Booker Prize 2022 Longlist Stack Landscape

Each month, in the Telegraph's readers' book review series, we will ask our readers to choose a theme or book in our Telegraph Book Club Facebook group – from popular book events to bestseller fiction – and then submit their reviews.

This month, our readers voted to review the Booker Prize 2022 longlist, which was announced on July 26. With thousands of novels published each year, the Booker Prize has become a trusted kitemark of quality fiction, pointing readers towards the best of the best. This year's longlist features three debuts, the shortest book as well as the youngest and oldest authors ever to be nominated.

Fill in the form below to state your choice, and tell us what you liked or disliked about the book, what ideas and moments stood out for you and whether you think book prizes are necessary anymore? Don’t forget to give your star rating out of 5. We will publish a selection of the best responses in a Telegraph article.

To have your say on next month’s topic, come and join us at the Telegraph Book Club to cast your vote. You can also get involved with our monthly book club virtual event.
