    I love how Zadie writes a truly captivating story while weaving many different themes such as gender roles, cultural self understanding, philanthropy, discrimination, economic progress and others into the plot.The book constantly leaves you thinking about the wider challenges we face as individuals in our world.

    Incredibly good read, modern characters, very lifelike and with solid psychological profiles The way the story is told, how it jumps from one moment in time to the other is done very smoothly and engaging, there is not a single boring moment.I wish it had 400 pages , it ends too quickly

    So ganz einfach finde ich es nicht, den neuen Roman von Zadie Smith zu bewerten, denn nach dem Lesen der Inhaltsangabe hatte ich mir eine etwas andere Geschichte vorgestellt.Das erste Drittel der Geschichte entwickelt sich recht langsam Die namenlose Ich Erz hlerin w chst zusammen mit ihrer Freundin Tracey in einem rmeren und von sozialen Problemen wie Alkohol, Drogen u

    Unnamed narrator, a brown girl growing up in Brent, gets the dream job working as a general factotum for an international rock star called Aimee who is really Madonna wearing a Kylie mask.The story dips back and forth in our narrator s life There was a friendly childhood rivalry with Tracey who lived fun the flats on the wrong side of the road There was the job working for a

    I ve read all of Zadie Smiths s novels and decided to read Swing Time with some trepidation because, as usual, her works seem to divide reviewers between those who think that she is a literary genius and those who think that she is an overrated luvvie To date I have fallen between the two a great essayist but middle range novelist White Teeth was an impressive but cluttered first n

    Zadie Smith writes interesting books with awkward to like characters I enjoyed the description of london during the childhood of the main characters because I recognised the atmosphere and references from my own I found the connection to Amy irritating because the main character didn t seem to listen, learn or evolve and instead spent the duration of the book treading water working in th

    I had liked one of ZS s previous novels, so I decided to read this one, but I still don t really understand it The narrator doesn t really evolve into a properly developed character, and what is shown of her is not really believable as a real character And most of the other characters are not developed at all, but occupy too much space in the novel As a reader I didn t feel any connection with

  12. Iain61 Iain61 says:

    I really liked this book, which follows a fairly typical 21st century careerist from a difficult adolescence into a job, which she was fortunate to obtain but never seems to really appreciate, working for a Madonna look alike I think that this is why I dropped off one star, which may be irrational The main character was simply too frustrating The author paints a vivid picture of suburban London and

    Zadie Smith is brilliant utterly brilliant Her writing is wry and intelligent Smith can do things with language and style and form that I have yet to see other novelists do She has an ear for dialogue and an eye for scene Swing Time is one of the most visual novels I have read Smith captures aesthetics wonderfully and renders London so vividly in this text.The novel centers around the relationship between
