Feel Free by Zadie Smith

**I kindly received a copy from the publishers in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinions of the book.**

Feel Free, a collection of essays, is Zadie Smith's latest offering. This essay collection is split into five chapters: In the World, In the Audience, In the Gallery, On the Bookshelf and Feel Free. I'll just get to the point, if you love Zadie Smith and her style of writing you'll love this collection. There are essays on global warming, libraries, Brexit and quite a good interview I will admit with Jay Z. 

But those of us who find her writing too literary and flouncy and never really getting to the point, well this collection is no different. Throw in the fact that it's non-fiction, there was no real reason for me to finish the book  and I was left quite uninspired and frankly bored. Some of her essays are quite interesting and again if you love her sort of social commentary, this would be right up your street. But most of the most essays for me were pretty obvious social observations , nothing particularly remarkable and a really annoying way of saying the simplest of things.
