    1. 'Midnight's Tale' moved into my private, highly select hall of fame for Best Last Sentence.Yes, an intriguing First Sentence is important, but I'm a stickler for a Great Ending, and those are few and hard to come by.Other reviewers have lauded the originality, the humor, the quality and the style that infuses this short tale about a goat called Midnight. It is, delightfully, all that, all the way.But more importantly, at the very end, everything I'd learned of Midnight, through Midnight and in t [...]

    2. This book got great reviews, so I decided to try it. The main character and narrator is a goat, weird. I'll let you know how it is when I'm done.

    3. George Berger's literary excursion into the animal kingdom, Midnight's Tale, is both shorter and less narrow in scope than George Orwell's Animal Farm, but proves a bit more entertaining.Featuring a slight nod to Orwell, Berger does not use his tale to employ animals as lampooned versions of humans, but instead simply tries to portray animal life, with the suggestion of the larger state of the world, through a perspective humans can understand.The result is at times humorous and at times poignan [...]

    4. The memory of his beloved Amanda haunts Midnight as he makes his way through this bitter-sweet and poignant tale. As we follow Midnight on his travels, we hear snippets of the wisdom of war horses, and learn what evil smells like. Mr Berger has taken his usual touch to an unusual subject, and will make you feel surprisingly invested in the outcome of events for this likeable goat.

    5. This was a free sample on amazon, thought I would check it out. Didn't realize the whole story was told through the eyes of a goat. I dont think its fair for me to rate this because I am not really into stories like this. I only read a few chapters then had to stop. Just a little weird to me. I think animal lovers may like it?

    6. This Kindle Single is a quick read and a charming story. It has a lot to say, especially since the main character is a little goat. There were several times I laughed out loud reading Midnight's observations. Highly recommended for a quick little change of pace.

    7. Like other reviewers, I appreciated this novella's originality, warmth and humor. I found errors in punctuation, typos and grammar distracting, however.

    8. I really like this Kindle Single. It is a short sweet story about a goat. Maybe it is not about a goat. You decide.

    9. This was magnificent. I had forgotten it was about a goat when I started it and that made it even better.

    10. Utterly marvelous. This little goat's story is heartwarming and heartrending. You'll be glad to have Midnight in your life. Read this little novella.
