Bluestalking Reader

Les, it's wonderful! Hope you enjoy it.


Oh, I'm so glad to hear this is such a good book! I added it to my wishlist a couple days ago after reading about it in BookSense's 2006 Highlights.

Bluestalking Reader

Jenclair, this one was featured at Borders. It's one of several they're considering for their own award. I'm not sure if that's for a first novel or for a highly original novel that's not getting attention elsewhere, but it's a wonderful idea either way. It was also 30%, between their 20 % discount and my members' card 10% off. A good deal all 'round.


You've made "rat" sound interesting! How did you decide on this book?

Bluestalking Reader

L.B., I have heard they're intelligent but I'm deathly afraid of rodents. But then again, I'm deathly afraid of a lot of animals so that's not terribly surprising.

I give this book a very high recommendation. I'm shocked how much I loved it.

Literary Bohemian

Thank you for the book review. I used to keep rats as pets. They are naturally intelligent creatures so a story about an extraordinary rat sounds like fun. I've put this book on my TBR list.
