Yet beneath the blatant attention-grabbing, the book has moments in which one’s attention is quite deservedly grabbed. I found her to be a kind woman. I was not one for reading books at all, but all that is going to change after reading incediary, i thought it was an amazing read and i really could not put it down, im a biography kind of girl and only read them when im on hols but iv been having a bit of a stressfull time recently and i was passing a book store and i just picked up your book, i read it within about three days which is mega fast for me.

I read Little Bee this summer and thought it was amazing. Sep 19, M rated it did not like it Shelves: Incendiaryy look forward to your next publication. There is an amazing scene near the end when, faced with the threat of another imminent attack, ‘the panic’ takes hold. I love to read good books, with words and ideas that grab my heart and mind.

What happened to her? I was fortunate dleave Little Bee let me see what others go through.

Review: Incendiary by Chris Cleave | Books | The Guardian

The film, loosely based in the book, was released on October 24th on Us and them are not the same species. Little Bee is one of my favourite novels, I shared it with all my friends. Even Hitler couldn’t finish us though he set the whole of the East End on fire The title is right: Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.


The scenario is one of lock-down, in which the government loses all trust in the public and people have no faith in one another. Chris Cleave is a true talent in his ability to have you crying for the most unlikeable character on the surface of it, he has put himself in the shoes of an adultress, working class mother nicendiary left her incsndiary alone to go to chrls pub and sleep with another man, the same one she is sleeping with when her husband and son are blown to bits in a terrorist attck, and still manages to make you cry, feel and adore the woman with every chapter.

The woma This book is amazing. The novel received generally positive reviews. It’s a deep, brutal, personal look at human nature and tragedy. Having just finished Little Bee two days ago I knew I had to read this novel.

I will be reading The Other Hand next! I got her to write her story as a plea against violence, directly to Osama bin Laden, incendiagy for a mother who had lost her son Invendiary did not see what could be more natural. I had never before considered terrorism or how close to home it can hit. The style is epistolary and conversational: He even notes it, with a nod and a wink, when she is looking at a job possibility with the police.

Its kinda natural in a sense however the higher ground is to be objective and see things through the eyes of the creator. Just now I finished watching the movie and am so disappointed in the shadow of your story that appeared on the screen. I love becoming emotionally attached to the characters in books so thank you for them. Cleaves, I was really let down.


Hi Heather, thank you for watching the movie. I read Little Bee for my book club. You have become my favourite writer and I will be the first to buy your next book.

To view all Muslims with suspicion because of the activities of a few Muslims is frankly absurd, and the Western media without question is collectively guilty of operating a double standard. But what I found most engaging was how the character navigates her way through the remade London which emerges from the ashes of the attack.

My heart goes out to all those who have suffered and I applaude their courage for continuing to live in the face of such pain. I’ll live in palaces pinning medals on to lawyers and architects while these people watch their tired faces get older each morning in dirty bathroom mirrors.

Cant wait to read more of your work. Thank you Mandy — very kind of you to say so.

The story behind INCENDIARY

Bit confusing though that Little Bee and Sarah are sort of talking in first person. I would be very interested to hear your thoughts. The dual narration was brilliantly composed, the characters were believable, especially Little Bee.
