    Sweet Tooth is that good is it? It’s on the list of books to read/review but now I’m definitely looking forward to it!
    Yes, it’s disappointing not to see any Aus authors even make it to the longlist. Next (literary awards) season!

    I usually read most of the longlist and then all of the shortlist, but since a super black and red book store went broke, it is difficult to get the titles in time. I thought Carey’s novel was special, but the exclusion of McEwan’s Solar wasn’t surprising, it was good, but far from his best. His Sweet Tooth will win it next year.
    No Australians on the list is up there with my disappointment with the big sporting carnival results…
