The Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2015 shortlist is revealed

A Little Life - Hanya Yanagihara Satin Island: A novel - Tom McCarthy A Spool of Blue Thread: A novel - Anne Tyler The Year of the Runaways: A novel - Sunjeev Sahota

The 2015 shortlist of six novels is:


Cheering for: A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara 


I picked this as the winner as this is the only book I like and might read in the pile of six books shortlisted. 


Why? Because it is about bromance, an element I like in a book. 


Not upset if this win: Satin Island by Tom McCarthy


Blah blah blah literature, no plot, confusing and call it art. 




Nicely surprised if this win: A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James


Attempted murder of Bob Marley. That usually get the attention as everyone like Bob Marley when they drink. 


Feel a bit strange but happy a woman win: A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler 


Women have feelings and boring women non productive blah blah. Too much talking with not much happened. 


Disappointed if this one win: The Year of the Runaways by Sunjeev Sahota


The man run from India and missed India and want India but not going back. Good book if you like cultural type of things. Not. If you don't. 




Pissed off if this one win: The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma


Blah blah religious bullshit. More religious talking. Blah blah blah bullshit, blah blah. Nope. Hate it. 



Update: A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James won. Congratulation. And like I said, I'm nicely surprised.
