The God of small things
3 journalers for this copy...
It is written like you would imagine a thought process to expand and jump about-- a captivating narrative. Delicious descriptions that pull you into the moment sooooo fully! A mystery of sorts, but no in the whodunit sort of way-- you know what happened-- you are instead pulled through the story of HOW it happened. So interesting as you read the book to see all the pieces of the mosaic that created the situation as they fall into place and turn into the whole picture that is the story itself. Really well concieved and written!

I just finished this book and am in awe of Arundhati Roy's brilliant writing. The story is captivating and is told in such an interesting and unusual way. I highly recommend this novel.
I am sending this book to my friend Samantha (another PhinisheD Book Crosser!) - I hope she likes it.
This was a wonderful book. It's non-linear nature kept me reading simply to find out what happened next (uh, before). Roy's writing was picturesque to say the least. The characters draw you into the story as if they are family members of your own. The ending left me wanting a bit and there are some things that are left unknown to the reader (as in real life) but I felt that knowledge of them could have made the story somewhat more complete.
