Have you read any of these? Any opinions about which to read and/or which should win?


  1. Hmm, didn’t realise the shortlist was already announced. I loved Room, didn’t like The Long Song, and have C borrowed from the library at the moment.

    I also have no intentions of reading the Peter Carey, so I’ll be annoyed if that wins!! I just don’t get along very well with his writing – different strokes for different folk and all that.

    • Pre-ordered Room on my Kindle – comes out next week. Looks interesting!

What do you think?
