I really enjoyed this book. I picked it up to learn more about the rodents, but I had no idea that it was really a history book written with rats as the central plot device. A very interesting read that will teach you a great deal more about New York City and America than you'd think based on its title.

A fun read - written in the same engaging, wry, slightly ironic voice as the author's Meadowlands and Cross Country. Thoroughly researched but utterly without scholarly pretense --- more history/natural history should be written in such an entertaining style.

This is a fascinating read for those with a bit of interest in the macabre or animal lovers. It won an Alex Award, which is given to books written for adults that have a great appeal factor for teens.
