Ladbrokes, one of the U.K.`s largest books, is always watched in the season when the winner of the Nobel Prize in literature is announced. This is due to its selecting a highly likely candidate and computes the odds, and its predictions have been highly accurate.
In particular, it was talked about by accurately predicting Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk in 2006 and thereafter has always been close to getting the winner. The Swedish poet Tomas Transtromer in 2011, Chinese writer Mo Yan in 2012 and Canadian author Alice Munro in 2013 were all second most likely winners cited by Ladbrokes.
Kenyan writer Ngugi wa Thiong`o and Japanese author Haruki Murakami are four to one (the lower the odds the higher the likelihood) this year. Korean poet Ko Un has been mentioned as joint 16th, down from last year when he ranked seventh.
