This book looks at the members of three interconnected families, from the fathers' experiences in World War II to the children's feelings about their place in the coming millennium.

First off, it took me more than a year to read this book. I was determined to finish it, but that timeline gives you a sense of how I felt about it.

Much of the book felt dated, as it was so firmly grounded in its mid to late 1990s fear of the approaching millennium and what new frontiers were being made in science (DNA mapping, cloning, etc.). Science and religion butt heads in this book, yet it never feels like Smith is making a point about either as both has proponents who are ridiculous in their own way. Likewise, race and colonialism are oft-mentioned but never really with any kind of conclusion beyond an observation that they exist.

Basically all of the characters are unlikable; Irie and to a lesser extent Joshua are the only ones I ever felt some interest in their happenings. Every single character seems to have the same voice (minus the dialect for dialogue) as an ever-present narrator carries the tone. I'm not sure that Smith really has the best grasp on tackling the cultures she portrays when it comes to the Iqbal family and their associates (primarily all Muslim and mostly Bangladeshi).

After plodding through pages and pages of essentially nothing occurring, Smith starts drumming up tension for a big happening on New Year's Eve. And yet that fizzles out to nothing and she leaves the reader with a quick page or two summary of the remainder of these characters' lives. In the end, this book felt like a lot of "work" for me with no payoff. ( )

Despite that this was the sort of sprawling family saga that I usually dislike, it was breezy and lighthearted, which made it much more enjoyable for me, even as it broached some serious themes, including “the immigrant experience,” self-identity, privilege and poverty, science vs religion. Mostly, though, I felt that it was a rather light-hearted romp, full of characters who were presented in a way that made me feel affectionate towards them even though, objectively, some of them should have been quite dislikable. It struck me as sprawling and messy, but that’s how life is. ( )

This book needed a better editor! The story was good, but it all went on way too long, and the end was silly. I listened to it on tape rather than reading it, I don't know if that influenced me, but I just got tired about 2/3 of the way through and actually thought about quitting it. ( )

White Teeth by Zadie Smith (2000) ( )
  arosoff | Jul 10, 2021 |
A novel is a lot of things, but interpreted philosophically, “White Teeth” is a rebuttal to the idea that Europe is being invaded by unwholesome immigrants and that white men are doomed. That the one group is called KEVIN is perfect, and I don’t think it’s naive; it’s just that they’re kids, just stupid kids who make mistakes and feel alienated from people. Kids are always getting on the news…. The way religion is presented—and juxtaposed—is really beautiful, and I think that the ending is especially beautiful, especially for a book with a such a meandering, quotidian plot….

We all have white teeth.

Early in the morning, late in the century, Cricklewood Broadway. At 06.27 hours on 1 January 1975, Alfred Archibald Jones was dressed in corduroy and sat in a fume-filled Cavalier Musketeer Estate face down on the steering wheel, hoping the judgment would not be too heavy upon him.
