This is very sad news. I remember being exposed to the "Cat Who" books at a young age via Audiobook, and seeking out the series from there. Those were some fun mysteries.
I loved these books. They were my first "Adult" novels.The cat is very, very sad.
I'm so sorry to hear. My grandpa, who passed away a few years ago, read all the Cat novels, and sent me quite a few, too. I can remember hearing him call me up and saying "Did you get to the part where..?" and how excited he was to share something he loved with me.Cheers to good books that cross generations.
Aww! That's so very sad. I grew up reading her books.
Oh, no! I love those stories!I even have the Cat Who . . . Cookbook. Thought I never made pasties.Maybe I will.
The Cat Who were among my first "adult" books, too. How sad.My word verification:trogicat. (Makes me think tragicat.)
Oh! Such sad news!The Cat Who books were some of my early favorite mysteries. RIP Ms. Jackson and thank you for sharing your words with the rest of us.
Yes, I read that today - I keep wondering what will happen to Qwill and Polly now :(
How sad! I loved The Cat Who books when I was a teenager. So much fun, and such wonderful characters.
I loved these books, especially the old ones. Sad.
:(I remember reading those, right around the time I was figuring out how the adult section of the library worked. Those were fun.Also, the melodramatic part of my brain just went "And the lights go out, one by one," but I'm still in mourning for Madeline L'Engle and Octavia Butler.
I write hard-boiled crime, so naturally I have never, ever read or enjoyed so much as a chapter of Lilian Jackson Braun.Oops. My nose just grew.
So sorry to hear this. I'm currently listening to one of her books on audio. I've always enjoyed her stories so much.MasonThoughts in Progress
I'm another sad Cat... At least we had her among us for a little while.
My mother gave me the first book in the series and I was hooked. I have them all and could never part with them. Looking at my siamese I can't help but think of Koko and Yum Yum.
I've listened to "The Cat Who Said Cheese" and I enjoyed it.
So sad to hear. I love those stories. She will be missed.
Oh, no. Sad news. Her books were fun and she seemed like a lovely and gracious lady. She will be missed.
Sad kitty here too. I was very fortunate to receive a letter from Ms. Braun several years ago and it is something I will treasure always. I have shared her books with my children (who both adored them too) and hope they will keep her legacy alive by passing them along once they have children.
