When my friend told me to read a book about Elon Musk a few weeks ago, I didn't want to do it. It's about a biography about some guy whos not even relevant to me. But when I picked it up, I couldn't put it down.
When I read about fifty pages, I knew that this book was going to be a long read. I sat on my bed, and those first pages were the most boring pages I ever read. I felt like I couldn't finish it. Being the person I am, I can't half read a book and put it down; I have to finish this boring book.
Since I only have so much time to spend on a tiresome book, I just read it at night and on my bed. One night, I fell asleep at eight o clock reading this, it was that boring and tiresome.
The next day, I got on my bed, read, and almost fell asleep. Three hours later, I was nearly 100 pages in -- and WOW, I couldn't read faster if I wanted to. Vance's writing style was clunky, disorganized, confused, chaotic, turbulent, and Jumbled. There were too many clunky sentences, lots of jarring phrases.
In the end, this book is a must-read, if you're an idiot. Tedious, tiresome, terrible, clunky, chaotic, turbulent, disorganized, what else can I say.
From the city of Albuquerque, Carol is full of friends and her random 11-year-old life. She moves to her grandfather's New Mexico sheep ranch. She hates it. His grandpa has dementia and she, her little brother, and her parents, have to spend the whole summer trying to get him into better shape and if necessary, move him out. Her grandpa later tells her an old story, about a tree that gave all the villagers the power not to die. Carol then has time to rethink her assets and sees new and more exciting ways to spend time, through changes.
This book is named "Hour of the Bees" because when it rained after the drought, the tree and the rain stopped growing and falling after only one hour. This book teaches that you have have to not be afraid of dying, and live to your fullest.
