Ellinor's Litventures

This blog is about my literary adventures in different genres. I like variety in my reading and will read books from most genres but particulary book with some literary merit.

Der Gott Der Kleinen Dinge - Arundhati Roy, Anette Grube

The God of Small Language is written in an incredibly beautiful language: you have the feeling that you are actually feeling and smelling India, the most vivid images come to mind.
The language is also the thing that kept me reading this book: the story is ok and has some interesting aspects. But all in all I didn't care much for it. You learn about Sophie Mol's death very early in the book and from then on the story drags a bit on. It took me much longer to read this book than expected.
The language alone would have been worth almost 6 stars, but with the story I could "only" rate it 4 stars
