Currently I am reading my second and the third book from this years Man Bookers Longlist. After reading Exit West by Moshin Hamid, I am reading Ali Smith’s Autumn and Zadie Smith’s Swing Time-both books written by one of the best women writers of the modern era. One of the reasons that I love to following the Bookers is that I get exposed to the best of modern writing and sometimes books that don’t eventually win the prize end up becoming more memorable.
I have complied a list of books which are longlisted in past but have not won the prize but are great read :
- His bloody Project by Graeme Macrae Burnet
My favorite book from last years’long list, His bloody project is the historical fiction based in a Scottish village where author narrates the story of the triple murder accuse. <Full Review>
2. Hot Milk by Deborah Levy-
Mother and daughter duo come in a Spanish fishing village to find a cure for the senior’s strange disease. Sofia is very modern and wonderfully written character. This book was also shortlisted last year. <Full Review>
3. How to be Both by Ali Smith
My favorite book from 2014’s longlist, Ali Smith’s How to be both was a very intelligent piece of art. She managed to narrate 2 stories which are completely different in plot and era but still there are things in common. <Full Review>
4. The Fishermen
Not the easiest of the read but The Fishermen takes you to the place you have not gone before. Not a book for every mood though. <Full post>
I will love to know what do you think about these books.
