Great book, great writer

I treid skipping Virgina Woolf in my youth, and now, in my dotage, I have the time and energy to read, read and read more! This is just fntastic, if you've seen the Hours film, you have to read this. What can I add? A basic fabulous book by a female writer, clarity expression, content, style and of course a terrific name!

It is short, but Woolf introduces a new literary style (stream of consciousness) that proves a little challenging. Her diction helps set the somewhat sad tone of the book, but however sad, Woolf is a literary genius and that comes across in this novel.
