Firmin Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife review ✓ 3 Firmin wächst im Keller einer Bostoner Buchhandlung auf und liest sich Buch für Buch durch die Weltlitera. I adored this intelligent uirky book Yes it s told from the POV of a rat but this is no Secret of Nimh The rat in uestion Firmin is the runt of a litter of 13 and because this mother only has 12 nipples he has to play musical teats with little success Instead he has to sustain himself by nibbling classic books Birthed by an alcoholic mother in the basement of a bookshop in Boston s Scolloy Suare there are thankfully enough volumes to keep him full But in allowing the words to gestate in his belly Firmin the Vermin soon finds he prefers to read words than eat them He gets through shelves and shelves of books of all types faster than any goodreader The act of reading provides self help but also a troubling melancholy that does not befall his lowly rat brothers and sisters uite a metaphor there for those who read and those who don t They soon flee the bookshop basement for the alcohol drenched alleys of the on its last legs Suare all sualor and strip clubs blue cinemas and the beaten Firmin is lonely and projects on the bookshop owner Norman Shine But there is another human who might just offer Firmin the fraternity he needsSet against the backdrop of the last days of Scolloy Suare before it was demolished and rebuilt as a government area each chapter starts with a facsimile of the title page of a classic novel There are also sweet illustrations of the reading rat and his sadventures Short and not always sweet the book has moments of uiet comedy and tragedy like any life
