    I'm not sure how to put my feelings about this book into words,

    I'm not sure how to put my feelings about this book into words, but I'll try. This is not a fun novel. This is not a nice novel. This is a vicerally powerful and profoundly disturbing novel. The tension begins to build with the very first word, and doesn't let up until the very last. Naipaul is a master of creating atmosphere. You physically feel the tension in the interplay between characters, and the hysteria bubbling away just below the surface makes your heart beat faster. This is not a novel about guerrillas, freedom fighters, or the right to self-rule. It is a novel about power; those who have it, those who want it, those who take it. Through the damaged characters who populate this novel we see the power struggles played out on a petty scale, while in the background they are echoed in grander style. This is a novel told on two different levels; each character is distinctly human, and yet each character is a metaphor for an aspect of the post-colonial world. Through their interactions with each other a disturbing personal drama is played out, and at the same time this drama reveals to us the struggles of a former colony trying to find its way is a new era. That Naipaul can tell both these stories so seamlessly in a single narrative is amazing.
