The Sting Of The Wild



As the title suggests this book is about wild things that sting. Further to this it is about a entomologist who has come up with a scale to rate such stings. Being an Australian I was unaware of a lot of these little critters but that did not diminish my enjoyment of this book.
The Sting Of the Wild is mainly a story of the evolution of Insects and their defence systems. It is also a story of the authors own life fascination on the subject and his journey close and far afield to study them. Overall a good and entertaining read just lacked the sting in the tale to make it a great one.
