"Connie Willis deploys the apparatus of science fiction to illuminate character and relationships, and her writing is fresh, subtle, and deeply moving."-- "New York Times Book Review"
"The versatile Kate Reading skillfully renders Sandra's first-person voice throughout, does well with audibly differentiating the various characters from one another, and especially shines when it comes to Flip's 'Valley Girl' drawl. Bellwether is an amusing diversion for anyone who has ever wondered how fads get started and how they spread."-- "SFSite.com"
"Willis' story builds slowly but is realistic and engrossing."-- "Midwest Book Review"
Reading, an experienced science fiction narrator, has a knack for making even the most otherworldly and bizarre stories sound entirely plausible and real. Reading's delivery is smooth and unwavering yet weighted with a certain uneasiness that abounds in the central character of Sandra Foster. As Flip, the annoying yet helpful sidekick, Reading becomes a distracted, disorganized individual, yet one with underplayed redeeming qualities that inadvertently save the day.-- "AudioFile" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
From the Inside Flap
Sandra Foster studies fads and their meanings for the HiTek corporation. Bennet O'Reilly works with monkey group behavior and chaos theory for the same
company. When the two are thrust together due to a misdelivered package and a run of seemingly bad luck, they find a joint project in a flock of sheep. But a series of setbacks and disappointments arise before they are able to find answers to their questions. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Nevertheless, the subject matter is thought-provoking, and as I had never heard of the term "Bellwether" before, I did learn something that can be applied to life. Anyone in a managerial or teaching position might find these ideas very useful indeed.
