"Little Bee"

Mar 26, 2010

The only thing missing in the brief synopsis on the back of Chris Cleave’s novel might just be a non-disclosure agreement. “We don’t want to tell you what happens in this book. It is a truly special story and we don’t want to spoil it…Once you read it, you’ll want to tell your friends about it, please don’t tell them what happens.” Who wouldn’t be intrigued? Little Bee combines humor with pathos in this tale of friendship, national identity, responsibility, grief and redemption; a formula that has garnered it international praise. This thought provoking novel touches on many real world issues, plight of refugees, the quiet violence of selfishness, the last vestiges of hope in a deteriorating world, and most importantly the dilemma of being human…Just don't tell anyone about it.
