The Beekeeper of Aleppo

by

Christy Lefteri

The Beekeeper of Aleppo tells the story of Nuri and his family as they are forced to flee their home in Syria’s war torn city of Aleppo.  The Beekeeper of Aleppo is narrated by Art Malik whose voices suit the story, however but not my ear.

Soon after commencing The Beekeeper of Aleppo I was tempted to not complete listening to audio version.  Even now I am wondering…why?  True. Nuri was a beekeeper.  However, he could have been a butcher, baker or candlestick maker for all the influence his trade had on the story.  At least that is my opinion.  The story was of the struggles and hardship endured as a family escaped from Syria and the city of Aleppo.

As stated on more than one occasion, I read for enjoyment.  I do not like biographical stories.  In this instance it maybe because I have had contact with refugees from his part of the world and heard their stories and more recently know of a family who made it to Australia after watching other, close and not so close, family members executed prior to fleeing the home country.
