More reviews of books and short stories...
I've enjoyed quite a few books and short stories over the past couple of months, so here's another batch of reviews.
|The Ants Are Coming by Bruce Bullock|
The Ants Are Coming by Bruce Bullock - 4.8 / 5.0
The Ants Are Coming is an excellently written account of an African village where the villagers are forced to evacuate their homes due to the approach of millions of red siafu ants. I loved this short story and I suspect that anyone with an interest in or appreciation of Africa will also thoroughly enjoy it. The story is told in a very matter-of-fact way and this style works well as the author expertly describes the horror of nature and the response of the villagers to the oncoming threat of the siafu ants.
