it was amazing
Recommended for: The serious reader
Read in February, 2007

Certainly the most notable of Woolf's literary contributions, I read this in conjunction with Cunningham's 'The Hours', which was one of the original titles Woolf had considered for 'Mrs. Dalloway'.

Though somewhat cumbersome to read, the sentences structures complex and sometimes overwrought; Woolf never met a semi-colon she couldn't use, 'Mrs Dalloway' cleverly unveils the life and secret thoughts of a well-to-do woman in London in the years prior to WWII.

What is truly fascinating when reading this book are the subtlties Michael Cunningham lifted for 'The Hours', making the two novels inseparable.
