I think 'It was OK' is pushing it a bit, I can't believe it won The Booker Prize. Basically if you've read The God of Small Things, you'll find The Inheritance of Loss seems to have been made up from all the bits arundhati roy left out for being too trite/dull/stereotypical or just rubbish. Boo to the Booker Prize committee!
