Aberrant story about Indian family

This book, The God of Small Things, was published  in 1997. It’s written by famous indian women Arundhati Roy. And the book have won booker prize of the 1997.

The God of Small Things tells about life in India. It concentrate on a village named Kerala.The main characters are twins named Estha and Rahel and they have a kooky rapport. This book includes many characters; Pappachi and Mammachi, Chacko, Ammu, Baby Kochamma etc. The plot go forward building a story of Estha and Rahels life.

In my opinion this book is surprisingly good because I didn’t expect much from this book. Some words were abstruse and stroppy. Also it was quite hard to follow the plot because incidents went back in time. But still you can get a general idea what happens and who are who. This book makes me wanna read more books in English. I give this book 4 stars over 5 . The God of Small Things is close to ecxellent!

    Pretty interesting title for a review I would say. You’ve given enough details about the book which is very important when trying to raise interest. You did not tell very much about the plot of the novel but however it is perhaps not needed though.

    The structure of the review is clear in three steady chapters. Some of the words you used were extremely distinctive. All in all this review could have been a little bit longer.
