The Prize review Ù 3 Novelist Andrew Craig has not been sober in a very long time After losing his wife in an auto accident he believes to have been his own fault he turned to the bottle and to his sister in law Leah who acts as his caretaker and live in nurse Then when he is awarded the Nobel Prize in literature for his novel The Perfect State a historical jab at communism he heads for Stockholm hoping to find a reason to l. I was born in 1962 and was looking for a book from that year for a challenge This one was available on Audible and so I decided to listen to it and I am so glad that I did Incredibly thoroughly researched and filled with information it is still a story about people and I found all of them to be complex uniue and realThe Prize came very close to 5 stars however it felt a bit like two separate stories One story involves how people are chosen to win the Nobel Prize and all the history of those prizes The other story is a bit of a mysterythriller about Communists and Nazis and while he embroiled his characters in the mystery and used it to tie their stories together I didn t enjoy this part as much I know that he was writing about propaganda but actually this part of the book just felt like he was writing the propaganda rather than writing about itThe story involves six fictional Nobel Prize winners as well as a huge supporting cast of their relatives and the Swiss people they meet when they are in Stockholm Each character was fully fleshed out and completely vulnerable and flawed And this made them relatable even though most of us will never meet people like them The week unfolds slowly with the author including great detail about the things they do during their week in Stockholm I especially loved the scenes when they were all talking to the press It was so real that it felt like I should be able to find old footage n youtube These conversations exposed things about each of them that they hoped to hide And it uietly exposed some of what goes on behind the scenes I have seen reviewers complain about the historical bits and travelogue bits but I loved them Yes they are lengthy uiet and detailed and I am happy for it There is no other book I can think of that can give me this kind of information But I have discovered that I read for both entertainment and education If you are looking only to be entertained you may find these sections dull and overly longThere is one thing that lingers in my mind today and that is the two uestions I would ask Mr Wallace if he were alive and accessible to me What do you think about the recent metoo scandal on the literary prize academy which resulted in the suspension of the prize in 2018 And how do you react the the fact that only 53 women compared to 866 men have won the prize across all categories
