I started listening to this book because I needed something light to listen to. It is utterly brilliant as my heading says. I never would, nor did I, have guessed the ending in a zillion years. I really loved this book from the very first page until the last page.

I loved Joanna's goats and sheep book and hoped that this one would also have her fantastic eye for detail and the poetry of everyday language. To a certain extent it does, and some of the passages are a joy to listen to, but unfortunately the pacing was very slow and meandering. To be honest I found myself drifting away from the story on more than one occasion and thus some elements of the plot confused me. I also found some of the surprise twists were very obvious. Paula Wilcox is a wonderful narrator, and she can't be faulted here, but overall The Trouble with Goats and Sheep, with its unashamed and joyous nostalgia, was a far more enjoyable experience.

Story too long and confusing at times. Very depressing and would not recommend it to anyone elderly or depressed. Paula Wilcox however gets my thumbs up as an exceptional reader.

A masterfully written novel with unexpected twists and turns told in a truly creative way. It also commands reflection on both the process of aging and the human condition in general.
Brilliantly narrated, the characters were lifted off the page.
