This book is the monthly pick for my sci-fi book club so at least a 1/3 of the way through this book I thought the bees were aliens, then I didn't think they were aliens, then I was back to thinking they were aliens, finally figuring out it's just about bees. I think I hurt my brain.
So after finishing this book (it's really about bees), I ended up really liking it and actually tearing up at the end. This author has a wonderful imagination. 4 out of 5 stars.
