"All 51 previous winners were considered by a panel of five specially appointed judges, each of whom was asked to read the winning novels from one decade of the prize’s history. We can now reveal that that the ‘Golden Five’ – the books thought to have best stood the test of time – are: In a Free State by V. S. Naipaul; Moon Tiger by Penelope Lively; The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje; Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel; and Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders."
"Readers are now invited to have their say on which book is their favourite from this shortlist. The month-long public vote (http://themanbookerprize.com/vote) on the Man Booker Prize website will close on 25 June. To help the public decide, the website will feature videos of each judge discussing their choice."
"The winner, as chosen by the public, will be announced and presented with a trophy at Golden Man Booker Live, the closing event of the Man Booker 50 Festival at Southbank Centre on 8 July 2018 at 7pm. The star-studded event will feature the five judges debating their shortlisted books, along with readings from actors."
I've read all five books on the shortlist, and Wolf Hall is easily my favorite. I encourage everyone to vote, especially if you've read two or more of these books, and let us know what book you choose, between now and 25 June. I'll declare a winner based on your vote.
Wolf Hall: 2 votes
I read all but The English Patient. I remember the Naipaul as a highly uncomfortable book, in a good way, but I wouldn't read it again. And of Moon Tiger I don't remember any plot at all, but good writing and atmosphere.
A Brief History of Seven Killings
The Narrow Road to the Deep North
Bring up the Bodies
The Sense of an Ending
The Finkler Question
I haven't read Lincoln in the Bardo, but from what I've heard of it, I would choose almost any of those books (full disclosure: I haven't read The Sellout either).
Of those from the last decade (I read all of those) I'd personally prefer Bring Up the Bodies, A Brief History of Seven Killings and The Luminaries, all three still very much with me. From the other decades I would have thought The Remains of the Day and Life of Pi (of those I read) were safe bets, I always thought they were universally loved. I'm the exception when it comes to Pi, but it seemed a safe candidate.
English Patient was named the overall winner and its been sitting on my shelf for ages, so I'll try to read it soon.
