WICKED BUGS The Louse That Conquered Napoleon's Army and Other Diabolical Insects

by | Read by Coleen Marlo

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Fans of “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” and Guinness World Records will love this quirky little science book from the author of WICKED PLANTS. The fun is in the disturbing thrill you get as you discover startling facts such as this: The leading cause of epilepsy in the world today is a tapeworm in the brain. Coleen Marlo has a grip on the creepiness factor, taking on passages that make you cringe with a gleeful intensity in her voice that brings out the dark humor. Her deadpan delivery draws you in and lulls you into letting your guard down, only to sneak up and clobber you with details that will have you shivering with dreadful delight.
