Just finished Bernardine Evaristo's Girl, Woman, Other (this year's winner) — absolutely loved it. Loved the concept of the book with each chapter being three short stories about three interconnected women, plus another overall thread that links all the chapters together. Truly deserved win. I actually met Bernardine at a literary festival a few months ago and she is such a lovely and approachable person.

Personally I feel that they only gave the prize to Margaret Atwood as well because of her overall body of work instead of being judged purely on The Testaments. The Handmaid's Tale is a brilliant, thought-provoking book but for me The Testaments was just ok. Purely based on this book, I don't feel she should have won.
