Johanna | 25 comments The library just got my copy of Oscar Wao yesterday--I'm taking that as a sign Oscar Wao is winning this.

Scott | 50 comments With all the judges getting a vote this round, Oscar Wao should win easily. Remainder does sound interesting and I would like to read it soon but I really enjoyed Oscar Wao and think it will appeal to more readers.

I recently finished Savage Detectives and I thought it was excellent. It's unfortunate the one judge was an ass with his praise since that might turn some readers away from a good book. I'm pretty torn whether Oscar Wao is better than Detectives. I'd be happy with a tie for best. Having just read Detectives I may have given it the edge.
