David Michie | Fiction
This is the third book in David Michie's trilogy about Buddhism through the eyes of the cat adopted by the Dali Lama. (No, you didn’t miss the second one – turns out my library didn’t have it. I just requested it.) His Holiness’s Cat (HHC), aka Rinpoche, Little Sister, Snow Lion and other names, is delightful! Smart, articulate, able to read and understand human conversation, she allows us to see Buddhism through her innocent and curious eyes. These short novels are really fun! If I were to subtitle this book, it would be, The Power of Meow; In Which HHC Learns to Meditate.
HHC never reveals the name of celebrities who meet with the Dalai Lama, but in this book, we meet the CEO of an American social-media company, the name of which rhymes with “litter.” Ha ha ha.
These are quick, enjoyable, fun and enlightening reads! However, read The Dalai Lama’s Cat first, the initial book in the trilogy, so you learn how HHC came to be the meowing voice of Buddhism principles.
