    1. This was a decent novella But if you have a problem with ants, this may not be the one for you Also, it s not a good idea to read this one during your lunch hour.It was a fast and fun read, but there wasn t a lot of meat to the story The ants ate it all If that s what you re in the mood for, then this one is for you.


    2. Ants, everywhere, ants Take a volcanic island, a bunch of military types and ants galore feasting, and that s what this novella entails It s not something you will want to take along to read on a picnic, unless you don t mind graphic depictions of ants eating human flesh, but if you have an ant phobia, it might bother you a bit I loved the imagery and descriptions but didn t care at all for the thin characterization Who can we root for in this story besides the volcano and the ants This feels a [...]


    3. Wheaton is a good writer, but this story is just rather weak No character development No over the top humor to make it campy and fun We don t know why the ants act the way they do, how they are able to do such horrific damage in an instant, how they became so intelligent to be able to plan attacks and even attack the victims at their most vulnerable body parts, how they came to mutate in such a fashion or even WHY the heck they got so vicious in the first place Really, the story is just one kill [...]


    4. A true horror story, short quick read Reminds me of the movies late fifies about extreme creatures These are ANTS They have taken over an island Wheaten is the screenwritten for Friday 13th This a straight to Kindle novella he has written There are numerous others.


    5. Decent little killer ant short, with adequate characterization and a quick pace The ending seems a bit neat, but otherwise a solid entry in the animal attack subgenre of horror fiction.
