4.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable and realistic, 22 July 2003
By A Customer
The Bumblebee Flies Anyway by Robert Cormier is a children’s novel involving mature themes of death, freedom and control. The story centres around Barney Snow and his experiences and the people he meets at the “Complex”. He has been sent to a specific “laboratory” clinic for tests because he and most of the others there are dying. He realises they are all trapped by their illnesses and crave freedom or release even only for a minute. The Bumblebee is the key.
This is an unforgettable novel with realistic characters and consistently strong themes throughout. Highly recommended, especially to fans of Cormier’s other works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great but depressing book, 7 Nov. 2007
By 
J. C. Rowell "johnrowell" (Rome, Italy) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Robert Cromier really wrote a masterpiece! It is really a fantastic book. But the problem with it is that it is so depressing!
Barney Snow lives in a hospital for people that have terminal desieses. He seems to be the only one who isn't dying. But when he discovers a terrible secret, his whole life comes crashing down. And his last ambition is to ride the Bumblebee...
