Not fooled by randomness,
This review is from: The God of Small Things (Paperback)
Over-written and over-rated. Rarely have I read a more deserving candidate for the Robert Graves mantra of writing a piece of prose then deleting all of the adjectives. I find the style too clogged up to work effectively, and there is not enough character development to make the book's central events credible or engaging. Some of the detail is captured skilfully, but on other occasions the linguistic tricks are over used and lose impact as a result.I found myself speed reading the last seventy-five pages of this. I doubt it will stand the test of time.
