This amount is subject to change until you make payment. Paull portrays them as buffoonish, their language and demeanor almost Elizabethan in its excesses. Paull, in other words, has no intention of using her bees to comment on or to reflect human society; rather, she wants to portray a world hidden within our own.
To do that, she creates a universe of scent and symbol, in which pheromones have the ability to unveil us and all are in service to the hive mind. And yet Flora is somewhere in the middle, a bee with a burgeoning consciousness, caught between her devotion to the queen, to the collective, and her own capacity for individual thought. When the hive explodes into intrigue and conflict as we have known it will from the beginning of the novel , she alone can move from caste to caste. A move like that is perhaps inevitable in a novel such as this one; Paull is not writing about real bees, after all.
At the same time, it weakens the central conceit and what is best about the book , which is its understanding that the bees have nothing to do with us.
Paull makes that explicit with a brief prologue and epilogue that take place among the humans — for them, the hive, which has been kept for many years by an old beekeeper, is alien and distinct. Yes, the hive is an elaborately structured society, with queens and drones and workers, and yes, in its organization, we are tempted to find a metaphor for ourselves. It is worth reading the first chapters at least, just for this experience. Unfortunately, later on it seems that Weiss just wants to see how much he can gross us out, and since we've already chosen to read a book that features cockroach protagonists, you can expect him to have to go pretty damned far.
Not at all for the faint of heart.
