I remember when we took my daughter Erica to get a pet. We ended up getting a hamster she named Toast but one of the associates at the store tried to get us to buy a rat. I remembered thinking - no way. Reading this book has changed my opinion somewhat. Rachel Toor is definitely a rat lover and most of the book is about her rat Iris and her antics as well as some history, genetics, and general rat information. What was odd about the book was the meanderings about her boyfriends, her mother, and her dog. The book was very readable but I found it got off topic a bit.
