As the week of Nobel Prize announcements wraps up, many are surprised to see that the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature went to the Peruvian novelist, journalist and politician Mario Vargas Llosa.

It was a surprise to some, since the expected winners were the candidates from South Korea, Kenya and the United States.

Llosa is an extremely political writer and is known for his political involvement, his novels do include historical works, political thrillers, comedies and murder mysteries.

The Academy honors the 74-year-old author for what it called "his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual's resistance, revolt and defeat."

Llosa was very happy and proud to receive this award. Now we just have to wait until tomorrow to find out who won the Peace prize.

    Nobel Prize isn't what it used to be since Obama won one. Might as well be a smiley face sticker at the dentist office.
