Thank-you for the ARC NetGalley

I thought it was an interesting “novel”. It is full of short stories but they are interconnected. You can read each one as a standalone story but they are part of a larger story. I read an interview where the author says, “This book is a walk through a forest: there are many paths to explore and many places to linger." How lovely and accurate is that?!

Charles Vess’s black and white illustrations are throughout the book. His artwork is the perfect addition to this adult fairy tale book.

You don’t have read any of her other books to enjoy this one though it is set in the same multiverse as some of her other books.

I plan to buy a hard-copy because reading the ARC on my cellphone diminished some of my joy and I must have a copy on my nightstand with a proper bookmark so I can spend more time “exploring and lingering” in this book.

Joanne Harris (author of Chocolat), offers a creation myth frame around a compilation of updated morality tales and fables in her upcoming release, Honeycomb. The beautiful and emotional illustrations are by renowned artist Charles Vess. Split into two “Books,” the collection presents a world of insect-like fairies that is parallel, but invisible, to the human one. Book One, “Long Ago,” describes the formation of the insect universe and its various tribes. Most of the action in the chapters centers around the development arc of the main hero, The Lacewing King. In a nod to Ulysses, the Lacewing King embarks on a long journey of self-discovery and eventual redemption and reconciliation. His path intersects with a cast of characters that mirror the villains and heroes of traditional lore (but in insect form). There are rivalries and games of dominance, feats of endurance and bravery, and challenges to the King’s fatal flaw of hubris. Death and Dishonesty are incorporated as the main adversaries in the King’s quest, but it is his own inability for compassion that continually defeats him. The second book (“Far Away”) continues the Lacewing King’s journey after a particularly grueling battle. Having ceded his strength and power, he needs redemption and forgiveness by others to complete his journey home. Themes include balancing power with empathy, what it means to be able to “see” truth, the genuine versus the fabricated/manipulated, self-sacrifice and the value of artistic creation. The ability of stories to communicate across worlds is embodied by the bees, who act as the collective conscience and chorus buzzing throughout the book. With Honeycomb, Joanne Harris alludes to numerous motifs that have been integral to all stories for centuries: ideas culled from international sources of mythology, fables, folklore and parables. While Harris’ main storyline provides cohesion, it is the smaller asides and micro tales interspersed throughout that provide the most delight. Honeycomb will appeal to folklorists and fantasy fiction lovers, and would be a good choice for anyone looking for a new interpretation of the universal tales that continue to course through our shared language today.

Thanks to the author, Saga Press (Simon & Schuster) and Edelweiss for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an impartial review. ( )

Review of eBook

A collection of short fable-like stories in two books ["Long Ago" and "Far Away"], beginning with the dreamflower and loosely held together by the continuing story of the Lacewing King and the Silken Folk who serve as the guardians of the honeycomb and were the first to bring the nectar of Dream into the Worlds. But, though they are everywhere, the Silken Folk, sometimes called the Faërie, are invisible to the Sightless Folk.

Several characters appear regularly throughout the telling of the tales: The Honeycomb Queen, the Clockwork Princess, the Spider Queen, the Barefoot Princess, the Girl with the Clockwork Tiger, the Harlequin . . . all play a role in the stories that, as they are told, come full circle and remind the reader that there is a power in stories, especially those that the bees used to tell, the tales of long ago and far away.

Ethereal and transcendent, the stories [some dark, some hope-filled, all imaginative], are exquisitely illustrated and are sure to remain with readers long after the final page has been turned.

Highly recommended.

I received a free copy of this eBook from Gallery Books Gallery/Saga Press and NetGalley
