Comparing Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things and Chinua Archebe's Things Fall Apart Literature is an amazing type of expression. A multitude of things could be said so in so many imaginative ways. Whether the narrative that has been told is true or fiction, the important issue is how it is told. The structure of a narrative is the thing that gives it strength, power and the capacity to move readers. Arundhati Roy and Chinua Achebe are just two very talented authors who express their stories in two very different and special ways. Though their stories are different they have lots of similarities involving class structure, societal issues, moral and family betrayals, and tragedy. The God of Small Things, a novel, by Arundhati Roy unravels the secrets of a family in India. Arundhati Roy uses an intriguing method to tell the story of Ammu, Rahel, Estha, Sophie Mol, Velutha, Mammachi, Chacko, Margaret Kochamma, and Baby Kochamma. Roy starts the story in ways paraphrasing all the events that are to occur throughout the narrative. She then proceeds to inform about the funeral of Sophie Mol and Ammu, Rahel, and Estha's excursion to the police station. She starts the story at the end. The reader doesn't find out until much later who Sophie Mol is and why Ammu and the twins moved into the police station. Roy continues the narrative by jumping from Rahel and Estha's childhood to their adulthood. Every chapter jumps from past to present. In each chapter Arundhati Roy answers or creates more questions regarding her characters lives to the reader. She utilizes repetition throughout the narrative to make the reader listen, recall, and wonder what she is trying to get across. Roy also utilizes wonderful metaphors, similes, and figurative language into.
