    Description

    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

    Born on November 24, 1961, Arundhati Roy is an Indian novelist, as well as an activist, who focuses on issues that are related to social justice and economic equality. Roy’s writings are formidable and masterfully told. With a voice that is indigenous and vision that is clear, Roy debuts with her novel, The God of Small Things. She has won several awards, such as the Booker Prize (1997), the Sydney Peace Prize (2004) and the National Film Award for Best Screenplay (1989), for her highly acclaimed work.

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    PAGES ARE MISSING

    DON'T BUY IT!
    The readability of the book is not upto the mark, the pages are not of good quality, the cover page is slightly faded too.
    And MOST IMPORTANTLY LAST TWO CHAPTERS ARE MISSING!
    THERE ARE NO PAGES AFTER PAGE NO. 324 while the last chapter is supposed to start from page no. 331
    Also pages from 182-196 are repeated instead of the last two chapters.

    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...

    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...
