Sie ist von dem Buch begeistert. Alle Rezensionen anzeigen. In der lebensbejahenden Gemeinschaft von farbigen Menschen lernt Lily, worauf es im Leben ankommt und vor allem, was es bedeutet zu lieben und geliebt zu werden.
Sue Monk Kidd schreibt einfühlsam und kann wunderbar erzählen. Ein wenig wünscht man sich, selbst eine Auszeit im Schutze der drei Schwestern verbringen zu können.
Ihre Protagonistin Lily ist immer ehrlich und schonungslos mit sich selbst und anrührend in ihrer Verletzlichkeit.
Man fühlt mit ihr, möchte sie trösten und beschützen. Sie ist nur eine Art, die hier aufgezeigt wird, wie man mit den Grausamkeiten im Leben zurecht kommen kann.
Auf recht unterschiedliche Weise wird auch das Thema der Rassentrennung aufgegriffen. Wie einfühlsam und leise aufgezeigt wird, dass die Hautfarbe den geringsten Unterschied zwischen Menschen ausmacht.
Dieses Buch hat mich überrascht, fasziniert und sehr berührt. Zeitweise hat es mich schon gedrängt, den Fortgang der Handlung zu beschleunigen, da immer klar ist, dass etwas passieren muss, das die Idylle auflöst.
Jedoch unterstreicht der langsame Erzählstil die Trägheit in der Hitze des Sommers und dass manche Dinge ihre Zeit brauchen.

The Secret Life of Bees tells the story of a year-old white girl, Lily Melissa Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed.
She lives in a house with her abusive father, whom she refers to as T. They have a no-nonsense maid, Rosaleen, who acts as a surrogate mother for Lily.
The book opens with Lily's discovery of bees in her bedroom. Then, after Rosaleen is arrested for pouring her bottle of "snuff juice" on three white men, Lily breaks her out of the hospital and they decide to leave town.
They begin hitch-hiking toward Tiburon, SC, a place written on the back of an image of the Virgin Mary as a black woman, which Deborah, her mother, had owned.
They spend a night in the woods with little food and little hope before reaching Tiburon. There, they buy lunch at a general store, and Lily recognizes a picture of the same "Black Mary" but on the side of a jar of honey.
They receive directions to the origin of that honey, the Boatwright residence. They are introduced to the Boatwright sisters, the makers of the honey: August, May, and June, who are all black.
Lily makes up a story about being an orphan. Lily and Rosaleen are invited to stay with the sisters. View 2 comments. Shelves: book-club-popular-fiction.
It was ironic that I read most of this book on Mother's Day. At the core, this book isn't about race relations, the Virgin Mary, or even beekeeping, though those are all interesting parts of the story.
It's a book about mothers. Mothers who are imperfect, mothers who make mistakes, and women who become mothers because they see people who need to be loved.
I can't readily connect to most of those other topics, but everyone on the planet knows what it's like to have--or need--a mother in their liv It was ironic that I read most of this book on Mother's Day.
I can't readily connect to most of those other topics, but everyone on the planet knows what it's like to have--or need--a mother in their lives.
The other part I loved about this book is the writing style. I've read very few books with such fanastic, simple imagery and accessible symbolism.
I wish I underlined all my favorite metaphors in the book like the dragonflies stitching the air and I loved the parallels between the bee colonies and the women living in the pink house.
It's books like these that make me want to write. View all 3 comments. That's 28 out of 35 students. The rest of the class gave it an OK: 3 or 4 stars.
So my giving it 5 stars has been backed by research into the general public's taste. I don't need entertainment, I need information.
But as a story teller, occasional writing class instructor, I like to keep up with some of the new fiction.
Bees is pretty good. I don't get a sense of the forced or trite here like I do in a lot of fiction.
In reading most fiction, I can almost hear the writer thinking. I guess it's because I write and my intimate knowledge of the craft allows me to see a lot before it comes.
