The God of Small Things - Arundhati Roy

DNF @ 20%.

This book and I didn’t get off to a great start, and I admit that some of this was due to my own preconceptions. But, I gave it a try.

It just didn’t work.

When at 16% I still felt like

it just was not getting any better. The writing style was just aggravating me. I should have stopped there, but thought I’d read on for a bit to see if maybe the characters would make up the overuse of alliterations, but I just could not even get invested in the plot that was hinted at.

There are just so many more books out there that I would rather read.
