هیجانانگیز و اسرارآمیز.
لذتبخشترین قسمت داستان برام تو مغازهی تام و آشنایی با وسایلی که داشت بود. یاد فرد و جرج تو هری پاتر میافتادم ولی حتی از مغازهی اونا هم هیجانانگیزتر بود!
شخصیت جاسمین رو خیلی دوست دارم همچنان.
یادگاری از کتاب:
ظاهرا احتمالش وجود دارد که کسانی که تازه به دنیا میآیند تاریخشان را کاملا فراموش کنند و از روی وظیفه از اصول احمقانهای پیروی کنند.
این را هم بدان که همیشه حق انتخابی وجود دارد و قید و بندها را میتوان کنار گذاشت.

از هر لحاظ که بخوای نگاه کنی پیشرفت داشت. اما نه به اندازه ای که بخواد چار بگیره و نه اندازه ای بود ( نسبت به جلد قبل ) که بخواد سه و نیم بگیره.

Another great fantasy for 8-11-year olds. Full of interesting events and action. In each book, the three protagonists need to find one of the Deltora stones. Three are on the belt now. Onto the forth.

I think the book was magnificent! A bit scary at some points but not as scary as the first time I read it. Clever twists and turns increased the tension, making it really exciting. I loved it.

Unlike the previous two books in the series, I felt like this book got more political, and strayed away from being a mostly adventure book. At first I didn't like this, but it proved crucial to some of the character arcs - especially Jasmine's - and I actually found it pretty pivotal to the motivations surrounding the quest as a whole. This series tricks you at first into thinking it's going to be a run-of-the-mill "beat the Evil Lord and everything will be well by collecting _____", and then it ...more

My brilliant son found the anime cartoon, Deltora Quest, and has been watching each episode (on his phone) in order up to the part in the books that we're reading; how cool is that?! He missed his chance to test on this one Friday but he still watched the corresponding anime episodes AND (we)jumped immediately into the next installment in the book series, The Shifting Sands! I'm so thankful to Mrs. Maples (the school librarian) for suggesting this series, I haven't seen Seth this excited about r ...more

The naming of the Ra-Kacharz was especially clever, though I kind of thought it a bit weird that the "City of Rats" is only seen in the last 2-3 chapters of the book. Really entertaining overall though!

Magical, suspenseful, awesome
I’ll admit – I’m a total neat freak. Just to sit down and read this book, write this review, I had to vacuum the lounge (where I’m nesting for the day), and put away the dry washing. To be fair though, my living room floor was also covered in chewed up dog toys. But I digress… the point is that I am a neat freak, but this is also tempered by the knowledge that there is such a thing as too neat. Which, is exactly what happens in The City of Rats.

This is one of my favorite books of the series. For one thing, I completely adore Tom, and always have. His playing both sides of the war for the sake of money is just so great. And I think it's pretty clear where his true loyalty lies, whatever he may say.

Then we get a cameo of my favorite character!! We don't even learn his name, but he's there and he's beautiful. I just love him so much!

Nadzieja umiera ostatnia…

Miasto szczurów to już trzeci tom z serii Pas Deltory, którą stworzyła australijska pisarka ukrywająca się pod pseudonimem Emily Rodda.

Deltora była niegdyś spokojną krainą. Jednak odkąd przejął ją we władanie Władca Mroku, stała się posępna i niebezpieczna. Jedynym ratunkiem jest odnalezienie poszczególnych klejnotów z mitycznego Pasa Deltory, który następnie ma zostać przekazany prawowitemu spadkobiercy królów.

Cerita petualangan Lief, Barda, dan Jasmine yang ketiga.

Di awal cerita, tiga sekawan itu dikejar-kejar 11 anak Thaegan yang ingin membalas kematian ibu mereka dan kedua saudara mereka, Jin dan Jod. Setelah berhasil lolos, berkat kecerdikan Lief, mereka mengenal TOM, seorang pedagang yang menyuplai para pemberontak, dan juga menyuplai Pengawal Kelabu.

This book is about Leaf and his friends Barda and Jasmin going to rat city to find another Gem. Leaf and his friends have to find these gems so that they can put together the belt of deltora so that the world can be united and better improved.

I connect this book to the lightning thief. This book reminds me of the lightning thief because the characters have to go on a quest to find what they need in order to survive. This book is also similar to the lightning thief because Leaf has to make sure

Emily Rodda has continued spinning her splendid "Deltora Quest" with book #3 and another exciting adventure. The three main characters Lief, Barda and Jasmine continue to work as a team against some of the strangest creatures and people yet. But they also continue to unravel a very strange tale of what had been going on in this land for a very long time, long before the Shadow had taken over. There are several very narrow escapes in this tale and Filli, Jasmine's little furry friend who pretty m ...more

City of the Rats is the third book in the serious Deltora Quest written by Emily Rodda. This book is made more for the 7-12 year old males that love and thrive off of mythology. The main theme of this book is even if all hope is lost you shall never give up, because someone will always take your place to do what is right. I think this was a very good book to read and i recommend that you should pick up Emily's first 2 books in Deltora Quest and no matter how boring the first book is, don't put ...more

Rats, wild beasts, crazy adventures that no - one has trained for or has skill to overcome, our hero lief and companions barda and jasmine stumble into yet more maddening craziness, but in the end, quickly and almost without solid reasoning, the wild beasts (the rats in this case) are beaten, and lief has come out the other side of the adventure victorious with yet another easily - gained gem for the belt of deltora.
almost as quickly as lief is saving deltora, the pages are flipping by.

I just finished reading this out loud to my 9 year old son for our bed time reading. He loves this series, and has already read the first 6 books by himself, but he wanted to re-read them with me. He had told me that this was his least favourite book of the series so far. I'm sure his prejudice clouded my judgement but I didn't like this one as much as the first two. I thought that the Ra-Kacharz bit went on too long, and I lost track of the story and characters at times. It all came to an end r ...more
Certainly the most interesting of the Deltora Quest series. A whole host of freaky characters and an interesting stint in a secret underground town with a morbid fear of furry creatures. After escaping from said town, the three heroes manage to end up in an even freakier deserted city, deserted by all except an army of very savage rats which attempt to eat our heroes’ whole. But once again, predictably, good triumphs and the merry trio is one step closer to fulfilling their magical quest and rid ...more

Read aloud for the boys. Pretty good one- goes back and explains some of the earlier happenings throughout Del. Leif, Jasmine and Barda continue their quest for the stones of the Belt of Deltora. This time the travel toward the City of Rats. Road weary, they stop at Tom's shop for the traveler, who sells them some interesting creatures to ride.

The creatures bolt for 'home' and the 3 end up in the city Noradz- where they continually break the fierce laws of convention there and wind up imprisone

Reread 29. 5. 2015

Je hezké vidět v literatuře pro děti prvky, které obsahují knihy pro starší čtenáře. Děcka se aspoň naučí pár chytrých věcí o některých principech života.
Musím však poznamenat, že v Městě krys bylo pár opravdu špatně popsaných míst, které by snesly lepší péči. Ze slovního spojení - pak nebylo nic - se mi dělalo blbě.
Ale i tak je popisovaný příběh nápaditý.

Ze 4 na 3. Popojedem.
Although the red-cloaked OCD fanatics and Dr. Seuss camel-horses have potential to be cool, it was slow and boring. The suspense doesn't really focus on the jewel. There's some mystery to discover at Tom's Shoppe--wish I could buy some of his unique toys--(crap, said Tre), but but but but we just weren't connecting to the plot. It seems to go on and on with short bursts of excitement and no climax.
