Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

In her first novel, award-winning Indian screenwriter Arundhati Roy conjures a whoosh of wordplay that rises from the pages like a brilliant jazz improvisation. The God of Small Things is nominally the story of young twins Rahel and Estha and the rest of their family, but the book feels like a million stories spinning out indefinitely; it is the product of a genius child-mind that takes everything in and transforms it in an alchemy of poetry. The God of Small Things is at once exotic and familiar to the Western reader, written in an English that's completely new and invigorated by the Asian Indian influences of culture and language. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Pressestimmen

'In part a perfectly paced mystery story, in part an Indian Wuthering Heights: a gorgeous and seductive fever dream of a novel, and a truly spectacular debut.' Kirkus 'The God of Small Things genuinely is a masterpiece, utterly exceptional in every way, and there can be little doubt that posterity will place it very near the top of any shortlist of Indian novels published this century.' William Dalyrmple, Harpers and Queen. 'The quality of Ms. Roy's narration is so extraordinary - at once so morally strenuous and so imaginatively supple - that the reader remains enthralled all the way through to its agonizing finish... it evokes in the reader a feeling of gratitude and wonderment.' New York Times

Format: Taschenbuch
I remember an unusually well-read American friend of mine telling me that this book has been a revealation to him about the qualities of indo-english writers and also the complex and broad cultural spectrum of India the country. That was an year ago in LA. And immediately after that, another chap, a fellow Marquez and Rushdie fan, warned me about the pretentiousness and juvenile linguistic juglaries that are shamelessly repeated throuhout the novel. I guess both of them are right.Her absurdly beautiful language has really brought alive the bucolic beauties of 'God's own country' Kerala. Nature, both pristine and humane,are seamlessly inter-woven around each other. And she has honestly tried to face the major cultural dilemmas of post-colonial India ; what all are to remain 'pure' and untouched and what all are to be sold ? Check out the chapter where she brillaintly describes the trauma of a 'Kathakali' dancer( a traditional folk dance)who exhibits himself in front of the modern world of tourists to earn his leaving. I found it a very potent symbol of India's own problems.Maybe Roy didn't intend it to be so.
When it's expected that the whole world will go ga-ga over all these positive aspects, it's surprising nobody seems to notice the very obvious flaws in this novel. No matter what you say, a novel is about story-telling( from Cerventes to Fuentes, that's the way it has been). And she hasn't yet learnt that. There is no underlying rhythm in the time-travels we encounter all so very often. Even to give your plot a semblance to the incoherent tricks that memory play, you actually have to 'construct' that incoherence. At places, it seemed like a William Burroughs 'book'. And then, the annoying repetition of what another reviewer says as 'Bratspeak'.

4 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von "kriegerinadra" am 12. Dezember 2003
Format: Taschenbuch
This is one of the most sensitive, intense books I have read in the last few years. It reminded me a little of H. Hesse "Siddhartha" because the main story also takes place in India. In this book we get to know about a family - tragedy out of love and at the same time about the caste system in India. This combination of fiction and reality is what makes this book astonishingly relevant. The suspense of this book is created through the subtext, the more we get to know about the characters the more we are able to understand the inevitability of the world breaking down around the characters.

Format: Taschenbuch
With so many excellent reviews of this fantastic book this will be brief. This is a true masterpiece written in truely beautiful poetic language.
This is very sad tale of two generations of a well to do family of Syrian Christian Indians. Relatives from the West visit and lives are never the same again. It is also a tale of the cast culture and the untouchables and of many people and events that cross the path of the main "tale"
Roy's prose is beautiful. Her ability to create truly vivid images is extraordinary. I took so much pleasure in her description of the many fine details of the lives of her characters. Her unique style of writing that keeps going back to earlier images to revive them in the mind of the reader was most enjoyable.
If you like a clear plot and fast action this book is definitely not for you. There is no plot per se, events unfold very slowly most of the time with lots of digression. I loved that it, it gave me time to build an image in my mind and that image kept on getting developed and refined. The main charachters are sketched but not always in total, this comes across as a given, so you don't miss it.
I absolutely can not wait to read more of her work.

Format: Taschenbuch
This is the first book I have read by this author and I am glad that it is his debut book. The story is lovely and convinced me that Arundhati Roy is a great storyteller. Many of the characters are rich and original and the story is full of credible twists and turns, making it the interesting read that readers are always looking for.
This fascinating novel that is set in India in the late 60s begins with the funeral of a cousin of the novel's narrator. Rahelas she is called shares with her twin brother Estha share family secrets that are masterfully presented to the reader in this gripping, suspenseful and revealing prose that is told from the point of a child. Rich in characters and an amazing plot, The God of Small Things takes you into the fascinating setting of India , its politics, rich culture , unique social and caste system, numerous taboos, and its turbulent rich which all have an influence on the characters of the story. A highly recommended read:

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Kacey am 9. April 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
The God Of Small Things, a novel by Arundhati Roy, is a tragic story that gives insight into the effects of India's political/social problems on the everyday family in their everday lives; the ways in which these problems can destroy both rich and poor. Through the eyes of a wealthy Syrian Christian family in Kerala, the dynamics of the Indian caste system are revealed, as well as the punishments for those who violate its rigid boundaries. Even those who claim to stand up for the untouchables, hold them back, because they greedily climb through politics to reach higher social status. The novel flips back and forth in time, which allows the story to unravel with much intrigue. The constant foreshadowing kept me wondering what exactly was going to happen, and how, and why. Roy's use of stream of conciousness allows the novel to come alive. It gives me a personal connection to the characters and a light hearted feel in some not so light hearted moments. Her vivid imagery makes it easy to invision the scenes, as if I am watching a movie. It allows me to completely forget that it is only a book, that there is no real reason to laugh, no real reason to cry. She also makes multiple allusions that give the novel a contemporary feel which made me realize that not all of India is built of poor tribes, but that there are in fact areas with reasonable amounts of technology and advancement. When she tells a story it is somehow magickal. It draws me in and leaves me spellbound. No matter how the family broke the love laws it did not disgust me; instead I somehow understood their feelings, even when what happened was against my basic values.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
