Interesting Local Author

I liked this book very much although it did seem to go a little soap opera at the end. I guess I wished for better things for some of the characters. Beautifully written though and touches on a very important issue.

Vonnegut is brilliant all of the time, but this book in particular because it touches on his reality.

Brilliant and Disturbing

I have read this book several times and each time I become more connected to the characters. It's a disturbing story, but the moral of acceptance of ourselves is fascinating and very well written. I think this book is particularly good as a discussion book.

Beautiful, Insightful
Beautifully Written

This is a lovely book that has some mystery to it as well. It sounds like the graphic nature of it would be a turn off, but it is actually quite beautiful to read. Great discussion book.

A lot of fun to read

I had a great time reading this book and think Greg Maguire is an interesting author. I'm not positive how much discussion could come from it, but it's definitely worth the read.

I love this book!

This was a fun read and very interesting. I thought it was going to be more on the biology of Rats, but it ended up being more a history of Rats within cities. Fascinating stuff and well written. It's also impressive the lengths the author went to for his research.

Very funny

I loved this horror twist on the academic lifestyle. Hynes is a great author who has a lot of fun poking fun at those with high IQ's and low EQ's.
