The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy
This one is worth the wait. Arundhati Roy takes you through a labyrinth of situations, all of which happen in India and based on real events. These events are depicted through two main characters, Anjum and Tilo, both of whom have a varied background and are beautifully rendered. Just like the main characters there are secondary characters who have been equally reared with dedication. Through poems and her wonderful writing, Roy makes you think, re-think and love life in all its different virtues.
