Lisa says… Read This! (June 2009)

By

Little Bee, by Chris Cleave, is a book that you will not want to end, yet, you will not be able to put it down. The inside jacket cover does not give you any information about the novel except that this is a story of two women with a special story, and once you’ve read it, you’ll want to tell everyone all about it. However, it also says don’t tell anyone what happens because the magic of Little Bee is in how it unfolds. I truly agree, I’ve never read anything quite like it.

I fell in love with the characters immediately and continue to reflect on this story emotionally. Little Bee is a Nigerian girl who seeks refuge in England after fleeing violence in her country. It’s witty and intelligent, yet violent in its truthfulness. It could be viewed as somewhat political, but it’s too beautiful. Little Bee says of her story she may have some sad words to share but she also says “A sad story states the storyteller survived.” To say more may simply ruin the read. Know this: Chris Cleave has proven himself as a great author. The Washington Post said this book “will blow you away.” The BOOKCLUB buzz this month is Little Bee.
