Reading the Stella Prize shortlist – The Eye of the Sheep by Sofie Laguna


I reviewed Sofie Laguna’s The Eye of the Sheep last year. Actually, it wasn’t a review… just a little lament. And my position remains unchanged. This is a brilliant and heartbreaking story about a family and a boy named Jim Flick.

4/5 Laguna has created an unforgettable character in Jim. Prepare to cry.

Will it win the Stella Prize? Front-runner.
