Description

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Winner of the Booker Prize 2019.

Longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2020.

Teeming with life and crackling with energy, told through many distinctive voices, this novel follows the lives of 12 very different characters. 

Mostly women, black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years. Joyfully polyphonic and sparklingly contemporary, Girl, Woman, Other is a gloriously new kind of history, a novel of our times: celebratory, ever dynamic and utterly irresistible.

Critiques

"The actress Anna-Maria Nabirye projects the characters superbly: she has a full, low timbre and a powerful directness." (The Times)

Great novel - flaws in narration.

Great characters and story, but let down a bit by the narrator who, although she has a good quality voice, often pauses (or doesn't pause) where she should, with incorrect emphasis. Many words are mispronounced, which indicates that the narrator is not familiar with the word itself. I agree with another reviewer who says the narrator needed someone in the recording sessions to direct her performance, spot the mistakes and fix them. Surely every audiobook performance is supervised by someone other than a sound engineer? I found myself listening out for the next mistake, and the next one, But I still enjoyed the story.

A thing of beauty...

Not a review, only to say that I definitely didn’t expect it to be as remarkable.

Nothing happens!

So yeah. I thought this would be an interesting read, and it won The Booker. How could I go wrong, right? With one click of a button it seems. The narrator did well but the author should learn what a story is.

The premise is a good one and I liked some of the characters but absolutely nothing happens in this book. It is just about ordinary women and their ordinary struggles. I like a plot, I like a beginning middle and a satisfying end. This had nothing.

Book for the new times and a new world

I would recommend this book to women who want to explore gender identity. It has some good parts and I particularly like the ending and the linking of the stories. Sometimes you don’t know how the stories will link up but I guess that’s the beauty of the book. Sometimes I thought it was very trendy and New Age. But it’s nice to read such a book in some ways to hear how people live and experience life. Very good LGBT Book.

Perfekter Fit

Ein sehr zu empfehlen der Roman, der zurecht den Booker Preis 2019 gewonnen hat. Trotz einiger stereotypen Charaktere macht es Spaß zu erkennen, wie sich die Figuren und ihre Geschichten am Ende zu einem Ganzen zusammenfügen.
