If you’ve ever watched Simon’s Cat on YouTube then you should know what to expect here. It’s basically a collection of different drawings of Simon’s Cat getting up to no good, but because there are no words and no dialogue, sometimes it takes you a while to figure out what’s actually being depicted.
I actually didn’t enjoy this as much as I thought I would, which is kind of a shame. A lot of the cartoons didn’t really relate to my own cat and so it wasn’t always relatable, and by the time I reached the end of it there were only two of the cartoons that I took photos of because they reminded me of Biggie. Still, it was cute enough, despite the fact that it’s kind of pricey for what it is. I don’t think I’d recommend buying a brand new copy, especially at today’s prices, but if you can pick it up second hand then why not?
Really, though, I would have liked to have seen some sort of dialogue, some words that I could read instead of just pictures to look at. As it is, it’s really something that you just flick through in twenty minutes or so and then you’re done with it. And to be honest, it was kinda dull after the first five. So yeah.
