Archie's life has disintegrated. Fresh from a dead marriage, middle-aged Archie stretches out a vacuum hose, seals up his car and prepares to die. But unbeknownst to him, his darkest hour is also his luckiest day. With the opening of a butcher's shop, his life is saved, and soon he is on his way to beginning a new life with a young Jamaican woman looking for the last man on earth.

Drawing you in with the immediacy of her tantalizing wit, Zadie Smith sets herself apart as a defining voice of contemporary literature. Her internationally acclaimed novel boldly and humorously bridges three London families across a cultural and generational divide. Download and start listening now!

    " Spans space and time even more than "On Beauty". More accessible, but it is apparent that this was her first book. She is prone in this book (but not later works) to parenthetical expository remarks that are totally necessary, and seem to be her way of saying 'look how clever I am!'. "

    " Wonderful story about 2 men in England, Archie, white, working class and Samad, Bengali, also middle class, in North London. How they meet, become friends and raise their families is a complex story, filled with humor and cultural quirkiness. Could not put it down. "

    " This book has a beautiful story line and well developed characters. The problem is, the book is over written. Zadie Smith is without a doubt quite talented, but White Teeth illustrates that she is obsessed with the clicking sound that her keys make on her computer. At 448 pages, White Teeth is not the longest book I've ever read, but it is the only book that I have ever experienced that is beautiful, but packed with non essential information. A example: if Smith wrote, "The cat walked across the street." She is going to give you a history of the word the, the entire life of the cat, a full description of the walk and the entire history of the street. Apparently she feels that you have to understand all of that in order to find out why the cat went across the street. Again, I must stress, the story line is beautiful. The characters are hilarious and I fell in love with them. It was the writer that irritated me all the way to the end. I still would recommend it to a friend or fellow read-only if they have tons of time on their hands. "

    " I went back and forth with White Teeth, but ultimately I enjoyed it. I initially had a problem because it seemed very much like one of those literary "terrible things happen to boring people" kinds of books, and I'm generally not interested in that type of thing. As the magical realism built and the characterization became stronger, however, I came to appreciate Zadie Smith's voice and style much more. It's an exceptionally competent first novel, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of her books now. "
