Most of us think of bugs as pesky creatures we squish under our shoes or bat away with our hands. Under the microscope of Sue Hubbell’s keen eye emerges an exciting world we rarely take the time to see. Author of A Country Year, Hubbell writes regularly for The New Yorker, Smithsonian, and Discover magazines, bringing to her delightful essays the practical veracity of a gentlewoman farmer, and the style and élan of an eccentric who has found her bliss.

There was an odd audio artifact that I've not heard with other audiobooks from Audible. Occasionally I could hear a faint repeat of the soundtrack in the background. It reminds me of the background of old audio tapes where the soundtrack would bleed onto adjacent tape on the reel.
It was really great to get a glimpse into the lives of so many different lovers-of-bugs. And the descriptions of the insects themselves and their habits were artful and inspiring.
Every chapter is different, keeping it fresh and interesting.
Barbara's enthusiasm and honest admiration of entomologists, scientists, and insects really comes across in her voice. It is a delight to listen to.
