    A terrific, wholly original story Brutal, straightforward and unflinching yet really fun at the same time It had elements of Planet of the Apes and Heinlein, but with a lot heart.Mort e did that thing that only SF can do so well It told a story about hu...

    I will keep this review short, for two reasons First, having read Mort e , I have earned the right to minimize further time spent on it Second, having been spared Morte e , you deserve the opportunity to escape unscathed.Yes, this is that most dreaded of book blog posts a negative review Whatever I may have previously said in regards to negative reviews, to whatever conclusions we may have come, you know that I don t engage in negative reviews lightly I try to look for good qualities even in books I don t much like It says something about Mort e that I feel like no other option is available to me.The premise, I thought, was promising animals are engaged in a war against humans Mort e pet name Sebastian is an animal agent, working to undermine human resistance In my mind s eye, I imagined a feline padding around the house, pulling pranks on its owners I waswrong, to put it mildly The animals, raised to consciousness and bipedal locomotion via a chemical agent produced by the ant queen bent on humanity s destruction, wage a genocidal war against their...

    Ummmmmmno Just no That s the thought that kept repeating in my head as I read through Mort e I kept waiting for the story to click with me, but it never really did Generally, I don t have a problem with suspending disbelief, and I even get the appeal of anthropomorphic animals at the center of a story But with Mort e I just couldn t buy in Though I grew to tolerate Mort e as a protagonist, I felt no investment in the tale being told.Is there a decent story within these pages Sure, to an extent If nothing else, it highlights the horrors of war nearly as well as other conflict novels Disassociation, numbness, difficulty adapting to civilian life, trauma, loss, and solitude are all represented here in some form, and I grew weary alongside Mort e as the conflict dragged on But while I could find traction with the war aspects of Mort e , the rest left me wanting.The whole reason for the evolution of the animals Nope Did not work for me I mean, come on, opposable thumbs and fully formed vocal chords just magically appearing on animals because of some underground genetic engineering, all orchestrated by the ant Queen in her underground lair Puh lease One or two animals being modified in a lab through painful experimentation I could buy It would be awful to read about, as the animal lover within me would be pissed, but I could buy it So yeah, with the main conceit already rubbing me the wrong way, it was up to the characters and...

    This book should come with a warning if you share a home with four legged companions, watch out I spent a lot of time assuring mine that they were much beloved members of my family, not slaves.To be honest, I ve never been a huge fan of animals as people adult books eg, Watership Down , although the Thornton Burgess books are among my childhood favorites But Mort e is not one of those books it s a riveting read, with Sebastian Mort e as a flawed hero His love, and search, for Sheba is inspirational and rings so true The ending was a little messy, with a ton of action that doesn t really seem to fit with the previous pacing and tone as climactic battle scenes go, it s a good one One of the things I loved most was the sense Mort e had that no group, not the ants, nor the animals, nor the humans, would ever get it right and that society made up of whatever species was fatally flawed His only lodestar was Sheba, and one hopes that...

    An interesting entry in the dystopian science fiction genre, this novel took two premises that usually populate the most cliche kind of sci fi giant ants and animals becoming intelligent , and treated them with the utmost seriousness That alone made me want to love this novel but there were a few things that held it back.The main character, Mort e ne Sebastian, is a house cat that has mutated to human proportions in the aftermath of a colony of giant ants declaring war on humanity To help in their war, the ants released a hormone that mutated all mammals, reptiles and birds into soldiers, fighting on the side of The Colony Mort e , a war hero, finds himself facing something much insidious now that the fighting has begun to die down a human bioweapon called EMSAH.The writing was engaging, the premise was interesting, the characters were written well But those same characters, through the fact that they were evolved animals, suffered from a strange thing a lack of character development Mort e is a good example His driving mission throughout the novel is to find his friend Sheba, a dog he met...

    Ever pick up a book, knowing even before you start that you re destined to love it Ever have it exceed even those lofty expectations Mort e was sent to me several many months back I d been chatting with a PR person at SoHo Press about a different book I d reviewed, and she mentioned Mort e It s about a warwith antsand sentient house pets Or something like that.Of course I was all, Yes Yes please Send it Send it Send it Because ants Waging war against humanity I mean, Them is only my absolute FAVORITE of the 1950s atomic fear sci fi flicks And that s about ants Giant ants Giant ants that take over the desert So yeah You had me at ants, SoHo You had me at ants.Here s a confession I read Mort e six months ago I enjoyed it thoroughly, but as it wasn t set to release until January of 2015, I figured wait until then to write the review.Writing the review while the material was still fresh in mind was the other, smarter option, but it wasn t the one I chose Because I also wanted to see if the book would stick with me If it could make me remember, to wonder, to think about it for months to come Because that, to me, is the mark of a really good book a book I m destined to love and re read again and again.Mort e.did it I loved it And it stuck.I honestly feel like I read Mort e last week It s stayed very fresh in my mind, colorin...

    This book annoyed the hell out of me It started out entertainingly enough I was interested in the ants method of advancing the animals to become sentient, and actually human like I was even ok with the war against the humans.But when the whole religion thing came up, the book lost me I m a literal sort of gal, so I m pretty blind to symbolism But a lot of this story read to me like something what an earnest high school student could write about I m still not sure if it s pro religion or anti religion I think it s probably the latter, but I kinda stopped paying close attention because I was so annoyed The character of Mort e Sebastian was pretty good, though Too bad he had to live in such an annoying story.I liked the story of Balaam s ass that was at the beginning of the book It s been a long time since I read that, and had forgotten it And it was pretty apropos t...

    This was a book I read in about four hours on a drizzley final day of vacation The pages and their story moved briskly and I enjoyed it Later, when asked what it was about, I said It s about a cat who really, really, really wants to find his doggie friend Also ants take over the earth in an almost successful h...

    An ancient colony of intelligent giant ants wages war on humanity, driving us to the brink of extinction The Ant Queen creates an army of allies by transforming the animals of the world into speaking, thinking, vengeful bipeds A war hero, a former housecat by the name of Mort e , searches endlessly for his friend Sheba, who fled on the day of Mort e s transformation I found Mort e frustrating, initially It purports to be science fictionhumans use advanced weaponry, ants communicate chemically and technologically, etc But a hormone is used to change all of animal kind into reading, talking bipeds with opposable thumbs In one night A hormone that works on mammals, and amphibians, and birds, and reptiles Without causing a global ecological cataclysm Better to just call it ant magic.Once I accepted that premise, everything else fell into place and I was able to appreciate the story The pre transformation animal perspectives are excellent Repino s descriptions of how a housecat or...
