Qué gran protagonista la de este libro: Consuelo, una vendedora de pollos en el mercado de la Cebada, a punto de jubilarse. Me ha encantado. Two cats es una novela preciosa para recorrer Madrid junto a la protagonista en busca de la solución al misterio que irrumpe en su vida. ¡¡Y el final!! Hay que leer la novela entera para llegar a las reflexiones finales y cerrar el círculo. Muy buena y divertida.

it's hard for me to describe this book because in the beginning it started out boring to me. but after reviewing the extra content it kind of made sense. i found it scandalous after revealing the true intents of some protagonists which were kept in the dark by the author for a long time. in the end i liked it a lot!

What an amazing story! C.R. Martínez did a great job in history research and wrote a fascinating novel with a good sense of humour. After reading the book the author gives the great opportunity to find out more bizarre facts and see images on www.twocatsandachickenshopmystery.com which I found indeed interesting.
Hope to read more from C.R. Martínez soon!

Dear C., I love your ebook! Reading it was very interesting, I couldn´t even make breaks! I admire how you are able to express things, the coherence is beautiful! Also I am amazed at your knowledge about parapsychology as
well as the Spanish history! The surprising ending of your story convinced me: you are a great writer! I hope for another manuscript written by you!
Good luck! Greetings from Salzburg!

One of the best books I've read recently. Despite its really smart and complex plot, the book is easy and entertaining to read - even for a non-native speaker.
The parapsychological and historical background is extremely well researched and absolutely coherent.
The characters are interesting and seem to be taken out of real life. C.R. Martinez describes their characteristics in an amusing, ironic, yet affectionate way.
The surprising twists eventually make this book a really good and recommendable read.
Enjoy how step by step all the questionmarks in your mind turn into wow-effects.

Reading this book you are in for a treat. Funny and exciting story and a very likable main character. I feel like booking a flight to Madrid right now to follow the plot of "Two cats" and look at the sights with fresh eyes...

I had the pleasure to read the Two Cats and a Chicken Shop Mystery during my Christmas holidays. Without knowing much what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that the story very quickly caught my attention. I also enjoyed reading the language of C.R. Martinez: it was rich in vocabulary and often playful in style. Storytelling went on naturally and tension kept building up. The end of the book is especially well written and one might easily think C.R. Martinez to be a much more experienced author! As a bonus, I got to live in the streets of Madrid and learn a few bits about its history without actually having been there - yet. After reading this book, I'm even keener on visiting the city. When I do, I'll surely keep an eye on any suspicious faces there!

I read “Two cats and a chicken shop mystery” yesterday, and the book managed to catch my full attention from the very first page! For me, the style of the book is a compelling mixture of Dan Brown and Agatha Christie, where the author succeeds to tie in historical facts with an intriguing story. However, C.R. Martinez brings a kind of humor and wittiness to the story that is rare in mystery novels, while still managing to keep the suspension high until the very last page (no, I’m not exaggerating, you’ll see for yourself when you read the book).
The protagonist of the story, Consuelo, takes the reader with her on her quest to solve a mystery, and lets the reader peak into her routines and thoughts.
Reading the book made me want to know more about tabby cats and about Madrid and it’s history, and to visit Madrid and follow the traces of Consuelo and her quest. Don’t miss the opportunity to check out the website with pictures and bizarre facts about the story (http://twocatsandachickenshopmystery.com/2012/12/20/spoiler-alert/) – but do that only AFTER you read the book, or you will rob yourself of an adventurous reading experience.
For those who like mystery novels, this is the perfect reading, and I hope that C.R. Martinez will soon let us participate in another great mystery.
