Book review:

Mad Honey by Jodi Picoult this book about bees it's fascinating. Asher is final year of school, he's, they're about to start you know, they're looking for colleges to start in the next year. 

He's a supportive son, he's a good student and he's a star hockey player, then he meets Lily and he falls in love. 

Lily has just moved to the town, she's a newcomer to the town, her mum again, she's a, lives with her single mom and Asher finds her dead, he's, he's discovered with her dying, 

okay so this is where the book starts, you know, he's discovered cradling her as she's dying so he's accused of murder and you don't know whether he did or he didn't. 

You've got Olivia not knowing whether he did or didn't. She trusts her son but then she wonders could he possibly be like his father? You've got also these sorts of things and then you're leading into the, the courtroom drama 

I love courtroom dramas and that's the first half of the book and you are so hooked and hooked and hooked and then there comes a twist halfway through the book that comes to twist. 

I'm not telling you what the twist because the twist is so fundamental to the book that if I told you about it, it would absolutely ruin it so if you want to know what the twist is go and buy it, but the twist it shouldn't have spoiled it for me but it did because the second half of the book for me 

I felt it was preaching I felt that there was so many lectures in the second half of the book running alongside the court drama that it, that it stopped it being a five star. If it hadn't have been for the lectures, 

if we'd have had the twist and just carried on, it would have been a five star but for me it was a lecture, lecture, preach, preach and although I was invested in the characters, although I kept reading because I wanted to know the result of this court case and what went on there was that, it was irritating to be preached at every now and again but that was me. 

You might not find it like that. The book is told in two voices, you've got Olivia's voice and you've got Lily's voice and they're told alternate chapters and what I particularly liked is that Lily's voice, she tells her story backwards and I thought that was a fascinating way of doing it, so each time we hear Lily's voice it's going backwards and you are learning more about Lily which I absolutely loved, I loved that bit, 

what I did forget, that I forgot to mention right at the beginning is that this book it's written by Jodi Picoult and Jodi Picoult and Jennifer Finney Boylan, Jennifer Finney Boylan 

so it's a collaboration and one woman wrote Olivia and one wrote Lily but there were some intermixing but you read, read the afterword of this book. There's so much in here that I loved. I loved the character of Olivia, I loved the relationship with her brother, the love affair between Lily and Asher I, 

I thought was really touching, I like the structure, the structure of Lily telling her story backwards and I love the bees - right at the end you've got all the recipes that Olivia uses but I didn't like the lectures and the preaching in the second half. 

So I hope I've wheted your appetite. For me there was just a little bit too much preaching if they just just stuck to the story I I'd have been quite happy but that is Mad Honey by Jodi Picoult and Jennifer Finney Boylan.
