Wicked Bugs is not for the fainthearted. Amy Stewart examines the serious foibles of a variety of insects with the same intesity as in her Wicked Plants, the successful predecessor. Stewart is a captivating writer, making her “icky” subject matter interesting, ludicrous, frightening, and diabolical. Stewart's is a carefully researched book. You won’t be able to put it down, except to wipe away imaginary insects while reading.
