Our latest book club book was Little Bee, the story of a young Nigerian refugee and how her life affects and intertwines with a British couple. This one is hard. Do I recommend it? Absolutely. Did I enjoy it ... well, no. Here's the thing, the novel can be graphic and the subject matter is disturbing at best but the pace is good and it's not a difficult read. Fortunately (or unfortunately) Chris Cleave uses his words well and paints vivid pictures. His characters are well developed, flaws and all and I found myself amazed that a man could write women so well. So yeah, if you're looking for a quick-paced engaging book, pick up this one.
