    1. A compelling book by a young man who after a very serious accident reclaims his life through a quest for honey that takes him to fascinating places to meet extremely interesting people that he describes with compelling sensitivity. The fascinating history of honey is imparted as well as an insightful travel journal of Italy, Lebanon, Syria, Nepal,Sri Lanka and the human spirit. I hope he continues to travel and write many more books.


    2. I bounced back and forth between liking and disliking this book. There were a lot of great aspects in it, and bees are always fascinating (and honey delicious) so I really liked when the book centered around those topics. But the travel part and the author's personal narrative were not as compelling to me.After being hit by a truck, Piers Moore Ede decides while recuperating that he would like to write a book about bees and honey, most specifically the honey trail through the world. It will be a [...]


    3. I've popped this book to rejected. Sadly I just couldn't finish it. Would actually like to remove it from my active lists but wanted to "keep it" so I wasn't tempted again if that makes sense?


    4. In his early 20s, in love with life and his new girlfriend, Ede is cycling to work when he is hit by a truck. After nearly dying and enduring many rounds of surgery to reconstruct his shattered face and body, Ede gradually returns to physical health but a crushing depression saps him of the will to live. He decides a re-connection to nature and hard physical work might help and volunteers to be a farm worker in Italy. Arriving at a small farm in Tuscany, he falls in love with bees and begins to [...]


    5. Look if you told me I should read a book on bee keeping I would find 10 other books to read instead, but the subtitle of this book reads Travels in search of Sweetness. So off course when I see the word Travel I grab it and the cover picture certainly helped to convince me. I am rivited. Again a book I have to sit up and read because I am constantly making notes in my notebook. Beautifully written by a person who is senstive to the sensual surroundings in which he moves. I am nearly convinced to [...]


    6. If I had read this book first I would never have read the other one of his which I really enjoyed. Maybe because the writer was so young when he wrote this but I just found it self indulgent and even slightly exploitative of the countries he was in. Once again I was made very aware that the world that we live in is still very much a mans world - a woman would not have the opportunity or freedom to make the trip the author did. Finally apart from giving a broad introduction to the life of bees it [...]


    7. While occasionally I did feel a need for more information this is a gentle story of a love affair with honey and the search for the ultimate honey. While searching Ede also finds a path to recovery from a serious hit and run accident that takes his carefree sense of youth.It's interesting and I would like to try the different honey that he tries. Even if only once. Much of the story is quite gentle and there's a sense of wonder that never leaves.


    8. Absolutely fantastic read. It's descriptions of nature, travel, and foods are fulfilling on a spiritual level. I will definitely keep this on my bookshelf.My only small criticism is that this almost reads like a fantasy. It's very clear that his journey was only achievable because he's a man. There's no way this could have happened if he were a woman. The sexism is ever-present, yet nonchalantly understated in almost every culture he visits. That being said, I still found it very enjoyable.


    9. I found this book fascinating for its author's persistent search for the honey collectors' customs of the past. He got himself into the most out of the way spots where life hadn't changed for millenia.



    10. A pleasant read. it is a personal travel and healing diary converted to a story. The documentary parts read as school essays at times.
