Library Journal - Library JournalThis duo from 1976 and 1989, respectively, are both farces in their own way, except one is dead serious and the other dead funny. Dr. Rat (LJ 7/76) is a cry against animal experimentation told from the point of view of a veteran lab rat. The Midnight Examiner (LJ 4/1/89) follows the motley editorial staff of a tabloid including a bevy of sleazy reporters and a blowgun-wielding publisher.

Dr. Rat based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The imagery throughout the book of horror and chaos creates the true reality of our intervention in nature. The ending will leave you speechless and then fill your mind with much needed thought. It is one of the best books I have read.
This is a book I read over 15yrs ago and am re-buying now! It was so powerful! The message, and misunderstanding of humanity toward what the animals of the world were trying to say, and the consequences of them NOT listening impacted my life so much back then that I have NEVER forgotton the book nor what it was trying to get across. I highly recommend it if you Love animals at all!!
