Time in "We are the Ants" by Shaun David Hutchinson

Time is an essential feature in the book “We Are the Ants.” Not only is the time the great idea that the author is trying to explain, but he also reveals grief, guilt, love, etc. These thoughts help the main character to understand the people that love, curse, praise, and undermine him.
