Man Booker Prize 2017 – I guess I was wrong

Congratulations to this year’s winner of the Man Booker Prize:

33290527

Lincoln in the Bardo – George Saunders

So, I did not see that coming; I was sure either Exit West or Autumn would take home the prize. I am okay with Saunders winning; the book has been on my TBR for what feels like ages and now I have the perfect excuse to read it maybe sooner rather than later. I have heard really good things about this and I like books that play with genre and convention so my hopes are high.

How do you guys feel about this win? Did you see this coming? Let me know! I want to talk about this.

  1. I’m torn… on the one hand I really appreciate the literary merit and am glad the panel decided to award an experimental novel; on the other hand I just wish I’d personally connected with it a bit more. I gave it 4 stars but that was more on an intellectual level than an emotional one. I’ll be curious to see what you think!
