  1. Three Bags Full Leonie Swann s novel of Sheepish DetectionMy thanks to the group Literary Exploration Without the group s selection of Three Bags Fullas our group read for March, 2012, I doubt I would have ever picked up this little gem, even though I had spotted it on the shelves of our local Barnes Noble A detective novel where sheep are the detectives The thought of it makes one feel a bit, well, sheepish.However, Leonie Swann pulls off this woolly caper with style and flair When George, the [...]


  2. I never thought I would find myself commenting in a book review about how realistic the sheep characters seemed to be But in Leonie Swann s delightful murder mystery, I repeatedly found myself thinking Yes I bet that s exactly what a sheep would think While these crime fighting sheep are smart and understand English, they are still just so sheepy that I had no trouble losing myself in their world The author s depiction of flock s attempt to make sense of certain quirks of human behavior from a s [...]


  3. A wonderful, priceless book, full of wit and philosophical musings and profound observations.One morning at the small village of Glennkill, Ireland, a small flock of sheep wake up to find that their shepherd, George Glenn, has been murdered With a spade through his guts Miss Maple, the cleverest sheep in Glennkill, decides they should investigate and find his murderer, because even though George was a bit of a peculiar and irrascible bastard, he was still their shepherd, and who would read Pamel [...]


  4. It s a cute premise a dead shepherd is discovered by his flock of sheep with a spade sticking out of his chest, and the sheep then set out to solve the mystery of the shepherd s murder Fine I have no problem with cute.The problem with this book is that it s just not a very good mystery, despite the billing The clues are often garbled in translation from human to sheep and back again, such that the reader loses a clear sense of what s actually happening The clues we do have don t add up to much a [...]


  5. I have to write a revised review I have to exIplain clearly why I really liked this book, beyond the fact that it still keeps me laughing even though I read it years ago I NEVER read mystery or crime novels And yet I loved it I never read fantasy books, and I loved it Why Well b c the sheep are so wonderful They are determined to find the murderer of their beloved Glen, whom they love b c he was so sweet and caring to them He read them stories every night He taught them a lot Still, the sheep h [...]


  6. A shepherd is murdered and it s up to the flock to find out whodunnit Lead by the intrepid Miss Maple, a delightful cast of sheep characters put their fluffy, fleece heads together to crack the case.As a murder mystery, this book isn t that entertaining, but as a parody of the Miss Marple books, it is fantastic Each sheep in the flock has a distinct character that gives it a unique ability to contribute to the case these traits are listed in the front of the book with the character, just like th [...]


  7. Read this book now Stop whatever you are doing, turn off whatever s cooking on the stove, turn off the music you were just listening to, put down whatever lesser book you thought you d read go to a locally owned used bookstore and buy this book It s one of those books that if it had been written even the tiniest bit differently, the entire wondrous thing would have collapsed But it s brilliant, it s just brilliant It s like Watership Down meets Ruth Rendell, but with a higher percentage of lanol [...]


  8. Sheep, it turns out, have quite a bit in common with humans We are both gossipy, superstitious, and prone to exaggeration Like us, sheep have theories about life after death you become a fluffy, cloud sheep in the sky , and prejudices goats are crazy And occasionally, someone will offer up sane words of advice that both sheep and humans would do well to heed You shouldn t believe what you don t understand You should understand what you believe.The sheep in this book can talk, but only to other s [...]


  9. Rating 3.8 stars, I m rounding upThree Bags Full is, without a doubt, the best sheep detective novel ever written It s a very fun read that can be enjoyed as a simple diversion from life s cares or as a serious, if humorous, look at dealing with guilt, misdeeds, and unrequited love back cover.The story begins when George Glenn s flock discovers his dead body in their meadow one morning An uncommon shepherd, George had been in the habit of reading to his sheep primarily trashy romances Pamela sto [...]


  10. This is something else And something else is good.Do you think sheep are stupid Do you think all they do the whole day long is eating grass Far from it When their sheepheard George is killed, his sheep decide to bring down the murderer together After all George read a murder story for them once, so how hard could it be So the sheep, as crime investigator number one the most intelligent sheep lady of Ireland, called Miss Maple hey, you know this name I do , start to investigate.But this is provin [...]


