Booker 2007 Shortlist

Written by Chris Routledge, 6th September 2007

The shortlist for this year's Man Booker prize was announced today with most newspapers, including The Guardian focussing on Ian McEwan's chances of becoming the third writer to win the prize twice. His novel On Chesil Beach has also caused ripples for its length--200 pages--which some people think disqualifies it from categorization as a novel. How long is a novel anyway?

Dovegreyreader, a self-confessed bookaholic who embarked on reading the long list time ago, was pleased to have picked Four Out of Six.
