    BRILLIANT, BUTBoth brilliant and flawed, this book is an extraordinary achievement that doesn t always work, but is nevertheless a riveting, educational and inspirational read It was so beautiful and utterly engrossing, that I loved it despite its faults, and found it filling my thoughts and dreams for a considerable time after I finished it And it visits me still.

    I looked forward to read this book I was ready for a sweeping saga about the turbulent years between the closing of the Victorian age and the dawn of the Edwardian, with all its political, artistic and social ferment, and its culmination in the war to end all wars Who can better chronicle these years than Byatt, with her deep knowledge of the period and her knack fo

    I savored this novel every evening for the 2 months or so that I chipped away at its formidable length A.S Byatt has written a whopping, inimitable masterpiece of a heavy handed Victorian England succumbing to the blithe, jaunty Edwardian era which in turn gives way to the disillusionment and terror of trench warfare and World War I Byatt, so unapologetically erudite

    Disappointment beaten up by Byatt s wooden prose, after which she vomited her semi digested research over me Apart from that it is a great book Admittedly I was disappointed because I had this idea that Byatt was a good and accomplished novelist Had I believed that this was the author s first novel I might have been excited by its promise and ambition, fooling myself

    Reading The Children s Book for the second time has solidified its place as one of my all time favorite books Historical fiction when written well is one of my favorite genres Here Byatt has used her characters, settings and action to bring history in all its parts to life, supplementing with occasional narratives on history and the arts We readers encounter the family

    Some of my favourite things Presenting a wide panorama of history, a large canvas of art in its different forms, and a work that is very good literature, The Children s Book ticks several boxes for me This novel itself is intensely imaginative, and many of the characters in turn are creative and imaginative There are stories within stories, layers within layers, plots a

    Three days after finishing the audiobook version of this novel, I m still partly in the detailed and intricate world Byatt created I didn t want the book to end and I miss the characters A saga about the lives of its inter related characters between 1895 and 1919, the novel concerns itself with the history of England and to a lesser extent Germany during that period It d

    Including some status updates material in this Not even at the halfway point yet, but I am so baffled and dismayed I love Byatt loved Possession like everyone else, but I schooled myself to love the Frederica Potter quartet and other novels too , this book is all about topics I love, and so it totally should be my jam, as the kids say, and.instead it s like the dire momen

  9. Maria Maria says:

    The Children s Book gives the reader a big and sprawling story It centers around Humphrey and Olive Wellwood, living in a big house called Todefright love that name , and all their kids, friends, neighbors and other people that impact their life But most of all their kids There s quite a lot of historical background to all of this, and the main focus is on art communities

  10. Emily Emily says:

    In my reading of this I alternated between deep admiration of Byatt and deep irritation with her She has put all the force of her prodigious talent into burying the threads of two or three really interesting novels of reasonable length in this over sized book In a way, it is like a vast tapestry of the cultural movements in England, and to some extent Germany, from 1895 to
