Read from January 14 to 18, 2011

This book was infuriating.. I read this for one of my classes. It made a lot of great important parts, but it was all hidden behind nonsensical babble and the inability to have a continuation of one thought! There are a lot of very interesting very important details and concepts she discusses! I was especially fond of her description of oxbridge "oxford and cambridge" and her mention of how it was built on the pooring in of riches and works, and how its "capitalistic" nature continues to live on through the nature by which it was created. To sum it up completely, their are a lot very thought provoking and great ideas hidden in her work; However, save yourself the time and pain and torture, and just buy the spark notes, or look them up on line, and read that. You will walk away knowing the most important principles of the book, while also having saved yourself from the waste of time and strain.

Cole Welch You realize it's Virginia Woolf, that's the kind of writing she is known for. Go try reading Jacobs Room, makes you want to hang yourself.
