The Death of Bees - Lisa O'Donnell Read my full review @ opinion: I had such promise for this book that opened so strongly. Sadly, it fell apart pretty quickly. It is very, very rare that I have nothing good to say about a book. In fact, I think the last time was about 2 years ago.First, I felt the author had jumped from crisis to crisis rather than developing a strong storyline. This came off as being rather choppy in its presentation. Almost as though she made it up as she went along versus outlining the story and knowing it going in. Although, this is a story about family dysfunction and children left in their parents' poor decision making wake, it just felt very discombobulated to me.Unfortunately, to boot, this story is told from 3 different points of views told in first person voices. This continues to bury the story as to what exactly is occurring.
