What did you like best about The Bees? What did you like least?
I liked the concept / idea the most. I liked everything else the least.
What could Laline Paull have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Have a different narrator.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Most bee voice characterizations were snobby or holier-than-thou. The regular narration was that way, too.
Was The Bees worth the listening time?
Any additional comments?
The book could have been better story-wise if there were more sub-plots or smarter reveals. The story was far too linear for my liking. The descriptions were rather plain, too -- I expected more of my imagination to be stimulated with visual ideas, for example. There was much text around smells and chemicals -- but these, too, were too narrow to let my imagination play.
