The authors' admiration for ants is evident throughout Cat Gould's narration of this audiobook. Listeners won't have the urge to bring ants home for research, as Suzanne Foitzik's team does, but they might find themselves liking the tiny creatures a little more. That's easy as listeners hear how ants sacrifice themselves for their colonies and measure distance in their brains. Of course, when Gould sounds more amused than horrified as Foitzik describes ants crawling across her face in the night, listeners most likely won't relate. And Gould's reading of the scale for rating ant bites, read with increased intensity by Gould, may also startle listeners. Still, the stories of ants doing things like building vertical cities to rival Manhattan are fascinating. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
