Title: The God of Small Things

The down low: Man Booker Prize winner in 1997.

Summary in 2 sentences: Twins Esthapen and Rahel are growing up in India in the ’60’s. While they are wealthy, their mother starts an affair with an “untouchable”, a decision that will lead to tragedy.

Why you should read it: This book will make you feel things. It is one of those novels that is depressing but for a reason, not just to exploit your emotions. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a great tough read.
