The Bees by Laline Paull
The first book from my 2017 Reading Challenge, I read in 24 hours. I could not put it down!
I won’t do a full on literary review, but I will say this book kicked off my new year perfectly.
To start with, this particular hardback cover is fantastic, it’s so beautiful and can tell a huge part of the story just by looking at it.
The story itself was beautiful, imagining everything from a tiny honeybee’s perspective is so refreshing and ties in nicely to my challenge as this can come under the ‘Book from a non-human perspective’ perfectly.
If you don’t really want to know exactly how honeybees work but you’re bored of human societal constructs being forced onto animal characters this one is for you.
