That s what careless words do They make people love you a little less Honestly I wanted to like this one SO much but it was terrible The novel follows a multi generational Indian family in 1969 The matriarch Mammachi is their abused and blind grandmother Ammu is the weary mother of fraternal twins Esthappen and Rahel The twins favorite uncle Chacko brings his white wife over for Christmas the twins immediately fall in love with their cousin only to realize just how uickly life can change And the air was full of Thoughts and Things to Say But at times like these only the Small Things are ever said Big Things lurk unsaid inside That good things become bad in an instant This was the trouble with families Like invidious doctors they knew just where it hurt This book is one of the Important Novels the ones that get talked about over and over about how Significant and Essential they are for readingand much like many Important Novels I just didn t enjoy itNow the last time I didn t like an Important Novel cough cough Animal Farm I was besieged with comments about how I was too stupid to understand the novel I will maintain at least in that novel s case that getting it and liking it are two entirely separate things I didn t like Animal Farm PeriodHowever for The God of Small Things I honestly don t know if I didn t like it because it was bad or if I just didn t get it I couldn t follow a thing The timeline was disjointed often skipping ahead followed by flashbacks so I felt disoriented and disgruntled much of the time The prose was overly complicated and tiresome to read I love beautiful language and elegant metaphors but this one had so much of both that it would sometimes take pages to figure out a single subtle point The characters felt like snapshots rather than fully fleshed out characters So much metaphor time absolutely no character development And in general the plot was one giant grey mess Did something happen Was it significant Or was it just humans being garbage people to each otherThis seems to happen a lot with critically acclaimed books people love it but without that badge or sticker of approval I don t really think it would be so popular Ultimately it s one very confused star Not a fan of this one DISCLAIMER I m a huge audiobook fan so I picked up the audio version Maybe I shouldn t have I kept getting confused this novel to me was difficult to follow via audiobook even when I repeated the beginning 3xs so perhaps if I had read it the book would ve felt less disjointed and I would have enjoyed it significantly But I m not feeling up for a reread so my review will stand as is YouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

It is 1969 and India although having achieved independence twenty years earlier is still mired in its caste system In this light Arundhati Roy brings us her masterful first novel The G D of Small Things which won the Man Booker Prize in 1997 A powerful novel filled with luscious prose and a heart rending story Roy reveals to her readers an India hanging onto to the traditions of the past with a slight glimpse of her future Ammukutty Kochamma the daughter of a respected entomologist and classical violin player desired an education rather than an arranged marriage Her family belonged to the Touchable caste and while tolerable of others desired that their daughter married someone from a family like theirs Ammu met a Bengali and married for love He turned out to be an alcoholic and they divorced within two years although not before giving birth to fraternal twins Estahappen Esta a boy and Rahel a girl Ammu retreats with her children to the family estate doomed to live a miserable life as an outcast Even though Ammu raises Esta and Rahel to be brilliant children the rest of the family resents their presence at the home in Ayemenem Her father has died and her mother although a presence is blind The new head of the family is her brother Chacko a former Rhodes Scholar and current member of the communist party Although he attempts to be a father to the twins his pseudo love pines for his biological daughter Sophie Mol who lives in England While Chacko tolerates the family Ammu s aunt Baby Kochamma spews nothing but venom at Ammu and her children for the rest of her life Failed at both becoming a nun and winning over her true love in life Baby Kochamma desires nothing than to make all those around her miserable but especially her divorced niece Ammu and two bastard children Roy merited the Booker prize for her story alone as it featured forbidden love within the caste system and memorable multi layered characters Yet what most likely won Roy this award was her masterful prose which when combined with her tale results in an instant classic Switching from current time to flashbacks speaking backwards in twin language and detailed descriptions of Indian life are only a few of the facets contributing to this tale Adding to the prose the tragic tale of twins separated a woman denied love because he belongs to another untouchable caste and other characters pining for a life that might have been Roy has woven together a true gem Recently I joined the year of reading women of color challenge which lead me to read novels by female authors around the globe who I would not have considered otherwise Arundhati Roy is a gifted storyteller and film writer whose work should not be missed Her second novel The Ministry of Upmost Happiness is due out in July 2017 If it is nearly as masterful as The G D of Small Things it is a novel that should not be missed A luscious complex novel worthy of its awards The G D of Small Things merits 5 sparkling stars
