    I absolutely loved this book. I've read all Maggie O'Farrell's previous books and enjoyed them. I was nervous that the narrator might spoil it for me, but Dearbhla Molloy did such a good job, that I didn't want the book to finish.

    The stunning new novel from Costa-Novel-Award-winning novelist Maggie O'Farrell: a portrait of an Irish family in crisis in the legendary heatwave of 1976.

  • "Superb and surreal"

    Overall

    I've loved all the Haruki Murakami books that I've listened to so far. Rupert Degas does a great job narrating, using only the accents and voices needed. A wild sheep chase and the follow-up Dance, Dance, Dance tell the story of a very likeable journalist and the strange adventures he has. It is a strange book (like all Murakami books) but very enjoyable and captivating.



    I would recommend listening to this book and the follow-up in the right order, though this is not essential as each stands up on its own.

    A Wild Sheep Chase is one of Murakami's most fantastical novels. An advertising executive, infatuated with a girl who possesses the most perfect ears (an erotic charge for him) uses a picture of a sheep with a star on its back. This catapults him into a weird adventure to find the mythical sheep up in the wilds of Hokkaido, Japan's northern island. There are strange encounters, a hotel with an extra disappearing floor, and other oddities.

Hoping to shore up her receding memory, he prompts her with songs, photographs, and questions from their shared past, taking her back to the 1940s, when she was a young woman and he a child in a small Cumbrian town. But as he rekindles her memories, it is her own mother she longs for - and John finds himself delving further back, into the secrets and silences of Mary's fractured childhood, and the unsung sorrows of her thwarted yet spirited mother, Grace.
