The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy

A beautifully written fiction of the life of a family residing in Kerala, India. The characters in the book is so vividly portrayed in words – it’s almost like you are reading the mind of a child, a lunatic and a woman pinning for a man in her life. The story unravels slowly, leaving the mystery unveiling itself towards 3/4 of the story. After than, you can pretty much guess what is the going to happen. Though the plot of the story was easy to guess, the way the author told the story will keep you reading. The story almost ends abruptly once the mystery is unveiled – it was a disappointing end. I would rate this book 7/10.
