A House for Mr. Biswas

Book Review   by:Huiono     Original Author: V.S Naipaul
ª
 
A House for Mr. Biswas was said as the masterpiece of V.S Naipaul that published in 1961. This novel tries to unveil the reality of Trinidad and Tobago's Indian that lived and growth during war time.

This novel is very unique since it was tried to tell how desperated someone who tried to live better without dependent to his family. About a man who want to build his own proud and to be free from tradition engagement. During that times, men are brought to women houses and working for their new family.

Everythings turned wrong when Mr. Biswas, the protagonist, tried to move from his mother's in law house. He end up with more suffering. Many times he fall into fights with other members in the house.

Mr. Biswas was inspired from V.S Naipaul's father as a traditional Indian. A man that tried to find his own freedom and identity.

In 2001, V. S Naipaul won the Nobel Prize in Literature. That's makes him a high calibrate novelist.
