Steve Clackson also wrote in:

My favorite book this year.

  • Three Day Road by Joseph Boydencomments

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer and The Ox-Bow Incident by Walter Van Tilburg Clark. Ishiguro’s Remains of the Day is a close third.

And finally, Sandra Scoppettone’s list:

Thanks everyone!
