Jeremiah Cunningham | 689 comments The Guardian has released their 2018 Not the Booker prize shortlist. You can find it here as well as the process for the winner being chosen. It is an interesting group of books, some of which sound very intriguing.

Cheryl (cherylllr) I've actually despised the (admittedly few) Booker books I've tried. I'll take a look at this other list.

Edit after adding links and investigating. Ok, these seem to be even more-so downers about dysfunction. Two have the word 'terrifying' in the blurb, at least one is a dystopia, etc... no, not for me.

Susie | 4488 comments Chery, which ones from the Man Booker have you read thus far?

message 10: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl (cherylllr) Not sure. Life of Pi, and maybe Sense of an Ending, as far as winners, maybe some others on the list look familiar. No interest in digging to see which nominees I've read.

Susie | 4488 comments Ah yes, Life of Pi wasn’t my favourite either. I love Julian Barnes though. Different strokes. 😊
