Yeah I might have voted for Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie if it had been on here, other than that I think maybe I've read World War Z but not sure ¯\(°_o)/¯ - will send you a list for future years.

In my defense that one wasn't on the list, would totally have included it if it had been!

Just please make sure my old mate Magnus and his cruel bird make it back for 2011 :)

Of these, I've only read World War Z and The Girl Who Played With Fire. If I were to vote I'd go with the zombie epic as displaying an impressive imagination, but in truth neither one rates as a "favourite", so I will not vote.

Enjoyed the half of World War Z that I listened to on audiobook, but the author's grasp of writing characters with different nationalities feels like it comes from an 80's X-Men comic - Chinese character talks about the Middle Kingdom, Israeli character talks about being used to being surrounded by enemies, German character says he will not go "quietly like some good Hitler Youth".

I experienced WWZ as an audiobook too but barely remember it
