The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
The God of Small Things

Danya, January 1, 2013

This is a beautiful story, written in a whimsical style that is never dull. Told through the eyes of two young siblings, it is filled with their imaginative spin on the serious events unfolding around them. The narration reads at times like a dream weaving through the events of the story, from the lighthearted joys of their childhood to the bittersweet challenges of life and family.
