really liked it

TOO many words I didn't know! Can you say 'vocabulary lesson'? ugh OTherwise, BEAUTIFUL stories about unresolved and resolved tensions, communications, relationships, etc. I can't put my finger on the word I want (see? I DO need a vocab lesson.) Not amusing, not funny, well, maybe if you think DARKLY amusing. but not sinister.... I did love it, if I didn't get irritated that I didn't know some of the words. It makes me wonder about reading any more of Byatt, tho.
