Review

Amazon Best of the Month, February 2009: The publishers of Chris Cleave''s new novel "don''t want to spoil" the story by revealing too much about it, and there''s good reason not to tell too much about the plot''s pivot point. All you should know going in to Little Bee is that what happens on the beach is brutal, and that it braids the fates of a 16-year-old Nigerian orphan (who calls herself Little Bee) and a well-off British couple--journalists trying to repair their strained marriage with a free holiday--who should have stayed behind their resort''s walls. The tide of that event carries Little Bee back to their world, which she claims she couldn''t explain to the girls from her village because they''d have no context for its abundance and calm. But she shows us the infinite rifts in a globalized world, where any distance can be crossed in a day--with the right papers--and "no one likes each other, but everyone likes U2." Where you have to give up the safety you''d assumed as your birthright if you decide to save the girl gazing at you through razor wire, left to the wolves of a failing state. --Mari Malcolm

Short Desription

WE DON''T WANT TO TELL YOU TOO MUCH ABOUT THIS BOOK.

It is a truly special story and we don''t want to spoil it.

Nevertheless, you need to know something, so we will just say this:

It is extremely funny, but the African beach scene is horrific.

The story starts there, but the book doesn''t.

And it''s what happens afterward that is most important.

Once you have read it, you''ll want to tell everyone about it. When you do, please don''t tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds.
