    1 thought on “King of the Ants”

    1. A harsh and funny thriller that is perfectly rooted in the time it was written. I was genuinely surprised when I read this, given he was from the Fast Show and all. Now he's famous for his Young Bond books people overlook his three adult novels, but they're all very good. In fact, Getting Rid of Mr Kitchen is one of my all time favourites.

    2. Not my usual read, but a quality book never the less. I found the book filled with desperation, not a cheery story by any stretch of the imagination, but also filled with hope - I think the desire for Sean to get out of the hole he's gotten himself into makes the book a page turner

    3. Well fuck me sideways that was intense. I can see why it's R-rated now, for sure. But it was so good. Gory like The Enemy series and interesting like the Young Bond series. Though do not make the mistake of thinking this is a kids book. It may scar you.

    4. Fab readDark, sinister and exciting from start to finishEasy to read. Numerous plot twists, extremely violent. Strange to cheer on the anti hero.

    5. King of the ants was the first and best Higson novel I read, in a long fuzzy often embarrassing period of my life called the 90s, or as I call them my lost years there were 4 things that helped me overcome my late mothers passing, friends,music,drugs n books. I remember a drug dealing friend lending me this book(by the then fast show comedian) along with sabersonic the first sabers of paradise album, I devoured both of them together with enough soap bar and valium to nestle my twenty something s [...]

    6. Good book. Charlie Higson crafts a gripping read with decent suspenseful and action scenes. The characters are believable, but heavy on stereotypes - the burly builders get their comeuppance and make racist and sexist comments, not sure if there's a rough justice subtext to that. The book isn't as funny as it should as the situation is a bit grim to say the least. I look forward to reading more from this authour.
