Excellent writing. But I didn't like the result. An intimate look at a family of four oversensitive people. I was glad that the spelling protagonist didn't suffer conventional child abuse. But I felt queasy through much of the book, these individuals all needed an outlet or grounding. They were all aflame (with shame, ambition, god, ocd, etc.) and off kilter. I don't want to live like that. ( )

Wow - this was such a good book! As a competitor in a couple of spelling bees, I could relate to some of this. The story was very interesting. ( )

This book was not what I expected it to be. I thought it was going to be a story of a girl who overcomes adversity to make it to the national spelling bee. That did happen, but that story line played itself out within the first hundred pages. Then it transitioned into a story of a family in which each person was living his or her own life apart from everyone else, with each on their own quest for meaning, perfection, and understanding of the divine. The content got heavier and heavier, and less and less tied to reality. I actually like books about religion and mysticism, and had I been looking for that at this time, I probably would have liked this book much better. As it was, I just ended up frustrated at reading yet another story about unfulfilled, unhappy people. ( )

A portrait of one dysfunctional family. The author seemed to want to incorporate many different types of dysfunction into one story. From my perspective, I'm not sure it succeeds in the telling of all of them. The ending is abrupt but I was ready for the the novel to end. ( )

Oh man! This book was absolutely fantastic!!!! There were parts of it where I thought Myla Goldberg was writing about my life. And you never could guess the book. Everything that happens in the book, stuff happens and you're like What? What the heck?!

Everything about this book was excellently executed. The characters were so individualized, so real. How can anyone not love Eliza? or Aaron?

I found myself cheering the kids on, knowing that the kids had found some stability in their lives. Spiritualism, spelling bees. And they both take a stand against a weird form of bullying. Their dad wasn't so much a bully as much as what he said goes even if it meant some weird form of abuse, mental?, of the kids.

The book is so strong. It's right up there with 13th Tale, Calamity Physics, thick story, thick characters. I thought about the characters when I wasn't reading the book. And when I read it I could barely tear myself away from it. ( )

Myla Goldberg's first novel, ''Bee Season,'' is a dispassionate, fervidly intelligent book -- she explores class, linguistics and religious extremism with the confidence of a born essayist -- that comes by its emotion honestly.
