Волшебная, невероятная и в тоже время совершенно реальная история мастерски рассказанная Арундати Рой. Одно из самых сильных моих впечатлений этого книжного года.
Очень, очень сильная книга, мудрая, глубокая. И написана очень хорошо
This is the story that follow the life of the twins Rahel and Estha, and a disaster that change their lives forever. It also give us the perspective of their closer relatives and their community.
Each of the character had a level of suffering and pain that leads to a sad chronicle.
The author describe the background of the story in a vivid manner, the characters were interesting in their own narrative. The story also incorporates a political and cultural scene.
I really tried to like this book but sadly I just didn't. The moving from past to present to further past, deepening of each character that add so little to the main plot made me dislike this story. I felt that the story could have been told in the first two chapters.
I gave it 1/5. But I'll try to read this book in the future.
