Eliza Why? I'm curious (I adore Virginia, generally).

message 2: by Lavinia (new) - added it

Lavinia Well, as usual, I think it's my fault, not the book's or the writer's. I guess it has to do with my schedule being quite hectic lately and me not being able to focus on deep prose (let alone the slow pace of this particular book - or at least the ~100 pages I've read from it). For some unknown reason, I think it's quite a summerish book, the kind I'm able to enjoy when the weather is friendlier. So, I've got a ton of excuses. :))
How about you? Did you read / like it?

message 3: by Eliza (new) - added it

Eliza Oh, I understand that perfectly. I had thought you meant you didn't like it at all, so you had to drop it, that's what surprised me, since I adore Virginia (The Waves has to be one of my favourite pieces of literature ever). I will have to try this one too :) I'll be looking up for your rating/review if you do finish it some day. :)

Lavinia So I guess I must try "The Waves" as well, someday.

message 5: by Eliza (new) - added it

Eliza Absolutely! :)

Xandra lol it wasn't that bad.
