Reviews - What do customers think about L'amber?

Maybe it's just not enough escapism for me.  Mar 8, 2007
I found L'Amber to be interesting, but not captivating, but in all honesty it could simply be because it wasn't a Fantasy or Horror story. If anything, it felt more like Magritte's Secret Agent than Delirium's Mistress or Sabella or even Dark Dance.

Still, I would buy it anyway simply because I buy whatever I can of Tanith Lee's writings.
A cautionary fable about obsession.  Apr 2, 2006
Jayne, a café worker, falls in love with the ethereal, glamorous Jilaine during a chance meeting. Jayne (known as Jay) is a young, lonely, poor and a closeted lesbian. Jilaine is an artist, a published author and the daughter of a semi-famous painter. Jay's feelings for Jilaine verge on obsession and lead her to inveigle her way in Jilaine's life. She discovers that all is not as it seems.

Set in London in the early 80s, this brief novel is an acute psychological thriller and a character study. It is written like a monologue, and Jay's voice-the self-loathing, the distance she places between herself and people-comes through believably. Jay is the lesbian version Highsmith's Ripley-an amoral interloper, and the plot has an interesting Ingmar Bergmanesque twist.

Lee captures the crazy feel of emotional and sexual obsession in this cautionary fable.
