I'm so grateful that Gwen Cooper did a follow-up for Homer and his story. As a grief counselor, I appreciated her generosity in writing about that difficult time, mostly, in my opinion, to support her fans in their grief for Homer. Gwen is a very generous person through the different charities and work that helps to save animals and any work that is published just serves to education and enlighten even more people in this regard. I have personally found her to be generous in spirit as well. When we have met in person, she took time to chat with my niece who is a HUGE fan and budding writer. It's a unique day we will cherish forever! And now we both have this book and cherish this as well.
So glad I read this sequel; it filled in the locations of the first Homer book and gave an in-depth view of all events. More importantly, I gained insight and better understanding while reading about Homer's latest months and days as I am going through the exact same scenario with my eldest cat, Monster. Such a heart breaking experience that only animal lovers truly understand. But the peace and love that Gwen provides in her description of her relationship with Homer is a real blessing and lets me know I am not alone and can search a method to move through the pending loss. Love you always Gwen and Homer.
[Some potential spoilers I guess]As someone who was touched by all of the stories encapsulated in Homer's Odyssey, finding the short sequel available was exciting. Having raised a lot of cats in my life, the first Homer novel provided a lot of laughs and tears as it brought up multiple memories of my own furry friends. One part of Homer's story was missing though, his twilight years. Gwen opens up about the whirlwind that surrounded the release of her first book, all of the joys and frustrations going on behind the scenes that we couldn't have experienced. Then, she truly starts to lay herself bare. However it's not just the story of what it's like as a pet owner to see your furred loved ones age and create decisions... it's their stories. While Homer is definitely the star, Vashti and Scarlett's stories brought out various memories and empathy as well.I think that for any pet owner who plans on having more than one pet, this follow up to Homer's Odyssey is a must have. Gwen approaches the hardest dilemma of being a pet owner with honesty and grace. Not only that, but she provides a very comforting view of how to approach a future with fresh furry friends. She pays homage to her unbelievable mate Homer who affected countless lives.
Gwen Cooper's follow up to Homer's Odyssey is a lot about the process/struggle she (and Homer) went through to obtain the first book published. It is also the continuation of this love story between Homer and his human. Gwen is a amazing writer and storyteller. I knew before I purchased this book from the title that at some point I would need the tissues--and I was correct. Nine lives is never enough with a cat. There is a part where Gwen takes Homer to the vet that is both heartbreaking and hilarious. That is quite the combination. Read the book and I think you'll understand what I mean.
This is a funny and heart-warming book that will inspire both cat lovers and aspiring authors alike. Not only does Gwen Cooper reveal behind-the-scenes anecdotes of Homer's rise to fame, but she shares her struggles of finding a publisher who'd believe in the appeal of her and Homer's story. After a barrage of rejections,the first Homer book, Homer's Odyssey, became a best-seller, published in a lot of various languages. This self-published sequel includes more humorous Homer anecdotes, as well as info of his sad passing. Cooper also shares stories about her other cats-- and Homer's buddies-- Scarlett and Vashti, and her newest furbabies, Clayton and Fanny. She maintains Homer's Fb page to support other "special" kitties in need of permanent families. A quick, concise, and meaningful read!
I enjoyed the first book to the extreme, well written and very exciting also very true when describing kitty antics. I kind knew going in that the 9th life would be about his demise, so I was sad, can't support it. But I am a devoted Gwen Cooper and Homer fan. I loved Homer & her early portrayl of the delicate method she handeled this unique cat rings so real to cat owners & lovers. There was no method I wasn't going to buy the book.
