Once again, we've brought together all six books (in keepsake hardback) that make up the Man Booker Prize Shortlist - including George Saunders' winner, Lincoln in the Bardo. Do you agree with the judges' decision of awarding this prestigious award to a supernatural thriller that features Abraham Lincoln's son?
Celebrating the best contemporary fiction of the past 12 months, this year's shortlist has something for everyone and with our brilliant value collection, you're bound to find something to love. This year's list has everything from thought-provoking novels from acclaimed authors including Paul Auster and Ali Smith to a simply stunning debut from Fiona Mozlet.
Among these brilliant books are an atmospheric debut about violence in contemporary society; an intelligent read about relationships, time and ageing; a love story about two people bonding in a world that is falling apart; Paul Auster's account of four parallel lives; and a novel that asks 'how far would you go to belong?'
I love buying this collection as it introduces me to different writers, however trying to read 4321 was a physical challenge - it is so big and heavy. I almost lost the interest to finish it. I'm not sure I agree with the choices of books this time.
Ideal present for 98 year old! -
Every year I buy this collection for my mother - now aged 98. She is still an avid reader and really likes this opportunity to keep up with the latest and best. Some she loves, some she hates, all she finds interesting. Amazing value from Book People.
