Outstanding
Earlier this year, I read "White teeth" by the same author. I am not sure why, but the book had been sitting on my nightstand for years - literally. When I finally got to it, it was a complete revelation. Zadie Smith struck me as an incredibly talented story teller, with the ability of giving a voice to incredibly well-crafted characters that come alive page after page. Truth is, when I read a book that good, I am always scared of reading another book by the same author. The bar is set pretty high at that point, and possible delusion is magnified. Well, it was such a great pleasure that Smith's 2013 novel is such a great, brilliant, outstanding work. Read it!
