Hi Chris, Each one of your book are very special for me and they provied me to look at the world in a diferent way. Hi Jan — thank you very much for your kind words, which have really picked me up today! All good wishes — Chris. Hallo Chris I read ur book Other Hand.

Ur command of English language is excellent. They say the pen that can make u laugh is the strongest pen of all this days laptop.

Bit confusing though that Little Bee and Sarah are sort of talking in first person. What happened to her? Is she laughing because she is really happy or she thinks she has a future? Could u shed some light on that. I will read all of ur books soon.

Best wishes Saleha Chowdhury. A friend from the us sent me little bee and I loved it! So I got incendiary which I found incredible! I just finished Little Bee. Thank you for such a thought provoking book. I am still digesting how I feel about it. I was able to choose it out of my friends, newly installed, Little Free Library.

I have the oppurtunity to add four suggestions for new books for next year. Perhaps I will get to read Gold and suggest that! It really makes you look at everything differently. I would say, even, with more compassion. Wow- what a talented writer you are! However once I saw beyond that I realized how deep it is which I love and honestly, the denouement of this novel is so intense, so strongly felt.

I should honestly Thank you Chris! They started at about 11am this morning and are now steamrolling away at it. I read it for the first time when I lived in Malta about 4 years ago and have since started a degree in Comparative Literature at Queen Mary University of London- of all of the international texts I have read during this course, none have so deeply affected me and stayed with me- I even wrote about it in a paper dealing with the representation of London in Literature, Film and Art.

The heroine is totally relatable despite experiencing an horrendous crisis which very few people would ordinarily be able to relate to or understand.

I was so inspired while I read that I told my best friend about and she got a copy. We finished the book together and spoke a lot about the beautiful words and raw emotions that were throughout the book. It was great reading it together so now we want to start a book club and I want your other novel to be our first endeavor! So many people keep asking about the book but in order to not spoil the magic, as you insist on the back cover, I tell them that they must read it and discover the story on their own.


Reality bites

Please, please keep writing and I very much hope that Little Bee will be made into a movie soon! Thank you for bringing such beautiful art into my summer vacation. Hi Madison, thank you for reading the book and for your very kind message, which means a lot to me.

All the best for your book club. There are so many good books coming out at the moment, I guess you will be spoiled for choice. So much good new stuff to read…. Hi Pauline — thank you for reading the book. Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for passing it on! I just finished Incendiary. Thank you for writing this book.

No question, Little Bee is next on my reading list. There are no words to describe this book. It completely changed my life. Somehow you manage to capture everything with a perspective I otherwise would never have seen.

You have become my ijcendiary writer and I will be the first to buy your next book. Lots of love and luck, keep the amazing work going Chris!! I had read The Other Hand which is why I wanted to see you for myself. During the discussion incenndiary spoke about Incendiary and I bought it after your talk.

Some years on and I have recommeded Incendiary to all my book reader friends and family. Now Dubai Eye radio has asked me to go on their show as a Book Champion to talk about a book that changed my life.

I cleavee chosen to talk about Incendiary. I am re-reading the book again and this time taking notes and doing some research so I can represent your wonderful novel as it should be represented. Hi Sarah, great to hear from you! Thank you very much for your enthusiasm for the book — it means a lot to me that it means something to you. And thank you for doing the Dubai Eye show. Please say hello from me to the wonderful books community in Dubai.

I loved Incendiary so wise and funny and full of love. I raved about it on FB and several of my friends are going to download it onto their Kindle I am sure that they will love it chrid. It was wonderful to read such an authentic voice from working class London…where I grew up and worked among some of the most deprived people observing the lack of everything but love, the gentrification on the doorsteps of the inendiary, the willingness of the powers that be to sacrifice some sections of society to save others.


I hope someone sent a copy to Osama……. Hi Chris Have just read Little Bee. I studied Fine Art and painted for 15 years and now have a 15 yr old daughter and 5 yr old son. I read quite a lot. I loved your book. I am almost obsessed with essence and the search for it.

There is a lot of it in your writing. I tell my daughter that with painting it is important to keep the feeling alive and in all the marks that make up the painting or drawing that is being created. If all the marks have feeling and life then the work will have life. I think the same goes for words and writing. The four year old in your book tore my heart clesve. In fact all the characters were brilliantly and economically portrayed.

I will definitely be reading Incendiary. Thanks for the heart and true intelligence. What happens to the end of the bee. Good day just read the other hand super but I was sad when alas no happy ending How can our nation be so unfeeling?? A friend brought me Incendiary on Tuesday morning.

I finished it this morning. I wish I could incendkary up with the word. It just leaves you wanting more on every page. The humor is amazing.

Review: Incendiary by Chris Cleave | Books | The Guardian

So, I feel ashamed of myself. I was impressed with Little Bee. But I liked Incendiary even better. It is brilliant writing and spoke to me and moved me on so many levels.

Anyone with a loving heart who has struggled with PTSD, just as a result of loss of a loved one, or even just a small trauma, should relate. There but by the grace of God go all of us. Dear Chris, thank you for this fascinating story! For me it was first and foremost about how the personal and the societal destruction go hand in hand… without making things look nicer than they really are.

But, since I hate going into the bookstore and coming out empty-handed, I bought Little Bee. I just finished it and I want to start from the beginning — it was that good! My plan is to purchase Incendiary and download it onto my IPad tonight.

The subject matter was deep in more ways than I thought it would be. The characters were real — nothing was sugar-coated. Pure, raw emotions came flying off the page and had me emersed as if I were there, but not seen.

To me a requirement is something that you are basically forced to do and reading lillte bee was not. I absolutely feel in love with this book.

It is so rich and full of details and creativity and by the way this book will give you goose bumps.
