LoL. So, first Snap and now Warlight, thanks to your reviews both books will be added to my library wishlist. :) I do agree, tho, that these are unlikely contenders for the Booker. Neither are what I would hope to discover on a Booker list. Saying that, tho, The Blind Assassin was a mystery (largely), too. And that was a book that deserved the win, imo.

Oh, I'm just getting started. Booker Season is on!

Certainly, mysteries should not be outright excluded, but there's an expectation for the story to rise above the norm. I haven't read The Blind Assassin (yet), but having read other Atwood, I guarantee her work was nothing like Snap. Warlight is one that made sense on the list, it just failed to connect with me.
