I'm glad Ian McEwan won - I really liked that book.

I noticed Penny Vincenzi on one of the shortlists. Why on earth hasn't that women ever won anything for her fantastically addictive novels?? I'm a big fan!

Well, at least Jordan/Katie Price didn't win an award. I can't believe she was even nominated!
