        • The book was really good. I read this before I knew there was going to be a movie. I’m always afraid the movie won’t live up to the written word.

        • I was already reading this before I heard there was going to be a movie.  I hurried up and finished reading it because I wanted to see the movie.  I have a feeling the book will turn out to be better.  Once I found out who was starring in it, I did find it hard to read without imagining them in the roles.  I don’t know if I liked that!  Queen Latifah as August was GENIUS!!!  I could absolutely see and believe her in the role!

        • I have heard the movie was just as good as the book. I can’t wait to see the movie!  

          This is what I wrote about the book on [Link Removed]   I finished "The Secret Life of Bees" by Sue Monk Kid. It was great! I enjoyed the characters..the themes...the story. It was just a wonderful story unfolding throughout the book.  

          A friend of mine was talking about love. And she has always felt the word love isn’t adequate. We say we love french fries. And we say we love our family. Obviously those are different kinds of loves. We would hope that the love we feel for french fries isn’t the same as we feel for our families.  

          Quote from the book:
          “And I loved the color blue- the real bright blue like the hat May had on at the Daughters of Mary meeting. And since coming here, I’ve learned to love bees and honey.” And I wanted to add, And you, I love you, but I felt too awkward. ‘Did you know there are thirty-two names for love in one of the Eskimo languages?’ August said.”

        • I had never heard of this book before, but it sounds interesting.  I’ll check it out of my library tomorrow and start catching up.