Kind of like an actor who you know is just acting. In Ali there is no Smith and in Ray there is no Fox. Art works best when it's done by the talented who tap into the moment so right, so purely it stops being art and becomes real.
Bees is real. In the overall scheme of analysis, these issues were cosmetic, superficial at best. Most liked it: In my class. At Goodreads. On Amazon.
Maybe it's writer-wanna-be frustration or other personal issues. Bottom line, I was impressed and I've read a lot of stories and written many myself.
I know the difficulties involved in making a story work, making is real, and connecting to readers. This book does all that and more. Highly recommended.
View all 12 comments. This was a harmless, heart warming book that did not change my life or enrich my thinking in any large way - except perhaps that I am slightly less afraid of bees.
One thing that is a slight pet peeve with me is the healing power apparently inherent in the culture of the 'other'. Thank you minority culture!
All black women are not royalty, "like hidden queens". But a little known fact is that all, ALL old asian men are kung fu masters.
It is a good beach book. So there. View all 4 comments. Is it ever not going to be problematic to have a book about a young white girl finding nurturing black mother figures in the South?
It's not the book itself, necessarily, just the part where this is practically a genre unto itself, and I haven't run into any books certainly not with the stature of this one about the young girl in the South who is black, and her experiences.
Also the part where the black women are mostly there to mother the young white girl, and all of their differences tend to Is it ever not going to be problematic to have a book about a young white girl finding nurturing black mother figures in the South?
Also the part where the black women are mostly there to mother the young white girl, and all of their differences tend to come down to eccentricities.
This is probably unduly harsh. The Secret Life of Bees is not a bad book - it's an easy read, it's a comfortable read, even in its portrayal of the impact of the Civil Rights movement on a small town that is interacting with it mostly through the media.
It's just the overall impact of the stories authors are choosing to tell, that publishers are choosing to publish, and readers are choosing to read.
Does someone have something to recommend to me that breaks out of this mold? Lily is the only daughter of an unloving white man. Her mother died when she was very little.
She and Rosaleen, the black woman who raised her after her mother's death hit the road after an altercation between Rosaleen and the biggest racists in town.
They find themselves in a small town in South Carolina, where they are both more or less adopted into the family of three black women, sisters, August, June, and May.
Lily struggles with how to tell the sisters who she really is and why she's there, as well as anger and guilt about her mother and father.
Meanwhile, the sisters nurture. August takes care of the bees and takes Lily under her wing. June, a school teacher, refuses to marry the man she loves.
May feels the horrors of the world far too sharply. Other black women come to their house for their own brand of syncretic worship, focusing around a statue of a Black Virgin Mary.
This book deals with some fairly difficult issues, so why do I categorize it as not particularly challenging?
It deals with abuse, suicide, racism, and violence. None of those are easy topics. And yet, this book never reached out and grabbed me by the throat.
It seemed to dance over these topics, not ignoring them, but not fully engaging with them either. It lacked anger, and some of these issues deserved some anger.
There were angry characters, but they were mediated by the nurturing aura of the book itself. I think part of the problem was that every time I picked it up, I kept pulling away from it, wondering why we so often seem to need this mediating figure of the young white woman in order to tell these stories.
Wondering where the books about just August, and June, and May were. Or Rosaleen. Are they not being written? Or not published?
Or am I just entirely oblivious to a bunch of books I should be reading? Crossposted to Smorgasbook View all 23 comments.
Read it. Enjoyed it. Any day now I expect to be entirely swallowed up by my own home-grown vagina. If you've read The Help , you don't need to read this.
One contemporary coming of age book about a white southern girl amongst black women discovering life in s is plenty. Sue Monk Kidd's explosively popular I'm going to go out on a very sturdy limb and guess that this was an Oprah book The Secret Life of Bees is a perfectly enjoyable read that any mother would love.
Oh the imagery, the ambian Read it. Oh the imagery, the ambiance, the estrogen! Halfway through I wanted nothing more than to curl up in my cardy on the couch with a cuppa herbal something-or-other and sip the sweet nectar of these succulent words.
