Big Things—colonialism, the caste system and inter-family dynamics—are encapsulated in Small Things seen through the eyes of young twin siblings Rahel and Estha. Roy’s twisty wordplay deftly spins a story of cultural and personal longing. Read full review

I am reading it again for the 2nd time two years later. Good humor mixed with harsh realities. A different view of life in a foreign country that we all know too little of. A good quick read. Read full review

Rarely does one come across a book so beautiful that the picture it paints in your mind stays with you long after you have flipped the last page, with a heavy heart, if I may be allowed to add. A book worded so intricately and enchantingly that it makes you read on, even if the story does not progress the way you would have liked it to.

One of the most thought provoking books i have ever read. Unmatched observation and correlation of the small things which happen and pass in the life of an ordinary indian citizen. The citizen of the developed world might just try to understand it but surely the citizens of the balance world see it vividly as they read happening all around. One of the must read books. atul sanghavi India
