    1. 3.5 stars! This was a quick but sweet read. Alfie's owner passes away and he is swiftly made homeless. In order to never be alone again Alfie becomes a 'doorstep' cat, frequenting several homes on one street so there is always someone to take care of him. Though as time goes on it seems the people of Edgar road need Alfie just as much as he needs them. He helps them with a multitude of sufferings and problems, even at his own expense! A wonderful read for any cat lover who is looking for somethi [...]


    2. I can't rate this book highly enough. Such a range of emotions reading it, I'm not an emotional person but it had me in tears by page 7! It was a delightful book, and 'Alfie' will stay in my mind for a long time. One of those books I'll never forget.


    3. Rachel Wells is een moeder, schrijver en een kattenliefhebber. Ze woont in Devon en gelooft in de magie van dieren. Het was Albert, haar eerste kat uit het asiel, die haar inspireerde tot het schrijven van deze roman, een hartverwarmend verhaal voor iedere kattenliefhebber. Ik vind de omslagfoto schattig, maar ik houd ook van katten. Uiteraard past het prima bij het verhaal aangezien het over een kat gaat. Het verhaal is geschreven vanuit het oogpunt van de kat. Ik heb nog nooit vanuit de oogpun [...]


    4. Tenho dois gatos. Gosto de gatos. Gosto de livros sobre gatos ou com (personagens) gatos. Mas este livro cuja história é narrada por um gato e segundo a perspectiva do próprio gato é muito pateta!



    5. This book has been a very lovely read. It was bought for me as a gift. My partner said he'd saw it and thought of me instantly as we have our very own 'doorstep cat'. It has made me feel differently towards him and what struggles he might have been through. I have been able to relate to this book because of this cat who visits us so it was through ugly enjoyed. I look forward to seeing our furry visitor even more after reading this.I also look forward to being able to share his book with others. [...]


    6. "Not that you ever become completely healed, you understand. There will always be a part of you that is still healing, still hurting, but that becomes a part of your character and you learn to live with it. That's what I think happens, anyway, because that's how it feels to me". Alfie.


    7. Una stella ahimè.Infantile, approssimativo e superficiale.Va bene la fantasia, però c'è un limite a tutto.Recensione completa a breve.


    8. A lovely heartwarming story, with a feline narrator (Alfie). After becoming homeless on the death of his owner, he is forced to live on his wits until he finds another caring owner in Edgar Road, Alfie then moves in with several other residents and after a difficult start, he is taken to the heart of almost everyone who meets him.I enjoyed reading Alfie's thoughts, he is a very insightful and intelligent cat as I soon discovered, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about his adventures. I recommend [...]


    9. Not my usual genre of book, I have to admit, but I loved it nonetheless. I was sceptical at first and reading from Alfie's point of view was unique. I thought the book would be predictable, and at times it was, but I loved how Alfie brought everyone together and helped each one of his owners in their own way. This book is such a nice, easy, good read!



    10. 3,5 stellineDevo dire che sono partita avendo delle aspettative per questo libro basse, ma veramente, veramente basse. Anche perché, diciamocelo, i gatti non sono la mia passione (anzi!)E invece sono stata piacevolmente sorpresa.Certo, non stiamo parlando di un capolavoro, ma nemmeno della c****a colossale che mi immaginavo.Nel complesso questo è un libro molto carico, con un protagonista particolare che, per quanto sia un gatto, ragiona come un uomo. O per meglio dire, a causa della sua esage [...]


    11. Wow, that was sweet and cute. And funny and adorable. I want a kitten.Don't get me wrong, it was a light, not very challenging read but I enjoyed it nevertheless. Though for a "light" book it was surprisingly dark, delving into abusive relationships, postnatal depression, infidelity, alcoholism and domestic violence. I would prefer if the cat didn't understand human language at all, but since he still did whatever he wanted ignoring what they were saying (as a cat should!) that wasn't much of a [...]


    12. Una lectura muy ligera en la que Alfie, un adorable gato, me ha enamorado. sin embargo, y a pesar de ser fácil de leer, se tratan temas serios como el abandono, la inmigración, la soledad, la violencia de género, etc. Me ha gustado muchísimo el libro y estoy deseando que salga la segunda parte.


    13. Hoy os traemos hasta el Blog, El Gato que curaba corazones de Rachel Wells, una historia tierna, divertida y simpática que tiene como protagonista a Alfie algunoslibrosbuenos/gato-c


    14. Loved itAwe I really loved this book. A really sweet and light book to read makes me wonder about my cat and what he gets up to


    15. De auteur heeft dit boek uit het perspectief van Alfie geschreven. Door de mooie, natuurlijke schrijfwijze komt Alfie helemaal tot leven. Hij wordt bijna menselijk met karaktereigenschappen die je ieder mens zou toewensen.Wells krijgt het voor elkaar om dit ietwat sentimentele verhaal meer diepgang te geven door de verkapte boodschappen die er in te vinden zijn. Omdat het door de ogen van de lieve, dappere en slimme kat verteld wordt is het mogelijk om de gebeurtenissen in een gemoedelijke toon [...]



