    About "Lilian Jackson Braun"

    1. Lilian Jackson Braun

      Lilian Jackson Braun was an American writer She is well known for her light hearted series of The Cat Who mystery novels The Cat Who books center around the life of former newspaper reporter James Qwilleran, and his two Siamese cats, KoKo and Yum Yum in the fictitious small town of Pickax located in Moose County, 400 miles north of everywhere Although never formally stated in the books, the towns, counties and lifestyles described in the series are generally accepted to be a modeled after Bad Axe, Michigan located in the Michigan Thumb where she resided with her husband for many years until the mid 1980 s Many also believe that the culture and history of the Upper peninsula of Michigan are represented in the series as well, which is quite possible as it is indeed a fictitious location.Lilian Jackson Braun began her writing career as a teenager, contributing sports poetry for the Detroit News She later began working as an advertising copywriter for many of Detroit s department stores After that stint, she worked at the Detroit Free Press as the Good Living editor for 30 years She retired from the Free Press in 1978.Between 1966 and 1968, she published three novels to critical acclaim The Cat Who Could Read Backwards, The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern and The Cat Who Turned On and Off In 1966, The New York Times labeled Braun, the new detective of the year The rising mystery author disappeared from the publishing scene for 18 years The blame came from the fact that mystery novels were starting to focus on sex, violence, and foul language, and Braun s light hearted books were not welcome in this new territory It wasn t until 1986 that the Berkley Publishing Group reintroduced Braun to the public with the publication of an original paperback, The Cat Who Saw Red Within two years, Berkeley released four new novels in paperback and reprinted the three mysteries from the sixties Braun s series became an instant best seller once again In January 2007 the twenty ninth novel in the series, The Cat Who Had 60 Whiskers, was released in hardcover by the Penguin Group.Not much was really known about Braun, as she prefered to keep her private life that way For years, publishers have given inaccurate accounts of her year of birth, which has remained unknown until she openly acknowledged her age in an interview for the Detroit News in January 2005.

    1. BackgroundThe summer after I graduated from college, I started missing regular reading during school, I had less personal choice and recreational reads, as all the college textbooks and novels were the priority. I was an English major and rarely had time for adding in my own particular interests. The last course I had taken was an independent study that one of my professors and I had built the curriculum on together: Murder Mysteries. I learned all about the genres and sub-genres, authors and st [...]


    2. In this second book, Qwilleran is back, now the official owner of the amazing Siamese cat named Koko, whose owner was murdered. This time Jim's beat isr design. Tasked with producing a weekly insert for The Daily Fluxion called, obnoxiously, "Gracious Abodes," Jim attacks the assignment with reluctance - he knows nothing about interior design. But he is soon immersed in design-world intrigue that includes, of course, murder. Again, the mystery here is almost beside the point.This book as funnier [...]


    3. Half way thru the book I realized there was only Koko, and then I realized (after some googling) that this was the second book of The Cat Who series. Now I'll want to read the other two old ones too (already on the queue, and will probably read next). Three of the books were written in 1960s, ( could read backwards in '66, this one in '67, and who turned on and off in '68). Then they resumed in 1980s with a lot of new ones. (Lilian Jackson Brown was apparently born in 1913, still lives and proba [...]


    4. I treasure books featuring cats. I’m thrilled Lilian Jackson Braun exceeds by far, novels that depict but barely mention them. Better than that, her hero Jim Qwilleran’s routine with them is presented the most realistically I’ve ever seen. You see the minute he arrives home, he checks for his young ones. He may exclaim at evidence of what they’ve done, which is truly the way it goes, sees to their needs, but a real animal person lives with them. You don’t drop off food and forget they [...]


    5. The second of the Cat Who books is as satisfying as the first and third, with a real plot, a real mystery, and real heroics. Enjoy the first three books and then ask yourself: what happened with the rest of the series?


    6. Once again, I'd been on the hunt for a murder mystery that would be engaging, but lighthearted; as soon as I saw the title of the series, I thought This has got to be it. A retired detective who solves mysteries with his cat? My imagination was already whirling with the possibilities for whimsy and mischief. Does the cat talk? Maybe paw at crime-scene photos? Will the protagonist wander around with the cat trailing behind him, watching his flexible little tail for signs of vibration to indicate [...]


