It is a grim novel and the author does not spare his readers. The last few chapters where one sees some light at the end of a dark tunnel and shares with the novels characters the joy of the coming wedding, but then to have these pleasant thoughts dashed with scenes of unimaginable brutality and misfortune is difficult to bear. I was disappointed with this ending because it seemed unnecessary as the reader has been given a real insight to life in India at the time of the novel's setting.
Otherwise this is a beautifully written novel that is worth being considered a classic - even though I found to be quite depressing, even though the humor is brilliant!
