Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have great respect for the judges of any literary prize and particularly for the difficult task they endure to select a winner from a range of great writers. From this shortlisted selection I have my favorites, note the plural. This mixer of debut novels explore a wide range of subjects set in locations from across the world. In the Black Mountains of Wales for instance the character struggles with failings in their life, where a fictional exploration of the self is portrayed in a very captivating story. In another an American woman visits her great aunts in an English country house after a split with her husband and becomes entangled in a world of Victorian attitudes. There is a story of corruption, fraud and drugs from Africa and an other which is an intense thriller of American criminal psychology. There is a life story of Ida which starts with her almost drowning her sister on the Bournemouth beach and takes her to London. A tale of the lives of soldiers in the Yemeni/Aden deserts before the British withdrawal shows a time of egotistic military attitudes. It will be interesting to see to which novel/author the judges do award the prize and to fathom out the criterion they may have applied. I am reluctant to review these stories at any depth but would recommend them to be read by anyone who maybe interested in determining how they would judge literature and see if the judges agree. Please note that on my kindle the contents page did not list all the ten extracts, however they are all present in sequential order. This was slightly irritating as the find function from the contents page is one of the key features of e-pub on Kindle. I did nevertheless enjoy having a preview of these new novels.
