P is for Pulitzer 2013

The Pulitzer prize was announced recently and this time they awarded a prize for fiction. Last year, they did not.

They chose The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson. It sounds more exciting than the book they chose in 2011. I remember reading an excerpt and thinking: I don’t want to read more.

The Orphan Master’s Son excerpt and summary is different. It sounds like it has a lot of adventure and excitement and interesting – all the things I like in a novel. Wondering if I should try it out.

But maybe the main character isn’t someone I would like. I don’t know. I still haven’t managed to finish the first A Song of Ice and Fire. So I don’t know and I am still trying to decide.

Also, this is a Pulitzer novel, so maybe it won’t really be as exciting as it sounds. Could turn out to be a dull bore.