  11. An interesting concept that had me wanting to read it the moment I was told about it Set in rural Ireland this books is about a flock of smarter than your average sheep who set out to discover the truth behind the murder of their beloved shepherd Led by the smartest sheep, Miss Maple, the rest of the flock, including Othello the black sheep literally and figuratively , Mopple the sheep who never forgets , Sir Ritchfield the aged lead ram and a host of others, search for clues and motives in a vi [...]


  12. Who would not be passionate about a book that has a lead sheep detective named Miss Maple And a lovely, dim, fluffy sheep named Cloud Or a black ram named Othello I could not resist I could not put it down I love this book the solving of the murder of their shepherd, George, is only part of the appeal.The fact that they think humans must only have small souls because of their inferior sense of smell is only the tip of the iceberg as to why these characters are so endearing At one point, Maude th [...]



  13. 3.5 stars There were aspects I loved and aspects I could ve done without here I think she did sheep POV very well At times, it did make me laugh out loud, and I don t commonly laugh out loud easily I have a weird sense of humor This book could be very clever at times I loved the sheep, and I felt that she very cleverly told the story from their point of view I ve never had a conversation with a sheep, lol, but this aspect felt very true to me Maybe I m dense, but parts of this went right over my [...]


  14. Me he carcajeado a cascoporro, me daba tanta pena terminarlo que aplac el momento todo lo que mi curiosidad por conocer el desenlace me permiti desenlace afortunadamente imprevisible Este reba o de ovejas vidas por que les lean, si son novelas rosas, de Pamela, como las llaman ellas aunque no hacen ascos a las novelas policiacas , mejor que mejor, me ha conquistado Mi querencia por lo negro me lleva a encari arme con el carnero Othello una de tantas referencias literarias que abundan en esta nov [...]


  15. I remember a story my Mom told me about waiting in line to turn in her cable box It was a torturous line and an older guy storms in, tosses his box and remote on the counter and amid curses departs shouting Sheep You are allSHEEP Baaaaaa I like that it is from the perspective of sheep I really liked how the sheep perspective developed a true respect for the view from the outside in I even laughed out loud a couple of times over sheep antics since it so closely related to events in the office.It [...]


  16. Da ich mich nicht leicht in ein Schaf hineinversetzen kann, war der Roman f r mich bis fast zum Finale wirklich gew hnungsbed rftig Die Krimihandlung auf Umwegen aus der Sicht der Schafe zu erz hlen, hielt ich urspr nglich f r eine ausgezeichnete und mit jeder zus tzlich gelesenen Seite f r eine schlechtere Idee, weil die Geschichte dadurch wirklich erheblich an Tempo und Spannung verliert Trotzdem Hut ab vor der Autorin, die diese gew hlte Konstellation mit einer Konsequenz und Konsistenz durch [...]


  17. Handlung Die Schafe von George Glenn sind eine bunt zusammengew rfelte Herde ganz normaler und doch au ergew hnlicher Schafe, wie zum Beispiel Miss Maple, das vielleicht kl gste Schaf der Welt, Mopple the Whale, der verfressene Widder mit dem perfekten Ged chtnis, oder Zora, die es liebt, todesmutig auf der Klippe zu sitzen und die Kr uter des Abgrunds zu fressen Auch wenn sie nicht immer alles verstehen, lieben sie es, wenn Sch fer George ihnen vorliest Dumm ist nur, dass er den Krimi weggeworf [...]


  18. It s been quite a few years since I visited rural England But at the time, sheep were everywhere And everywhere they went they grazed Parks Soccer fields Beside houses and restaurants Sometimes they would look up and look at you mainly if you came too close to them but usually they just stood or layed around eating grass And people just ignored them.So, when the shepherd of a small, diverse and odd flock of sheep shows up dead they are able to wander around and investigate his death, worried tha [...]


  19. Le pecore di Glennkill indagano sulla misteriosa morte del loro pastore Geniale, eh Trattenete l entusiasmo perch non basta una premessa simpatica per renderlo un bel libro.Il problema che le pecore sono pecore Ma va , ovvero non sono molto sveglie, hanno una visione limitata della realt e una pessima memoria, possono indagare soltanto origliando conversazioni che casualmente hanno luogo dove sono presenti anche loro e in cui vengono casualmente svelati un po alla volta dettagli utili, e per fin [...]


