I find Chris Cleave a very easy author to read, and his content is certainly very thought provoking. I was pulled in to this book by it's description in a Borders email, the same one on the back. I thought, oh... it must be good. And it was.
I then went on to order Incendiary I found that just as thought provoking.
I do find it interesting that both books have female protagonists who are unfaithful to their husbands and aren't particularly remorseful about it. I will try not to read into that too much.
Still, Little Bee ( or The Other Hand in Aus) is certainly worth the read, even if you're not normally into that genre... I'm normally not. What genre you say? I'm not telling... muahahaa
