Book: On beauty

Author: Zadie Smith

Details: (c) Zadie Smith 2005; Pub Penguin 2006; ISBN 0-141-01945-X

Verdict: On Beauty is an excellent read, with particularly strong characterization.

Reasons for reading it: I absolutely adored White teeth. Autograph man didn't live up to Smith's stunning debut, but it certainly wasn't bad except by comparison, so I was very willing to give Smith another try. And her latest novel got a lot of good buzz when it was published, so I put it on my to-read list.

How it came into my hands: Brighton charity shops.
