Burial Rites would be my pick of the above list, but as I've only read two in the complete list, I'm definitely not qualified to pick;)

Sally906 I've read The Night Guest by Fiona McFarlane is very thought provoking.

I have Burial Rites on my TBR pile scheduled to read as my debut Aussie Author for the Aussie Authors challenge.

Michael (knowledgelost) Not a bad list but I think it will all come down to All the Birds, Singing, Burial Rites and The Night Guest. My vote would be for Burial Rites

I hope it's Burial Rites - it deserves the recognition in my opinion.

I'm afraid Burial Rites is the only one I have read. It was very very good though!

Jenny Hayworth (goodreadscomjenhay) | 2 comments I just finished reading Boy, Lost and scored it 5/5. I also have read Burial Rites which I also scored 5/5. I have not read any of the others. I don't envy the judges trying to choose between such great works.

Boy, Lost

Burial Rites was so good! It will definitely be a hard decision!

Michael (michaelswensson) | 10592 comments I have only read Burial Rites out of that list and like everyone else it found it to be a wonderful read.
