Review: The Bees

The Bees The Bees by Laline Paull
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What an amazing ride!!!!

This was a glorious tale, I really enjoyed it! I'd been looking since Mort e for another book that brought animals to a level of human consciousness. I would have enjoyed almost anything similar, but this one is probably the best recommendations that the Goodreads audience has given me!

This book follows the story of a lowly sanitation worker bee, Flora 717, and how her life is within the colony. She has an overwhelming love for the Queen, the Holy Mother, and there is almost a religious fury in her devotion but a moral tale that everyone sins is woven through it. No one but the Queen may breed, but Flora (who lay three eggs of her own) loved each one with a fervent abandon while she is cognizant of her sins against the hive and Holy Mother.

Flora teaches that no one is perfect and sometimes that imperfection can be a wonderful thing!

Five hearty stars and two enthusiastic thumbs up for this one! If you have any recommendations for stories similar, please let me know!
