This year is a total blank for me, but having just read Octavia Butler's Kindred, the chances are high I'll get around to Fledgling in the next year.

Never Let Me Go is the worst book I've ever finished. It makes me angry just thinking about it. Voting for Beyond Black which I'm reading now, as it happens.

i didn't know amazon owned goodreads. i use it for cataloging what i've read and not much else.

Sorting by publication year in goodreads seems completely worthless, is there some way of doing it that’s accurate?

xxp I knew there would be some extreme anti ishiguro opinions here. I like it. The setup is classic ishiguro, putting people in a situation that they cannot see is absurd and watching how they deal with it.

Would like to read The Sea to see if Banville's sad middle aged bachelor schtick still does anything for me, at the time it was my favourite booker winner whose title is "The Sea" one or more times. Saturday is, as noted, embarrassing.

JS: I was using the "date pub" column. It seemed to work OK for recent years.

the only two I've read here are the Vollman and the Zadie Smith, so I won't vote, but if I did, Vollman by a million miles.
