Man Booker 2017 Long List 

The 2017 longlist: 

4 3 2 1 by Paul Auster (US) (Faber & Faber)
Days Without End by Sebastian Barry (Ireland) (Faber & Faber)
History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund (US) (Weidenfeld & Nicolson)
Exit West by Mohsin Hamid (Pakistan-UK) (Hamish Hamilton)
Solar Bones by Mike McCormack (Ireland) (Canongate)
Reservoir 13 by Jon McGregor (UK) (4th Estate)
Elmet by Fiona Mozley (UK) (JM Originals)
The Ministry Of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy (India) (Hamish Hamilton)
Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders (US) (Bloomsbury Publishing)
Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie (UK-Pakistan) (Bloomsbury Circus)
Autumn by Ali Smith (UK) (Hamish Hamilton)
Swing Time by Zadie Smith (UK) (Hamish Hamilton)
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead (US) fleet 

I have read Solar Bones and Lincoln in the Bardo. It will be interesting to re-read and review these brilliant books. I have copies of underground railroad and Exit West on on TBR shelf. So, this would be a great time to read them. I have been meaning to read Autumn and swing time for some time. So, this will be a great excuse to read them.  The other books on the List sound interesting. So, despite my intention not to read the list, it looks like I’m going for a Booker read again. How about you are you going to read the List this year? Is it a good list? Or do you think there are too many well known names.
