Loved it - thought the premise was hilarious- rats infiltrating Alberta - quirky Canadian humour....
Someone published this book, despite the fact that no one will really like it. What's to like? Rates, lots and lots of rats, fertility doctors gone to the dark side, urban trapping, psycho behaviourist sexual predation... hey, this book has it all. I actually really liked it, but partly because no one else will. Nominated for an award in an obscure sub-category that it didn't even win, this book will never go anywhere because it is bona fide creepy in so many ways.
Read this for a Can Lit class. Not sure I loved the sexual politics (or general sexual creepiness) or the Ontarian need to take Alberta down a peg. There's a thesis to be written about sexually damaged women who attempt to seduce men, who have to heroically hold back in order to form a true bond. I don't get the psychology behind that cliche.
I found this by accident right when it was first published--I was so taken by its bizarre premise that I couldn't resist. It builds on some absolutely absurd truths in the Canadian political culture and is very craftily pulled together.
