This year’s winner is:

  • The Luminaries, by Eleanor Catton

And for those of you in the United States, Little, Brown just published the book today. I have had a copy for a while, but so far I haven’t been able to bring myself to read the large (848 pages) book, but I am looking forward to it. Over at the Booker forum I host (here), The Luminaries was the second-favorite, after Jim Crace’s Harvest (which I have read and did enjoy). Congratulations to Eleanor Catton!
