Possession: A Romance by A.S. Byatt
Possession: A Romance

valgal, January 1, 2012

Byatt, as usual, creates a whole world of fully developed characters. Though they are at odds with each other, the reader comes to love them all. But the most astonishing feature of the book is the writer's tour de force in producing so many different voices and writing styles, letters, poetry and prose, ostensibly written by the various characters in the book. By the end, you want to read the books that are excerpted, but, darn! they aren't real...Luckily, it sounds like Ragnarok, her next tome, might be one of them. Can't wait!
