This is truly one of those unique novels you come across once in a great while. I am so happy to have been able to read this as part of the First Look club. If you are stuck in reality & don't handle imagination well, this won't be the book for you. The author creates a place that remains nameless and a time that is timeless. These particular details are left to what you can imagine them to be. Reality is mixed with magic to create an adult fable full of love, deception, death, new life, ghosts and so much more. I wasn't sure when I first began to read this book if I would like it. About 9 chapters in, it swept me away. There are characters you will love, some you will love to hate, others you will pity & others that will intrigue. The story is based around a young girl raised in a loveless home. She meets and falls in love with a boy who takes her away, but sometimes the hell we don't know is worse then the hell we do know. You follow her through her life and the lives of her family. Definately the type of book you can get lost in. The author has a beautiful way of wording his descriptions. Be sure to investigate the cover! There are many secrets hiding there as well!

Hats off to Erick Setiawan

 

I am glad that Erick Setiawan let Barnes and Noble first look club review his novel. I think he did great job in creating his characters. The plot was original. I enjoyed reading Of Bees and Mist. I think it is fable of family relationships. I think Erick Setiawan has a great future ahead of him. I would recommend this book to my friends and family. It is refreshing to read something that has little fun and magic in it.
