Just finished White Teeth.
Such a good book. Why have I neglected Zadie for so long? Anyone else a fan of her writing?
>>
It's a shit-tier DFW knock-off. It's 500 pages of trying to prove that you're clever. It's a needy, "clever" novel intended to make you feel both stupid and clever simultaneously despite being neither. Don't bother replying to this post. Sage. Hidden.

shes cute

This guy replies to every book the same way. Nice pasta though.
>>

But that's true about White Teeth. It's try-hard at being clever, and it isn't. It's a failed cultural novel.
>>
>>7648469
You didn't sage though.

I didn't like NW but I'm reading "On beauty" and it's good, genuinely fun at times and entertaining almost all the time. Her writing is not outstanding but sometimes she surprise me with very good insights of her characters.

So read On beauty if you are already a fan.

Wait until you get to Howard at the glee club banquet scene. Fucking hilarious. I still laugh thinking about that.

>>7648520
What makes it try hard at being clever? I didn't feel that way at all.
>>
>>7648463
She just barely skirts that female tendency to write boring family sagas by writing a cool family saga. That's not a strike against her at all, but I was always ready for shit to get boring when I read White Teeth, and it never did.

10/10 novel.

>>7648469
No
>>
>>7649080
Haha. Strange appraisal. I can't tell how serious you're being
>>
White Teeth really is a good book. Strange that her debut novel is her masterpiece.

It's one of those books where I felt myself becoming a little better of a person while I was reading it
>>
>>7649126
I mean, I didn't rate it 10/10 just for not boring me. It's legitimately good. It was just my experience while reading it that I expected it to slow down and become a soap opera but it kept rolling.
>>
>>7649171
Disgusting.
>>
isn't zadie smith mom-core? why are you plebs talking about her?
>>
>>7649738
Because Madame Zumbaba the Dreamweaver was in that one photo with DFW.
>>
She's audience pussy and nothing more
>>
did the dave do her?
>>
Why is she making that face
>>
>>7649823
They spend a lot of time together so it's somewhat likely
