A Fabulous and Intense Read

I recently finished reading Little Bee by Chris Cleave.



It was a very serious read, which almost always appeals to me.  Sue, I like a good adventure novel or spy thriller, but my favorite books deal with The Human Condition (think Joyce Carol Oates).  This book does not disappoint in this department!  Chris Cleave's writing style is compelling and I zipped right through this book.

There's something so incredibly satisfying in reading a book whose story really sticks with you.

Well, I just purchased this from Amazon (based on your post.) Looks like the book is getting some very good reviews. Have a great day, Vickie!

Oh, they reviewed this book on NPR a couple of months ago and the author was there. I was mesmerized by her story. Thanks for reminding me that I want to read this book...I was out driving as I listened to the interview.
