very long time to finish this slim novel. If you're a huge fan of both golf and cats, this may well be the book for you. It's just not the book for me.

Picked this up when I travelled to Baltimore because of some family matters. I was able to sneak away to get to The Book Thing and then to a BCinDC meetup. What great fun and what great BookCrossers!.
Will take it back to South Carolina to continue its journey.
Here's a bit of a BookCrossing puzzle, though. The book is registered by myledia, but the bookplate inside says authorauthor. Is she the author? Cool! (I mean, I know she is an author, but didn't know she wrote this one, too!

I'd hoped to give this to Kiptrix, who is a golfer, but she didn't make our meetup at Panera Bread in North Charleston today, so I took it back home with me.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Bringing this to meetup with me after the Friends of the Library Book Sale at Gaillard Auditorium. If no one is interested in taking it from the meetup, I'll probably take it home to wild release later, or maybe to RABCK to someone. Either way, don't look for it at Saffron after tomorrow evening

I apologize for not journaling this book after I took it home from the November meeting. Forgot it was in my BC bag.
