Yep I've read it, and the sequel. Probably lots of waste curry in Bradford hence the size of the buggers

Read all 3 books, Rats, Lair and Domain.
Don't know why they're worried, there's good eating on a rat :)

I've always thought that "Rats" would make a good film if done properly. Delete nuclear testing as the cause and insert genetic modification to bring it up to date and bingo. Keep it British and London based though

Liked the Rats. Especially the graphic description of the hooker showing her gaping axe wound to everyone right before she gets a chimp taken outta her.

Put those two posts together and you come up with a fairly horrible dinner.....
Curried rat, mmmmm! Rat Tandoori sounds good too.

Yay...why waste the opportunity for a Blackadder Goes Forth reference?

Rat au "van" (vin). Marinated in a puddle until it drowns. Saute or fricasee?

Thought there was a film? Mind you, the shambles they made out of filming some of Herbert's other books would make me think twice before going to see it.

It was called 'Deadly Eyes' rather poor film that didn't do justice to the book. Bit like the crap they turned Clive Barker's stuff into. He was a Scouser wasn't he? much better than Herbert in my opinion.

They did make a film and it was the biggest load of tosh ever.
Ah that would probably be why I'm not aware of it, that and as monty has said being called "Deadly Eyes" didn't help

I loved them back in the day, especially Domain. Although it did make me chuckle with reference to it's description of London protected accomodation.
