From the Publisher: On New Year's morning, 1975, Archie Jones sits in his car on a London road and waits for the exhaust fumes to fill his Cavalier Musketeer station wagon. Archie-working-class, ordinary, a failed marriage under his belt-is calling it quits, the deciding factor being the flip of a 20-pence coin. When the owner of a nearby halal butcher shop (annoyed that Archie's car is blocking his delivery area) comes out and bangs on the window, he gives Archie another chance at life and sets in motion this richly imagined, uproariously funny novel. Epic and intimate, hilarious and poignant, White Teeth is the story of two North London families-one headed by Archie, the other by Archie's best friend, a Muslim Bengali named Samad Iqbal. Pals since they served together in World War II, Archie and Samad are a decidedly unlikely pair. Plodding Archie is typical in every way until he marries Clara, a beautiful, toothless Jamaican woman half his age, and the couple have a daughter named Irie (the Jamaican word for "no problem"). Samad-devoutly Muslim, hopelessly "foreign"-weds the feisty and always suspicious Alsana in a prearranged union. They have twin sons named Millat and Magid, one a pot-smoking punk-cum-militant Muslim and the other an insufferable science nerd. The riotous and tortured histories of the Joneses and the Iqbals are fundamentally intertwined, capturing an empire's worth of cultural identity, history, and hope. Zadie Smith's dazzling first novel plays out its bounding, vibrant course in a Jamaican hair salon in North London, an Indian restaurant in Leicester Square, an Irish poolroom turned immigrant cafe, a liberal public school, a sleek science institute. A winning debut in every respect, White Teeth marks the arrival of a wondrously talented writer who takes on the big themes-faith, race, gender, history, and culture-and triumphs.… (mais)

I have heard nothing but praise for this book and was excited to read it. It didn't draw me in as expected. I found it hard to really care about any of the characters, and my reading went very sloooowly. ( )

A great story, well written and very readable, that creates an atmosphere you can almost touch. There is a marvellous array of characters, but it is the author’s treatment of almost all of them that makes this book, for me, 4 rather than 5 stars. She treats all but one with a huge dose of contempt and a lot of sarcasm. They are caricatures; type-casts with few redeeming features. Still, 4 stars for me is still enjoyable and I”m glad I read it. ( )

There is just so much to unpack in this novel. Smith really gives readers a lot to think about. The ending is one that I simultaneous like and dislike, but maybe as I think on the book more I'll have a more decisive feeling about it later.

One thing I found interesting about many of the characters is that while they seemed very plausible and realistic, they sometimes came very close to toeing the line between realistic and becoming caricatures - though Smith never crossed this line in her writing and I feel that having her characters come off this way was very deliberate.

There were just so many lines in this book that really made me stop to think and/or were just beautiful prose. Remembering that this is her debut novels makes me very excited to read more of her books in the future.

Content Warnings: racism, mentioning animal experimentation, fatphobia ( )

This book is a mix of races, religions and ages. It follows two families. The men were in a war together. They marry and have kids. The kids then grow up with their issues. You get everyone's thoughts on things as time passes. It honestly took me a good while to get into the story. I did end up liking it. I'm not sure if there was an overall message, but most everyone in the book was a somewhat new perspective from many of the books that I've read. ( )

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.
