See the full shortlist here and the full longlist here.

Over at The Mookse and Gripes GoodReads page (here) our consensus winner was also The Vegetarian. Though it was fourth place on my longlist rankings, it was my first pick from the shortlist (at least, those I read!). Several good books were axed before the shortlist!

The Shadow Jury also announced their winner. You can read their choice, which, you know, might convince you to check out The Vegetarian if you haven’t already, and some fun details about their runners-up, here!