They flowed like honey: sweet, warm, and slow… Oh so slow at times. The soft ideas about religion, love and the mother-daughter bond hum against your ears, the buzz of thought never going beyond a distant whirring zzzzzzzz.
With no plan other than to get away from her home town of Sylvan, Lily and Rosaleen headed in the general direction of Tiburon.
Sanctuary was granted to Lily and Rosaleen when they found themselves at the garish, bright pink home of beekeeping sisters, May, June and August, whom Lily called the Calendar Ladies.
As Lily worked with August and the bees, and Rosaleen in the kitchen with May, Lily found herself confused and lost. Would she ever find peace?
Would Lily ever find out what happened to her mother all those years ago? I loved the writing; the descriptions; the humour sprinkled through the story.
There was sadness and love, hope and forgiveness — but ultimately The Secret Life of Bees is the coming of age for a young girl who had more than enough tragedy in her life.
I highly recommend this book; my second by this author… View all 8 comments. A coming-to-age novel set in South Carolina at the height of desegregation.
Lily is a lovable pre-teen who'd grown up believing she killed her mother accidentally and is trying to escape a brutal, abusive father.
Filled with a cast of eccentric characters, Lily runs away with Rosaleen, a black servant, and finds herself in a beekeeper's sanctuary, where secrets come spilling out of the closet for a cymbal-clashing ending.
Although rendered very close to the voice of a believable pre-teen, the A coming-to-age novel set in South Carolina at the height of desegregation.
Although rendered very close to the voice of a believable pre-teen, the prose is riddled with cliches and mawkishness and characters who liked to stare off into the distance whenever a dramatic moment came to pass.
Here's an example, "The music sheplayed was the kind that sawed through you, cutting into the secret chambers of your heart and setting the sadness free.
The most rewarding sections were the dialogues, and the characters of the Daughters of Mary as well as the beekeeper, August and her sisters named after the summer months, June and May as well as Lily's flirtation with the black young male helper, Zach Taylor.
There were also great dramatic moments, when the stories surrounding desegregation rose to the fore although the style tended to underdramatize these sections.
Honestly, it's hard to fathom how this book was nominated for the Orange Prize, and an excerpt was selected as a Best American Short Story, as well as becoming a phenomenal number one bestseller.

I read it. It was fine. I do not mind that, but be good at manipulating me. This novel is excessively obvious about it. However, the text has moments of nice insight and thought.
The ideas of mothers, motherhood and feminine love and friendship are explored, but at a very surface level.
There is no depth. This is made painfully obvious by the ending of the text, which is pure melodrama. The potential was there. Goodness, this book could have been great.
Instead, it settled for decent. View all 7 comments. I hesitantly picked up this book based upon numerous recommendations; frankly, the back of the book blurb just didn't sound like my sort of thing.

As a Virginian well-versed in humid Southern summers and Southern cooking, I thought Kidd did a fantastic job of evoking that feeling of sweat trickling slowly between your boobs.
Another point of interest is the way that feminism is worked into the novel. I'm not a huge fan of I-am-woman-hear-me-roar overt girlpower in film or literature, but this book is populated with female characters and about eight different kinds of love and strength and mystery.
Throw in some very well done race issues, and I was willing to forgive the almost insanely inappropriately happy ending.
Do I have nitpicks with the book? Will I read it again? This is a book ripe for book group meetings.
Because I'm only reviewing my favorite books -- not every book I read. Consider a novel's presence on my Goodreads bookshelf as a hearty endorsement.
I can't believe I just said "hearty. Oct 10, A. Shelves: am-i-taking-crazy-pills , southern-us , womans-work , reviewed-by-yt. Read this in a couple of hours while I was babysitting.
Not always a good sign; particularly when the reason I am looking for material is that the only other house options are natural health and yoga magazines, as I am a dedicated chainsmoker with terrible posture.
Some of the ideas patly blurbed on the back seemed compelling. Mary definitely wasn't a WASP, so that's interesting; beekeeping is fertile for extended metaphor; and tough runaway girlchildren are a favorite, chixploitation or no.
