Comments Joe Rat

  1. I didn t find this book to be very engaging The plot was very action based, and the characters felt very far away from me, and it was very difficult to feel any connection with them The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one was because I found the London street sewer details to be interesting and the unfolding of the mystery was composed well Other than that, I did not enjoy reading this book and did not find it to be a page turner.


  2. A story that is different from any other you may have read Perhaps written for a child readership, but highly entertaining for adult readers The reader cannot but delight in the characters and the plot certainly keeps you reading.


  3. Finished reading it Didn t much care for it It wasn t the dark and unremitting misery of the characters existence it was the lackluster plot It felt like the author had all this richly defined research on the underbelly of London and pinned it to a paper doll of a plot It just didn t hang well in the end.


  4. It took me a couple of chapters to get into the story, but then I had to finish it I don t think it was fully developed, though, as I couldn t fully understand some of the secondary characters motivations This book was full of some very gritty, very harsh realities Definitely not for younger children.


  5. You can smell Joe Rat before you see him He makes his living walking the sewers looking for lost valuables Joe owes money to the boss and whatever Joe brings will never be enough It s a lucky day when Joe gets to the boss without getting beat up and robbed If the sewer don t kill him then the gangs will.


  6. Gritty YA adventure set in the sewers and graveyards of Victorian London Good characters and evocative setting.
