ManBooker

#bookreview (1) #palagannusantara Penulis @nellaneva94 Penerbit @jejakpublisher ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nusantara di penghujung abad 22, ketika era robotik melampaui kecerdasan manusia, dan dunia pada masa itu memang bukan tempat aman bagi siapa pun, tak terkecuali bagi Kat, seorang remaja laki2 yang mengalami nasib malang. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kedua orang tua Kat ditembak oleh orang yang tidak dikenal, adik perempuannya hilang entah kemana. Berbekal petunjuk, Kat meminta bantuan kepada Robotik bernama Garda untuk menemukan adiknya kembali, meskipun ia harus menjadi budak. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alih-alih mencari adik perempuannya, pencarian kat justru mengarahkannya ke sesuatu misteri yang jauh lebih besar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Setelah Dharitri yang bikin aku jatuh hati, kini giliran Palagan Nusantara yang juga sudah buat aku kesengsem, selain temanya yang unik dan penuh dengan muatan fiksi ilmiah, yang paling aku suka itu penamaan tokoh-tokohnya, mungkin sudah menjadi ciri khas bagi sipenulis sepertinya. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kalian sudah baca belum? Nah bagi kaian yang belum punya bukunya bisa ikutan Giveawaynya di postingan aku sebelumnya, bagi yang sudah punya bukunya, kuy kita baca bareng2 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ======================================== #bookstagram #bookphotograph #bookstagramindonesia #booknerd #bookish #bookid #booklovers #indoreader #bibliophlie #bookweek #bookworm #bookmaniac #bookmail #currentlyreading #igreads #booklover #readoutsidethebox #bookoftheday #readingforfun #bookaddict #bookish_indonesia #author #fiction #bookfeatured #manbooker #bookporn

Mike McCormack on @tramppress's decision to publish #SolarBones: "Everything others had pissed and moaned about, they found praiseworthy. It was their thesis that the publishing industry underestimates the reading public." * * #betweenthelines #mikemccormack #tramppress #indiepress #indiepublishing #irishwriters #irishliterature #manbooker #goldsmithsprize #badass

"Sai was not miraculous; she was an uninspiring person, a reflection of all the contradictions around her, a mirror that showed him himself far too clearly for comfort." . This Booker winner covers a wide array of characters finding and defending their place in India and the wider world. It is an impressive piece of work but i'm afraid it hasn't bowled me over. I found the narrative to be quite skittish and I found it tricky, at times, to keep a grip on the story as a result. . #bookstagram #books #kirandesai #theinheritanceofloss #manbooker #manbooker50

“Can one, in such a self-portrait, omit something which affected one’s whole being and which one has thought of every day of one’s life? ‘Every day’ exaggerates, but not much. I do not need to ‘recall’ Hartley, she is here. She is my end and my beginning, she is alpha and omega.” #TheSeaTheSea by #IrisMurdoch @vintagebooks I’d say pretty much all of the characters in this book are unlikeable and ridiculous, but I was drawn in by the story right away and loved every bit of it. . . . . #manbooker50 #manbookerprizewinner1978 #manbookerprizewinner #manbookerprize1978 #manbookerprize #manbookerwinner1978 #manbookerwinner #manbooker1978 #manbooker #myyearofmanbookers #manbookering #britishliterature #britishauthor #finestfiction #bookstagram #bookquotes #bookcover

Read Han Kang's "The White Book" this afternoon. Seemingly an exercise in form rather than content, and intentionally ambiguous for the most part. It lacks the brilliance of Nabokov, Soseki, or Joyce to be effective as a stream of consciousness work, but enjoyable nonetheless. #hankang #thewhitebook #manbookerprize #manbooker #한강 #흰 #한국문학 #koreanliterature

What a beautiful morning! ☀️ The most beautifully illustrated journal of new writing, @popshotmag, will enable you to extract maximum pleasure from a day outside in the garden/park. Bob down if you're in town to take a look.

Read this cover to cover. Superb writing in this issue @popshotmag 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

I sought out this book primarily to leverage being caught in the throes of Hallyu that has me feverishly obsessing over all things Korean. Might as well explore its literature too, I thought. Kang is the first Korean writer to be nominated for and to win the Booker. She was honoured with the prize in 2016 for the English translation of this book that was originally published in Korea in 2007. I read this book as a meditation on art, artists, mental health, and the bond of sisterhood. In a society as deeply non-vegeterian, conformist, and patriarchal as Korea is, what happens when a woman asserts her will to be atypical? What are the limits of familial responsibilities? What are the struggles to understand and be understood? What does an artist do when propelled by a deep need to create something that will destroy every semblance of normalcy for him and his family? I loved how Kang tells a persuasive story about art and it's interpretation. I found myself suddenly becoming uncomfortable with my earlier empathetic response to a situation when she presents another person's interpretation of what has happened. Skillfully, she takes no sides and betrays no one. Pondering and feeling conflicted even as I post this. * * #bookstagram #bookstagramindia #bookcovers #korea #koreanliterature #hankang #thevegeterian #manbooker #booker #thebookerprize #literature #bookreviews

