2010 Booker Prize shortlist announced

Wow, what a surprise. The Booker Prize shortlist was announced, and I'm shocked to see a book like Room made it over two exceptional titles like Skippy Dies and Jacob de Zoet. The list is as follows:

Peter Carey, Parrot and Olivier in America
Emma Donoghue, Room
Damon Galgut, In A Strange Room
Howard Jacobson, The Finkler Question
Andrea Levy, The Long Song
Tom McCarthy, C

It's fantastic that Tom McCarthy's on there-- C is a very difficult and truly mesmerizing read. But, Room? My less-than-positive review can be read here.

Currently reading:
Great House, Nicole Krauss
