The NZ Listener published a list of its 100 best books of 2010 and a brief synopsis of each.  I was going to list the novels here minus the NZ ones, then thought it was just as easy and more comprehensive to point you to the article.  http://www.listener.co.nz/issue/3683/artsbooks/16645/the_100_best_books_of_2010.html;jsessionid=099C5F186861D884CBF2E5DBFAAD0C04

The one thing that took my eye was the comment that they had included C by Tom McCarthy "in protest tht it was beaten to the Man Booker Prize by the stale comedy of Howard Jacobson's The Finkler Question".  And indeed the Finkler Question is not in this list, though I thought it sounded well worth a read from me at least.  Have any of you read it and what did you think of it?  Or of any of these books listed here?

Cheers, Caro.
