The God of Small Things free read ↠ 6 The year is 1969 In the state of Kerala on the southernmost tip of India a skyblue Plymouth with chrome tailfins is stranded on the highway amid a Marxist workers' demonstration Inside the car sit two egg twins Rahel and Esthappen and so begins their tale Armed only with the invincible innocence of children they fashion a childhood for themselves in the shade of the wreck that is their family their lonely lovely mother Ammu who loves by night the man her children love by day their blind grandmother Mammachi who plays Handel on. Lush gorgeous prose reading The God of Small Things is like having your arms and legs tied to a slowly moving possibly dying horse and being dragged face down through the jungle I mean like that only nice You can t stop seeing and smelling everything and it s all so foreign and rich Potentially ripe with e coli The similes and metaphors Roy employs are simultaneously tactile and surreal like an overly vivid dream and her storytelling style is somewhere between Joseph Conrad Emily Dickinson and Pilgrim s Progress if you actually read That Particular Gem Key sentences reappear a few chapters later multiple times throughout the book the main one of course being Everything can change in the course of a day And if you re going to repeat a sentence multiple times in a book that s certainly not a bad oneThe one thing that makes me hesitant to go all out with the five stars is the whole backwards plot development thing At least early on in the book it struck me as a little gimmicky especially since the end result is so dramatic Estha doesn t talk any Why doesn t Estha talk any Something must have happened to him When did it happen to him As a child something very bad happened to him as a child You re probably wondering what that is now right Well now let s talk about his aunt He s got a mom too This is what their garden is like Hey remember Estha that kid you re wondering about Yeah something definitely happened to him as a kid Keep reading suckersBut I shouldn t say that because of course it turns out you re not a sucker for reading this book and the joke is on me for ever thinking so in the first place
