on beauty

Posted on December 23, 2006. Filed under: Books |

I forgot to mention that I finally finished On Beauty a few weeks ago. I must say that I adored Zadie Smith’s first novel, White Teeth, but couldn’t get into The Autograph Man (there’s still a bookmark in it), and I loved On Beauty for the first half of the book then grew disinterested in the characters. I just haven’t cared as much about them as I did in that premier novel. A few friends have also experienced the same sentiments. Have you read this novel? Did you find it to be the same? Which of hers is your favourite? Mine is definitely White Teeth, hands down.
