Little Bee

I'm almost finished my book club book for February. It's a novel called "Little Bee" by Chris Cleave. It's about a refugee from Nigeria who ends up in London. She works really hard to learn "The Queen's English". I hope some of you will give it a try! It's an interesting story with great writing.

Ok, Thanks for accepting this idea. We can start with a short story I Put here. I would be glad if dear members read it carefully and discuss over it with any idea or conclusion they may get from the text. As a teacher I've found it very useful in improving reading and writing.

sara, very good idea..lets see how it can be taken forward..you may suggest some link which is worth reading and lets appeal group to enter into discussion after giving opportunity to read and share. Thank you for this.

Hi Mr. Sunil. Thanks for devising such useful group. I have an idea: i think it would be better that all members focus on a certain reading material to discuss about. i suggest members select an on-line story for example and put its link in this group so that all members can get it. for one week or more members read that and then discuss over it. as the material is the same for all i think the result of discussion may be much better.

yes, the things have not been easy there for the people. HOPE is the only word for them. Things are becoming some what bearable for the people now with process of democracy on, things would improve. We just cannot imagine the life there during last many years. there is one more book titled `Bread Winner` which also talks about a family that faced tough life during the taliban rule in afghan.I will write some thing on it next time perhaps.
