What is the best book of the 2000s and why is it this one?

Because it was published in 2010. And because it is shit.

I can just tell that this is a book by a middle-aged British female, possibly from a journalistic background, who writes sentimental pseudo-biogs about sedate and emotionally numb women or precoscious, "strangely beautiful" girls

The cover itself makes me Broom.jpg while looking around my room for people who share my distaste for this dross

That's not what it's about. It's about a little boy born inside a Fritzl style dungeon, whose entire comprehension of the universe consists of that one room in which he is locked inside together with his mother, and shit he sees on tv.

It's pretty shit though.

I enjoyed Room, but I wouldn't call that the best by any means. Also it came out in 2010, so...

Nah, it was actually really good. Probably the best of this century so far.

Submarine by Joe Dunthorne, reads like a contemporary Holden Caulfield except actually smart and interesting and not a complete asshole.
