I read Nalas World in one sitting not able to put it down. Not only is this an incredible story of the love between man and animal it is a story of hope and optimism for the human race. There is so much evil and animal abuse worldwide, that it is inspiring to read about one mans care and concern for a stray cat. And not only for Nala, but for the abandoned stray dogs whose lives he saved along the road and for all the animal shelters he is contributing funds to through this incredible journey. The narrative is entertaining and would have made an excellent travelogue anyway, even without Nala but with her, it is truly exceptional! Getting to know the locals of various countries and seeing how those with the very least offer the most to strangers is a lesson only learnt through travel. As a cat owner myself, I especially appreciate the keen insight Dean has into the feline character. The descriptions of Nalas behaviour and reactions are very realistic! No less are Deans insights and appreciation of the culture and people of the many nations that he encountered along the way, including an eye-opening account of meeting the inhabitants of a Greek refugee camp. I was particularly moved by the description of his rescue of the abandoned puppy, Ghost. It is sad that Ghost never made it but he had a few happy months, due to Dean saving his life. How wonderful to know there are still people out there like Dean Nicholson! The vets of various nationalities and amazing selfless people running shelters off their own bats, as well as those offering hospitality and care to Dean and Nala are also worthy of note. Not having the opportunity to see some rarely visited countries such as Georgia and Azerbaijan, I am thankful to Dean for giving me a glimpse of these countries. His videos on YouTube are also well worth watching. As a bonus - what a pleasure to read excellent English! I am eagerly following the travels of Dean and Nala on YouTube and Instagram and can not wait for the sequel to Nalas World. The cherry on the top is that Dean is contributing his profits to many worthwhile animal charities. The world needs so many more Dean Nicholsons. Reading this book has been an uplifting experience.
