it was amazing
Read from April 17 to 30, 2012

Excellent non-fiction read about the insects that inhabit our world and how they interact with mankind in disturbing, destructive, or painful ways.

Covered are everything from the bugs that eat our food plants to the bugs that eat our corpses after we die. The interrelationships between humans and bugs are fascinating.

Each bug is presented with illustrations and a little sidebar detailing its scientific name and where it can be found. At the end of the section, relatives of that bug are listed. The book is nicely designed and attractively illustrated, a pleasure to look at as well as read.

I intend to also read Wicked Plants by the same author.
