A modern classic

Really impressed by this modern classic,fourth novel published by VS Naipaul, Indo-Trinidadian Nobel winner, in early 1960s. Basically this novel is auto-biographical and delineation of his father's character and financial travails is very touching.Mr Biswas's life-long pursuit for a house of his own gives an epic touch to the story. The novel is a fine study of Indian migrant society in Caribbean in all its nuances.

Such a jolt of reality!

A Very good read: its funny, crazy, pathetic and so mixed up and Real! I was disgusted with the characters, then laughed at them and then understood them as real people. I saw myself doing some things like them and admired some things they did and was confused about what I would do( God forbid) if faced with similar dilemmas.Definitely will read all the other books by Naipaul now.
