‘They all broke the rules. They all crossed into forbidden territory. They all tampered with the laws that lay down who should be loved, and how. And how much.’
This is the story of Rahel and Estha, twins growing up among the banana vats and peppercorns of their blind grandmother’s factory, and amid scenes of political turbulence in Kerala. Armed only with the innocence of youth, they fashion a childhood in the shade of the wreck that is their family: their lonely, lovely mother, their beloved Uncle Chacko (pickle baron, radical Marxist, bottom-pincher) and their sworn enemy, Baby Kochamma (ex-nun, incumbent grand-aunt).
Arundhati Roy’s Booker Prize-winning novel was the literary sensation of the 1990s: a story anchored to anguish but fuelled by wit and magic.

🚀Sangat menarik

This is a wonderful book, lovely written, and with a great development of the story. There’s some musicality in the narrative, which sometimes made me read out loud the same paragraph several times. The descriptions are build with images nicely embroidered from daily objects and situations. The plot was interesting and it was easy to connect with the story. I loved it, I would read it again many times, and I totally recommend it.

Волшебная, невероятная и в тоже время совершенно реальная история мастерски рассказанная Арундати Рой. Одно из самых сильных моих впечатлений этого книжного года.

is curious how sometimes the memory of death lives on for so much longer than the memory of the life that it purloined.

He held her as though she was a gift. Given to him in love. Something still and small. Unbearably precious.
