    1. Maybe it's a good book, but I picked up and put down this book many times before finally finishing. I found it ultimately unsatisfying and constantly reading chapters where the identity of the POV character wasn't revealed until the last paragraph was draining, not tension inducing.


    2. For awhile there, I thought I'd finally found a Gerald Seymour book I didn't care for. but I was wrong. Rat Run is, like many of his novels, about terror, spy craft, crime, and so forth, but its real theme is redemption.Malachy is a poor guy who'd been kicked out of the British army in disgrace for alleged desertion. He's challenged to get his act together by a local cop, and Malachy turns his attention to ridding the slum he lives in of drug dealers. Sounds very action-filled, but it's not. He [...]


    3. I enjoyed this, no doubt about that.It had very many more strands than the blurb on the back would have led you to believe. Yes, one of the central characters is a disgraced ex-soldier seeking redemption by taking on drug dealers on his London sink estate. But there is, as always with Seymour, so much more. I presume this part of the novel was felt to be the most appealing in the eyes of the publisher to the browser at the supermarket, and received the attention of the cover artist and synopsis [...]


    4. Took a while to get into this book, but it was worth it!It tells of the story of a man's redemption, trial by fire, whatever you might want to call it.Malachay Kitchen comes back from Iraq a broken, beaten man. He is painted as a coward and his life has sunk so low that he is living among the drop outs and dregs of society.A social worker takes Mal on as his "special" case and gets him a flat on drug infested housing project. He could have withered there, sunk to new lows and died. But, because [...]


    5. This is the second Gerald Seymour book that I've read and it won't be the last. Interestingly, I've read both as audiobooks. This book is woven around a quest by Malachy Kitchen who was an intelligence officer in the British army. After apparently running away from action during a fire fight in Afghanistan, Malachy loses his self respect, his career and his wife. Shamed/goaded by the nephew of his elderly neighbor, who had been beaten and robbed by thugs, to do something and thus regain his self [...]


    6. Good characterization, nice plot and ultimately I think he's not a bad writer, he just has an unusual style which takes some getting used to.Too much punctuation with too few adverbs, but fundamentally enjoyable,


    7. Very interesting, but didn't keep me in suspense as much as the other two books of his I've read. I do enjoy how he always seems to work birds and marshes into his books, so if you're a birdwatcher I think you'll enjoy his books.


    8. Weird story if you ask me and this was my first Gerald Seymour book, I enjoyed it but it took me a while to get into. The beginning wasn't adding up for me it took a few chapters to understand where the story was.


    9. At the beginning, the quick shifts in point of view were disorienting. You get used to it, though. The story was excellent.


    10. I remember this was quite good, story of disgraced army man who trys to redeem himself by taking on local drug lord.



    11. Typical Seymour. Which means a very engaging style, well-drawn characters, and a fast-paced plot with plenty of depth.




    12. Reasonable story, but slow and with too many parallel story lines. Still managed to enjoy it using some creative skipping ;)/Martijn


    13. Seymour's skill in creating character and situation sucks you into the narrative and keeps you on edge from beginning to end. A gripping tale of a man finding redemption in the destruction of cartel


    14. If ever a book was a page turner, this is one. Although originally difficult to get my head around the myriad of characters, I found this book to be a tremendous read and would highly recommend it.


    15. Not the best book I have read,perseverance gets you through this book and the story finally merges the characters together and some meaning becomes apparent.would not be a recommendation of mine.