    16. I absolutely loved this! It was a bit predictable, but it was such a fast, fun and heartwarming read, and at the same time it gives us much to think about. And it ended just the way I wanted it to :)


    17. Un libro tierno, emotivo, simpático, protagonizado por un lindo gatito, Alfie, que tras la muerte de su anciana dueña y huyendo de la protectora o "cámara de la muerte de los gatos" llega a parar a una nueva urbanización. Allí decide convertirse en un gato de portal, es decir, repartirse entre varias casas haciendo como que es el gato de la familia que viva allí.Y es así como se convierte en el confidente/amigo/mascota de cuatro casas:- Jonathan, un hombre joven, algo malhumorado, que no [...]


    18. ¡Cómo he disfrutado con este libro! Alfie enamora a cualquiera, su sexto sentido siempre acierta y llena de amor la vida de los demás casi sin darse cuenta. Es capaz de sacar el lado más tierno de las personas y de dar su vida si hicera falta por aquellos a los que considera su familia. El final es conmovedor y palpitante. Sólo Alfie haría algo así por su querida Claire.Ha cambiado mi percepción de los gatos callejeros, aunque soy amante de los gatos, pero los veo ahora con otros ojos.Se [...]


    19. Un relato precioso con un protagonista super mono que poco a poco encuentra varias familias con problemas distintos. Este pequeño felino trabajará duro para ayudar a sus amigos y cuidar de sus seres queridos. Creo firmemente que los animales pueden ablandar y curar los corazones de algunas personas heridas, mientras leía este libro recordé la primera vez que vi a mi dulce gato en la carretera y ahora años después sigue aquí a mi lado como si se mereciera que lo tratasen como un rey y conc [...]


    20. Recensione presente nel blog ragazzainrosso.wordpress1,5 stellineAlfie è un tenero gattino rimasto senza padrone dopo che la sua adorata Margaret è deceduta e i parenti non hanno voluto occuparsi di lui. Alfie, armatosi di coraggio, decide di darsi una seconda possibilità. Intraprende un vagabondaggio per le strade di Londra, tra stenti, fame, cani e gatti malefici. L’intrepido micio non si arrende e giunto in Edgar Road diverrà un “gatto dei portoni”. I brutti avvenimenti recenti gli [...]


    21. A really lovely story, highly recommended. Yes, it's predictable, but it's a lovely plot and a very enjoyable read. Makes me wonder what my cats (one being an ex-stray) get up to during the day!


    22. La storia - narrata interamente dal punto di vista del nostro piccolo protagonista a quattro zampe - comincia quando Alfie rischia di finire in gattile alla morte della sua vecchia padrona Margaret, in quanto la figlia e suo marito non hanno intenzione di occuparsene. Alfie ha sentito cose terribili dei gattili e, in un atto di coraggio, abbandona la casa in cui ha sempre vissuto e tutte le sue abitudini e si mette in cerca di una nuova famiglia. Ma è difficile e ben presto Alfie si renderà co [...]


    23. Questo è uno di quei libri semplici e carini, ma niente di più. Uno di quei libri che galleggia nelle 3 stelline sempre, credo sia l'ideale da leggere nel periodo natalizio, grazie alla sua dolcezza e tenerezza e con questa simpatica voce narrante. Credo che se mi fosse capitato tra le mani in un altro periodo o con un umore diverso, le stelline sarebbero state meno.Questo libro è da leggere con estrema leggerezza, senza pensare ad incongruenze e assurdità. Io non sempre ci sono riuscita a s [...]


    24. When I first started this book I was a bit sceptical of if I would enjoy it. Its the first book I have ever read that is written from a cats point of view! However, I have been plesantly surprised and this book has been a fantastic read and given moments to reflect on different issues and life itself. There are monents of pure heart wrenching reading, to moments of hilarity and to moments where through awful experiences good can come from. It has been a pleasure to read and I woukd highly recomm [...]


    25. What a wonderfully insightful book of cat and human nature. A remarkable read, I could not put it down, I looked forward to coming home and finding time to read this enchanting book. I even cried. Well done Rachel and I so look forward to your next book. You really deliver the fragile yet infinite threads of life. Congratulations.


    26. Ok, firstly a heads-up - this book isn't quite the same as other endearing tales of adorable cats, because it's written as a first person narrative from the cat's perspective. I wasn't expecting this at first and it took a little while to get used to it.Putting aside those initial reservations, this is quite an enjoyable tale (tail?) of a cat whose elderly owner dies, so he finds himself at a loose end none of the owner's relatives are interested in taking him on, so he sets off on his own littl [...]


    27. Alfie ve como su mundo se desmorona de un día a otro.
