    Description

    The God of Small Things is a Booker Prize winning debut novel penned by Arundhati Roy. It is about how smallest of the things affect the behaviour and lives of people.

    Summary of the Book

    In 1969, Rahel and Esthappen are seven year-olds. The twins reunite in 1993, at the age of 31. Set in a district of Kerala, the story brings out the myriad faces of caste system, communism and the typical Syrian Christian way of life of Kerala. The book poignantly describes the lonely and wretched life of Ammu, mother of the twins, who had married a man who turns out to be an alcoholic and is also obnoxious towards her. In an attempt to escape the misery, she elopes to live with her grandmother, Mammachi and Chacko. When Chacko gets to know the story of his ex-wife’s husband, he invites her and her daughter Sophie for Christmas. This is when the twins Rahel and Esthappen realize the terrible fact that things can change in a day. Their life abruptly takes an unanticipated turn. Discover more in this Booker Prize winning novel of the year 1997.

    Worst experience ever!

    Surely I will try not to use harsh words but the product I received was a counterfeit and has definitely a very bad print.I have to say that it doesn't even worth 200 rupees.

    Horrible

    Delivery was quick but the quality of book is pathetic. The cover seems as if the book is second-hand, in tatters.
