6/12 📚 Very interesting book, surprised it held my interest given it‘s a story about bees. Really believable imagining of a bee society, with parallels to religious and authoritarian human societies. But the ending and outcome was predictable. ⭐️ 6/10

This oversized picture book was very informative about Honey Bees 🐝. It talked about how cultures throughout history viewed the bees. For instance, the ancient Egyptians thought they came from Ra‘s tears. It goes into the evolution of bees, pollination, and bee keeping. Great book!

This was okay. Better toward the end, but I just couldn‘t get into it the way I do with a really good book. It had a feel a bit like Animal Farm. A metaphor for dictatorship and those who are not supposed to ask questions of their leadership.

My husband actually said he misses those orange and black Halloween taffies 🤢 also in college organic chem we made some banana scent that filled the chemistry corridor with banana odor. It was wholly chemically derived, and the smell matches the taste of these banana taffies! Maybe the bees would enjoy when they‘re starving through the onset of winter 🌺🐝🍭🍬🍫

wow i had no idea this book was going to be so rich. dripping with magical realism and feeling this book has so many beautiful words and strange images every so paragraphs i want to share. i‘m sorry it took me so long to read 🌫 i love the use of magical/paranormal metaphors to convey real life situations, ive found myself reading between the lines with this book and totally absorbed into its strange world
