The winner of the 2017 Man Booker Prize was announced today: George Saunders took the prize for Lincoln in the Bardo. I’ve read 3 of the 6 finalists; as my reviews indicate, I was certainly routing for this book.
See my review of the winner at https://schatjesshelves.blogspot.ca/2017/08/review-of-lincoln-in-bardo-by-george.html.
Here are my reviews of the other two finalists I have read:
History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund - https://schatjesshelves.blogspot.ca/2017/08/review-of-history-of-wolves-by-emily.html
Exit West by Mohsin Hamid - http://schatjesshelves.blogspot.ca/2017/10/review-of-exit-west-by-mohsin-hamid.html
I loved a feature in The Telegraph newspaper which highlighted “the dazzling highs (and cringe-making lows) of this year's finalists”: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/books/what-to-read/2017-man-booker-prize-shortlist-best-worst-lines/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter.
