This is the story of Lily, a teenager who lost her mum when she was very young. Lily herself is the narrator and so we get to be 'inside her head' with her weird and wonderful thoughts during the summer that changes and determines the rest of her life.
Being set in the late 1960s in rural South Carolina the topic of racial discrimination is woven into the storyline and Lily experiences how friendship and love are completely 'colour blind'.
Despite some heartbreaking events, the tone of the book is lighthearted, warm and hopeful. While the story unfolds we also learn about the fascinating and complex social life of bees. It just wants to make you keep bees with August in South Carolina too.

This New York Times best selling novel is a beautifully written, coming of age story, set in rural South Carolina in 1964 against the back drop of the civil rights movement. It is the touching story of a young white girl, fourteen year old Lily Owens, whose mother died in a tragic accident when Lily was about four. Lily lives with her father, a harsh man with whom no love is lost, on a peach farm outside Sylvan, South Carolina. Her mother's death stands between them.
Neglected by her father, Lily is brought up by Rosaleen, a big-hearted black woman, who loves Lily and whom Lily loves. Yet, hers is a lonely existence, compounded by her unquenched thirst for information about her mother, Deborah. All she has left of her mother are some cloudy memories and a box containing a few mementos, among them a picture of a Black Madonna, inscribed with the words, "Tiburon, S.C."
When Rosaleen goes into town to register to vote, she feels empowered by the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and has a run-in with the town's three biggest racists, resulting in Rosaleen being taken into custody. Lily arranges for her to break free. Together, they seek sanctuary in Tiburon, South Carolina, where Lily discovers the mystery of the Black Madonna. Taken in by a trio of middle-aged black women who are sisters, as well as beekeepers, Lily is introduced to the secret life of bees and begins to learn some important life lessons. She also learns something about her mother and finds love where she least expected.
This is simply a beautifully realized novel, written in a true Southern voice by a wonderful writer with a story to tell. It is little wonder that this compelling book has received so many accolades. It is a stunning fiction debut by the author.

Das Buch liest sich ganz flüssig und am Anfang passiert auch noch was. Aber für meinen Geschmack dreht sich die Geschichte nach dem ersten Drittel zu viel um Bienen und eine selbstgebastelte Religion (im Zentrum steht die Jungrau Maria), um noch interessant zu sein. Ich würde es nicht weiter empfehlen - jedenfalls nicht an protestantische Christen. Vielleicht können Katholiken mehr damit anfangen.

This is a wonderful, romantic fantasy story. The rich, descriptive language tells a story of the idealism and introspection of a 14-year-old girl in a way no actual 14-year-old girl could express but could certainly feel. Mystical, fantastic, this is not supposed to be a realistic portrayal of a South Carolina town in the 60s and I think those who criticize the book on that basis are missing the entire point of the book. It's been years since I've been as taken with a story as I've been with this one. Lovely book. Two other recent, entertaining purchases I would also recommend are Haddon's "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" and Perez's "The Losers Club."

The characters were not very believable and mostly flat. Many of the plot elements were forced. Probably a good book for young adults but absolutely nothing special.

Despite the somewhat unpromising description on the back cover, this is a beautiful, interesting and well-crafted novel. It brings to mind Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird", and although of course not a patch on that classic, it is still well worth reading.
The characters have depth, the story keeps you reading and the little bits of information about bees, honey and bee-keeping are particularly interesting.

"The Secret Life of Bees" ist ein leises, ruhiges und einfühlsames Buch. Obwohl klare Rollenverteilung zwischen Gut und Böse besteht schmälert das nicht die Vielschichtigkeit der Geschichte. Man begleitet Lily gerne auf ihrem Weg und taucht mit ein in die Idylle der beekeepers. Und ein Stück heile Welt kann eben auch mal ganz erholsam sein.Ich hab es zumindest gerne gelesen und fand die Parallelen, die Sue Monk Kidd zu der Welt der Bienen gezogen hat wunderschön.

Für mich ist dies das schönste Buch seit langem!! Ich konnte es nicht aus der Hand legen und musste in jeder freien Minute lesen! Man muss lachen, man könnte aber auch weinen, es ist so fesselnd geschrieben, dass man meint, man steckt mitten in der Geschichte drin! Also, ich fand es nur schön!!