But Read this in a couple of hours while I was babysitting. But while I was looking for short and sweet plot, this book knocked me about the head with near-narcoleptic tropes about culture, color, gender and otherness.
Did you know that black folk are all like, all proud and exotic, even the womenfolk?!? Did you know this is bullshit, Sue Monk Kidd?
Some Flannery fucken O'Connor oughta burn that vaseline right off the lens. View all 16 comments. The Secret Life of Bees is a cliched soap opera, the sort of book that would provoke rave responses at book clubs composed of mostly bored housewifes.
It's a pretty formulaic tale of a young, southern girl whose daddy abuses her, so she decides to run away with her black servant and find solace in an unlikely place.
The story is a reversal of Huck Finn's tale, which results in a schmaltzy schlock. As if to get back at all males, all women in this novel are presented as inherently good.
There are about 8 mother figures in this book. This may be the reason why the novel is so popular with so many sunday feminist that scour the depths of the internet.
As the novel was written by a white woman, there portrayal of black people is as patronizing as possible.
The author doesn't use any sort of vernacular or vocabulary that would suggest that a black person is speaking after all, we are talking about the 60's south.
We see black people as black only because of their neverending good actions. There are of course the obligatory magical negro figures, the beekeping sisters our heroine reaches early in the novel - they have nothing else to do but sport sage-like advice about the world, bees and honey.
Do you by any chances wonder about the premise? After all, Lily escapes to find the truth about her mother whom she most propably killed, as she remembers holding a gun and a BANG!
If you're reading the novel to find out, you might as well give up - Lily's mother is killed off like Bambi's mom to start the story, which turns out to be a patronizing tale about racism.
Well, the Civil Rights Movement is an important theme in the novel, and Sue Monk Kidd certainly forces the reader to wish good for these poor black women.
However, she makes a mistake of toning down the racist hate - in her world, a group of teenagers of opposite sexes and races driving around the town is never noticed; in real world they would be immediately violently separated, she sent off home and he at best badly beaten.
A female black servant responds strongly to three antagonizing white males and even spits on their shoes - such herocism works good in movies, but most propably would have ended less than well for the woman..
All racism comes from the white, of course; there is no single black person opposing to the white girl living with three black women and being in a relationship with a young black man.
It works both ways, something which Sue Monk Kidd seems to have forgotten; she fondly remembers Marthin Luther King, but is fast to forget about Malcolm X.
Everything here is washed down; there is absolutely zero ambiguity. Black-good, White-bad. Lily escapes from her own father to be accepted without question by the black women; and in the end she won't care much about her own mother because she found new mother figures, all black of course.
And her black boyfriend goes to enroll into a white school. Was that even possible back then? According to the author it was.
The white priest kicks the girl out of church because she led in a black servant, but don't worry about the religious future of the precious infant - there is a Black Madonna, and her black daughters who are more than willing to allow Lily join their club.
I can see how this book will provoke lots of discussion about its "Interesting topic" There are classroom questions in my copy! The story has been done several times and to a much better result - think Harper Lee and Mark Twain.
Steer clear of the "modern classic" - the bee isn't buzzworthy. View all 20 comments. I really enjoyed the story about a growing girl finding her way during a difficult time in history to the family she was always meant to have.
The story is set during the early desegregation period in the US when hostility and resistance to change was the norm.
Lily is trying to uncover her mother's past while dealing with some recent trouble with her caretaker Rosaleen. In her quest, she meets three sisters.
August, the wise matriarch of the lot. June, the skeptical one. May, the sweet but trou I really enjoyed the story about a growing girl finding her way during a difficult time in history to the family she was always meant to have.
May, the sweet but troubled one. The sisters take her and Rosaleen into their home, becoming more to this girl than you could imagine: a family of choice.
There's a controversial love interest with a boy named Zack who is black, Lily being white. Their little moments are sweet and tender.
