    2. Adoro i gatti Era quindi impossibile che non mi piacesse questo libro che ha come protagonisti due simpatici maomi gattini pechinesi Soia e Tofu.Spesso mi ritrovo a pensare che se potessi rinascere e potessi scegliere , vorrei essere un gatto, ma purtroppo non sempre la vita di un gatto fortunataLa piccola Tofu, ad esempio, nata in un bidone della spazzatura e spesso la sua mamma non aveva abbastanza latte per lei e i suoi fratellini anche se poi la fortuna gira, si sa.Vorrei essere come uno dei [...]


    3. 3.5 starsTold in the perspective of two adopted cats, Soyabean and Tofu, this book is very easy to enjoy It may be a bit weird that the animals can understand human language while us, humans, are left clueless when it comes to animals But overall I think this book is very funny and easy to read The relationship between Soyabean and Tofu resembles human relationship, specifically siblings The older sibling is the one who likes to brag about how brave and experienced he is, while the younger sibli [...]


    4. A clever, witty look at group hysteria and governmental inepitude Although set in Beijing, it speaks sharply to man s foibles no matter his nationality I highly recommend it.



    5. Questo romanzo il dolcissimo racconto delle avventure di due micetti, Soia e Tofu, viste dal loro punto di vista.Gi inizialmente ci troviamo di fronte a due realt all opposto nelle quali vivono i due gatti Soia abita con la sua nai nai e mamma gatta, Tofu al contrario una randagia e vive in un bidone della spazzatura insieme alla madre e i fratelli Entrambi vengono adottati da Mr e Mrs A ed iniziano cos a vivere una vita molto agiata essendo la famiglia ricca rispetto al resto della popolazione [...]


    6. Interesting story about Chinese politics and culture as they prepared for the Beijing Olympics from the point of view of two cats.


    7. Questa storia racconta la storia di due gattini il primo, Soia, nato da una famiglia di razza e ha un bel pelo fulvo, non gli manca il cibo, viene istruito dalla mamma sul quello che il Mondo, ovvero il mondo degli umani e il suo sogno quello di acchiappare una libellula Tofu invece una gattina nera, nata in un bidone da una famiglia di gatti randagi I due gattini vengono adottati da due signori waiguo ren, ovvero stranieri e non cinesi Soia viene ingaggiato per fare la pubblicit di un cibo per [...]


    8. Tofu and Soybean are two kittens adopted by a foreign couple living in Beijing in a year leading up to the Olympics The building of the Stadium comes into the story The story follows Tofu and Soybean for the first year of their lives and through their eyes readers get a feel for what life is like in Beijing for average citizens, the plight of migrant workers, the panic that can spread because of a virus in such a crowded city, and the consequences of corruption.This was a spur of the moment purc [...]


    9. I wasn t sure what to expect going into this novel other that knowing it was narrated by 2 cats who live in Beijing I was thought might be a pleasant change from all the stories I ve read that were told from a dog s perspective.The 2 cats are former strays who have lead very different lives prior to be adopted by a foreign couple who named them Soyabean and Tofu Soyabean is a ginger colored, handsome male picture future model for a pet food company He grew up as a stray in a middle class area Li [...]


    10. This book was one of a few books that I finished in one run.I am a Chinese, with Mandarin as my mother tongue and English as my second language So, I tend to mix the two languages when I talked with family and friends.When reading this story, I had not expecting romanized Chinese vocabularies to be thrown in, it made all the conversation so normal and natural to me I really enjoyed it, but I do wonder would it affect other readers who didn t know how to pronounce and or understand what they mean [...]


    11. A light read set over a period including the SARS outbreak and the clash over development of Beijing in preparation for the Olympics and rights of the little people All told from the perspective of two cats.


    12. Venivo da alcune letture pesanti motivo per cui ho apprezzato tantissimo questa storia A dire il vero mi aspettavo quasi un racconto per bambini, invece, oltre alla godibilissima trama, ci sono ottimi spunti per riflessioni di carattere sociale come la povert , lo sfruttamento ed i pregiudizi che troppo spesso affliggono le nostre societ Ovviamente da amante di gatti non ho potuto che adorare Soia, ma soprattutto l introspettiva Tofu Ovviamente il bene trionfa sempre, ma senza cadere nel finto b [...]


    13. If you re looking for a novel that gives details of life in Beijing s hutongs, this isn t for you But if you re looking for a whimsical read that is set in the hutongs and or love books from cats point of view , then you might enjoy it I was disappointed that there weren t details of hutong life But Aiyar does weave in some of the historical goings on of 21st century Beijing the hysteria around the SARS virus I didn t know that some people blamed cats for it , attitudes towards migrant workers [...]


