The God of Small Things

The God of Small Things - Arundhati Roy Gorgeously written, compelling plot, compelling characters, interesting narrative structure. I loved pretty much everything about this book.

It is very tragic. I nearly cried at the end and I was certainly disturbed in many places. That's how touching this novel is. So don't read it if you're looking for something cheery and uplifting. But do read it some time. It's beautiful and poignant; one of the best things I've ever read.
