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'

by jbrooks on Sep 23, 2010

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.

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

by kitkatpre on 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.
