Book 44 of 52 -- Leonie Swann's Three Bags Full
What a great mystery!
Author Leonie Swann brings us into the collective minds and hearts of a herd of sheep, without ever becoming precious or twee.
Set in Ireland, the mystery itself is quite good (unlike some animal-based mysteries.)
Swann's writing is witty without being pretentious.
The sheep are definitely clever and heroic, while staying true to their ovine species, and even the humans are well-rounded and carefully done.
A real winner (and you'll never look at a sheep in quite the same way again!)
