I am a rat lover. I’ve been keeping Fancy Rats as pets since 2005 and am well and truly smitten by these intelligent, characterful little beasts. So it’s not surprising that I’m always drawn to books that feature rats, especially when writers are brave enough to make these much maligned creatures their heroes.
This section records all my rat-related reads to date. Unlinked titles are ones I’ve read but haven’t yet reviewed on this site, titles in green are books I own but have yet to read. If you can recommend any more for the list please do make a suggestion!
