I finished Little Bee last night. It was tremendously sad. Being in a bit of a sad mood at the time I was reading, I kept waiting and hoping for a positive turn in the plot line, or at the least, a somewhat happy ending. I got neither.
But, it was a good read and very well written. I didn’t know until the end that the book was based, in part, on actual events — making it all the more hard to digest. I wouldn’t discourage anyone from reading Little Bee, but I think I’m ready for something a bit more lighthearted next. On to Breakfast at Tiffany’s!
