The Booker Prizes – Shortlist

Gasp. Shudder. No Apeirogon or Love and Other Thought Experiments?

Have you read any of these? What are your thoughts?

I guess I should feel grateful that The Mirror and the Light didn’t make the list.

    I’m grateful that Such a Fun Age didn’t make it.

    Interestingly, the 6 shortlist books were smack in the middle of The Reader’s Room ranking. Y’all liked 4 books more, then these 6 books were all in a row, and then you liked 3 books less.

      False. I forgot that everyone hated The New Wilderness. LOL! But the other 5 were right in the middle of the pack! LOL

  3. Well: with the Booker …. you just never know. I think its perfectly reasonable that the Mantel was omitted – give others a chance etc. And I like the diversity.

  4. Congrats to Lisa for correctly predicting 4 books! Wow. Susie, Anita and Tracy all predicted 3, I got 2 and BookWork got 1. What a list!

    I would say thanks, but I’m really disappointed that The New Wilderness was on there, and Apeirogon or LAOTE weren’t.

  6. I had only read The Mirror and the Light. I’m shocked it was not included. But I guess I shouldn’t. Looks like we are looking more at relevancy based on current events. Instead of masterful writing about past events, as if history was no longer relevant. scary
