I'll admit, the idea of a kitty-cat vampire intrigued me. It is why I decided to get this book. I wasn't sure how it would be done, but I really thought it held a large amount of potential.
I was wrong!
Patch, knew too much, understood too much and despite not being able to talk or possessing opposable thumbs, was able to communicate too well with the humans around him.
I am a cat person, always have been and I think I always will be, so I understand that a person can come to understand their cats meows, facial expressions and body language. I truly believe that! What I don't like, however, is that throughout the tale, people who had just met Patch just KNEW what he was trying to say. That was unrealistic.
Now, this annoyance aside, I did enjoy the slightly different vampire 'side-effects' that were explored in this book. Too often vampires are all powerful and have very few weaknesses, aside from the sun.
Some of Patch's outings and excursions were too far fetched and did cause a few eye-rolls.
If you take this book as a bit of a light hearted roll in the hay with vampires, then you will probably enjoy it. If you are a die-hard vamp fan, this book would probably piss you off or annoy you.
Overall, the book was OK. Not great, but not totally lame either.
