The description caught me at all

Hi,
I've just come across such an expression at work: "The description caught me at all". It reffers to someone's opinion about a product. Does this sentence express liking or disliking? Shouldn't it be: "The description didn't catch me at all"?

Thank you in advance

    I'm afraid this doesn't mean anything to me, and I can't even think of a context in which it might be used.

    Shouldn't it be: "The description didn't catch me at all"?
    This is possible (though I wouldn't use it myself). I believe "catch me" is used in some places as short for "catch my fancy" or "catch my attention".

    “The description didn’t catch me” doesn’t work for me. “Didn’t grab me” would.
