My Reviews

 
Informative, Graphic, Confusing
Some good some bad

The book follows a few plot lines and some of them are really interesting, but the main bookending story, of oscar himself, is easily the weakest. In the end I was glad I read it, but I don't know that I'd tell someone else to read it.

Couldn't put it down

I was completely drawn into the character's lives. The power went out while I was reading and I used a flashlight to keep going.

Hard to read, but sometimes worth it

This book jumps around a lot, from different narrators, to different generations, different countries, even different languages. We had a lively discussion about it, and most of us said we were glad we'd read it, but not sure we'd recommend it.

Great story

an excellent story with lots of other great elements, an interesting perspective on the depression, romance, and the circus.

Little Bee: A Novel by Chris Cleave
 
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Insightful, Interesting
An amazing story

at once tragic and endearing, particularly the voice of little bee herself.

 
Gloomy, Dramatic, Insightful
slow moving depression

this book goes on and on and the protagonist rarely moves forward. not worth the effort.

Interesting perspective

I'd say the most amazing thing about the book is that even though Portia basically starves herself, her plan is based on something reasonable she just takes it too far. It's an interesting look at eating disorders and personal image.
