Top Four Man Bookers’ Read

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 :

  1. 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- 

Book Cover of Hot Milk

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

Ali Smith’s How to be both

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 

The first book from Nigeria that I have read

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.

  1. I haven’t read any of the above-mentioned books, yet. So, all are added to the bucket list. I’ve just finished reading Ghachar Ghochar and started with Neil Gaiman’s Fragile Things. So, will pick one from here after the current read. Cheers!


  2. I guess I haven’t read too many of the Booker prize winners. But your list sounds interesting and makes me want to pick these up at the earliest :D.
