Well, the debates this year were… interesting. Can’t say I cared much for some of the contenders but the outcome wasn’t as bad as I was anticipating. The winner this year is:I was shocked to see The Boat People knocked out in the first round as I had the book as my top guess to win it all. I was also surprised that The Marrow Thieves made it as far as it did in the debates. While the topic of that book was no less important, it lacked the literary qualities to make it a winner.
The debates always leave me surprised. Last year was the only year that I found went as I was expecting it to. Why don’t you check out my review of Forgiveness and get your hands on a copy of this book quickly, as it is sure to fly off the shelves with its new title!
