Orange prize 2012

So, Madeline Miller has won the Orange Prize 2012 with Song of Achilles.

I must say, I am a bit disappointed. I have read all the books on the longlist and I left this book half way through-I just got a bit bored.
Painter of Silence by Georgina Harding, Foreign Bodies by Cynthia Ozick, State of Wonder by Ann Patchett,  There but for the by Ali Smith and The Submission by Amy Waldman would have made my shortlist and I can recommend them all as good reads.
