" This book is as much about Spencer, Iowa and the people who live there as it is about Dewey the cat. The author (a librarian in Spencer) tells of the people in the town and how Dewey affected their lives for the better. She chronicles his life from when he came to the library as an abandoned kitten to his death at age 19. While heartwarming, this isn't a cutsie story about a kitty cat. The town, the librarian, and the cat are all survivors of hard times. An enjoyable read. " said.

" Тази книга е любов и да й направя ревю ще е много трудно. Любителите на котки очакват да е посветена само и единствено на Дюи, а другите биха я погледнали с насмешка, защото смятат, че не биха открили нещо повече от историята на една котка в нея, но… „Дюи – котето от малката провинциална библиотека, което трогна света“ е много повече от историята на една котка и точно това ще се опитам да ви покажа с това ревю.https://bloodyrosered.wordpress.com/2...

"Прекрасен Дюи, благодаря ти, че ме намери <3

Отдавна имах нужда да прочета подобна книга, която да ми напомни, че най-обикновените неща всъщност са най-необикновени. Колко е важно да обичаш безрезервно и без очаквания. Колко е важно да се държим мило с всички, защото не знаем през какви трудности е трябвало да преминат и колко болка са изпитали.

Дюи - макар и на пръв поглед просто едно красиво коте - е наистина много повече от "просто коте". Той е олицетворение на онзи чист детски дух, който ние всички трябва да се стремим да запазим.

Препоръчвам много горещо. Няма да съжалявате.

Усмивки и панди,
Криси

"I’m a lark. At 5.00am in the morning I can read anything. In fact I’m up for a challenge. But as the day wears on I flag. Come 11pm at night my brain is mush, and my bedtime reading has to be easy, soothing and happy. Stodge for the eyes. It has to go down like my favourite pudding.

“Dewey – The small-town library-cat who touched the world” was in this vein. It should have appealed to bedtime me – I am completely besotted with cats, and with libraries for that matter..... but it didn’t. The book was deeply earnest in tone. There were two dissonant threads, firstly, a story about a wonderful cat, and secondly, the story of the sad life (blighted by various tragedies), of the woman who ran the library, and looked after Dewey. This librarian was fantastically brave throughout all her negative experiences, but they pealed like a gong throughout the book. For me her distresses detracted from Dewey’s story. (I know that's an awful thing to say, but they did....)

I was also let down in that Dewey the cat didn’t really come alive for me. There were several occasions where I could have found myself dabbing my eyes with tissues and aww-ing at Dewey’s adorableness, but this didn’t happen. Instead we were given lots of statistics to prove his lovability (e.g. when people were asked to choose a name for him, hundreds responded, and when he died the librarian received more than a thousand emails conveying sympathy), but this was proof from the outside. I wanted proof in my heart, and it never happened. I never experienced Dewey’s wonderfulness for myself. Judging by the statistics, and descriptions of Dewey’s behaviour, he really was a very exceptional cat, loved by many people…but I never really felt it for myself.

I feel a mean and horrible person for not liking this book more. 25,689 people have rated it here at Goodreads (now that is a phenomenal number of people!) with an average rating of 3.77.... but it just didn’t turn me on.

" Този малък сладур не е бил просто котка, той е дарявал хората с любов и поткрепа! Ще ми се да се бях „запознала” с него по-рано...От всяка страница струеше обич! Вече обичам тази книга! <3 " said.

" This book turned out to be about more than a cute cat. I also learned a lot about corn, family farms, farming and small towns, as well as about the author. She tries to stay out of the book, but that is a difficult task. Dewey is an amazing cat and definatley worth reading about. " said.

"Oh, this made me laugh and feel sad at the same time. Having emptied book drops myself, Vicki Myron sure knows how it goes. Nothing surprises me.

But Dewey's tale in Spencer, Iowa sure was something. With human reversals and our sad good-byes, nothing seems to unite as does a savvy beast who understands how to run all of us.

Dewey's legacy, IMHO, is trying to focus on every day kindness to closest and stranger alike, and toward achieving a uniting factor of non-criticism toward the most peaceful people in every place we breath.

"Не знам как се очаква да оцениш нечия истинска история с брой звезди. Нечии премеждия, надежди, обич, загуби и тъгуване - как да им сложиш оценка, като че е поредният художествен роман?

На такива хора като мен не трябва да им е разрешено да се докосват до книги като Дюи. Не си спомням кога за последно съм плакала на книга, но този път ще го запомня, защото тук не говорим за отронването на една или две сълзи.
Дюи (котаракът, не само книгата) е бил топлина и обич, утеха и близост, каквато може да изпитат само хора, които са способни да отдадат сърцето си на една животинка до тях. А когато понякога ти се струва, че това е единствената топлинка и обич, на която можеш да разчиташ, загубата на тази утеха може да бъде съкрушителна. Книгата успя да ми напомни това. Историята е поднесена по начин, който бавно и неусетно те увлича, придърпва те в ежедневието на Спенсър, Айова с всичките му добросърдечни и упорити жители, сред които и гордият и любвеобвилен котарак Дюи Рийдмор Букс, успял да открадне сърцата на толкова много хора, а сега и на читателите на тази книга. <3
