The Death of Bees ë Nd Nelly left on their own in Glasgow's Hazlehurst housing estate attempt to avoid suspicion until Marnie can become a legal guardian for her younger sisterWritten with fierce sympathy The Death e. Lisa O’Donnell’s The Death of Bees is a really good read for a debut novel It is not a happy tale It is a grim raw sad and thought provoking story It’s a really uick read a book that you would read in a few hours because you can’t help but keep turning the pages to find out what happens next I loved the short chapters and the way the story was told from the perspective of the three main characters I completely enjoyed the author’s style of writing The prose at times was razor sharp focused and most importantly realistic At other times the prose was very beautiful lyrical and almost poetic The blending of the two variations of prose really worked well for this novelThe three main characters sisters Marnie and Nelly and their neighbour Lennie are all very different and wonderfully interesting in their own individual way Different individuals they may be yet they are all seeking normality acceptance and love Marnie headstrong bold daring and brave but behind the bravado there was a young girl really struggling with the appalling circumstances of her life Lennie too was a great character I really felt sorry for him and loved his reminisces of his past and his thoughts on his relationship with Joseph in particular But it was Nelly who was most definitely my favourite character It was like O’Donnell plucked Nelly from a novel set in the 1800’s and slapped her bang in the middle of modern day Glasgow unfortunately a Glasgow full of sualor abuse and unhappiness Nelly really made me smile a lot throughout the book I think her personality was a façade for dealing with her shocking reality She was a strange odd character indeed yet the chapters she featured in were my most favourite Overall a strange odd and wonderfully weird book but an excellent debut novel and I look forward to reading from this author Read Ç PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Í Lisa ODonnell

Lisa ODonnell Í 2 Read A riveting brilliantly written debut novel The Death of Bees is a coming of age story in which two young sisters attempt to hold the world at bay after the mysterious death of their parentsMarnie a. I was going to give this four stars but you know what I say fuck it Five stars bitches This book is fucked up I am not exaggerating If you are sueamish when it comes to heavy swearing drugs gore fifteen year olds having sex with older men and lots of death and seemingly unaffected 12 year old girls you shouldn't touch this book with a ten foot pole And honestly there are parts of The Death of Bees that made me frown and shift uncomfortably in my chair Especially when Marnie who is fucking 15 years old mind you goes off to have sex with the ice cream man who is married and has kids and sells drugs instead of ice cream This book really had some morbid humor in it and other times it's just plain morbid And I loved every fucked up second of it Not the sex with older men part; the morbid dark poetic part which was basically the whole book It is brutal It is honest It is blunt It makes me never want to move to ScotlandI mean seriously guys Marnie was riding a bike through a park and people are literally doing it under blankets all over the place apparently I mean what come on what is this wtf no wonder this fifteen year old fucks guys like Sherlock and Merlin ruin lives The characters were extremely uniue and likeable because they're human and they make mistakes Bad shameful mistakes but everyone does and it adds to an already dark atmosphere in the novel At times poetic and other times just damn weird The Death of Bees is incredibly deep and oddly humorous occasionally but it might just make you cry like it did me I am eagerly awaiting anything this woman writes next Don't click this Go read the book instead Do it NOW view spoiler Lennie Why he have to die hide spoiler
