I think this is one that will stay with me for a long time. I tried to write an actual review, but I'm struggling to put how I feel afterwards into words. I would, however, recommend this to absolutely anybody. There is wisdom and compassion and rage and a sense of lucid detachment that ma...Read More

Aftermath of freedom
Jan 16, 2016 09:24 AM Read
In keeping with Naipaul's schizophrenic relationship with colonialism, he is at his condescending best in this only Booker-winning work of his. The original novel was a loosely-bunched-together collection of three short stories, but the edition I read contained just one, the main story at the en...Read More

There are three novellas with a very short piece at the beginning and end. The focus is on being in a foreign/strange land. The longest novella deals with Africa at the end of empire; two white colonials travelling across an African state(possibly Uganda) at a time of change. It highlights their...Read More

In a Free State is one of the best works of fiction I have read that deals with the subject of cultural incomprehensibility and the broken symmetry of colonial relationships. Naipaul's use of multiple stories helps him present a more balanced perspective than a straightforward novel would have a...Read More

I must confess that I do not not enjoy reading V.S. Naipaul. I find his fiction overly pessimistic and bitter, his characters unappealing, passive victims whose lives seem exercises in futility. In a sense, like Joseph Conrad, he explores the backwaters of colonialism ( or post-colonialism in Na...Read More
