Literary awards are quite subjective. I just finished The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing and I was quite disappointed. I expected a Nobel prize winner tobbe more interesting, 576 pages was too longwinded & jumbled. There were some interesting scenes like those recounting Africa, but the idea of "free women" who sleep w married women & communism was not convincing in the least, but rather redundant & boring.
