I was about three quarters of the way through this when it only went and won the Booker. So I thought I better finish it. Probably the worst Booker winner Since The White Tiger.

A bit painful, inelegant, didactic and even inauthentic. The book projects an authority that it never earns. Writing is clumsy and cliché-cluttered. Stock characters are fleshed out with lists of identifiers rather than actual observations and insights. Not very good.