Lily's relationship with her father is complex and sad. She develops beautifully in the story in ways that are very clear to the reader. The plot was interesting and the writer clearly did her research.
All in all a great read and a good break from my romances. Safety: Nothing overtly sexual between Lily and Zack.
Only kisses. No rape. Every little thing wants to be loved. What starts off as a quiet story about a young girl in South Carolina, turns into a strong tale of race, prejudice, and finding love in the most unexpected places.
Lily Owens' mother died when she was 4 from an accident with a gun and Lily has always felt responsible. Her mothers death left her in the care of her abusive father who she calls T-ray and their housekeeper Rosaleen - Lily's only friend.
When r "Above all, send the bees love. When racial tension explodes in their local town and Rosaleen is arrested, she and Lily run away, to Tiburon, SC - a place name Lily found on one of her mothers possessions.
Here they find the home of the three Boatwright sisters - August, June and May. They run a beekeeping business and take on the two runaways.
From here comes a tale of discovery, healing and forgiveness - all with the undercurrent of the discrimination and racism that fueled the Southern states in the s.
This book would be absolutely amazing, if there was anything ingenious about this book. Sounds familiar? There is more. She is motherless, and is laden with guilt over having accidently killed her mother.
Her father is evil. No really, like pure, unadulterated evil , with no redeeming qualities or anything. He is abusive!
And tortures Lily. Never saw that one coming! Oh yeah, must be the story! Except for the 3 May sisters, all the characters had less life than carbon cut outs.
Lily sounds nothing like a 14 year old. She is either drowned in sadness over her mother or is busy checking out the hot Zack guy. There was something highly unrealistic about her character.
It was like the author knew about aspects people like in a character, and just added them up. Like different pieces of separate puzzles, forcefully assembled together.
The very same goes for the story. Oh so convenient circumstances, highly predictable chain of events, and then a rushed and dressed up climax.
Such a waste of a beautiful prose, and bee allegories. I suspect that even the bees would be offended. And so would black Mary. If you just kick out lily, and events relating to her then the novel would be absolutely enchanting.
Why is a happily ever after absolutely necessary even at the cost of a realistic plot? A very very disappointing novel.
So I found the tid bit of information about bees before every chapter. The bee song was amazing too! But no extra star for those. I actually liked this book.
I only read the reviews afterwards and noticed that a lot of people complain of the stereotyping, and embarrassingly - I was so in love with the characters that it didn't phase me, I'm ashamed.
I did notice that the African Americans were all painted as stereotypes but I figured that the author was just using a voice that kept with the times - back then, that's how everything was seen.
But now I feel a little conflicted because god damn, I hate stereotypes and I'm usu I actually liked this book. But now I feel a little conflicted because god damn, I hate stereotypes and I'm usually the first to jump up-and-down and shake my fist.
I loved Lily, I have been struggling to actually like a protagonist in a novel for a long while, so was pleased when I took to Lily immediately.
I think that it was a real honest, true voice of a fourteen year old, you could feel the wide-eyed wonder, the naivity and the angst without it being irritating.
I loved how she grew and learned; gained courage and wisdom; without the morals of the story beating you over the head.
I absolutely loved August and Rosaleen. To be honest, I loved them all. I was even rooting for Zach and Lily to hook up - it made me feel like a teenage reader again, in parts.
I loved the feminist undertones, these women were strong, capable and gutsy. I love the part where August explains why she never married.
I loved how the women's spirituality was dealt with an off-beat 'religion' and even though I'm atheist - I still thought that the way that these women had made sense of the world, was empowering and beautiful.
It was rather pagan; peaceful yet powerful. I found most of the book to be highly original and kept reading not only because of Kidd's great use of words, but because I really have not ever read anything like this before!
I love unique. I loved the storyline, I loved the beautiful prose. I think too, that I was so fascinated by this book because it is so far removed from my life and what I know of the world.
Being Australian, reading about the South from Kidd's perspective anyway, taking on board the fact that she stereotypes was a page-turner for me.
