The book is fairly interesting but the author takes a long time talking about how horrific the mantis courtship is. It is horrific but the author should decide wether this book is a thriller or text book. Fame is the daughter of Legend. In the world of creatures, as in the world of men, the story precedes and outlives history. There are many instances of the fact that if an insect attract our attention for this reason or that, it is given a place in those legends of the people whose last care is truth.
