"An utter delight. Perceptive, funny, dark, moving. And so beautifully written. I loved it." (Sarah Winman)
"A haunting, perceptive novel about the price of belonging. It's a treasure chest of a novel and I loved it very much." (Julie Cohen)
"A captivating new voice in British fiction. Not since Nathan Filer's The Shock of the Fall has a debut novel held the promise of such an exciting career ahead. One of the standout novels of the year." (Hannah Beckerman)
"Cannon's interrogation of hypocrisy and prejudice is insightful and compassionate.... I didn't want the book to end." (Carys Bray)
"An excellent debut. This cautionary tale of a suburban power struggle is charming and truthful, at once ambitious and intimate, with playful prose that reveals an intriguing mind at work." (James Hannah)
Ce que les auditeurs disent de The Trouble with Goats and Sheep
I heart much good about the book and it is very sweet. The ambiance is touching, the story unfolds well and I especially enjoyed the reading merformance. It did take me a very long time to get into the story through and it does seem lenghty at times, to me anyways.
