I love Zadie Smith ever since I read White Teeth... Her dazzling intelligence, her witty style, her deep understanding of everything human, she is an impressive writer. Still, book after book I am not as seduced as I had been with the initial shock that White Teeth was... This one is sadder and gloomier, but tacles very interesting problematics through 4 very different characters. It is sophisticated and deep. If you love Zadie Smith, you'll love it, if you don't, begin with White Teeth!

Working for Amazon is something of a challenge for a non native speaker like me. I have to squeeze out of my little brain utterances that make sense and sound smart. When reading an e book from Amazon, I start slowing down for fear of having to review what I have just read. Let go the easy way.l love Sadie Smith and I love her book. Sadie is a photographer of everyday life. Quite an achievement when you wield a pen instead of a camera.

Je n'ai aimé ni le style d'écriture cherchant trop le prix littéraire un peu comme les 'choisis du Turner prize'. La belle prose — la prose tout court (à mon avis) est inexistante. Bref, j'ai fini par renoncé, presque à la moitié du livre, après un effort considérable d'y trouver quelque mérite!
