Ant Colony
"From its opening pages, Ant Colony immerses the reader in a world that is darkly existential, with false prophets, unjust wars, and corrupt police officers, as it follows the denizens of a black ant colony under attack from the nearby red ants. On the surface, it's the story of this war, the destruction of a civilization, and the ants' all too familiar desire to rebuild. Underneath, though, Ant Colony plumbs the deepest human concerns--loneliness, faith, love, apathy, and more. All of this is done with humor and sensitivity, exposing a world where spiders can wreak unimaginable amounts of havoc with a single gnash of their jaws"--Provided by publisher.

Ant Colony is frightening, beautiful, and thought-provoking—daring your mind to comprehend our purpose in life...or lack thereof.

Weird and wonderful. I'd give it more than 10 stars if I could.
