Review |
Ants and dinosaurs as metaphor for China and US, interdependent but doomed to conflict, in Cixin Liu’s new sci-fi satire

  • As fantastical and imaginative as followers of Cixin Liu would expect, Of Ants and Dinosaurs depicts a symbiotic relationship between a T rex and an ant colony
  • Communal, obedient and organised insects collaborate with boisterous, overconfident dinosaurs, until a religious question divides them
