Winner of the Miles Franklin Literary Award 2015.Ned was beside me, his messages running easily through him, with space between each one, coming through him like water. He was the go-between, going between the animal kingdom and this one. I watched the waves as they rolled and crashed towards us, one after another, never stopping, always changing. I knew what was making them come, I had been there and I would always know.Meet Jimmy Flick. He's not like other kids - he's both too fast and too slow. He sees too much, and too little. Jimmy's mother Paula is the only one who can manage him. She teaches him how to count sheep so that he can fall asleep. She holds him tight enough to stop his cells spinning. It is only Paula who can keep Jimmy out of his father's way. But when Jimmy's world falls apart, he has to navigate the unfathomable world on his own, and make things right.Sofie Laguna's first novel One Foot Wrong received rave reviews, sold all over the world and was longlisted for the Miles Franklin Literary Award and shortlisted for the Prime Minister's Literary Award. In The Eye of the Sheep, her great originality and talent will again amaze and move readers. In the tradition of Room and The Lovely Bones, here is a surprising and brilliant novel from one of our finest writers.

You will not regret this purchase. The author Sophie Laguna has written this book in such a delightful way. Making the smaller details significant whilst only hinting at the significant. Her subtly of phrase is sublime. I know I will need to re-read to truly appreciate the depth of her skill. In this story, she has shared her view of challenging lives, giving new insights into the human condition and all of its flaws. I had my heart in my mouth for most of the book and felt it shatter more than once. Although the story is disturbing, it was wonderfully told and the slivers of light shining through made it less burdensome.
