I have never read anything by John Fowles before and was interested to see what type of short story writer he is.

The Enigma is a modernist short story and revolves around a missing man who is of importance in society - he is a Member of Parliament - he's rich, he's got a stable family, and loves spending time in the countryside. The first paragraph of this story tells us what the most common t As the title itself suggests, The Enigma by John Fowles is a short story that is surrounded by mystery.

The first paragraph of this story tells us what the most common type of person to go missing is and lays the foundations of how abnormal it is for John Fielding to go missing. Throughout the first part of the story, it is written like a case file where we are told the last time that he was seen, where he was supposed to be and the last person to see him. We are also given a list of characters and we as the reader play the game of 'whodunnit' for a few pages. For the second part of the story, we read from the perspective of Mrs Fielding and are thrown into the chaos that she experiences whilst trying to ring everyone who may have had contact with her husband the day he went missing.

Amongst this chaos, we are introduced to a young detective called Jennings, who then becomes the voice for the third and final part of the story. As the investigation into Mr Fielding's disappearance becomes to a dead end, the case is given to Jennings - a young officer who is just starting out in the field.

He is determined to close the case and works on every lead that there is. The Enigma is such an interesting read because we get to experience the missing person case from different perspectives throughout the different stages of a police case. We get to have a feel of a few different characters and this means that we can play our own guessing game.

I found the perspective of Jennings to be very interesting as - coming from a long line of police officers - he felt as if he had something to prove and that this case could be his winning ticket. All is fiction. Somewhere there's someone writing us, we're not real. He or she decides who we are, what we do, all about us.

Jennings is questioning Isobel Dodgson and Fowles - through Isobel - makes a very interesting point of that the detective has to think about the case as a work of fiction in a mystery novel see what Fowles is doing here? Isobel then provides a 'hypothetical' storyline as to what could have happened to Mr.

Whilst you're reading it, it seems as if this 'hypothetical' reason is what actually happened but we are told to think of it as a piece of fiction - a metaphysical world is being created within a fictional world and through that metafictional world, John Fowles is showing us as the reader the conventional ways of a detective story and the detective genre as a whole. As good as the ending was in an 'it-was-well-written' sense, it was also a slight let-down. I felt the ending didn't do the story justice and didn't seem to fulfill me as a reader.

However, it was still an amazing read and I thoroughly recommend it. Shelves: post-modernism , british-literature. Sconsigliato a chi non vuole uscire dal giallo regolamentare stile Agatha Christie.

Trama originale ambientata nella Londra degli anni ' Come molti romanzi postmoderni decostruisce in modo brillante ma non si affanna nel proporre alternative. John Fowles is an excellent writer, a classic traditionalist, but whoever designed this book ensured that his writing was difficult to read. The paragraphs are huge and the book's layout is landscape, ensuring that a footlong ruler has to be used to keep one's eyes from drifting off the text.

As for the content, it 'does what it says on the tin': various theories about the how and why of Stonehenge are discussed, the conclusion being …… an enigma. Libro che all'inizio sembrava promettente, con vari elementi che potevano creare una lettura interessante The story The Enigma in extended pages trying to fin what happened of a person who seemed to dissapear didn't end with some surprising ending. Sometimes people are putting up appearances and you never even get to know how they really feel: "So at the end there's no freedom left.
