The Booker Award or How They Made One of My Favorite Awards Boring


Manbooker official logoReally.  I get it.  The Booker people like Hilary Mantel.  But did she really need to win again?

Not only has no woman ever won twice, but never has a sequel won after the first one also won.

I don't know about you, but I usually love this award because it exposes me to authors who are very good but maybe not well known all over the world.  I also enjoyed how they usually do not repeat authors.  Once Mantel won, she is always a Booker award winning author.  She doesn't need another one. Give me someone new, please.

Also, enough with the Tudors already people.

But that's juts me being crabby.

*******ADDITION TO ORIGINAL POST*******

I am not the only one irked about this.
