  • prompt delivery - excellent condition Oct 20, 2011
    by Allan G

    Having loved the movie, it's a pleasure for me to have the book, which I'm enjoying. Delivery was prompt and the condition is excellent, as described.

  • 'my center of gravity' Sep 23, 2010
    by jbrooks

    I disagree with negative comments about the movie. I enjoyed the movie, and that is what prompted me to read the book, never having read any other Byatt. At first, it was not so engaging, but I plowed on.. and ended up experiencing what may be the most fulfilling read ever. While reading, I became Possessed, and I was disappointed when the process ended. It was a heady experience indeed, this novel.

  • Wonderful writing and story. Jul 20, 2010

    A good read, Byatt's work is engaging. Holds one's interest. I also recommend her latest, 'The Children's Book'.

    Another enjoyable work by AS Byatt. Readers of her short, fairy-tales for adults will perhaps recognize some of the stories in Possession. I found it incredible that a single author could create such detailed worlds for her characters, inventing Victorian poems and academic "citations." I enjoyed, I suppose, the restrained passion in this book, also the portrayal of the modern academic world (it has its good and bad sides).

  • Definitely an interesting story Apr 3, 2007

    This book was slow in the beginning and I had a hard time really getting into it but I'm glad I persisted because it was definitely an interesting story full of subtle twists and turns. It is a romance but it is also mysterious. The author wove several stories about people who were all connected together in a way that mixed several different time periods and was very enjoyable.