    7. Lilian Jackson Braun's "Cat Who" series is a perennial favorite of mine. I read my first ones at about age twenty five or thirty years ago, and have been hooked on them since. My Mom and I read them at the same time and thoroughly enjoyed them. She's gone now, but she was an amazing reader and it was fun to share things we both liked together. In fact, the day she died, she had been to the library that morning. Came home and she was gone. My poor dad. They're all fairly quick reads, nicely paced [...]


    8. 4 StarsI just love this series so much! This was a cute book and I even though I knew whodunit, it was still very enjoyable.


    9. 'Gracious Abodes', the newspaper Daily Fluxion's new interior design magazine, opens up a new horizon and a new assignment for Jim Quilleran, and a new mystery for fans of Koko the psychic cat. The dictionary is Koko's Ouija board and his claws are his planchette. Jim takes the hints from Koko's dictionary suggestions after the murder of a rich woman, whose house was featured in Jim's magazine, and he is soon following up clues. G. Verning Tait, besides the loss of his wife to an apparent heart [...]


    10. Poor Koko's eating wool, and Qwill's at his wit's end. A Pyscatricist recommends a female companion, but first the pair have to solve a murder and a theft. In traditional Lilian Jackson Braun style, all the clues add up and the finger is pointed at the character you least suspect.I enjoy this one because YumYum is first introduced, and she is in need of rescuing, in a way. I like that he's still writing for the Fluxion, and going to the press club. He hasn't inherited his millions yet, and Koko [...]


    11. Somewhat entertaining, but the book began to lose my interest half way through. I was expecting more humor/wit at that point, and noticed that the reading just seemed to present a similar tone throught. The climax for me just wasn't so climatic; it's been under a month and I must say, the ending was not interesting enough to have stuck with me, I can't for the life of me recall it, but I do recall it was nothing quite catching or humorous.After reading other ratings, perhaps these books are bett [...]


    12. There was one passage in this book where Qwilleran sees a couple decorative eggs in a shop and notes how expensive they are. Each one costs $5. For some people, that may still be a great deal of money, but you couldn't buy a new copy of this book in paperback for $5 now. In 1967, the average paperback was about 75 cents. I wasn't alive when the book was written, but it sure does remind me of just how much things have changed since I was little, and in some ways, it just really amuses me. It make [...]


    13. Really enjoying this cute new mystery series! That's probably a good thing, seeing as there's about a hundred books in the series! :)


    14. Qwill is "promoted" to head of a new magazine focusing on interior decorating. After featuring the 1st mansion, there is a theft; after the 2nd feature an upscale apartment, there is a murder. Qwill and Koko investigate. Also, Koko gets a female playmate named Yum Yum. It was entertaining and sometimes laugh out loud funny.you will enjoy meeting Natalie Noyton, She has all eh gagging appeal of a marshmallow sundae."Koko arrived at the party his entrance, the noise swelled to a crescendo and then [...]


    15. Lilian Jackson Braun's "Cat Who" series is a perennial favorite of mine. I read my first one at about age ten or eleven, and have been hooked on them since. It's been a while since I last cracked the cover of any of them, but the Library I work for recently purchased some new copies of many of the titles in the series due to an upsurge in interest among our patrons, so I thought I'd read a few again. They're all fairly quick reads, nicely paced whodunnits featuring a mustachioed former crime rep [...]



    16. Hop in my time machine back to 1967. A place where you don't have cell phones, the internet, and it's perfectly acceptable to smoke a pipe. People stillread newspapers to get their news. Meet Jim Qwilleran, old-time investigative reporter now taking on the interior designer beat. Meet Koko, Siamese cat and crime fighter. Together they stick their noses where they don't belong and save the day. And in the end, they bring pretty lady Yum Yum into the family and everyone is happy.These books are da [...]


