J. F. Riordan's The Audacity of Goats offers, from start to finish, a funny, wise, and completely engaging sojourn on a remote Great Lakes island where no one is close to perfect but where community matters¬¬ and open-minded decency wrests just endings out of a welter of mystery, misunderstanding, and just plain malice. Riordan has been likened, with some justice, to Jane Austen, but her ability to keep dozens of characters afloat at the same time--developing, motivating, and deepening them in always interconnected ways--is more Dickensian. The humor, too, is consistently rich--whether or not the characters mean to be funny. You'll put this book down feeling you have spent the winter in a strange but manifoldly beautiful spot almost at the ends of the earth¬—and feeling, as well, that your room and board have been covered by a shrewd and talented storyteller.

I did not know this was t

I did not know this was the second in a series when I picked it up to read. That didn't take away from my enjoyment of the book. I will admit it was the title that caught my eye - I do love goats. And they are audacious creatures. It was a book full of quirky characters and a fun and mysterious plot. It's not a long book but a lot gets covered and you really feel like you are part of this little community. A great book for a rainy afternoon

This is the delightful se

This is the delightful sequel to "North of the Tension Line," and is even better than the first book in the series! The characters are delightful, there is a delicious mystery, and an eerily familiar political battle. You will love this book! (I actually read it in one sitting. Couldn't put it down.) Highly recommended.

This was another great re

This was another great read with wonderful and different characters along with "Robert, the goat". Fiona had a rather hectic road ahead of her but she was able to survive all the events. Stella was an obstacle in her life and a thorn in her side! Looking forward to another read by Riodan! I received this free from Librarything and Beaufort books-Thanks

Oh my gosh I loved this b

Oh my gosh I loved this book! I must say I loved the first book as well, and I think I may have liked this one even more. What a great kooky story about a bunch of interestingly flawed people. And goats! I enjoyed the new characters and also getting back on track with the old ones. I think this needs to be a series, I know I'd read them all and share them with everyone I know.
