Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann

This book was chosen for book club. Book Club was last night. I did not go as Mr. wasn't feeling good and I was very worried and didn't want to leave him alone. Which in the end turned out good because I only finished the book this morning.

Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann is a sheep detective book. I really quite enjoyed the first half of the book. If you have see the movie 'Babe' you will know how the sheep talk in the movie. And that is how I imagined the sheep talking in the book.

"Baa-ram-ewe, baa-ram-ewe. To your breed, your fleece, your clan be true. Sheep be true. Baa-ram-ewe"

I have many good laugh out loud  moments. And I have tons of good quotes

"Do you think the Godlin King really did it?" asked Cordelia hesitantly. All the sheep knew she was talking about George's death. Mopple quickly pulled up a tuft of grass.
"Or Satan?" added Lane.
"Nonesense." Rameses snorted nervously. "Satan would never do a thing like that"

"It was the lord who did it!" cried Heather suddenly. "He took George home with him. And then it happened. They quarreled, first with words and then with the sword. Only there wasn't any sword handy so he used the spade."

About half ways through the book, I got bored and stopped enjoying it. I kinda lost interest and struggled reading through the rest. It felt like all the humor suddenly disappeared. The only reason I pushed through to finish it is because it was a book club book. I definitely liked the beginning but around the 120 page mark it stops being a good read.

So now I am going to read something else. Happy Saturday!
