On the eve Man Booker Prize shortlist announcement I thought I would share my predictions of the six books that I feel will be left and who I think will win the prize overall.
My personal shortlist is as follows:
- A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
- Sleeping On Jupiter– Anuradha Roy
- The Chimes – Anna Smaill
- A Brief History Of Seven Killings– Marlon James
- The Green Road – Anne Enright
- Satin Island – Tom McCarthy
My overall gut reaction from the moment the longlist was announced was that the winner of the prize would be A Little Life. Although I still have yet to pick up a copy I’m desperate to read it as at the time I thought it would be a big deal, since then it’s received a lot of media attention and everytime I walk pass the local bookshop I see on display in the window.
Hopefully I’ll be picking up a copy sometime soon regardless on if it makes the shortlist tomorrow or not!
What do you think about my predictions? Have you got a top list or just one you think will win?
Let me know in the comments.
