SOLAR

 This came Wednesday to me via the lovely Sarah at bookrabbit .This already is probably the most talked about book of the year so far ,McEwan seems to polarize opinion in people ,i personally am on the fence regarding him having read two of his books loved one and was disappointed with the other so i am coming to this with an open mind .This will be a booker contender for sure and will probably be on the longlist ,if last year was a mainly female booker  this year is going be a male list some contenders already out in my humble opinion .

  • Peter Carey oliver and parrot in america
  • Alex Preston this bleeding city
  • Mike Thomas pocket notebook
  • Tim Pears landed
  • Yann Martell Beatrice and Virgil
  • David Mitchell the thousand autumns of Jacob De Zoet

To name a few ,a couple aren’t out yet but looking like a great year

    I have yet to read any McEwan, but all the praise this has been getting has me thinking that maybe it wouldn’t be a bad introduction.
