    This was one of my all time favorite books when I was a kid I must ve read it eight times So I was pleased to find that it holds up well, and I still found it very entertaining although it seemed a shorter I did notice some things that I don t think really registered when I was younger For one, I was thinking as I read that Mrs Frisby is a pretty unusual character for a children s book She s an adult, which is not common to children s novels usually the protagonist is the same age or a This was one of my all time favorite books when I was a kid I must ve read it eight times So I was pleased to find that it holds up well, and I still found it very entertaining although it seemed a shorter I did notice some things that I don t think really registered when I was younger For one, I was thinking as I read that Mrs Frisby is a pretty unusual character for a children s book She s an adult, which is not common to children s novels usually the protagonist is the same age or a couple years older than the intended audience And she definitely thinks like an adult she notices things like how young Justin seems, worries about taking care of her family, misses her husband It s kind of cool.The other thing I noticed was just how few female characters there are in the book There s Mrs Frisby and her daughters, Auntie Shrew, Isabella a young rat Mrs Frisby meets in the library , and that s really about it Justin and Nicodemus make reference to the wives, who are certainly shown as capable and industrious, but don t really have a part to play in the book This lack is somewhat counterbalanced by what a brave and strong character Mrs Frisby is but it DID annoy me that she didn t even get a first name Mrs Jonathan Frisby, indeed It s not enough to make me give the book a lower score, but I found it a little irksome I don t think it really mattered to me too much as a kid, though mostly I think I had a huge crush on Justin

    When you ve lived in a cage, you can t bear not to run, even if what you re running towards is an illusionI grew up watching Don Bluth s animation movie The Secret of NIMH, and I had no idea this was a book Then I found this little second hand book onand I knew I had to read it This story is just so much fun I love those children s books told from the perspective of animals, because it really forces you to change your point of view when approaching a story those poor mice reallyWhen you ve lived in a cage, you can t bear not to run, even if what you re running towards is an illusionI grew up watching Don Bluth s animation movie The Secret of NIMH, and I had no idea this was a book Then I found this little second hand book onand I knew I had to read it This story is just so much fun I love those children s books told from the perspective of animals, because it really forces you to change your point of view when approaching a story those poor mice really live every single day of their life avoiding to get killed No wonder they get heart failure poor little creatures As I said, this book was a lot of fun bur honestly, I like the movieIt might be because of Don Bluth s genius but I also didn t like the illustrations in the book all mice and rats look exactly the same and I didn t think the author did such a great job imagining how a rat would think and act in this particular situation I don t think I will go on with the series, but I still love this story because of childhood memories, so I can t help but rating this book so high I have a soft heart ahah

    Rats are the better humans maybe.When I read this story aloud to students a few years ago, I remember thinking it is one of these crossover novels that speak to children and adults on different, but equally satisfying levels There is the human intrusion into the natural state of biology.There is the inevitable fallout.There is the fable.There is the fantasy about community building.There is the hardship and the there is the perseverance to deal with it.There is good old adventure and storytelli Rats are the better humans maybe.When I read this story aloud to students a few years ago, I remember thinking it is one of these crossover novels that speak to children and adults on different, but equally satisfying levels There is the human intrusion into the natural state of biology.There is the inevitable fallout.There is the fable.There is the fantasy about community building.There is the hardship and the there is the perseverance to deal with it.There is good old adventure and storytelling.What else can one ask of a children s book It also has RATS

