Product description

Review

A novel of real ambition must invest in its own language, and this one does -- John Updike, New Yorker

The joy of The God of Small Things is that it appeals equally to the head and the heart. It is clever and complex, yet it also makes one laugh, and finally, moves one to tears . . . Roy writes [with] a fecund, teeming visuality that is entirely her own. A masterpiece, utterly exceptional. -- William Dalrymple, Harpers and Queen

Richly deserving the rapturous praise it has received on both sides of the Atlantic . . . The God of Small Things achieves genuine tragic resonance. It is indeed a masterpiece, Observer

It is rare to find a book that so effectively cuts through the clothes of nationality, caste and religion to reveal the bare bones of humanity. A sensational novel, Daily Telegraph

A banquet for all the senses we bring to reading, Newsweek

A sad story, told very hilariously, very tenderly and very craftily, Pioneer

A compelling story which somehow marries the deepest, smallest personal emotions with an epic narrative, Sunday Express

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon does its job perfectly. 5 stars for amazon.
By Sakshi Chauhan on 17 February 2020
Review of the book:
"They all crossed into forbidden territory. They all tempered with the laws that lay down who should be loved and how. And how much."
.
"That's what careless words do. They make people love you a little less."
.
-Arundhati Roy, author of The god of small things
‌My first ever Man Booker prize winner read.
‌First of all, this is a heavy read.
Story wise- yes
Vocab wise- oh yes
Attention wise- oh damn yes!
Oh my goodness, every single word in every single sentence is pure emotion.
The way she has woven the threads of wittiness, politics, sexuality, innocence, dark desires is something I haven't witness yet.
You cant find any better writer than arundhati roy.
About packaging- amazon always does it's job perfectly. Delivery before time. Packed like always with a bookmark 😃

4.0 out of 5 stars Small things but deep feelings
By ADI on 4 November 2019
The God of Small Things was Roy's first book. She began writing the manuscript for The God of Small Things in 1992 and finished four years later, in 1996.

The God of Small Things is the debut novel of Indian writer Arundhati Roy. It is a story about the childhood experiences of fraternal twins whose lives are destroyed by the "Love Laws" that lay down "who should be loved, and how. And how much." The book explores how the small things affect people's behavior and their lives. It won the Booker Prize in 1997.

A worth to read and experience.
Strongly recommended.
