Enigma of Arrival 2.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.
Jeanne-Marie More than 1 year ago
Enigma is a novel that requires time, attention, and multiple readings to be fully appreciated, but the effort is well worth the reward. In this complicated metafiction Naipaul only hints at the identity of the narrator, making the experiences and emotions less personal and more universal. The recurring references to literature and the writing process transform the ideas of change, death, sight, family, and identity into relatable and tangible concepts. This is not light reading, but it is enlightening reading.
