The #WomensPrize shortlist is out! What do you all think? I‘m really disappointed that #RemoteSympathy didn‘t make it, I enjoyed it the most. #TheSentence is also great, and #GreatCircle is definitely a masterpiece, although I didn‘t enjoy it as much as I hoped it would. #TheBreadtheDevilKnead is also not to my taste. I haven‘t read the others.

squirrelbrain I got 3 right on my list, although I‘m claiming 4 as the Shafak was 7th on my list! I too am disappointed about Remote Sympathy. My least fave on the shortlist is the Ozeki, I just didn‘t love it. (edited) 3mo
TrishB I didn‘t even finish Remote Sympathy! Need to read some more though as only read 2 on shortlist. 3mo
jlhammar I'm pretty pleased with it. Four of the six I was hoping to see here made it. The only one I haven't read here is The Bread the Devil Knead so planning to give that one a try before the winner is announced. I agree, it's a shame Remote Sympathy didn't advance. I would have swapped Great Circle for Remote Sympathy or Build Your House Around My Body. 3mo

TheKidUpstairs I decided not to read the full long list, I was waiting for this and now I'll dive in! 3mo
JillR None of the ones I‘ve had chance to read so far have made it to the shortlist! Now is that an excuse to buy more books?! 3mo
thewallflower0707 @TrishB Why didn‘t you like it? 3mo
thewallflower0707 @TheKidUpstairs Smart Choice, though I would really recommend adding Remote Sympathy to the list too! I thought it was very special. 3mo
thewallflower0707 @Squirrel oh no, Ozeki sounds cool, why didn‘t you like it? I definitely want to read Shafak‘s book! 3mo
thewallflower0707 @JillR Definitely, treat yourself! 3mo
TrishB I didn‘t like the writing style or the characters- thought Greta just came across really stupid and naive. It generally came across really unbelievable. I did give it 150 pages but I guess it wasn‘t for me. 3mo
