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

I uite enjoyed this story which was macabre for sure but still I found myself smiling throughout The girls have buried their dead abusive parents in the garden and no that is not funny yet all the events going on around them and their uick thinking had me turning the pages one after the other to see what else could possibly happen Marnie and her too cool to be kind attitude little Nelly's very British way of talking calling Lenny an old chap and Marnie's boyfriend a cad and a blaggard and neighbor Lenny's lonely compassion all swept me up as the three of them make a life together as if nothing's wrong Love didn't exist for any of them for uite some time before the parents made their exit so as Nelly said to their memory A good ruddy riddance to you

Lisa ODonnell ´ 2 Summary

The Death of BeesE and 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 De. After I Capture the Castle which was darlings frankly a complete disahster what do I do but pick up another novel narrated mostly by a teenage girl However this one was a turtle of a different complexion Indeed it was rather wonderfulSo here we have a novel about miserable scummy British in this case Scottish underclass lives which can be viewed in many British movies such as Neds Broken A Way of Life Ladybird Ladybird Nil by Mouth and so forth I mostly enjoy this kind of movie in the same way I used to enjoy Leonard Cohen albums You end up vibrating mildly from utter horror The recipe for this novel was slice half a pound of The Cement Garden by Ian McEwan in which the kids bury their parents and live alone in the house; add in several pints of a wonderful Japanese movie called Nobody Knows where the abandoned kids manage to avoid detection by the authorities for months and grate over the top a generous helping of the Voice of Baba the foulmouthed hilarious best friend in Edna O’Brien’s Country Girls novels Then serve up the resulting dish in one to three page sections spoken by sisters Nelly and Marnie and neighbour Lennie somewhat like the interviews to camera in Modern Family Cameron Haley and Alex only with rotting corpses and dealing jellies instead of adopted Vietnamese babies and dude ranch holidays Since The Cement Garden Nobody Knows The Country Girls and Modern Family are four of my favourite things way ahead of schnitzel with noodles this novel was good to goAnd it went like a rocket Read in one day Great stuffHonesty bids me confess that I did cavil slightly at two aspects1 Is it credible that a 15 year old girl and a 12 year old girl could in the depths of a Scottish winter dig a grave for a man’s body in the garden Hmmm Wouldn’t the ground be rock hard Last time I tried to bury a man in my back garden in winter I gave up after three hours of fruitless hacking and confessed to the police2 The younger sister talks in an insanely poshaffectedantiuated manner which is entertaining but deeply silly Eg He was a very pleasant lad and strangely familiar to me not that I got a chance to uiz the fellow for he ran off and with the greatest of haste to fetch some milk which was rather a pointless feat given we hadn’t even been offered a cup of teaContrast that with sister Marnie describing a painful first meeting with her boyfriend’s rich liberal parents The tension in the room is well tasty unlike the green tea they’re serving in the tiny wee teapot with matching egg cups They’re dying for me to ask about it so they can babble about their halcyon days living in Tibet Five minutes in the room and these people are seriously giving me the dry bokeOh Marnie you crack me up
