    White Teeth is an expansive detailed and beautifully written attempt to encapsulate the social chaos that blossoms at the bridging of generational national and sexual mindsets It reminds me very much of the freeflowing histories written by Maruez and Allende as well as Salman Rushdie's strange little one off treatise on cultural alienation Fury Samad in particular reminds me uite a bit of Fury's Malik Solank

    One star? Of course this is not a one star wretched ignominous failure this is a mighty Dickensian epic about modern Britain But not for me It's a uestion of tone I have now tried to read this one twice and each time I find I'm groaning uietly and grinding my teeth Zadie Smith's omniscient narrator alas for me has an air of horri

    The last time I read a book with this much narrative confidence power and authority was back in January when I tackled Midnight’s Children It's rare that a book comes with a voice this strong Like Rushdie’s novel Smith creates a present that is pervaded by the past Her characters are very aware of their ancestry and

    Just because everyone says it's good doesn't make it readable Just because it has an 'ethnic' plot doesn't make it realistic Just because it's about ordinary people doesn't make it believeable And just because I read it only a couple of months ago doesn't make it memorable Three stars because it might have been that good I've forgotten all but the general gist of the book
