The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy was a good read, just finished it.
Although it has won the Booker prize, it doesn’t meet my expectations. It does have some redeeming qualities though. I really liked the style of “stream of consciousness” that’s carried beautifully throughout the novel, the apparent irony of the society stripped bear of its façade of culture and tradition. Most of all, I really appreciate the bold questions that the author puts forward regarding sexuality, love and relationships. Here are a few quotes that I liked :
Man has a subliminal urge to destroy what he can neither subdue nor deify.”
“Each time they parted, they extracted only one small practice from one another.
