What makes her a good writer is the simplicity with which she writes and yet is able to send a complex message across to the readers. She frequently draws on her experiences as an immigrant and therefore her stories have a genuine touch to them.

Her must-read book is The God of Small Things, which brought her fame and popularity. As can be guessed from the title, the theme of the book is about how even small things affect people’s lives.
