Editorial Reviews

Review

"Too often, we seem to forget that liberty and personal freedom are the true American values. Ant Farm is a great and entertaining reminder!" --- Gary Johnson, 2012 U.S. presidential candidate

"I was engrossed by this well-written page-turner!" --Mark Edge, host of the nationally-syndicated radio show, Free Talk Live

"Stephen is a 'true North' when it comes to libertarian consistency and living by his principles. Now he is writing by them, taking creative risks, and breaking new ground artistically. We need more art by our libertarian thinkers, and Stephen is leading the way." --Jennifer A. Grossman, former speechwriter for President George H. W. Bush

About the Author

Stephen Aaron Grey is passionate about liberty. Having traveled the globe as an internationally acclaimed DJ (under the stage name 'Freaky Flow'), he has come to recognize that freedom works, and control does not. A tribute to a George Orwell classic, and simultaneously a nod to those who pursue liberty across the globe, Grey's Ant Farm expresses these ideas in a creative narrative that anyone can easily understand. With an academic history focused on world religions, to boot, Grey possesses an added cultural sensitivity, which contributes to the universal impact of the philosophies that he holds so dear. It's no wonder that many are already calling Ant Farm a new classic.

Very interesting read! Refreshing and eye opening.

Ant Farm had me engaged from the first chapter. It gives you a simple understanding of how our complex society functions, and how it is governed. Stripping it down to brass-tacks, "Ant Farm" provides a great perspective of how society has evolved right from day one.

Format: Paperback
A great Orwellian tale from a smart young author, Stephen Aaron Grey, his first novel, "Ant Farm" articulates brilliantly the question of how far freedoms should be extended before the concept implodes and causes uncontrollable havoc. Grey's story deals with a group of ants who escape from a brutal, restrictive world ruled by domineering cockroaches. The ants dream of a utopia which ultimately becomes unobtainable. As the satirical tale unfolds, "Ant Farm" addresses issues such as the current global economic crisis, gun control and national security. The book's insights are sure to spur conversation and much like Orwell's "Animal Farm," should become a classic as it intelligently weighs the cost liberty.

I was taken back within the first few chapters, not only is the author an inspiring DJ, but his portrayal and new take on classic literature should be read by all and taught in schools. It gives people a much better in depth realization, of not just the world we live in today, but why it is the way it is.

I give the author credit for an interesting premise and carrying it through to the end, but the story is quite lacking. It all plays out from a perspective that cant seem to consider the complexities of human societal interaction. As is so often seen in amateur dystopian fiction, everything seems to fall in to place for the author's voluntaryist vision at first. Plenty of resources and cooperation from all, then people start voting stupidly, entirely forgetting about the reasons they began the experimental utopia. Its very shallow and happens far to quickly. Sadly, this premise could have been better exploited. This is no Animal Farm.

A very refreshing read, unlike any other book I've ever read. The subject is one that everyone can identify with and relate to. I'm going to suggest this book to my book club because its a great conversation starter with thought-provoking subject matter. This book is a reminder of how easy it is to become complacent and obedient when an individual or entity shows force. My kids have almost reached school age, and I am particularly attune to teaching them not to blindly follow authority without questioning and challenging first. I would definitely recommend this book to parents, grandparents, students, book club members, and anyone else!

Stephen Aaron Grey's Ant Farm is an allegory, much like Orwell's Animal Farm, that follows the tribulations of a free market ant community after their escape from a group of evil cockroaches. While I don't completely subscribe to the totally de-regulated ideology of the libertarian free marketeers, I found the basis of the story and the ideas at play were quite thought provoking. The book made me consider the implications of such a society and ruminate on the possibilities, so that seems like a win for the author.

I've only just started reading the book, but it has a great storyline and pulled me in from the get go. Stephen Aaron Gray does an excellent job of introducing the characters and making the ants very relatable to our own lives. I look forward to diving deeper into the book and coming out with some very real, recognizable messages that can be attributed to current cultural situations.

A fun, interesting read! Lots of thoughtful insights into how actual societies act and interact with each other, coupled with an easily digestible storyline highlighting many traits that often accompany social formation, race relations, economic inequality, and politic agendas. Looking forward to more of Mr. Grey's work in the future.
