Perhaps I just like this because it's one of the first gamebooks I ever read, but it's a pretty entertaining adventure. The title doesn't really seem very appropriate to most of the story, though.
This is one strange sci-fi book. In fact, it likes to ramble and spit up bits of random background so much it could have almost become the next Space and Beyond. Fortunately, while lacking much in the way of coherence, Prisoner of the Ant People is spared that fate by having a few simple things lacked by its predecessor. They are a) memorable sidekick characters, and b) a goal. B isn't an inspired goal by any means, but it's there and it's appreciated. In the end this book succeeds and remains one of my favorite out of the series because of its oddness rather than in spite of it.
A fun adventure, but just too weird.
