By Arundhati Roy: The God of Small Things

By Arundhati Roy: The God of Small Things. Arundhati Roy's the God of Small Things: A Study in Mutiple Narratives. Taking the series as a whole, it also confirms two things: that narrative nowadays is generically highly hybrid and increasingly cross-media; and that an understanding of the processes of writing and reading 'contemporary classic' (or at least 'currently famous') fiction cannot be separated - yet must be distinguished - from the processes of making and marketing books and films.

Arundhati Roy's novel The God of Small Things is frequently praised for its sensitivity to social injustice and its feminist politics, but it has also been criticized as exoticist and melodramatic. Thus, for instance, the representation of the lower class subaltern is essentially a fantasy, simultaneously unreachable and desirable, morally superior and physically perfect, a mythical god of small things, but also an object of terrible fear, mean and disgusting, driven by the lowest possible instincts.

  • Excellent product and it arrived on time.

  • I was disappointed in the content of this. It loses focus and discusses extraneous material more than the book itself.

  • This book is not what I intended to order but that was totally my fault. I will the use book in accordance with the text needed for the course. The book arrived quickly and would order from the seller again. Great service, just a mess-up on my part.

  • I don't see the point

  • The novel resonated with me on so many levels that I simply needed to dig deeper, so I bought my first reader's guide ever. What I found was a scholarly work as fascinating as the novel itself. It not only illuminated the structure and symbolism of Roy's book, it provided a rich background of the story's setting in India, comparisons to other Indian authors' works, and the political climate that led Roy to concentrate on social activism after her first and only novel.

    I was thrilled by the intellectual stimulation of reading Dr. Mullaney's guide and wanted more. In addition to the many references and recommended reading that she includes in this guide, you can find more of her own writing through the Manchester Metropolitan University's English Research Institute. This one guide has opened new vistas for an old engineer used to reading non-fiction, sci fi, survival stories, poitical thrillers, and the like. I've always appreciated excellent writing whatever the genre, but now am once again a student. Such thorough research, clear thinking, and precise exposition is refreshing and infectious.

  • This story is artistically crafted and exceptionally poetic with lots and lots of similes and repetition. The author clearly has her own unique style. The story moves backwards and forwards - it is often difficult to keep these shifting time periods in perspective - and in the telling we learn many historical facts: we note the complications of beurocracy, the legacy of colonization, the influence of American TV, sexual molestation, the unjust treatment of untouchables, etc... The greatness of this book lies in the way the writer has crafted her story. She is without doubt the God of Small Details.

    Although I found this story rambling at times, I highly commend the tremendous artistry of this author in this tale of love and loss.

  • I chose to read this book from a list of books in my women's study class 2 years ago in college. I found the story somewhat difficult to follow at first, so I ordered it on tape. I listened to the reader execute the story and once I was familiar with the characters, I read the rest myself. It was a truly moving story, that I feel, captured the feelings of people in that culture and time. I encourage people to read the book, and be patient while the story and characters unfold.
