A mixed bag,
This review is from: The God of Small Things (Paperback)
On the one hand 'God of Small things' is a wonderfully dense book, tiny details are drawn to the readers attention. The fasinating tale of twins draws you in, whilst at the same time there is an eery quality to the book. You know almost immediately that something dark and twisted has happened, it is somehow implied, but in a very subtle way.
The inter-twinning of the past and the present drives the book, to understand the present, the past has to be examined thoroughly. However, sometimes this is confusing, sometimes struggling to grasp at what point in the story you are, past or present. This frustrated me at times.
A book which has left me in a quandry... I like it. I'm just not sure how much.
