My rating: 4/5
Goodreads rating: 4.22/5
Published: 1/1/2014
Author: James Bowen
Genre: Memoir

December's Book Challenge:
1. TBNT Book Challenge: A book that has been adapted for the screen OR a screenplay / theatrical play

I've had this book in my TBR pile like for aeons so I'm glad to finally reading it! Unfortunately, Bob has also recently passed away so it is only apt that I read it now.
Street Cat Bob and James, stars of bestselling A Street Cat Named Bob and The World According to Bob that touched millions around the world, spend a cold and challenging December on the streets together in a new adventure. From the day James rescued a street cat abandoned in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, they began a friendship which has transformed both their lives and, through the bestselling books A STREET CAT NAMED BOB and THE WORLD ACCORDING TO BOB, touched millions around the world. In this new story of their journey together, James looks back at the last Christmas they spent scraping a living on the streets and how Bob helped him through one of his toughest times - providing strength, friendship and inspiration but also teaching him important lessons about the true meaning of Christmas along the way.
I’ve enjoyed James journey with Bob in this lovely memoir. It’s sincere and truthful, capturing the essence of their friendship wholeheartedly! Now I did wished I have read it earlier but then everything happens for a reason, right?! 

Anyway, this book is so endearingly honest and an easy read to boot. Aside from Bob, James has also shared his gratitude to his customers and friends who have supported him through it all from the moment he was clean, no judgement, just caring people. It is so nice to know that there are still so many nice people on Earth! This has definitely been an eye-opening read for me especially from the point of view of someone who was homeless before. 

Thank you, Bob, for saving James.
Thank you, James, for this lovely memoir.
Now to look for the rest of the books!
