Man Booker Shortlist Prediction

I must come clean immediately and point out that I have not read all of the Booker Longlist. I managed six, which is exactly half of the longlist. I have two (Narcopolis and The Garden of Evening Mists) left over which I will read and review soonish. So my predictions are based on my own reading and that of people whose opinions I set some store by. They should be read as much as a list of what I would like to see shortlisted as of what I think will be. It undoubtedly suffers from my not having read everything. (The full Longlist is here).

  1. I’ve not read them all (abandoned most as they weren’t to my taste) but I suspect Narcopolis will make the shortlist and I’d probably remove Philida from your prediction to accommodate it.

    • Yes, Narcopolis has been the novel most people suggest I should have included at the expense of Philida. I’ve read neither, which is a real shame, and which also makes it harder! Were it not for my ARC backlog, I would start it tonight!
