The Bees - Laline Paull


Dystopian science fiction? Political fable? Over-researched anthropomorphised animal story? Well, yes, all of those. Which is quite an achievement. Even more of an achievement is that it's also a good story - I had to wrench my library copy off my mum and buy her one for herself. Overall, I'm not entirely sure what to make of this odd novel with its improbably near-immortal multi-skilled bee heroine but I think I enjoyed it.
