    Summary of the Book

    The God of Small Things offers a keen insight into human nature with sensuous prose and dreamlike style. It is set in Kerala, India, during the late 60s where communism rattled the ancient caste system. The story starts off with the funeral of young Sophie Mol, who is the cousin of the protagonists - the twins, Rahel and Estha. In a serpentine and suspenseful narrative, Arundhati Roy unveils local politics, social taboos and historical aspects that lie underneath family tensions which leave the relationships irrevocably shattered. In this poignant novel, Roy captures the children’s candid observations, while showing an adult’s clouded understanding and complex emotional life.


    About the Author

    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 imagina...

    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...

    A ballad

    The God of small things
    By Arundhati Roy
    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 a manner that subtle instances build into your conscience and the story becomes yours. Words are used as such as the mind imbues with them impromptu instead of being grammatically correct. A not so i...

    A Sensory Feast!

    When i began reading the book, i was a little troubled by the not so comfortable names. Also, the starting was pretty dark and gloomy. However, as the book progressed, i discovered the true charm of Roy's writing. The description is so fluid and artistic that you can actually picture the scene being painted in your head (I am not saying that you can picture the scene being enacted. I am saying that its almost like an artist is painting away with his brush and with each line read, the painting...

    God of small things!

    Rating- 3.7/5
    Once you start reading, it is very difficult to stop! Arundhati manages to keep you hooked throughout the story. Story of Esthahappen and Rahel will make you think about & question a lot of things. And the author had managed to portray some very dark issues in a humorous light and you will actually laugh on all of it (and then feel guilty). Give it a try! Totally worth the money.
    Also, flipkart delivered a new book in a good condition and the price was reasonable as well. Satis...

    A very boring book

    I tried to read the book. The language is not catching. There is no flow. You can not complete the book in one sitting. yeryboring. I left it after reading a few pages. I do not know how people like it. The style is not good. It is not that it is the first book I read. I am a good reader and read almost one book a day. Sometimes I read 5 books a day.