I loved Gwen Cooper's "Homer's Odyssey" and, like many, felt like Homer was one of my own pets. I laughed and cried with Gwen at Homer's exploits. It was one of the most joy-filled books I'd ever read, covering the first 12 years of Homer's life with cause of Homer, I found that I was no longer afraid to work with visually impaired cats at the animal shelter where I volunteered. I even adopted one myself, Teddy, because of Homer.And then Homer died. Like many, I grieved desperately for the little blind cat who had lived such a love-filled life.When Gwen Cooper decided to publish this slim book that talked about not only the latest four years of Homer's life but how people like me started sharing their stories of adopting unique needs cats because of Homer, and how "Homer's Heroes" raised funds to support in disasters, search homes for animals at shelters local to them and more, I was one of the first in line to buy it. With the same gentle amazing humor, Gwen took us through those latest years with Homer, including the heart-wrenching day she knew she had to say goodbye to owing that Homer's story didn't really end with him was a balm to Cooper's soul, and thus this book is the same for those of us who loved him. Highly recommended.
Not good app, can't log into my account. Application prompts for the year verification then loops back to the begin again. It's obvious it's a poor application since 51 one star reviews vs. 70 five star reviews. You can't use the application to teach your kid if you can't log into the account.
Please unsubscribe me and stop charging me. I have uninstalled and emailed a lot of times. Thank you. My daughter has outgrown this now. It was great, but now I can't obtain you to stop charging me. I am no longer using,
My small one is learning her ABCs, this application really reinforces the alphabet for her. It teaches her how to distinguish letters from numbers and shapes as well as pronunciation. Amazing app! She gives it 5 stars and so do I!
It's a amazing program if it would work. I've downloaded it on multiple devices and it continues to crash. I've contacted help a lot of times and it still won't work. Disappointing because my daughter actually likes it.
I cancelled my subscription almost immediately after signing up 2 months ago. I opened my paypal to see that I have been charged two months. I did sign up for the free trial but after playing around I’m the application the same hour, I cancelled it. I read other reviews stating this happened (continuing to be charged after cancelling) and just knew their was no method a company could obtain away with that. It’s fraud. THEN do not test locating a contact number. It does not exist!
I love the application its working well for my son however I cant download the application onto my computer to create it just a click away. slightly frustrating. we do have fun the application though through my phone and I can use the www service when he is using my computer so no true complaint I guess :) well worth the subscription fee.
I am using Android device 7.1.1 the application got stuck after it took me through couple of screens. Unless such bugs are fixed, it's not worth to pay for the service. Otherwise in general my child was starting to have fun the few bug free mins
After setting up accounts, passwords, personalization, private info, and other time wasting including a subscription which I later had to cancel, the application is broken. On the first lesson. I am here to tell you to save your time and not install this app.
Amazing application for my 3 year old, however about 1 day after my 30 day trial was over and i was billed (which i had no issue with) the application kept crashing orwould begin to a completely blank screen. Newer tablet, lots of memory zone and no other apps begin at the same time. Shame sincemyson really loved this application and its content
My children totally love this app. They love it so much that we bought both of them Samsung tablets just so they could play this app. I have a 5 year old that's autistic and this application has just really helped and encouraged him. Unfortunately, the application constantly crashes. They can't play for 10 mins without me having to restart the application because it crashed. Very frustrating, please help! We pay 20 dollars a month through southwestern advantage for an application we can't use.
My daughter loves this app. She spends an hour a day because she wants to and is doing much better learning from this application than at school. It teaches language in depth and letter placement, website words, stories. We love it and will continue to use it
I love this app, but my toddler isn't onboard. She loves to play, sing, and explore. I think when my kid is closer to the age of 4 I will give this app another try. It would create getting dressed for work and making dinner so much easy. I did the "a" lesson myself, then reiterated it to my daugher using true objects (like apples and huge chop outs of the objects used in the video). Overall" it doesn't damage to give Homer a test so begin with a trail first.
I overall like the application and so does my daughter but my only problem I have is it glitches on the learn to read section and looses sound and I have to reset it to obtain it to work again. Other than that it's a amazing application
I really loved this application for the first month or so. My four year old daughter was making noticeable improvements. Then I started to have technical problems with the app, rendering it useless. I tried contacting Homer and their response was not at all helpful, so I've canceled my subscription and purchased a Leap Pad instead.
