A reading group choice - avoid!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The God of Small Things (Paperback)
This book divides opinion in reviews. I read it because it was chosen by one of our reading group members and it is a group that takes its choices very seriously - that is the only reason I finished it but even then I had to make myself read 50 pages per day - I couldn't do more.
None of the group enjoyed it - even the person who had chosen it!
It is good for discussion but I have read many other, much better, descriptions of life in India and any of those would be a better choice.
I can only believe that the people who really rate it live on a different mind planet to me - I have studied literature all my life and regard reading as my major interest but this - no!
