2015 Tournament of Books: Day 4


Have you been following along with the Tournament of Books proceedings? Today’s matchup pits The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters against A Brave Man Seven Storeys Tall by Will Chancellor.

Having read neither of these books yet, I was interested to see the descriptions of each and the commentary on why the winner was ultimately selected. I love that you can read comments from the overall “judge” and then commentary from two other reviewers – and I love this whole system of turning books into sport!

Tomorrow’s event has Dept. of Speculation squaring off against Annihilation. And if you didn’t see my post yesterday, Powell’s is offering 30% off the 2015 ToB selections for a limited time!

[Spoiler alert – stop reading if you don’t want to know who’s won each day.]

If you haven’t been following along, here’s a list of the winners so far:

Day 1 – The Bone Clocks
Day 2 – A Brief History of Seven Killings
Day 3 – All The Light We Cannot See
Day 4 – The Paying Guests
