In conclusion, God of Hunger is an extraordinary work of literary fiction.
Obviously it isn’t aimed at a popular readership. It is idiosyncratic, complex

erudite, and manages to compel the reader’s involvement from the very
beginning. The sense of history is grandiose without being grandiloquent; a
quality which it owes to its basis in well drawn human characters. I recommend
this novel highly.’
