I am always wary about reading a novel that has won multiple prestigious awards, and garnered copious amounts of critical praise. Admittedly, much of this caution is the by-product of my cynicism. All too frequently I harbour suspicions that the awards and praise is the result of bandwagon jumping; that once a handful of influential reviewers have published glowing, rave reviews, numerous other people subsequently feel obliged to do likewise, making everyone else reluctant to be the dissenting voice.
