The God of Small Things Characters ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ó The international publishing sensation of 1997 translated into 18 languages a magical sophisticated tour de forceThe God of Small Things heralds a voice so powerful and original that it burns itself into the reader's memoryF children they seek to craft a childhood for themselves amid the wreckage that constitutes their family Sweet and heartbreaking ribald and profound this is a novel to set beside those of Salman Rushdie and Gabriel Garcia Maruez. This is without a doubt the single worst book ever writtenIt makes virtually no sense jumping from past to present tense so often and without warning that you have no idea whats going on Out of nowhere the writer mentions filthy disturbing sexual things for no reason I could not even find a story in there just meaningless jibberish The thing that amazes me most though is that while i am yet to meet a single person that LIKES this book it makes it onto all the top 100 lists etc I can only believe that this is because there is NO point to the book but the reviewers and people that complile the book lists feel that no book can be written without reason and so they must be missing the point of it and therefore rate the book very highly so they seem as though they are incredibly intelligent and gained some sort of deep understanding from this book of garbageEnd Rant

Mainly in Kerala India in 1969 it is the story of Rahel and her twin brother Estha who learn that their whole world can change in a single day that love and life can be lost in a moment Armed only with the invincible innocence o. Please excuse me while I go sit in this corner and be dreadfully underwhelmed The God of Small Things won the Booker Prize in 1997 and I'd heard very good things about it And yet I really didn't like it It's not a bad book far from it The characters she has created are really wonderful and she has succeeded in evoking all the noises and sights and smells of Kerala even for someone like me who's never been further east than Poland The narrative structure is disjointed wandering from the now to 1969 and back again but I never found myself getting confused by itThe language use is inventive and creative and original; there were times when I found myself pausing to read back over a particular metaphor or simile because it was just that beautiful or thought provoking But the further I read into the book the strained the language seemed It seems to be teetering and from the wonderfully ornate to a kind of thing that reminds me of Victorian architecture all curlicues and flourishes and bilious cherubs and buildings that look like gigantic overdone wedding cakes It's too much all at once overwhelming the eye and leaving me feeling faintly sea sickI don't like the tone she takes in parts of it either; especially when she's talking about human nature or history or the caste system Not that I don't agree with a lot of what she says I do but she's too didactic I think it's her tendency to put every line in a new paragraph in these sections A subtle hand will always serve you better I think

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
