    1. I really like the theme of this book. Insect Lives is basically a collection of excerpted writings and pictures all centering around insects. We have journals from scientists, screenplays, comics, poems, scientific papers, lettersThe authors admit a slant towards the social insects in the material presented. The social insects are my favorite, so no problem there. I wish there was more of a balance in the material presented though. This selection was certainly composed the most of scientific pap [...]

    2. This was a very strange book, namely a collection of excerpts from nature writers on various insects. (No spiders though because they're arachnids and therefore too cool for this collection.) If you REALLY like bugs, I recommend reading it because there are some neat pieces that will entertain you and others that will make you gasp in awe. There is a huge bias towards ants, bees, and butterflies, but neat excerpts about balloon flies, earwigs, and mites too. (The squeamish should skip the sectio [...]

    3. This is a wide-ranging collection of short essays about insects. Quite a lot of it falls into into the type of nature writing that most bores me - trite observations all dressed up with poetic ambitions of mostly poor quality, offered by people who think staring into a garden is the same as peering into their soul. But there were a few in there that genuinely interested me, and quite a lot of them where I learned something. I was particularly enamored of the story of the pet mud dauber. So I can [...]

    4. All your favorite entomologists of history and the modern day wax creepy about the weirdest insect behavior they're comfortable writing about.Past the very detailed explanations of for instance, those mites that will only go into a moth's ear if the other ear is unoccupied, there's much more on group behavior - at what point does a colony of non-self sufficient, non-reproducing ants stop becoming many individuals, and behave identically to a collective organism?

    5. Love it, but I have such trouble getting through collections/books of snippets like this. To be fair, I have trouble getting through plenty of other books too. But that's my excuse this time, and I'm sticking to it! I expect to get back to this maybe if I were to implement a poem/short story/essay bit to my night-time reading.

    6. Fun read for those who enjoy nature. Each writer has their own voice and their own take on the insect world. I read this book as I had met the man who writes about mites that live in the ears of moths -- Asher Treat. To learn of another's passion can open one up to a new perspective.
