Book review: Rats: Observations on the History and Habitat of the City's Most Unwanted Inhabitants
Rats: Observations on the History and Habitat of the City's Most Unwanted Inhabitants by Robert Sullivan is a very interesting book. I got turned on to this book via the Strain from Guillermo Del Toro since he sites this as one of his sources. From the Warhammer perspective I think Skaven players would really get a kick outta this book since it has some really cool insights into the behavior and our relationships with Rats. The first half of the book is great and provides some fantastic information about our day to day living with Rats and how they have evolved alongside us for eons. The only weak part of the book is that he spends a little too much time talking about himself and not the rats and exterminators which are a lot more interesting. Overall I highly recommend this book especially if you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary and it could provide some great background for a Skaven army. One fact out of it that I could not get outta my head is: If you live in an Urban area then within 10 feet from where you are sitting right now two rats are having sex.
