Book Recommendation

Hey, everyone!
It is the dead of winter up here in Maine; I don’t remember the last time I walked to class without slipping on ice!
1*1zdEXJaDClLTFweZ5KOqZgThis week I want to share an incredible book that is sure to add beauty and color to a bleak winter. It’s called The God of Small Things, written by Arundhati Roy. It is sincerely one of the most beautifully written novels I’ve read in a very long time; each sentence opens the reader’s eyes to new imagery and vivid colors brighten the narrative and make it impossible to stop reading. The story follows an Indian family and their changing values and perceptions of each other over time. Each character is supported by rich exposition and little stories of their own, making the broader narrative-rich and absorbing. In particular, the two twins, Rahel and Estha, have a unique relationship that spans the boundaries of their consciousness and presents questions about individual identity and growth.
This novel is perfect as an afternoon page turner or as a more drawn out and savored treat. I definitely think this is the type of book that gives the reader more with each read through, and I certainly intend to read it again!!
