Better World Books Podcast: Chris Cleave

littlebeeHave you ever eaten a dessert so delicious you had no words to describe it?  I mean you could try;  “it’s rich…delicious…so chocolatey”,   or maybe  “so delicate…it melts in your mouth…the perfect blend”, but really the words just don’t do it justice.

That’s kind of how I feel about Little Bee.   And whoever wrote the back cover copy clearly agrees with me.  Little Bee IS a great story – and it IS filled with well developed characters and though it is not drenched in raspberry sauce, it is indescribably good.  It unfolds in a unique way.  It plays with language.  It asks you questions and it puts you in uncomfortable positions without judging.

You will read this book.  I’m not telling you to, I just know you will.  And then you’ll want to talk about it.  So please do.  Tell everyone else to read it, but as the back cover suggests – don’t give anything away.

In the mean time, tune in to my interview the author.  Meet Chris Cleave and  learn a tad more about the book, what’s in it and why.  Then grab a copy and get to reading.

Enjoy the interview, and click here to check out the rest of the great authors talking about their books on our podcast!
