[books] Booker Prize 2004

The long list has been announced. Apparently Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell is the odds-on favorite to win this year. I'm not too sure where the "odds" come from, though. Is there a smokey room full of bookies booking bets on the best book to win the Booker? I'd like to think so. BUT... I'm putting my money on Johnathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, even though it's not out yet and I haven't read it. I just hear it's awesome.
