2007 Man Booker Prize for Fiction

TODAY’S THE DAY. The winner of the 2007 Man Booker Prize for Fiction will be announced in London today! So, who will it be? Will Ian McEwan get his second Booker Prize with On Chesil Beach? Or will it be Lloyd Jones’s Mister Pip or Anne Enright’s The Gathering? Perhaps Nicola Barker, Mohsin Hamid or Indra Sinha? Truth be told, your guess is as good as mine.

Anne Enright’s bleak tale of dysfunctional family life set in Dublin scoops the 2007 Man Booker Prize for Fiction.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist is just not good enough. Darkmans is too experimental for me. On Chesil Beach was a great read but too minor a book to win the prize. Mister Pip reads rather well, too. Animal's People has an engaging protagonist whom I like. The Gathering looks like another Irish story but the prose is wonderful. I will settle for Anne Enright as the winner of this year's Man Booker Prize!
