Little Bee by Chris Cleave

Little Bee

Chris Cleave (Adult Fiction)

This review will be a deviation from my standard format in order to respect the wishes of the book’s author…and with good reason.

Little Bee is the ONLY book that I’ve ever seen that has a note on the back cover stating, “We don’t want to tell you what happens in this book.”  Whether a brilliant marketing ploy or a genuine desire to thoroughly surprise its reader, it works.  It’s an irresistible hook.

What I will share is that Little Bee tells the story of two very different women from two very different socioeconomic backgrounds whose worlds unexpectedly collide and an unimaginable (and truly shocking) choice is made.  Two years later they meet again, and this is where the story begins.

Honestly, the less said about this book, the more you will savor it.  It will evoke every possible emotion and will leave you breathless and spellbound.  The storytelling is first rate and the characters will leave an indelible mark on your heart.  I promise you will enjoy (perhaps even love) this book and if you do, I hope you will NOT tell your friends about it…only share the title.

Rating: 5/5
