2005 Booker shortlist

The Booker shortlist has been announced. Details here.

The books which made it are:

Banville, John - The Sea
Barnes, Julian - Arthur & George
Barry, Sebastian - A Long Long Way
Ishiguro, Kazuo - Never Let Me Go
Smith, Ali - The Accidental
Smith, Zadie - On Beauty

I just finished reading Arthur and George and not surprised that it made the shortlist. I was expecting the Dan Jacobson to make it after reading Falstaff's review on that one but it didn't.

Go read the Booker Mela reviews here. More reviews to come soon!
