Home Monica Ali Brick Lane. She closed the book and looked around the room to check it was tidy enough. Chanu's books and papers were stacked beneath the table. They would have to be moved or Dr Azad would not be able to get his feet in. The rugs, which she had held out of the window earlier and beaten with a wooden spoon, needed to be put down again.

In 2003, she was selected as one of the "Best of Young British Novelists" by Granta magazine based on her unpublished manuscript; her debut novel, Brick Lane, was published later that year. It was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. It was adapted as a 2007 film of the same name. She has also published three other novels.

A book you won’t be able to put down. Monica Ali’s splendid novel is about journeys both external and internal, where the marvelous and the terrifying spiral together. A Bangladeshi immigrant in London is torn between the kind, tedious older husband with whom she has an arranged marriage (and children) and the fiery political activist she lusts after. A novel that’s multi-continental, richly detailed and elegantly crafted. Read on the Scribd mobile app. Download the free Scribd mobile app to read anytime, anywhere.

Natasha Walter finds that Monica Ali's fêted first novel, Brick Lane, lives up to its hype. She has a slow-burn style, a winning way of exploring how the contradictions of life gradually build and knit together into experience. Nazneen is not a finished person when she arrives in London as a bride for Chanu, and so it makes sense that Ali's prose style is, until that point, rather naive.

Brick Lane is a four dimensional book I think Monica Ali wrote a great novel. Being in Nazneen’s head is not for everyone as she can be annoying when you look at her with your Western eyes.

Brick Lane is a four dimensional book. The first dimension is the slow opening of Nazneen’s mind to her right to individuality. The second dimension is Chanu’s personal journey. I think Monica Ali wrote a great novel. I tried to detach myself from my cultural background to see things through her eyes.

Found the book confusing in the beginning. Took a while to get into the book. An interesting view into the world of woman immigrants making the transfer from "old " and accepted ways to life as a new new immigrant in England. Woman who had to find courage to find themselves.

While this novel tells the tale of a young woman from Bangaladesh brought to London through an arranged marriage, at some level it could be a story of any woman. Monica Ali's poignant selection of events in the life of the featured character as compared to the story of her sister who continues to live in Bangladesh, could be seen as a commentary on the potentially suffocating life of an Islamic woman in an arranged marriage. But instead, both the featured character's and her sister's transformation through the years of learning to live with a marriage partner and raising young children, into confident, self-aware, mature women has a universal quality. A side benefit in this novel is the introspective description of life in Brick Lane, a street in London known to London residents and tourists for its Indian restaurants.

This Booker Prize-nominated novel provides engaging characters and thought-provoking insight into the Muslim immigrant world.
The main character, Nazneen, is a young "unspoiled" Bangladeshi village girl who enters into an arranged marriage with a much older Bangladeshi who lives in London. Her beautiful sister defies her father's wishes and elopes in a love match, running off to Dakha. Nazneen has been raised to accept whatever happens to her, but in London, gradually (over the course of 15 years or so) begins to take control of her own life.
Her husband Chanu at first seems clownlike, for example, he frames a collection of meaningless certificates for very minor achievements. Chanu regards himself as a scholar, because he has a BA from a Bangladeshi university, but he realizes that in Britain, he is regarded as nobody of any importance). Nazneen is expected to trim his corns every night, and later, his daughters are expected to sit beside him as he reads to turn the pages for him. But Chanu is a complex person who has a good heart, and the reader develops a fondness for this would-be patriarch. Life has not turned out as he wanted or expected, but he is devoted to his family.
Nazneen, on the other hand, had no expectations of life but has been swept along like a piece of wood in a river. Her transformation -- how to combine the traditional values and reject what is problematic in the western world while recognizing what is bad about the old ways and changing -- forms the plot of the book.
In the background is her sister's story, told in letters; the sister, who was more proactive in her choices, suffers the consequences, and it's hard to avoid wondering if the sister would not have been better off in an arranged marriage. The reader is left pondering Western vs. non-Western values, particularly with regard to love and marriage.
Like other reviewers, I found the use of broken English in her sister's letters baffling and annoying -- fortunately they were a comparatively small part of the book. If her sister was writing in Bengali, wouldn't it be grammatical at least? And why would her sister write in English (which would explain the bad grammar)?
The author has done a great job of creating a very different world for the reader to inhabit. Life for Muslim women both in a council estate (public housing project) in London (Nazneen's story) and a large city in Bangladesh (her sister's story) are described vividly and without romantic illusions.
This is not a quickly read book, but it certainly held my interest all the way through, and I will remember these characters for a long time.

Very Old Chap
Interesting read, if you can figure it out. It jumps back and forth without really letting you know where you are at until you read a few lines and can put it all together in your head. I never really understood why the story was going in the direction it was and it was never explained. It is the type of book you just can't easily read through and enjoy. Too much having to think and try to figure it out. If that is what you like this is the book for you. If you just want to read to relax pass this one by.

I read this book freshman or sophomore year in college, and I remember that while I didn't always understand what the plot was detailing (blame my lack of historical knowledge), I did always root for the main character to come into her own and find her independence and sense of self. The characters, both male and female, that she comes into contact with are memorable, from her husband to the elderly userer to the young activist. It's a great story to give you some insight on another woman's struggle in a different culture and a different land in our time

I was inspired to read Monica Ali's debut novel Brick Lane, about Bangladeshis in London by my recent trip to Dhaka. It is an interesting novel that explores identity and the women's role in a society that still practices arranged marriages. It has come under attack for portraying some Bengalis as uneducated and backward. It reminds me of the Jhumpa Lahiri books, except instead of middle class academics what we have here is the tenement dwelling underclass in London.

Well written book. It was assigned for reading in my class. I probably didn't have to read the whole thing, but it was quite interesting.

I wanted to like this book but just couldn't. It seemed to take forever to get where it was going and even at the end I had to question
what so many pages had achieved.
