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.
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.
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.
She is always on the verge of crying. Probably over the death of her beloved David
