Now we know!

Well, that was a bit of a surprise, enjoyed 'The Song of Achilles' and sure it will become a popular read. We were all quite a long way from the judges in our opinions! Look forward to re reading all of the short listed books and still sure of my personal favorite - 'Painter of Silence'. Great experience being involved in our shadow group and do hope we can do it again next year. Sue


  1. It was my early favourite but I didn't think it could win. Rather pleased it did though.

  2. Yes we were thinking a bit differently from the judges, Sue, weren't we? This book is the one I'm least inclined to read, not being over-fond of classical mythology, and I won't be changing my mind now it's won!
    However, we did say it had all the marks of a best-seller, so we were right there!

  3. HA HA HA HA HA HA! I feel so vindicated, as it was the only book on the list I saw as worth reading. Yay for the pink cave!!
