Bin och människor
Lotte Möller’s book is partly about history, partly about our own time. She writes about bees throughout the months of the year, about beekeepers as well as bee-haters. She uses verbal wit in a pleasant and respectless manner. Bees in literature are also included. A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh, perhaps the most honey-loving of them all, is there, alongside the works of less famous authors, such as Waldemar Bonsel whose book inspired “Maya the Bee”. /…/ Bees and Their Keepers is an entertaining book, easy to love and learn from.
Bin och människor
In her wonderful bee book, Lotte Möller describes how humans and bees have accompanied each other throughout history, tells us about her own bees (which she initially feared), honey frauds, hive models, bee-sex, and occurrences in today’s complex bee world. Beautiful, readable and bee supportive.
Allt om Trädgård
Bin och människor
I begin to yearn for bees of my own while reading this. There is, without doubt, something herein that will affect sentimental souls. /…/ Möller has done her research well and there is a swarm of quotes, character introductions, fact boxes and thematic strokes. She gives us funny time references where we are also made aware of the state of the world outside the hives. The book is actually a history of ideas about bees, filled to the brim with thoughts and notions about man’s best friend – on six legs.
Bin och människor
Educational and entertaining, it adds insight to how humans throughout time have co-existed with the bees and it also puts the present in relief against this history spanning several thousand years. How mankind today has placed itself at a point of refraction: the self-afflicted extinction of both humanity and bees. It sounds terrifying, but instead the book becomes solace against escalating climate angst, the inability to act, and apathy – because from history’s swarm of bee-keepers, all the myths and conceptions mankind has had about the bee-hives, how life has been protected and cared for – emerges an image of a strong counter-movement: an embryo of hope for the future of mankind and the planet, despite everything.
