Amy S. -- introduction

Hello everyone. I'm writing at Steele on Entertainment [new name]. I've read eight Booker Prize Winners:

The White Tiger-- I loved this book. Very real, gritty and I could not put it down.
The Inheritance of Loss-- actually rather slow but good.
The Blind Assassin-- adored this story by Margaret Atwood but I've enjoyed almost everything she has written
The God of Small Things-- excellent
The English Patient-- wonderful of course thought my memories of the film far overshadow my reading
Possession-- this is a fabulous novel for anyone who loves poetry, the arts, literature, history
Moon Tiger-- short and delightful
Hotel du Lac-- slow to start but once I got into it, I enjoyed it

Up next: I'd like to read the most recent winner Wolf Hall, though I have had The Sea, The Sea by Iris Murdoch at home for years. I feel that I MUST have read The Remains of the Day and Oscar and Lucinda but I might have just seen the films.
Also, I've read many by Ian McEwan so Amsterdam would be a logical read for me [I want to read everything he's written].


  1. a complete bookerholic. you inspire me. you really are doing well. congrats and don't give up!

  2. Welcome Amy! I've revised our participants list to show your blog's new name. I like your assessment of Booker winners read so far. I'm reading Wolf Hall right now and really enjoying it.

    Can't wait to hear more from you!
