Luckily I got my review of this book up before the announcement
More like good planning!
I always love when I've actually read one of the books that wins an award.
It doesn't happen often enough for me, so it is worth being proud when it does happen.
Really must get this one off the bookshelf! I'm terrible at reading winners beforehand! (Although I did read the Orange Prize winner last year, so I'm dining out on that!)
I have to get my list out to see what that was!
I am so ashamed to admit that I haven't read this. *hangs head*
It's not often that I have read the winners so don't feel bad.
I dashed back to look at your review because the name "Anna Funder" rang a bell. Oh. The Stasiland author! I actually passed up reviewing her novel because I couldn't get into Stasiland -- ended up asking my son if he wanted to do a guest review, which he did. I may have to give it a go. I enjoy reading the Miles Franklin award winners, when I can get my hands on them.