    14. I picked this up from the library due to my interest in everything Chinese This was a really strange read The main characters are two cats that grow up in very different environments in China You do get a sense of daily life in China, but this is a strange way to get that glimpse The writing was ok I wish she had defined some of the Chinese words earlier for the reader For instance Ren means people and she never really defines the word Strange is probably the best way to describe this novel.


    15. I had no idea that there were book written from a cat s perspective until my FIL came home one day and just handed me the book He said I read the description on the inside and I had to buy it He said he was still in the middle of another book so I could go ahead and read it Amazing I loved it I am a big cat person and I found it hilarious as well as touching I teared up, I laughed, I got angry and I am recommending this book to all my cat loving friends


    16. Very hard to choose stars for this The view presented of Chinese society, the writing and character development were all good but the characters were cats I m not fond of animal personification, and this book was no exception Hence I think 2 stars but must credit the author for her writing expertise, which had me reading to the end, when I would have otherwise put the book down after the first few chapters Cover art and illustrations are quite nice


    17. I like cats and I like books about other cultures, but this just didn t work for me I can accept the telling of a story through the eyes of an animal, but these animals were a little TOO personified and it felt weird creepy I would definitely hand this book to a child in late elementary school middle school because it is simple enough and it doesn t have any red flags, but I seriously can t imagine adults enjoying it.


    18. This was a rather easy, light read While there were definitely some heavier topics SARS virus, the Olympic Games and use of low wage labor, tainted pet food, racial privilege and rather emotional points, the overall tone of the book was bright The approach was rather creative, bringing a different perspective on the topics, however the author did anthropomorphize the animals almost to an extreme Still highly enjoyable and a nice refreshing novel.


    19. I believe this should be juvenile fiction 1 Viewing the world through the eyes of cats with human emotions and opinions is a little strange 2 The human and animal rights dilemma in China has NOT improved since the building of the Olympic Village Having a happy ending when there is no happy ending is a little tacky I prefer historical fiction, or even fiction with a taste of history, to be generally accurate.


    20. A nice little book about two young cats living with an expat couple in China Althought it didn t really look like a children s book on the cover, the language and the story line was really for a younger audience The cats were fun, both with very different personalities and yet also very cat like The overall defeating of the bad guys was a fun little scene.Maybe like 3.5 stars.


    21. Picked this up because of my interest in cats and China It is a story narrated by two cats from different backgrounds You do get a glimpse into the class system in China through their eyes and it was a pleasant enough read However, I would have to agree with other reviewers that it is suited to a younger audience middle school, perhaps It was worth my time, though.


    22. I ve never been an animal lover, much the less one of those people who suspends her disbelief so obligingly that she accepts that she s reading an interlocking series of short stories written by two inter related Chinese hutong cats And yetI love the witty and clever way that these cats manage to reveal everyday aspects of Chinese society.


    23. Una bella favola moderna con, sullo sfondo, la nuova e la vecchia Cina gatti domestici e gatti randagi, umani benestanti e lavoratori trattati come animali, stranieri che cominciano ad inserirsi nella quotidianit cinese e nuovi ricchi, arrivisti e senza scrupoli.Viene mobilitato persino il primo ministro, ma solo dopo che un gatto sovrappeso ha scatenato una mezza rivoluzione.


    24. This simply told story is either charming or annoying, depending on whether the reader likes stories told from the point of view of young cats, and punctuation and word usage that is not quite correct English I find the punctuation and usage annoying, but enjoy the cats The plot is somewhat predictable, but this is a nice little book for cat lovers.


    25. Something was missing from this story I love cats I love learning about other cultures ButI can t put my finger on it It was sweet, I did pick up some interesting tidbits about China during the time of the SARS scare It could be shortened and made a kids story maybe I can see it as a picture book.


    26. Instead of a dog narrator we have 2 cats from China during the animal virus scare s epidemics Soyabean and Tofu from totally different backgrounds end up exposing fraudulent cat food con men who are interested in profit than the ill effects of their poisonous cat food I look at my cats totally different now.


    27. Great book for all ages Told by two adopted cats just prior to the Bejing olympics it gives a bit of insight into modern China from a local perspectivewould be a great addition for any young readers.


    28. This is definitely a cute book It IS a book narrated by cats, its certainly no literary masterpiece thatll make you feel intense emotion, it was a rephreshing book for me, it was nice to read something simple and sweet instead of serious and emotional.


    29. A fast, easy, charming, and thought provoking read Set in modern day Beijing, with all its human problems, but told from the perspective of two cats You really come to care for the cats and their Ren humans Highly recommend for an entertaining and quick read.
