Book Review – Little Bee by Chris Cleave

19 Aug

by Contributing Writer Sanjee Bandara



Summary (from Goodreads):

Two women collide lives on a Nigeria beach. One must make a terrible choice. Two years later, they meet again and the story starts …


This was my first novel read from beginning to end on my e-reader (previous attempts to read electronically were disappointing – couldn’t get through more than three pages at most) – success! Thank you to my friend, Mumsibles of, for the recommendation!

So, what kept me hooked was the narrative structure of the novel – the story being told by the two principal characters. The voices of the two women (love that!) are distinct and full of the emotions that bind them because of one chance meeting.

I don’t want to give too much away because it is a novel that needs to be experienced, and it certainly is that. Recommended.
