And yet you want to know again Arundhati Roy The God of Small ThingsTiming is everything regarding books and I have to say that the timing for this book was excellent as it came to me amid my own reflections of the past my upbringing and personal history This was one of the books I read at the right time and when youo read books at the right time they often hold meaning for you This is one of the books that had me hooked from the start Arundhati Roy is a brilliant storyteller and I fell in love with the structure the content of this book the humour the cultural reflections This book was a reminder to me of how when I first started looking for Repressed Memories A Journey to Recovery from Sexual Abuse FiresideParkside Recovery Book diversity in literature Indian literature was one of the first genres I sought and felt comfortable inespite the fact that it s not my culture I knew I could relate to the Experiments in a Jazz Aesthetic depictions of life in the tropics life in a former British colony with Britishness being seen as central and something to strive towards as well like I previously experienced was very much on my mind while reading thisI found this to be a very compelling beautiful sad book with rich imagery The historical background was compelling I had little knowledge of the Kerala area which was the backdrop to twins Rahel and Estha s stories but Roy managed to make the story very compelling with her African Literature 9 discussion of Indian social issues and the history of colonialism And it was notifficult to remember how history shapes us Memory was that woman on the train Insane in the way she sifted through Alien Conquest dark things in a closet and emerged with the most unlikely ones a fleeting look a feeling The smell of smoke A windscreen wiper A mother s marble eyes I liked the non linear storytelling and I am finding that that s true to life in many ways Remembrances often aren t linear and with each chapter of the mystery is revealed and I find that to be an interesting metaphor in our own lives There was so much profoundness in this book and short sentences thatespite their length had me thinking in all sorts of Secrets of the TEAS® Exam Study Guide directions for example Toy Histories for rich tourists to play in toepict history and rich cultural heritage being lost and which reminds me of false historiesThe wordplay although it id get admittedly a bit repetitive was also interesting and I loved so much of the imagery especially that of the moth The moth on Rahel s heart spread its velvet wings and the chill crept into her bones Overall an excellent and tragic book with unforgettable characters Definitely worth the read Both she and he knew that there are things that can be forgotten And things that cannot that sit on usty shelves like stuffed birds with baleful sideways staring eyes This is without a Conjure In African American Society doubt the single worst book ever writtenIt makes virtually no sense jumping from past to present tense so often and without warning that you have no idea whats going on Out of nowhere the writer mentions filthyisturbing sexual things for no reason I could not even find a story in there just meaningless jibberish The thing that amazes me most though is that while i am yet to meet a single person that LIKES this book it makes it onto all the top 100 lists etc I can only believe that this is because there is NO point to the book but the reviewers and people that complile the book lists feel that no book can be written without reason and so they must be missing the point of it and therefore rate the book very highly so they seem as though they are incredibly intelligent and gained some sort of eep understanding from this book of garbageEnd Rant Arundhati Roy image from Slate This is a wonderful image rich novel told over several generations of a family in India The central event is the eath of a young girl and how racism and petty CYA politics results in the Alien Commanders Bride (Draconians, death of an innocent for a crime that was never committed The central character is a girlwoman a twin with an almost surreal connection to her other Their family life is told There is much here on Indian history the caste system and how that continues to manifest in the modern world It won the Booker prize and is very satisfying As I stand just outside the compound with the untended garden an uninvited random visitor thearkened Ayemenem House resembles a haunted mansion belying the truth of the lives it once nurtured with maternal protectiveness in its cozy interiors Derelict Abandoned ForgottenBut I remember I remember the lives lived and the loves which were birthed by circumstances loves which breathed for a while before
