The GameThe Game by A.S. Byatt

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I bounced off this book hard, which surprised me. I love A. S. Byatt, and I love everything she's written that I've read. I've only bounced off one other book, and that's because I mistakenly picked up the third in a trilogy and started reading it while wondering what the hell was going on. Her writing is beautiful as always in this novel, but it is also a bit overwrought to me, and I find none of the characters sympathetic or very interesting, and I find all their emotional responses to be disproportionate to the events of their lives. I kept waiting for the reveal of some terrible, traumatic secret that could account for all their fear, anxiety and existential horror, but I waited in vain. I am disappointed.
