    Kindle analogavalljud.co ´ Firmin Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife Kindle ñ firmin free, adventures kindle, metropolitan ebok, lowlife kindle, Firmin Adventures download, of a download, Adventures of a pdf, Firmin Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife PDFThis book really surprised me When I saw it at Powell's Books I knew right away I was the target audience See that white chunk on the right side of the cover? It's a literal chunk taken out of the book As though a rat had nibbled it On the back it said it was a book about Firmin a rat who begins by consuming literature but soon finds it consumes him It's about a rat who loves books Perfect for me So I bought it guessing it would be a fun cute summer read with little substanceIt isn't cute and it certainly isn't lacking in substance Rather it is a beautiful exploration of a lonely genius I couldn't help but identify with Firmin the rat as he navigated the human world separated by his lack of voice and the fear most humans hold for rats The cast of characters is rounded out by a bookshop owner a compassionate but probably off his rocker sci fi author Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers who are residents of Fermin's fantasy life and hundreds of books In his isolation the books Firmin reads b
