Staff Reviews

I opened this book expecting not to like it, but its narrator won me over. The premise is deceptively simple: A rat raised on books longs to befriend a human. Really, it's about the insufficiency of language, the limitations of our bodies, the hugeness of the world, and our insignificance within it. As bleak as that sounds, Savage executes it humorously. A thoroughly enjoyable, intelligent story.

— Sarah G.
