Who will win the next Man Booker prize? Some place bets with Graham Sharpe, 'the Man Booker Bookie' in the William Hill Organisation.
Blurb Summary: On December 3, 1976, gunmen stormed Bob Marley's house, machine guns blazing, nearly killing all inside. Marley left the country three days later, not to return for two years. Deftly spanning decades and continents and peopled with a wide range of characters assassins, journalists, drug dealers, and even ghosts, this is the fictional exploration of that dangerous and unstable time and its bloody aftermath, from Kingston in the '70s, to a radically altered Jamaica in the 1990s.
[ ] A brief history of seven killings is too vulgar for me. I abandoned it after reading the first 5% and the last 5%.
Other Short-list Nominees:
In August 2004, I found that without trying I'd read a couple of dozen Booker winners or nominees, and had often admired them, and had sometimed been amazed by them.
So I resolved to at least look at future shortline nominations.
I marked with a star each of the Bookers that I liked, and with more than one star if I loved it. Approximate ratings (your kilometerage may vary):
