The Raw Shark Texts

The Raw Shark Texts - Steven Hall

I’m not entirely sure what to say about this one other than that I firmly believe that the world needs books about conceptual sharks. They are a clear and present danger to our well-being, and the lack of government attention to this urgent problem is nothing less than shameful.

Also, of all the Clarke nominees I have read, this one is my favorite. The jury, of course, may disagree, but I do hope that it wins (and that Steven Hall gets to write his Doctor Who episode). A big “hurrah” for Canongate for publishing such an adventurous book.
