Beautiful tragic wildly creative Firmin is a rat who is born on a shredded copy of Finnigan s Wake in the basement of a bookshop and conseuently falls in love with literature Stuck in a sea of rats too simpleminded to understand his intellectual depths and humans he cannot communicate with he struggles to find happinessThis book made me laugh cry and think But mostly it spoke to my soul I would recommend it to anyone who has ever found solace within the pages of a book I mostly bought the book because of the cover design I had honestly expected for it to be sort of a sweet story and an easy read It wasn t I had stop at many sentences and ust THINK ABOUT WHAT I HAD JUST about what I had ust Fermin has a voice that belongs to all semi crazy fucked up protagonists in my opinion He wines about all the same things being left out failing relationships because of a different image of the other person and so onThere is one freakishly cute feature of Fermin s brain that I believe mine has too the property of giving situations names or titles I do it without thinking about it I guess it happens to people who are used to think with words This amazing book written by first time novelist Sam Savage blew me away Firmin wächst im Keller einer Bostoner Buchhandlung auf und liest sich Buch für Buch durch die Weltlitera. ,

Ith its intelligent writing and perceptive looks into the human condition Yes it s from a rat s perspective Don t let that deter you from reading one of the best books of the past two yearsFirmin discovers that he lives in a bookshop basement in a run down part of a city He nibbles on the pages of the books but also learns to read voraciously He closely observes the world of the bookshop and ventures out to nearby buildings Firmin is born like any other being naked and unknowing His exploration of his surroundings and his attachment to things of familiarity ring true of the way we grow His awareness of his OWN PSYCHE IS OFTEN HUMOROUS HIS INABILITY TO CONVERSE psyche is often humorous His inability to converse humans an enormous obstacle to him is poignant His false belief that he has a connection with other beings is heartbreaking All along Firmin never stops tryingThis is a book I will re read whenever I feel I m getting too caught up in day to day chores It will remind me to keep reaching out no matter what the conseuences This book really surprised me When I saw
