What the community says about Possession
- "Possession is a great victorian historical fiction novel. It is based on the travels of 2 victorians between London and Yorshire in Britain. The novel really captures the essence of Victorian England. I really felt like I was there and experiencing it all."
- "If you're a poetry lover this is the book for you. It contains a vast amount of poetry in it. Its also something that fans of the Victorian era will enjoy to read. However, this is not even close to being considered as best novel set in London. Too many classics out there that are way ahead of this book. Poetry lovers will enjoy but others will pass on it as I did after reading a few pages. "
- "A romance, literary detective story and satire, that delves deep into poetry and academia. This is an amazing book, but if anything I mentioned in the first sentence doesn't interest you, then you'll probably want to give it a pass. It's not a book that everyone will find engaging, but for those who do, it's a rare treat."
- ""Possession" is an interesting piece, for sure! A historical drama, a supernatural thriller, and a romance in one, this is a great read for anyone who likes historical fiction. It follows two academics studying Victorian poetry, which sounds like the most boring premise ever, until they engage in acts like seances and explorations of fairy forests. Then it gets interesting!"

The writing is impeccable and the visuals presented as a result of the writing makes it a really engaging story overall. "