    17. This installment finds Jim Qwilleran taking over the interior design beat at the Daily Fluxion. The paper wants to publish a weekly supplement with feature stories and lots of photos. Jim had done such a good job on the Art beat (previous book) that the Editor promotes Jim from Senior Writer to Junior Editor for this assignment. The trouble starts right after the release of the first edition. The house they had featured reports a burglary and the wife is dead. Jim smells something fishy but pres [...]


    18. Once again Koko, the amazing Siamese cat, helps newspaper reporter James Qwilleran solve a crimet just one, but two murders. This time Qwilleran, having being stuck doing art features, is moved to the decorating department as the editor of “Gracious Abodes”a supplement magazine in the Fluxion’s Sunday paper intended to bring in more readers and to pull in some big advertising dollars. Koko knows just what clues to send to Qwilleran in order for all to be right once again in his world. Yum [...]


    19. Another fun flashback read now Qwilleran has a girlfriend (half his age) and both Koko and Yum Yum. Such clever cats - always catching the criminal. The stories are great and the characters are enjoyable, likable people. I love the little old-fashioned bits. When Qwill comes home to see the red light on the phone is lit up - he has to call the operator for a message! He also complains about how computers are ruining the newspaper profession, but then his big beef with the young journalists doing [...]


    20. Here we go following Qwill and Koko and their adventures, and they solve another mistery :)As in the 1st book, there's no bloody details or forensic stuff, and it's nice to just have a book where you learn a lot about Siamese cats (specially if you love cats) while the 2 main caracters try to solve a crime. I felt, as in the 1st book, that the plot is a little thin/weak, but we aren't suposed to be expecting a great work of literature, just a cozy reading!I'm anxious for the 3rd book where we're [...]


    21. The paperback I read said the original publish date was 1967, which I either didn't know or forgot since I first came across this series in the 80's. Fifty years ago is a world away and would explain the genial Qwilleran's casual chauvinism and the references to Orientals, Negroes and girls. Anyway, I enjoyed these books for many years and as I am going through knee replacement rehab, I am finding them a sort of comfort food. The story is cute and when Qwill isn't being too smug or commenting on [...]


    22. Close to the end of the book, I found out that it was a Danish Modern Chair which Koko was 'snacking' on. It was upholstered with Danish wool.I had to keep remembering that this took place in the late '60s while reading it. A lot of artsy people were making their mark through furniture making and interior design. And threw some wild parties!I wanted to read this, and the next, to find out when Qwilleran & Koko welcome Yum Yum to their family.Another great mystery, another crime solved by an [...]


    23. I love this series. I'm on my second read through - in order this time. This book is one of my favourites. As with all the others it is a simple fun read. Just love the characters - such a colourful bunch. Especially love the authors descriptions of the cats - they come alive in your minds eye. If you're looking for a bit of relaxed reading pick up this series and spend some time with Jim Qwilleran (without the u) and his two siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum.


    24. probably a 3 1/2 star, but a comforting follow-up to the debut book in this series. unpretentious and doesn't try to stretch beyond it's limits, and I found it to be a little better written than I was expecting. some character development sacrificed for the sake of plot but so what, Christie built a legendary career using the same technique.a perfectly acceptable form of the cozy mystery.


    25. This is a very early book in this series. The characters had not been developed very much at this point. There was only one cat at the beginning of the book, and Yum Yum was added at the end of the book. I have read many of these books, and so I missed a lot of the things that were added in later books. I'm glad I found this early book, just to see the beginnings of the series.


    26. Spending a little of the summer with old friends. This is the second Cat Who book, and we are introduced to the third member of the Qwilleran family, Yum Yum. The language is beautiful and the pace is leisurely.


    27. The 2nd book of the Cat Who series. I've read 3 of this series so far and just can't get in to them. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am allergic to cats and just don't think they are all that cute. The story surrounds the very rich and their eccentric interior designers.


    28. Another Qwilleran and his cat Koko mystery. This one has Jack writing for the paper on interior designs. Of burglary and death occurs after a house is featured in the paper. With the help of Koko of course the mystery will be solved.


    29. These books are quite transparent in that they are obviously neat and tidy detective stories written by a crazy cat lady. Also they are completely addictive! And cute! I'm probably going to end up reading the whole series because they are light and fun reads.
