Editorial Reviews

Review

“Dazzling . . . as subtle as it is powerful.”—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
 
“[The God of Small Things] offers such magic, mystery, and sadness that, literally, this reader turned the last page and decided to reread it. Immediately. It’s that haunting.”USA Today
 
“The quality of Ms. Roy’s narration is so extraordinary—at once so morally strenuous and so imaginatively supple—that the reader remains enthralled all the way through.”The New York Times Book Review
 
“A novel of real ambition must invent its own language, and this one does.”—John Updike, The New Yorker
 
“Outstanding. A glowing first novel.”Newsweek
 
“Splendid and stunning.”The Washington Post Book World

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 😃
