Marginalized. Having waited two decades for another novel by Arundhati Roy, I dove into her new book titled, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness. I’m glad I did. She pulls readers into the sights, smells, sounds and people of India, especially the marginalized ones. Don’t worry about keeping track of everything that’s going on. Let Roy take you across the subcontinent and over decades of time. Her prose is finely written in this epic novel and those readers who enjoy finely written literary fiction are those most likely to appreciate this novel.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
