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

jdidlick, January 24, 2010

Of all the books I have read in the past ten years, this one by far has stood out to me. Her style of writing is very gravitational for the reader, as it is original and daring in its approach. The depth of the characters' and their emotions through universal conflicts enables any reader to be able to empathize with the characters. Also she is able to give significance to the setting and culture of India in the characters and vivid descriptions of the locations of the story. A great read for anyone in need of a book of substance.
