    Review ½ Possession ✓ eBook PDF or Kindle ePUB PossessionThat was not what I was expecting this timeI have to admit I did not approach this book this time around with what I would consider pure motives I wasn’t in it to find things I had never found before to revisit a personal classic to explore ideas that I had left behind for the time when I was ready to connect with them in the way that they deserved I wasn’t even in it to re approach situations and characters with a new perspective of age and experienceNo I needed something from this book I can’t really think of any other way to put this really I was self medicating with this bookI’ve heard this talked about in so many different ways if perhaps not in those words by other book lovers that I know that I can’t be the only one who does this I came back to this book because of the transformative experience I had the last two times I needed to be transformed I’ve fallen into a new line of work in recent years and I

    Review ½ Possession ✓ eBook PDF or Kindle ePUB PossessionLiterary critics make natural detectivesI loved this novel I know there are plenty of arguments against it but to me it summed up my life in the grey zone between reality lived and consumed in fiction Whoever was caught by the passion of reading a love story that is inexhausible lifelong passionate and thus unlike most love stories between people will recognise the thoughts that accompany the lovers on the tracks of fiction past Whoever considers their library their most important POSSESSION will know the excitement of adding just a single poem's perfect rhythm to a collection already known by heart like a part in our blood circulation as Byatt points outWhoever has felt a novel take POSSESSION of heart and mind for hours on end knows that reading is a curse and a blessing at the same time for it makes

    Review ½ Possession ✓ eBook PDF or Kindle ePUB PossessionToo much work for too little rewardI read somewhere that if you pick up a book and you're not enjoying it by either a your age if you are under 50; or b 100 minus your age if you are over 50 you should abandon it and move on There is too much to read and life is too short to be spent reading bad booksI think this applies particularly to books in that grey zone where you can tell the writer is winding up to something and the style and story has enough ooomph in it to keep you powering on despite perhaps your better judgement AS Byatt's Possession A Romance is definitely in that zone It's not that Byatt is not a good writer she is I am enjoying her eviscerating attack on the insular political world of academia with its serpent eati

    Review ½ Possession ✓ eBook PDF or Kindle ePUB PossessionWinner of the Man Booker Prize in 1990Giving this book 5 stars was not ever in doubt for me This is one of the most remarkable books I've ever read I'm a romantic I admit I love art and art history I love good historical fiction But all that combined still does not make a good book AS Byatt pulls all this together with the most important aspect of any book great writing But she adds something else also something that's hard to put your finger on a uniueness an edge if you will that puts this work in a class of it's own It's a modern classic without doubt and it's worthy of all it's awards and praise

    Review ½ Possession ✓ eBook PDF or Kindle ePUB PossessionI just finished reading AS Byatt’s novel Possession again for about the fourth time It has been several years since I last read it and I have to say that I saw it in a completely new light It is a literary masterpiece that is exuisitely plotted and written This time around I very carefully studied the epigraphs leading off most of the chapters and all of the beautiful poetry included in the text I don’t know that I gave much than a cursory glance to the poetry during previous reads This time though I focused on Byatt’s poetry and discovered just how
