I thought the book was very readable. I didn't want to put it down once I got into it. Character development is good. I really cared about Little Bee and the others. The plot is not straightforward; there are some twists in the end. As part of the story, I learned some history of Nigeria, so I thought it was well worth reading.
Hi Lady Z,
We discussed LITTLE BEE for our afternoon reading group at the bookshop where I work. Very good discussion. But I really didn't connect with the book. The author shows the reader what it's like for an immigrant living in Britain. I guess I wouldn't have kept reading the book if it weren't for the reading group. Yes, it's well written, but not my "cup of tea".
Welcome to 1001 books. You can keep track of the books you have read from the book, 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die, join in the discussions on the books we are reading for the month (BOTM) or you can debate the merits of the list as some enjoy doing. We hope you will want to join in the choosing of BOTM and the discussions. The current books are pinned to the top for that month. There are older discussions that can be found by searching discussions. If there is any way the group administrator can help further feel free to ask one of us.
