Diane Zwang | 485 comments God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
5 stars
What a fascinating book, such intricate details to weave a story. Every word, every sentence, every paragraph carefully chosen. I have never read anything like it before.

The story, set in rural India, is of fraternal twins Rahel and Esthappen. It is a complicated family saga about love and loss. The caste system is alive and well in this novel. I loved that the story was not linear, we were for told of things to come so knowing the outcome was not the point of the story but the journey itself. This is one of those books that stays with you long after you've finished.
