Review by jtho
What a lovely read. . . if you're nervous to pick it up because it's a classic, don't be. ;) Reading this book is like walking down the street and being able to see the thought bubbles above everyone's heads as you pass by. You choose a few people that have the most interesting thoughts, and follow them around for awhile, observing their day and peering into their mind, too. Very readable, very enjoyable.

Very, very, very good. Massive impression on me, she's still at the forefront, even now she's pushing boundaries. And the use of semi-colons! Wow!

Well there go three or fours hours of my life that I will never get back!

Struggled to love any of Woolf's novels outside of The Waves. Yes, the prose is inventive and often beautiful, but it's concealing a novel which is essentially a thinly-plotted tale of upper-middle-class manners in the 1920's - about which I can't muster much interest.
