I have found my favourite book of 2009 so far, and will be very surprised if I find one to beat it this year. It is called Little Bee by Chris Cleave. For those who remember my 07 pick, April in Paris, and 08 Resistance, this is right up there with them.
I wish I could go into great detail about the book but I can't and you will find out why when you read it. It is such a powerful book and has left me thinking about it for months after I read it.
I urge you to read it for yourself and experience a truly fantastic read. One of the best you will ever have.
Let me know what you think.
