Book Review: NW (Incomplete)


Untitled (Zadie with chipped nails)

NW, Zadie Smith

I did not finish NW. I did, however, follow the Rule of 50 and gave it my best shot before putting it down. After White Teeth and On Beauty I was surprised at how much I struggled with this novel. I found the characters hard to follow and uninteresting, the sentence structure jarring and distracting. Even the way Smith writes dialogue in this book was off putting. Perhaps someone with my fortitude than I have can give it a try.


One thought on “Book Review: NW (Incomplete)

  1. True Confessions: I do not like Zadie Smith. I think she’s a very talented writer, blah, blah, blah, but I just don’t CARE when I read her books.
