Libraries are where the librarians, who find obscure bits of local knowledge, and make great book recommendations live! This book is among the best books I have read, but I must say that the rule of the first holds: the rest of the books in the series went downhill. Werber’s other books, too, were interesting from a philosophical point of view, but increasingly irritating as metaphysical works. This one, however, I am half considering reading again!
-back in 2015:
Don’t kill any more ants!!
This book is worth learning French to read. Honestly. It had me worrying for the fate of an ant by page 40! Fascinating swap of perspectives, and hair-raising cliff-hanger ending. I have the 3rd book in this trilogy, but am anxiously waiting to get the 2nd from the library!
Ne tuez plus de fourmis !
Ce livre vaut la peine d’apprendre le français pour le lire. Vraiment. Il m’a fait soucier pour le destin d’une fourmi avant la 40e page ! Changement impressionnant de points de vues et fin incroyable. J’ai déjà le 3e tome mais j’attends avec impatience le 2e de la bibliothèque !

So, maybe I was over-empathizing with the ants?
Action Items in support of literacy for All:
1.) Imagine two different ways to increase library funding.
2.) Share them with us in the comments, here, please.
3.) Share your thoughts on how you think you’d feel in a library if you were an ant,
4.) Write a story, book, blog post or tweet that uses Items 1-3 above, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. Once published, donate one or more copies to your local public library, as I intend to do. Please tell us about your plans and how they go!