    Ahoy there me mateys Here I take a second look at a previously enjoyed novel and give me crew me second reflections, as it were, upon visitin it again .In the last couple of days, I had to take a road journey and decided to listen to an audiobook on the way I wanted something I had previously read before and saw this one was available from the library The First Mate had never heard of it and I was appalled I adored the 1982 movie and the book when I was little but hadn t read or wat Ahoy there me mateys Here I take a second look at a previously enjoyed novel and give me crew me second reflections, as it were, upon visitin it again .In the last couple of days, I had to take a road journey and decided to listen to an audiobook on the way I wanted something I had previously read before and saw this one was available from the library The First Mate had never heard of it and I was appalled I adored the 1982 movie and the book when I was little but hadn t read or watched it in over a decade orI got excited to revisit it.Absolutely no disappointment here For those who don t know the story, Mrs Frisby is a field mouse with four children Her son Timothy gets pneumonia and cannot be moved from their winter home The problem is that the farmer is about to plow the fields If Mrs Frisby doesn t find a solution about what to do for Timothy then he will die.When I was little I was mostly fascinated by the rats of NIMH and how they came to be While I still enjoyed that section, this time I was muchfocused in Mrs Frisby s journey and her kindness and determination She is just a regular mouse but her love is her strength and I was surprisingly very moved by her adventures It was also nice to revisit old friends like Justin and Jeremy I did think it was interesting that even in the world of rodents that the males held all the power and made all the decisions I didn t notice that as a child So it be evenextraordinary that a older widowed mother mouse is the hero I wasinclined to think the rats saved the day when I was little Now I know where the true strength lies.I very much enjoyed the audiobook and thought Barbara Caruso did an excellent job with this one After listening to this I very much want to rewatch the movie I will wait until the First Mate and I are back together and order him to watch it with me Arrrr Side note Goodreads listed this as a series and I was confused Turns out the author s daughter wrote two additional books in the series No offense but I like this book as a standalone

    I loved this book so much as a young teen, I read it over and over and over This is probably the book that started me off on my lifelong love of fantasy, together with Watership Down I re read this as part of my MacHalo Reading Challenge 2016, 4 Re reading a childhood favourite.The beginning was a little boring and the very traditional gender roles of the mice annoyed me a bit at first But once Mrs Frisby met the rats and they told her their story, the book picked up a lot I had forgotten I loved this book so much as a young teen, I read it over and over and over This is probably the book that started me off on my lifelong love of fantasy, together with Watership Down I re read this as part of my MacHalo Reading Challenge 2016, 4 Re reading a childhood favourite.The beginning was a little boring and the very traditional gender roles of the mice annoyed me a bit at first But once Mrs Frisby met the rats and they told her their story, the book picked up a lot I had forgotten a lot of the storyline Some parts were pretty exciting, others emotional There was drama, angst, a good plot, suspense A nice rollercoaster.In the end I liked the story so much that I wouldn t mind reading a sequel, to find out how the story continues for our heroes

    I approached this with the usual trepidation you get when going back to a childhood favourite after nearly four decades away deep breath but I needn t have worried This book is every bit as charming, moving and, let s be honest, a teeny bit scary as I remembered If you like an intelligently written children s book that provides some food for thought, you could do a lot worse.I can t help but wonder if James Herbert read this before he wrote The Rats , though brrr

    This book captivated me from start to finish when I read it for the first time as an adult It s such a beautiful story of courage and morality and heroism It s hard to imagine anyone not being moved by The Rats of Nimh and its characters are well developed and not easily forgotten I thought about this book for days afterward, and I was sad when it ended There are really two stories going on at once O Brien cleverly brings the two together slowly by revealing their connection detail by This book captivated me from start to finish when I read it for the first time as an adult It s such a beautiful story of courage and morality and heroism It s hard to imagine anyone not being moved by The Rats of Nimh and its characters are well developed and not easily forgotten I thought about this book for days afterward, and I was sad when it ended There are really two stories going on at once O Brien cleverly brings the two together slowly by revealing their connection detail by detail through an absorbing flashback The entire book s tone is one of being invited into a secret that only you, the reader, are accepted into The science aspect is interesting and makes the animal characters evenrealistic and memorable I ve read reviews about what the author s intention was, pointing to the various themes from science playing with nature to self determination to morality present in the story This ambiguity make The Rats of Nimh all theinteresting
