Of Bees and Mist
Once I reached the core of the story I began to really enjoy Erick Setiawan's debut novel. I liked how Meridia grew over the course of the book, and that although it is a modern fairytale, nothing explicitly supernatural happens, anything unusual, like the bees, can be taken as analogies of events that occur in everyday life. I also liked the ending, as it stayed true to each of the characters individual journeys. Most of all I liked the timeless nature of the story.
