Is this book worth buying?
Did this book actually win the Booker prize (noticed the tag)? If so, what year and where can I find this info? Thanks.
It was on the shortlist for the 2008 prize, but did not win. http://www.themanbookerprize.com/prize/thisyear/shortlist
no only a finalist
My bad! It was short-listed but did not win. I've corrected my tag. So sorry!
I can imagine a great movie could come of this...
Never thought about it, but I agree - it would be a terrific film!
