So this is a best-selling novel by Zadie Smith. It’s critically-acclaimed and won a bunch of awards. I didn’t like it. The characters were too foreign to me and they stayed that way. In order for me to get hooked on a book, there needs to be something about it that makes me want more. It could be the plot, or the character development, or the general humanness that we share. But the entire time I felt like an outsider looking into a fish bowl, not knowing where this was going. For that, I’m sorry to say that I wouldn’t recommend it to others.
My rating: 2/5 stars
