Críticas:

"[Affinity] confirms Waters' uncanny gift for establishing an instant connection between her readers and her flawed yet compelling central protagonists...she's a novelist of major rank [who] probes into questions of difference and susceptibility, privilege and confinement, betrayal and loss--and there are few young writers out there who can match it." --The Seattle Times

"The novel takes numerous surprising twists and turns before the startling resolution...superb...Waters pulls out all the stops." --Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"If lesbian fiction is to reach a wider readership, Waters is the person to carry the banner."--The New York Times Book Review

"The author of Tipping the Velvet displays her incredible talent for the Gothic historical novel in this splendid book about a Victorian women's prison and the affair there between an inmate and a 'lady visitor.'" --The San Francisco Chronicle

"Unfolds sinuously and ominously...a powerful plot-twister. The book is multidimensional: a naturalistic look at Victorian society; a truly suspenseful tale of terror; and a piece of elegant, thinly veiled erotica...Like a Ouija board, Affinity offers different messages to different readers, scaring the shrouds off everyone in the process."--USA Today

"Waters has perfect pitch in her representations of bourgeois Victorian life, the puritanical misery of prisons in the 1870s, and the spiritualist subculture...a deeply absorbing book." --The Advocate

"Unfolds sinuously and ominously...a powerful plot-twister...a truly suspenseful tale of terror; and a piece of elegant, thinly veiled erotica. Like a Ouija board, "Affinity "offers different messages to different readers, scaring the shrouds off everyone in the process."
--"USA Today"
"[Waters] displays her incredible talent for the Gothic historical novel in this splendid book about a Victorian women's prison and the affair there between an inmate and a 'lady visitor.'"
--"San Francisco Chronicle"
"Gothic tale, psychological study, puzzle narrative...superbly suspenseful...This is gripping, astute fiction that feeds the mind and senses."
--"The Seattle Times "

The Seattle Times An upper-class woman recovering from a suicide attempt, Margaret Prior has begun visiting the women s ward of Millbank prison, Victorian London s grimmest jail, as part of her rehabilitative charity work. Amongst Millbank s murderers and common thieves, Margaret finds herself increasingly fascinated by on apparently innocent inmate, the enigmatic spiritualist Selina Dawes. Selina was imprisoned after a seance she was conducting went horribly awry, leaving an elderly matron dead and a young woman deeply disturbed. Although initially skeptical of Selina s gifts, Margaret is soon drawn into a twilight world of ghosts and shadows, unruly spirits and unseemly passions, until she is at last driven to concoct a desperate plot to secure Selina s freedom, and her own.As in her noteworthy deput, Tipping the Velvet, Sarah Waters brilliantly evokes the sights and smells of a moody and beguiling nineteenth-century London, and proves herself yet again a storyteller, in the words of the New York Times Book Review, of startling power.
