White Teeth
White Teeth | Zadie Smith
Zadie Smiths dazzling debut caught critics grasping for comparisons and deciding on everyone from Charles Dickens to Salman Rushdie to John Irving and Martin Amis. But the truth is that Zadie Smiths voice is remarkably, fluently, and altogether wonderfully her own.At the center of this invigorating novel are two unlikely friends, Archie Jones and Samad Iqbal. Hapless veterans of World War II, Archie and Samad and their families become agents of Englands irrevocable transformation. A second marriage to Clara Bowden, a beautiful, albeit tooth-challenged, Jamaican half his age, quite literally gives Archie a second lease on life, and produces Irie, a knowing child whose personality doesnt quite match her name (Jamaican for no problem). Samads late-in-life arranged marriage (he had to wait for his bride to be born), produces twin sons whose separate paths confound Iqbals every effort to direct them, and a renewed, if selective, submission to his Islamic faith. Set against Londons racial and cultural tapestry, venturing across the former empire and into the past as it barrels toward the future, White Teeth revels in the ecstatic hodgepodge of modern life, flirting with disaster, confounding expectations, and embracing the comedy of daily existence.From the Trade Paperback edition.

I actually didn‘t finish. I can‘t tell you the last time this happened for me. But I tried this despite some of the negative reviews. For me, it wasn‘t the writing style (that was brilliant), or even the characters themselves
(Life isn‘t always super interesting & novel), it was the laissez-faire attitude and lewdness to some imo gross stuff. Left me feeling icky. Couldn‘t do it. 😣

This is one of the funniest books I‘ve read in a long time. I read NW several years ago and I liked it but I wasn‘t thrilled. This one‘s been on my shelf for years. I‘m so glad I finally read it. I absolutely loved it!

It's impressive how an author in her 20s was able to create such an overwhelmingly rich universe populated with realistic and complex characters, and juggle in a satirical tone, with sensitive subjects such as immigration, religion, social identity, historical heritage and values. The apparently boring bits all played a role in the overall puzzle. The surprising end reconfirms the talent with which these multi-layered characters were painted.

Not sure about it. It's sassy and reminds me of part Catcher in the Rye and part Ed Abbey. It is centered around a couple of friends, Archie, who marries a woman from Jamaica and Samad, a Bengali, now in London, each of whom were war buddies in WW 2, and their families. Samad's twins represent extremes of Islam. Archie's daughter, Irie, could show how author feels about being mixed race. Bad language and vulgarity. If you like Rushdie ...

It felt like a chore. I had to make myself finish it because I really wanted to give Zadie Smith a solid chance. Just incredibly unlikeable characters and irreverent sentiments toward all religion and faith. I'm still going to read a nonfiction, but I won't proceed to another fiction of hers. I also think this could be considered fake diversity because one of the main families is Muslim immigrants from Bangladesh.

Tamra I bailed, but it‘s been so long that I don‘t recall why. Clearly it didn‘t work well enough to capture my intellect or heart. 2y

Ugh.

I wanted to like this. I really did. And I typically don't finish books I don't like, but I really wanted to get through this for #Authoramonth & #NYPL #LoveReading. I find it so hard to like a book when I don't like *any* of the characters. I think that Zadie Smith just isn't for me. 😔

Reading this one for #Authoramonth - thus far, I'm not *loving* it, but I appreciate why this is deemed an "important" book. However, I just met the Chalfens, and I kinda love them. There's also kind of horrible, but the pageants are making me laugh. ☺ Glad to be expanding my reading! @Soubhiville

A long, somewhat difficult book, with lots of interwoven threads and characters. I actually put this book down a while back, and almost DNF‘d it. But I made it through. If you like wide, multi-generational stories with complex themes and hit-you-on-the-head symbolism this might be up your alley.

Wow! Totally get the hype! So amazing. It started slow and definitely meandered a bit slowly through time, countries and generations but the careful study of family connection & what makes us human made it all worth the wait. And the surprising last few chapters? Talk about ending with a bang! While I own this in paperback, I listened on audio and it was fantastic. #MountTBR #BookspinBingo #authoramonth @Soubhiville @TheAromaofBooks

The story about two multiracial families in modern Britain is very dynamic in structure and language, it also has quite a few comic/satirical elements, which makes an otherwise difficult story easier at first glance. Some parts are enjoyable to read, but some parts are almost boring. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #AuthorAMonth #BookSpin

This was my first time reading Zadie Smith. While I enjoyed her writing style, the story was an okay read for me. About halfway through, the characters were beginning to get on my nerves. Despite not connecting with the overall story or characters, I‘m still open to trying other Smith works. #AuthorAMonth

Can‘t do it. This is the second try. I‘ve made it a quarter of the way, trying to understand why she needed to tell these stories, why they needed to be published with such fanfare. Moving on. I‘ll try another for #AuthoraMonth but first off to some light fantasy pump some feeling back into my person. So disappointing...

This is a bright and evocative story of immigrant's post colonial experiences in the UK as they try to carve out an identity in a suspicious and scrutinizing world. It‘s cocky. It‘s also quite funny in places. It has edge and heart. You will not sit and binge read it, because it‘s prose is beautiful... but too heavy for long sessions. But you will be back, because you will want to see the world through that lens again and again.

So impressed that a 20 year old wrote this. The writing is confident, funny, and philosophical. The characters, while cartoonish in some ways, have a lot of layers. She tackles the idea of shared histories, immigration, heritage, identity, fate, scientific innovation. That said, there were parts I loved and other parts that I had to make myself read on because it felt jumbled and I didn't really like the characters. Between a pick and a so-so.
