Reading progress update: I've read 1 out of 321 pages.

The God of Small Things - Arundhati Roy

As much as I would like to crack on with my Opoly reads, I need to make a start on this month's RL book group read.

 

If only I found the premise of the book a bit more interesting. How is it that the books on the library group reading list are all a bit meh? From what I have seen, the titles are either hyped up popular fiction novels or debut works of unknown authors.

 

I've had this book for three weeks but have had no interest in starting this. I hope I am wrong but I can't shake the feeling that this will be another over-written, highly dramatic, humorless, family saga, which will derive a lot of "interest" based on its "exotic" setting and possibly some or other romantic entanglement or, alternatively, tale of hardship.

:(

I really hope I'm wrong.

 

Has anyone read this?
