\"Dazzling.As subtle as it is powerful. Remarkable.\"--New York Times

\"This outstanding novel is a banquet for all the senses we bring to reading.\" --Newsweek

\"Hauntingly wonderful . . . Exquisite . . . Unforgettable.\"--USA Today

Winner of the 1997 Booker Prize - - New York Times Best Seller

Born from two eggs in the one womb of their beloved mother Ammu, Rahel and Esthappen have little to cling to but each other, and the occasional joy that passes through their young lives like a cool breeze on a sweltering Indian day. When Ammu, divorced and disappointed, returns with the twins to her family home in southern India, their worlds begin to open wider, all the while closing in on them.

As the three arrive into the arms of Ammu\'s eccentric and unforgettable relatives, a tragedy begins to unfold that will propel them toward a fate that has perhaps stalked them from their inception. Yet, throughout the pain and hardships of things large and small, the humor, humanity, and ferociously perceptive intelligence only bestowed upon seven-year-olds shines gloriously through.

At the core of this extraordinary, bittersweet story is the unforgettable narrative voice of first-time novelist Arundhati Roy, a uniquely talented writer capable of moving us beyond words with the perfect sentence and a profoundly insightful wisdom that far surpasses her years.

Splendid. In a word.

Have to come in terms with the fact that Only those with childhood still in them, would enjoy this book. How can such a beautiful language even exist?- That was my initial reaction to this. Ms. Roy demands such strong emotion from her readers that it makes you really wonder if you were an invisible being lingering around when the lives of the characters unfold in front of you. It literally serenades you, making you believe that these characters, really, yes, do exist. However, it your imagination that tells you that they are real.

i wish she wrote more fiction. touching more lives with each of her words.

This book has made me imagine, cry, ponder, chuckle, frown brought in goosebumps and contemplate in many ways like no book has ever done before. Vividly. Unashamed. The best part being that you imagine the characters living in front of you. To get hold of that small part is another thing. True, childhood lives only if you water it through your life.

A Rarity

This book is the best pick for a broad and open minded person.. Tells you how "Love" is always associated with sadness, how women are made scape goats for everything that happens, how a person's childhood experiences affect his/her perspectives and whole life.. The book has less to tell and lot to infer. So unleash ur minds open and then start reading the book...
PS: If u dont get the viability of the story,finish reading it and then spend a whole day thinking about it.. U'll get to know how serious the story is (Personal experience)..

An avg story line but still I'm thinking of reading it again

Each character is weird, the story is full of remorse... But the way Roy has written.... BEAUTIFUL.... The story keeps you glued and it really takes you to the place described and live those character, after reading the book you are in a complete different mood... The writing is that powerful.

If you are looking for something different from that of romantic/action genre, I recommend this book.

This story will stay with you for a long long time

Arundhati is a poetess, an artist who spins munificence with the ordinary. Her story - a part biography is like fine music to even an untrained ear. She's one writer that I admire mostly because her words tell us a story in visuals. You feel the pain, the struggle, the sly humor and the God she cherishes in small things...

A must read for every one who likes good literature...

Oh you do need some free brain and a huge dictionary!!

The book's status made me buy this book, I opened it, closed it, opened it, closed it>

It has some serious and huge unknown words and the story is not in chronological order.
Do yourself a favor and also order a dictionary along with this, or download one. You will need it!!

I left the book in the middle, but will start it again sometime, where I have the patience and time.

A ballad

The God of small things

A book which has words woven seamlessly and they play in your mind as a cadence that starts following a rhythm like poetry. When one is reading it, the words become a song and they keep humming inside your mind. The author adopts a style of writing in such...

something hitting at totally different level of understanding.

You can't fail to fall in love with the story characters. The language is purely beautiful and the essence never dies. And as approx all indian childhoods have experienced one or more tragedies. You will definately connect to this and feel the emptiness from within. (View complete review)

Good Read...

The book is nice and every page contains deep expressions and each time you read the same page you realise something new,different and something you didnt recognize early. but it requires effort and concentration....not the one which can be finished in single go. (View complete review)
