Would you listen to The Beekeeper's Lament again? Why?
I didn't listen to it straight through as the content is dry - you need to love bees to love this book - so I listened in stages but the book is well done and interesting. Performance was great.

From a beekeeper
I could hear Miller's personality and voice as I sit here and wire frames, wondering if the crazy rain will let up so virgins that I grafted from Dr. Greg Hunt's Purdue University Mite biter breeders can take mating flights. The writing is so damn good. Such a great writer; well researched on so many levels. The reader's voice. So in tune and so real. Incredible incredible performance. I'm a man and not afraid to say that this made me smile and cry at the same time, more than once. Thank you so much Hanna Nordhaus and Xe Sands.
