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.

A RarityThis 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...

This story will stay with you for a long long timeArundhati 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...

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

The God of small thingsThe story keeps moving between past and present in no specific order. It is difficult to make out the start or end of the book as if you can just start from any page , like i said no specific order. The writer thinke very differntly from a common man. The similies are just amazing. She would suddenly compare a situation or someone with something that only she can imagine and beleive me it is beautiful. I looked forward to every comparison she made thorughout the book. The book does bind you towards the end when you are looking for the climax. But it ends pretty abruptly. Probably the author ne… (Expand)

The God of Small Things : A spell binding narration.For an average Indian who wishes to read between the lines of his society, this book offers the perfect description. The narration is spell binding. Subjects touched through those narration shows the ugly face of our society. Face behind the mask of pretentious culture and religious practices and namesake modernity.

Must read for everyoneThe best story about Kerala by a non-Keralite. One of the finest works of Indian English literature. Simple langauge (except for the fisrt paragraph). So deep in meaning. No twists, turns, tricky endings, surprises. You know what is going to happen all the way through. The journey is fun, not the destination.

THE journey to the endThis novel is a personal journey towards the end. Each and every page silently directed me to the end, the main story gets over in only three pages. But the aftermath forms the entirety of the novel. Every page I read created the suspense to doom. As aptly said this novel beautifully signifies the journey of the protagonist whose life left them years ago, they are living without life and evey page reminded me of that.
