    "I had no clue about the culture of India until I read The God of Small Things. It is a great book but can be taboo because of a controversial love story."

    "Roy has done a fantastic job with portraying the magical bond that exists in a twin relationship. Flowing between the memories of childhood to life in present day this is a story of the timeless relationship of those who are familiar."

    "I don't know if it's a perfect solution even though India is in South Asia. Asia related books is a pretty broad topic. I think maybe something specific like India related literature would be better. Aside from that it is quite the unique and we'll written novel. Not many people reach out to novels set in India so it stands out. "

    "This book weaves a rich tapestry of imagery and experience of family life in India in the 1960s. A change to family dynamics is brought about by the arrival of a family member that brings on a flurry of dramatic events. Above all else, this book is beautifully written and it was worth it for me just for that."

    "I love intellectual books and I love variety in them. So I recently read the book "The God of Small Things" which was not written by a white male. It was very interesting to read something from this point of view. I found it stimulating and really feel like I learned a lot."

    "Interesting book from a setting in India. If you are interested in books that feature settings different than the U.S., then this book will without a doubt give you that new type of perspective. The storyline is really fantastic, and sort of immerses you into the book. I really did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did, but now I may even consider it one of the top books I have read."

    "I didn't love the book. I thought it relied too much on cheap drama and cliffhangers to push you through the story rather than compelling characters and authentic emotion. I found the journey believable but the love between the characters felt shallow, and written by someone whose idea of love was formed in a movie or television show."
