Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy, 1997, India, NOVEL

"...A mesmerizing, lyrical reflection on the tyranny of casteism in Kerala of the 70s, a portrait of a family's decline, and a meditation on forbidden love. Roy's powerful voice rings out as a protest against many forms of social injustice....."

(Samadrita, review)

Cecily | 23 comments I read this recently, having put it off for years, for no very good reason. It's certainly mesmerizing and lyrical, but as well as describing forbidden love and a family's decline, there are so many aspects of the butterfly effect. Wonderful. I adored it, and reviewed it here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show....


Roderick Vincent It was a fantastic novel. It's been a while since I've read it. It's worthy of a second read. Roy is certainly a talent.
