Pixelina At first glance, I am slightly under-whelmed.

Yep! And the leader is... the one that hasn't even been published yet.

Thanks for drawing this to my attention Bettie. I wish I had read some of them."


I don't think you are missing much this year


B the BookAddict Hey, thanks for the invite, Bettie. I always find the Man Booker books a bit hit-or-miss for me. I've marked Siri Hustvedt as a want-to-read from this year's list. About to trawl thru Man Booker lists.

You're welcome; somebody usually gets around to it but I just happened to be at a loose end this morning. Admittedly, I usually find the [Man] Booker a little underwhelming

Interestingly, some of the media coverage has commented that even with a wider field this year the selection seems somewhat narrower.
