The Care of Wooden Floors is the story of a unnamed narrator who is asked to flat-sit for his friend, Oskar, who is a perfectionist when it comes to his living space especially his floors. He couldn’t have picked a worse person to mind his apartment who was only there a week but certainly managed to leave his mark. He also had to mind Oskars two cats who like all clever cats misbehave when their owner is away. They do add a bit of fun to the book and I think if managed right they could have played a better part in the book.
It is a very well written book with beautifully descriptive language. You can really picture what he is trying to show you. However, I don’t think the story-line was strong enough and found myself wanting to get to the end for it to be over. I wouldn’t recommend it or be looking to read another of Will Wiles books.
