Hanya cam buku De Zoet yg saya masih terhegeh-hegeh nak baca. Bahagian pertamanya best, bahagian kedua ni ada slow sikit....rasanya bahagian akhir, laju balik kut.

(Memang gua ada agenda anti ManBooker Prize ni la....!)

:p

Actually, katak, the 'De Zoet' book is quite readable. If I or you want to renew our faith with the Booker Prize, they must first make this book its prize winner. It's just the second part (out of three total) that seems a bit slow after the neck breaking speed of the first part with the introduction of De Zoet.

The 2nd part is all about the Japanese girl De Zoet is infatuated with. She's trying to escape the rape-camp she's trapped in. Just get on with it! They're going to rape you and you're having conversations with a cat??? Move it or lose it, woman!

I've read all of Mitchell's books and liked them, and all except one were longlisted, and he's never won, so I don't really expect he will this time. :P

Tak baca lagi buku2 lain -- most of the authors aren't even familiar.
