Bibliomaniac Scarlet

I came here to keep in touch with all my friends who left GR after the censorship debacle. I read a little of every genre. I co-blog at Musings of a Bibliomaniac.

A Tale for the Time Being - Ruth Ozeki

This is the first time I'm reading a shortlisted book before the Booker prize is announced ^_^

 

The Lowland sounds promising, but I'm not a fan of Jhumpa Lahiri, I'm afriad.

 

We Need New Names received mediocre reactions from some of my friends over at GR so that killed my enthusiasm.

 

The Luminaries is a little too long. 800+ pages??!

 

The Testament of Mary sounds a little too theological.

 

Harvest, while intriguing, hasn't been so buzzed about. I'll consider reading it if it wins.

 

So yeah, Ruth Ozeki's book is all I'm left with.

 

I hope I like it! Then I'll have something to root for when the Booker committee announces the winner next week!
