Naipaul a disappointment,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A House For Mr Biswas (Paperback)
This was my first Naipaul and I was very disappointed. Like other reviewers, I failed to detect the humour- indeed, I found the book very depressing (I had difficulty forcing myself to finish it). Mr. Biswas has no depth or reality; nor does his wife or the horde of in-laws. I thought this was a rambling, overlong piece of self-indulgence.