  20. I wanted to like this than I actually did, but I m awarding a third star because it s such a quirky idea for a book a flock of sheep in a small Irish village try to solve the mystery of who murdered their beloved shepherd.For the most part I enjoyed the sheep The descriptions of their personalities, their various strengths and weaknesses, and their grazing preferences was amusing I got the feeling that some stuff would have been funnier if I had actually ever spent any time observing sheep.The [...]


  21. Perhaps it was inevitable that I d like Leonie Swann s sheep detective novel For one thing, it got a good review from a friend of mine, which is why I asked for it for my birthday in the first place And for another, it s about sheep Granted, they re not Welsh sheep, but hey, that s not their fault It s an interesting way to tell a story a shepherd dies, and his flock set out to discover his murderer It kept me guessing in a fun way because you re limited to what the sheep can see hear and unders [...]


  22. My first impression of this book was it reminded me of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time in the sense of an unlikely detective solving a crime It was probably with this thought that made me not enjoy this book as much as expected While there is some very interesting concepts in this book it has a very philosophical theme throughout of this book, I thought the author padded the book a little too much While the sheep made for very interesting and enjoy about characters, I felt that [...]


  23. This is a wonderful book Crime fighting sheep Set in Ireland What could you ask for The back cover says it has been translated into 32 languages from the original German I can certainly understand why Totally charming and hilarious I stayed up until 5am last night to finish it It s a wonder the hotel guests in neighboring rooms didn t complain about my loud guffaws.If you can make room for only one book about crime fighting sheep the smartest of whom is called Miss Maple this summer, than this [...]


  24. A murder solved or attempted to be solved by sheep Swann does have her sheep think like sheep, or at least they seem to They still sheep during the course of the whole book, that is they still in character And that might be the problem I have with the ending The ending seems almost too pat, though the sheep s reaction to it was well done The book does start very slow, however, that might be due to the translation than anything.


  25. I was not expecting to enjoy this book I am not normally someone who likes the cute animals solve a murder subgenre of the mystery genre, and I really tend to despise the cozy end of the mystery genre in general, so I didn t go into it expecting much I was reading it for a book club I was in, and I didn t pick it up until the day before our meeting to discuss the book For that reason, I didn t have time to get through the entire book before the meeting, but I was surprised to find myself flying [...]


  26. 4.5 Three Bags Full is a delightfully clever murder mystery, filled with endearing characters, sinister activities, and astoundingly thoughtful observations.Leonie Swann s humorous tale of determined, inquisitive sheep is striking in many ways Lovely in its cadence and poetic meanderings, the language alone is enthralling The descriptions of sea and sky, air and earth, are all so vivid There s a wonderful flow to the text, tripping lightly yet assuredly through the sheep s thoughts until you beg [...]


  27. I learned about Three Bags Full from the NYT book review and was immediately interested a dead shepherd and a murder mystery from the point of view of his literary flock of sheep winner The structure of the book itself is slyly quaint It opens with Dramatis Oves sheep only, obvi and neatly and wittly heads each chapter title I gave Three Bags Full four stars is because it s oddly innovative and wackily off kilter The myopic narrative lens is applied deftly and way effectively than you d think S [...]


  28. Three Bags Full, good read Definitely a good summer read Yes, it s an animal mystery novel But don t read it for that It is a delightful poke at people For me the best parts of the book have to do with sheepish metaphysics and aesthetics As you may have picked up in other reviews, the flock has a peculiar understanding about souls and just how big a man s soul might be Not to mention the afterlife Here is a passage I liked Maple realized that she was feeling uncomfortable, from her hooves to the [...]


  29. Audiobook performed by Josephine BaileyIn the village of Glennkill a flock of sheep emerge from the hay barn to begin their daily grazing, only to discover their shepherd dead, a spade pinning his body to the ground Who killed him George was a wonderful shepherd, and frequently read to them They especially liked the love stories and mysteries, and so they feel qualified to begin investigating The sheep are determined to find out who the killer is and bring him or her to justice I was completely [...]
