In his dreams, Lucky escapes to the war-ridden jungles of Laos, where his grandfather, who never came home from the Vietnam War, is still trapped.

    "absolutely excellent"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book breaks down its character into imperfect humans as you would expect but doesn't bother with glorifying the flaws of its characters. It does not try to apologize or excues its characters' flaws. It just presents them to us. To me, that was absolutely amazing


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Everybody Sees the Ants?

    There is this very intence bully scene that the main character references throughout the novel that really brings clarity to his fear of facing his bulley's


    What about Kirby Heyborne’s performance did you like?

    EVERYTHING. He was a perfect performer of just about every character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Everybody sees the ants" probably. It may be the title but its also the most important message of the book!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is such an important read for anyone who is looking for a deep emotional novel. Don't expect romance or late night walks on the beach. This is about some of our darkest human flaws. Cowardice. Escapism. Bullying. Ignoring problems. There is so much to dig through in this book. It is wonderfully, wonderfully full.