I still haven't read this but I'm pushing it up my TBR after yesterday's #30daysofindiebooks recommendation from @sandstonepress! Tell us about your favourite books this week & use the hashtag to be shared! . . Regrann from @sandstonepress - It's day 16 of #30daysofindiebooks, and today we're celebrating the phenomenon that is Graeme Macrae Burnet. We were thrilled to see His Bloody Project, published by #Saraband, shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and the wonderful response from the Scottish Publishing industry. . #hisbloodyproject #graememacraeburnet #contraband #independentpublishers #scottishbookstagrammer #book #books #bookish #booknerd #bookstagram #bookworm #manbookerprize #manbooker #igreads #scotland #scottish #scottishwriter #lovereading #booksofinstagram #bookrec #bookrecommendations #crime #literary #literature #publishing - #regrann

"Maybe that was her mistake. She thought she could marry someone she liked and be happy with him, and have happy children. She did not realise every choice is fatal." . As we are coming to the end of the #manbooker50 challenge I am going to try and up my game in the last few weeks. I completed this book super quickly for me. . The Gathering won in 2007 the same year that On Chesil Beach and Mister Pip. I have read more from this years shortlist than any other. The Gathering is an interesting look at large families, finding your place and understanding sex (desired or not). There are very similar themes to On Chesil Beach although The Gathering comes across as more impactful as it tackles the impacts of sexual abuse. I think I enjoyed some of the shortlisted books more but Enright's writing and skill through difficult topics is clearly masterful. . #manbooker #anneenright #thegathering #books #bookstagram #familydrama

Finally reading Han Kang’s Man Booker winning The Vegeterian & enjoying an inexpensive blended Haig whisky for a night cap. #TheVegetrian #Whisky #ManBooker #HanKang #Bookstagram #Books #Literature @haigclub #HaigClub

#bookreview #resensipisauluka (3) #theknifeofneverlettinggo Penulis #patrickness Penerbit @bukugpu ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bagaimanapun juga. 'Kebisingan' pada dasarnya adalah pikiran. Pikiran, pikiran, pikiran. Bicara tentang invasi privasi. Kebisingan ada di mana-mana - dan tidak bisa dihentikan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ada karakter lucu dalam buku ini yaitu Manchee, aku suka banget anjing lucu ini, terutama saat kebisingannya terdengar. 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Viola adalah satu-satunya karakter wanita dalam buku ini. Tanpa dia, mungkin petualangan Todd tidak akan terjadi. Viola Wanita yang luar biasa dan berani dan saya berharap ada kisah romansa dalam buku 2 dan 3 antara Todd dan Viola. 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Aku tidak akan membahas karakter antagonisnya, tentu saja akan ada banyak kata-kata tidak menyenangkan yang mungkin akan terdengar seperti mengumpat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Akhir kata, Buku ini mampu membuatku tertawa, agak sedih, sesak napas, mengumpat dengan keras, dan kadang bikin shock. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ======================================== #bookstagram #bookphotograph #bookstagramindonesia #booknerd #bookish #bookid #booklovers #indoreader #bibliophlie #bookweek #bookworm #bookmaniac #bookmail #currentlyreading #igreads #booklover #readoutsidethebox #bookoftheday #readingforfun #bookaddict #bookish_indonesia #author #fiction #bookfeatured #manbooker #bookporn

I have finished this rather long #manbooker winner this evening. There is so much energy in the book, it is quite incredible and alive as a result. I have to admit that there was a point where I thought it was dragging a little bit but it definitely picked up. . I think it is very unlikely that I would have picked this up without the #manbooker50 challenge as it isn't something that instantly screams "me" but it has proved me wrong. I was really quite fascinated by some of the characters, especially Nina in her many variations. . #books #bookstagram #abriefhistoryofsevenkillings #marlonjames #vinylrecords

13.05.18 Next up in the #manbooker50 challenge for me, is The Sellout by Paul Beatty. . Winner of the 2016 Man Booker prize, this will be my most recent winner that I’ve read, not owning a copy yet of Lincoln in the Bardo. . I have only read The Prologue so far, which is 24 pages. I found the first few pages confusing, and it didn’t grab me from the beginning at all. Now, I feel like I’ve settled into the style a bit more, and I’m looking forward to seeing what it was that moved the judges to choose this winner. 🏆 . ➡️ Have you read this? How did you feel about the opening? No spoilers please! 😆 . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookblogger #manbookerprize #paulbeatty #thesellout #currentlyreading #currentread #reader #reading #amreading #bookchallenge #manbooker #oneworldpublications #satire #americanliterature #manbookermay #emmabridgewater #bookandtea #bookandblanket

Afternoon pick me up 🤓☕️📖 Has anyone read the 2017 Man Booker Prize winner Lincoln in the Bardo? It's not what I expected and I've been advised to push through a slow-ish start, that it's a slow burn but absolutely worth it. It feels promising! I'd love to know your thoughts! . . . . . #lincolninthebardo #georgesaunders #manbooker #manbooker2017 #manbookerprize #manbookerprize2017 #manbookerprizewinner #bookish #bookreview #lovebooks #lovereading #literaryfiction #bloomsbury #willielincoln #afternoontea #teaandabook #booklover #avidreader #imreading #busyreading #alwaysreading #headinabook #bookobssesed #novelnerd #writerswhoread #afternoonpickmeup
