I also read it quite a few years ago and never felt I gave it a proper assessment so I thought it deserved a re-read and I did change my mind quite a bit. Thanks, Richard. :):)

Barbara I read this about 10 years ago and didn't realize it was a Booker Prize winner. I don't think I'd heard of the Booker Prize back then What a limited life I led.

Paltia This is such a considerate and thorough review. Gives a person lots to contemplate. I think I’ll give it a read.

I first read it because it was the Booker Prize Winner way back then and didn't think it lived up to its award. The second read I appreciated it more but I still don't think it should have won. :):)

Thank you very much Paltia. It's a contemporary novel with a contemporary style so make sure you're in the right mood for it. Maybe that's why my opinion changed so much. :):)

Ilse Great review, Peter - for some reason this book keeps catching my eye in the local library, now I finally have an idea what is about. Which one would you have chosen as a winner in 2008 (I haven't read any of them yet)?

Thank you very much, Ilse, really appreciated. I can't say for sure which one should have won because I only read 3 of them. I thought Sea of Poppies was slightly better than this one but the best of the 3 (for me) was clearly Sebastian Barry's The Secret Scripture.
