Earlier this year, I shared a review of Hyperbole and a Half, a graphic novel based on a blog I loved when I was younger. So when I found How to Tell If Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You in the graphic novel section at my library, I figured… why not? I loved The Oatmeal when I was in college, so I might as well see what this graphic novel was like.
And… it’s fine, I guess.
Is it much more than cute? Not really.
A lot of the comics made me laugh out loud. Some made me cringe a little. Others (like the cats at work) started out cute but went on too long.
This is a quick and entertaining book that would probably make any cat owner smile, but I don’t know if I can really recommend buying it.
Have you read Technically, You Started It? Can you recommend any similar books?
Let’s talk in the comments!
