quality literature: little bee

i want to say that i loved this book.  there are, indeed, many things to love about it.  it's very well written in the stream of consciousness style that i enjoy.  chris cleave takes a long time in developing the characters and it is easy to become involved with the main character, little bee, and her story.  it's a novel that brings a cultural and social awareness.  thumbs up for that.  in the end, though, i felt like little bee's story stopped just as it was getting started.  the conclusion was too abrupt for me.  i also have hang ups about adultery and this one weaves this into the story line a little too lightly for my tastes.  "little bee" is a good read, but not my favorite.

  1. I read this book a few years ago and remember enjoying it. But I must have NOT enjoyed it that much as I can't really remember much about it at all.
