Three Bags Full: A Sheep Detective Story by Leonie Swann
I recommend this book for: high school/grownups
In the small Irish town of Glenkill, a flock of sheep investigates the grisly murder of their shepherd.
I picked this one up because I read a good review . . . and I stuck with it because I wanted to find out what happened, but I wasn't thrilled with this book. Trying to figure out the motivations of the humans as viewed through the eyes of the sheep was difficult, and I found many parts of the book confusing. This could have partly been because of the translation (or partly because this is the first adult book I've read for some time!), but it threw me off. It was an interesting read, but I doubt I'll be picking up the author's next title.
