THIS BOOK was my (1960) junior high school years' scariest and greatest fantasy/ horror book. I have looked for literally decades until ...now, with the internet, I was able to find another copyP Scientists exploring Australia's outback discover a land that time forgot, with giant ants who are bigger than men and their praying mantis enemies, while becoming prisoners who end up ... well, buy the book and find out.

I agree with Camp's comment that "North's description of the Australian desert is magnificent". I especially liked it because I have never visited Australia and would like to. It is possibly the most like visiting an alien planet with much unusual flora and fauna. I looked up several things mentioned, especially "the Wedge Tailed Eagle" which was very interesting! Also his information on the tricks for survival in the Outback are very interesting. The realism of the real-world setting makes the lost world setting seem more credible, verisimilitude which is not just made up. What a lot of readers don't understand is that "fiction" is often made up bits and pieces, some imaginary and some from the writers first hand experience. Many writers like H. R. Haggard have been there and done that themselves as far as surviving in the wilderness is concerned.

This novel is very different from North's better known Three Against the Stars. his other novel, The Green Flame, I know nothing about and I imagine there is much kicking around somewhere that readers like me would enjoy seeing reprinted. His ant characters are a pleasant change from monsters which are just there to be monstrous. They have individuality and internal conflicts within their society.The description of their tunnels and architecture is well done. Five men set out in "the sun bitten fastnesses of the Central Australian desert" in a big, utility truck to explore an area little known to science. the men, Nugget Smith, a hardy, physically powerful guide, two young students of science, Tod Gray and Bill Cary classmates at the University of Adelaide in the Science Research Laboratories. Professor Silas Orcutt of The Smithsonian Institution led the group and had financed it. Dr. Gregory Wise of the University of Melborne was his assistant. The beginning of the story sees the five busily poking about in the geology and biology of this exotic locale. We are transported into this exotic setting which becomes even more so when they discover the lost race of intelligent ants. like Camp,I do not wish to go into the plot, perhaps spoiling it for the reader.

Which brings me to illustration. I love Schomburg, Virgil Finley, Frank R. Paul, Lawrence and Bok and numerous others. It irritates me when great novels of fantasy and science fiction are reprinted and the original story was splendidly illustrated but the illustrations are left out. I don't know that this ever was but it should have been. At least 40% of my enjoyment in this field has come from the illustrations. Many artists who did Western and Detective stories really turned on their imaginations for fantasy and science fiction. It's obvious why. Phillip Marlowe goes into a drug store and calls from a telephone booth. Then he gets coffee and a donut. We know what this looks like. "There in the twilight stood the the tall towers of ancient Talymooga, a city as old as time, built to no human scale by an alien race whose wisdom and technical knowledge far exceeded anything human science could conceive." Oh! Yeah! Like that! When you've seen one, you've seen em all! If you like Schomburg, you probably should run down "Chroma, The Art of Alex Schomburg," Jon Gustafson. I found it on Amazon. It has a reproduction of the Winston science fiction endpapers.

great read

I read this decades ago when the idea of reading a story about giant ants was still exciting. It did not appeal so much to me at my age, though I still enjoyed rereading it and visiting a younger me. The characters are one-dimensional, and not altogether convincing, nor especially interesting. I see that other reviewers, also older guys like me, enjoyed it and rated it highly. One of the reasons I reread it, is that I find ants fascinating. The story does at least mention some of the interesting adaptations that ants have developed. The ants in the story are, as the title suggests, man-like ants rather than merely man-sized ants. The two young men in the story behave like two gay people who are falling in love. That is not stated with disapproval, just an unexpected observation.

Sci-fi at it's best, but with an intelligent plot. This book is of the genre of intelligent writers who had deep insight into human nature and foresaw the outcome and consequences of the actions of their characters. Like "On The Beach", thoughtful, emotional, far reaching.

Old sci-fi (fantasy) novel I read as a pre-teen(I'm mid 60's) I still loved it.

Enjoyable reading.
It was the great cover illustration that attracted me to this book "back in the day" when THE ANT MEN served as my introduction to the Winston Science Fiction Series of fabulous juvenile SF novels published in the 1950's and early '60's. This book has many great qualities, and I enjoyed re-reading it as an adult (okay,"senior citizen") as much as I had those many years earlier. But that which disappointed me back then (and why I never re-read it prior to its eventual destruction in a house fire) also annoyed me about it this time. My dilemma is, to mention what I specifically dislike (let alone discuss it), would be to spoil the story for others, something I don't wish to do. Suffice it to say there is something about its dramatic structure that ultimately made the story less than fully satisfactory to me. So be advised that, despite this tale's many good qualities (fully mentioned in previous reviews, and to which I agree), the book may still be something of a let-down. And that is why I rated it 4-stars rather than 5.

NOTE: Those who enjoy THE ANT MEN may also wish to read THE WORLD OF GIANT ANTS by A. Hyatt Verrill (written prior to North's novel). In a South American jungle, a scientist and his native guide discover the portal to a lost city of mutated ants that have evolved into giants. The two men are fascinated by what they see, but their survival and escape require they must not be detected by the creatures. Needless to say, they ARE detected and....
