I grew up watching the movie, many times. I loved it, it was a fantastic story with an interesting plot. When I got into middle school, they had a book fair where you could buy books. This was one of them. I grabbed it since I loved the movie so much and thought I would read the book. It`s fairly close to the movie though of course, the book has more details to it than what the movie shows. I recommend it for anyone who`s seen the movie or is looking for a good story about animals. It does have a little bit of darkness to it but as I saw the movie in elementary school, it isn`t that bad. It may have a bit of complex plot, it took me to watch the movie a couple of times before I understood what it was that was going on (but that was with a very young mind). I`m interested in reading the other books in the series.

My favorite book from childhood. I actually still have the same copy I read and re-read. The dark wonders of the rosebush, the bumble headedness of Jeremy, the suspense and terror of movie day added to the pressures of having a very sick son. Fantastic read for the young and young at heart.

This book will become a classic if it's not already.

NIMH, it turns out, is a real place... though their research primarily centres on mental maladies rather than smartnessation. Still, the fantastical idea that a group of rodents could have been granted human-level sentience is a fascinating concept that allows O'Brien to challenge what, exactly, makes us so "civilised" in the first place.

I haven't read this book in about fifteen years, but I remember really getting into it when I was a kid. I'd definitely recommend it as a solid book for kids who are readers or want to be.

This story is pretty good. I like the part about Nimh, but sometimes the other spots were a little bit dull. All the same, this book is a good book to read for all ages!
