4.0/5 Goodreads

The God of Small Things is a novel by Arundhati Roy that follows the story of a family in India, focusing on fraternal twins Estha and Rahel and their experiences growing up in the southern state of Kerala. The novel explores themes of love, betrayal, caste, politics, and the impact of colonialism and globalization on Indian society. The story is non-linear, jumping between the twins' childhood and their adult lives, and centers around the death of their cousin Sophie Mol and the events leading up to it. The novel ultimately portrays the ways in which societal expectations and prejudices can destroy the lives of those who refuse to conform.

"Its rare to find a book that so effectively cuts through the clothes of nationality, caste and religion to reveal the bare bones of humanity. A sensational novel" - Claire Scobie, Daily Telegraph
