Mini musing : Roy's God of Small Things

The God of Small ThingsThe God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Melancholic. Deeply moving and poignant. Read something so heart-touching after a very long time.
Also the atmosphere of dread and impending danger that Roy creates in the novel is exquisitely real and frightening.
And by the end you are left with a deep sense of hurt and helplessness at the thought of our own lives being insignificant in the face of larger scheme of things. Of being nothing but a speck of dust in the vast ocean of history and society.
