Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of White Teeth by Zadie Smith, read by Lenny Henry, Sagar Arya, Pippa Bennett-Warner and Ray Panthaki.
Zadie Smith's White Teeth is a classic international best seller and an unforgettable portrait of London.
One of the most talked about fictional debuts ever, White Teeth is a funny, generous, big-hearted novel, adored by critics and readers alike. Dealing - among many other things - with friendship, love, war, three cultures and three families over three generations, one brown mouse, and the tricky way the past has of coming back and biting you on the ankle, it is a life-affirming, riotous must-listen.

Spoilt by uneven narration

This is a great story but not a great audiobook. There doesn't seem to be any logic to having four different narrators and two of them are awful. Lenny Henry starts off brilliantly, only to be succeeded by Sagar Arya who gives every character the same voice and accent. Pippa Bennet-Warner retrieves things a little (although she's not as good as Lenny) but the final section is given to Ray Panthaki who completely murders the denouement of the novel. He puts emphasis in the wrong places and clearly is often just reading out the words with no idea of what the sentence means. Don't they have producers for these things?

Too long and rambling

I listened to the end but, some bits were just too rambling and boring. I stuck it out but won’t want to listen again.
