Review by Krumbs
I have seen the movie The Secret of NIMH multiple times and always loved it. Came across the book and began wondering how it may be different--and it is! I's funny that a book with not much of a plot can be so compelling. There's no magic necklace like in the movie plot, no big dramatic confrontation at the end, but the characterization is excellent, and it was definitely set up to be the first book in a series. At the end the reader is left not knowing if some of the characters have survived, but it fit well in the scope of the story. Sometimes we do only get to know people for a brief period of time before they move away and we're left wondering how their lives turn out.
