Warlight by Michael OndaatjeWe start with Michael Ondaatje (4/1) who is the bookies’ favourite to win the Booker Prize 2018. Warlight is a work worthy of nomination this year. The novel depicts the childhood memory of London in 1945 after war.

Most certainly, the main reason for Ondaatje’s good odds stems from the fact that he is the only previous winner in the list. His novel, The English Patient, won the Booker Prize 1992 as well as the Golden Booker 2018!

The best online betting sites in the United Kingdom estimate one of the best Booker Prize 2018 odds for Nick Drnaso’s work, Sabrina (5/1).

Sabrina has such a unique concept and message. 2018 Booker Prize Judge Val McDermid said “We all read it and were blown away by it. The graphic novel has increasingly become front and centre in terms of storytelling [and] we felt [Sabrina] does just what good fiction should do.”
