    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.

    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...

    One of the best works in fiction of all time

    The God of Small things is one of the rarest fictional works ever written. I don't want to repeat the story, rather I would say about its style of writing.

    The book, although a novel, is actually a poetic work. Unbelievable unfolding of beauty in saddest incidents, elegant description of thoughts, and creation of mist through continuous transition from past to present and present to past and word twists, makes the book what it is.

    Recommended for those who love childhood, who love the conte...
