Adventures of a Cat-Whiskered Girl

Adventures of a Cat-Whiskered GirlAdventures of a Cat-Whiskered Girl Daniel Pinkwater

Big Audrey is from another plane of existence. You can tell, because she has cat whiskers. She makes her way to Poughkeepsie where she finds a job and place to stay at a bookstore devoted to UFOs. The owners think she's an alien and she doesn't correct them. While in Poughkeepsie there are several adventures featuring real aliens, hops to other planes of existence, giants, and a mystery from the past.

It's very episodic and very weird and nutty, often just for the sake of being weird and nutty, and it just didn't do anything for me. I tend not to enjoy highly episodic plots anyway and the weird nuttiness never gelled into something for me. I kept reading to see where it was going and when it finally got there... eh.

This is one of the those books though, where it wasn't the book, it was the reader. I think the right reader will find this to be the most brilliant thing ever written and enjoy it thoroughly. I just wasn't the reader for this book.
