Book Awards II complete


I deviated from my original list, but I did read 10 award-winning books so I'm marking this one as complete. I'm hoping that there'll be a Book Awards III this year -- there are a number of awards that I've never paid any attention to and another challenge will help me go outside my comfort zone. Anyway, the books that I read for the challenge this time ended up being as follows:

Atonement by Ian McEwan (winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, 2002) -- review here

The Book of Ruth by Jane Hamilton (winner of the PEN/Hemingway award, 1988) -- review here

The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy (winner of the Man Booker prize, 1997)

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck (winner of the Pulitzer Prize, 1940) -- review here

Life of Pi by Yann Martel (winner of the Man Booker prize, 2002) -- review here

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez (García Márquez won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982) -- review here

Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson (winner of the PEN/Faulkner award, 1995) -- review here

The Spy Who Came in From the Cold by John le Carre (winner of the Edgar Award, 1965) -- review here

Tales of the South Pacific by James Michener (winner of the Pulitzer Prize, 1948) -- review here

The World According to Garp by John Irving (winner of the National Book Award, 1980) -- review here
