Orange Prize Winner

I am informed, via text message, that the winner of this year’s Orange Prize is …

Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

My reaction: eh. Of the four shortlisted books that I read, it was the one I liked least by some margin.

EDIT: According to The Guardian, “The two shortlisted titles believed to have come closest to beating Half of a Yellow Sun are The Inheritance of Loss and the Chinese author Xiaolu Guo’s tender romantic comedy A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers.” So at least my favourite was in the running.
