I really liked this book at first. I liked the style and the way the narration listens in turn to the musings of each of the characters and their judgments about each other. I also liked the feminist theme and the questions Woolf was asking about the relationships between men and women. However, that all kind of got lost, I felt, in the love story between Rachel and Hewet, and from there it all continued almost inevitably to the ending, which disappointed me. I won't spoil it, though - this is a quick, fun read, and it did make me eager to read some of Woolf's later, better-developed novels.
