Tânărul Felix Sima vine de la Iaşi la tutorele său, Costache Giurgiuveanu, la Bucureşti, ca să înceapă cursurile Universităţii de Medicină. Aici o întâlneşte pe fiica acestuia, Otilia.

Enigma Otiliei este, pe scurt, un roman puternic, impecabil construit, un roman auctorial cu un narator care ştie tot şi comentează cu mare volubilitate toate actele eroilor şi toate situaţiile prin care aceştia trec. Ştie chiar ce se află scris într-un plic înainte ca adresantul să-l deschidă... Naratorul călinescian este, apoi, informat în toate direcţiile, de la arhitectură la moda timpului, şi speculaţiile lui fac parte din substanţa epică. G. Călinescu a înnoit şi din acest punct de vedere, structura şi limbajul romanului românesc, preluând şi reformulând un model deja clasicizat. (EUGEN SIMION)

    Honestly, I started reading this book with a deep breath. I was very sceptical and I expected this book to be way more boring. Călinescu turned out to be a lot more different than all the other Roman...

    I enjoyed the story, the historical colour, the characters, and I even was influenced to create similar charaters in my short story writing exercises....

  • Asphodel Parker

    Okay, so I couldn't decide if I should give it 2 stars or leave it at 3, but I decided the book was somehow more that "it was ok", but less than "i liked it", so my real rating would be 2.5 stars [mo...

    pheww, that was something! not gonna lie, i really liked it! it definitely had its moments when I was like "can we just get to the interesting part already", but overall, it's a solid novel. (also, th...

  • Ella Link

    Some have said that the author used Balzac's way of describing interior's of houses, and that for this reason, the book should be dismissed. I disagree with this view, and will say that Romanian liter...

    I read this book around the age of 15 and i read it now again. I discovered so much more than I thought I would, and all these discoveries gave a new meaning to the book. There's more to the main char...

  • Diana Gligor

    Besides the detailed descriptions and other significant techniques used by the author, this book has a great value by its entire message. After you finish it, you just start to think which is the real...
