Title: The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: elijahfan12 on August 08, 2003, 05:03:50 pm

Robert Cormier wrote a book called "The Bumble Bee Files Anyway" ...is it like the movie that lij was in? has anyone read this book?

Yeah, I think the movie was based on the book. I've never read it, though, but I'm guessing it probably would be.

I've never read the book, but my guess is you're right.. I mean, usually when a book and a movie have the same title (especially something such as 'The Bumblebee Flies Anyway'.. haha), they're related somehow to some extent..

Like I said, I haven't read the book, but I saw the movie. I rather liked it. It had a kind of weird plot.. a sad one! But I liked it all the same. I shall have to look out for the book now!

Isn't it called 'The Bumblebee flies away'?
But i am pretty sure that the movie was based on a book.

That's what I originally thought. After reading the title how many times and even renting the movie (last year)... and I still didn't catch on. Well, not until my friend showed me that I was wrong and it was actually "anyway". ::) Anyway...

I liked The Bumblebee Flies Anyway, but I've never read the book. Personally I think Robert Cormier's novels are kind of strange.

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: elijahfan12 on August 19, 2003, 01:44:32 am

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: elijahfan12 on August 19, 2003, 03:33:10 pm

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: ElijahsSparkplug on August 19, 2003, 05:46:58 pm

Yeah, it was good, but i thought it was rather odd. I got lost in a few parts.

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: ElijahsSparkplug on August 20, 2003, 05:40:23 pm

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: ElijahsSparkplug on August 21, 2003, 01:55:16 pm

I know, I cried so hard. Especially in the part where she's telling Barney she has to go, and he says, "If there ever comes a time, when I can't remeber all this...tell me our story." :'(

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay

Post by: ElijahsSparkplug on August 22, 2003, 02:17:23 pm

Oh my gosh, lol, it's so sad. I hate the part when he finds out that he has that "thing." And with his parents, I started crying when they went to visit his mom, and I pretty much cried through the rest of it.

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: ElijahsSparkplug on September 02, 2003, 03:02:11 am

I want to say because they all have mental disorders, but I don't remember too well to be honest.

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: elijahfan12 on September 02, 2003, 10:43:13 am

yeh but all those ppl -he met on the way riding his bike..nd then theyre all at th hospital ???

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: ElijahsSparkplug on September 02, 2003, 01:58:53 pm

Yeah, I can't remember what the literature term for that kind of thing is called, but what I got from the book was that Adam was in therapy to remember his past, and that's where all the memories of his dad leaving and stuff came from. Then while he was on his "journey" it was actually contained in the mental asylum place. All the people he met were actually people that lived in the same confinement as he did. Don't think any of that made since, but oh well.

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: elijahfan12 on September 02, 2003, 03:25:45 pm

o0o0o ..wow now i understand it lol

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: ElijahsSparkplug on September 02, 2003, 05:56:28 pm

Liar, lol. I just read it again and it doesn't make much sense to me. I remember his mom died, and that people were looking for his dad, but why did they want his dad again? Do you remember?

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: elijahfan12 on September 02, 2003, 09:29:39 pm

Never even heard of it. :-\ Is it a Cormier too?

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: ejwood_lover on September 03, 2003, 10:00:49 pm

Robert Cormier is one of my favorite authors...but The Bublebee Flies Anyway is not my favorite book that he has written...he has a lot more novels that are in my opinion better...if you liked The Bumblebee Flies Anyway, I am The Cheese, The Chocolate War, or Beyond The Chocolate War then you woud probably like his book Tenderness ...it is really good in my opinion...some other good books by Robert Cormier are...
After the First Death
8 Plus 1
Heroes
Fade
Now and At the Hour
Darcy
I Have Words To Spend


He has even more then this but these are his best in my opinion...I own all of his books...I've read them too...

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
Post by: ElijahsSparkplug on September 04, 2003, 02:19:51 pm

I think he's a good author, he's topics are just rather strange.

Title: Re:The BumbleBee Flies AnyWay
