really liked it

This is a book that has stayed in my book shelf at home for a very long time. I would constantly pass by it hestitating reading those hard and difficudlt pages for me to comprehend. But finally, one day I took up the courage after a while from going to a show of Virginia Wolf. The book Orlando is about a rich clergy man who goes through unreceprocated love. After this event he goes into a depression cycle, then becoming a woman. Post becoming a woman Orlando starts to realize the events that women must go through in thier everyday lives. Wanting to become a writer and not have the enegry or words when he was a man completely, changed as a woman. This book is great to read because it allows us to see why the author Virginia Woolf is so looked up to as a creative writer. Her description and imagery allows us readers to see the change and more than anything understand it. By reading this book it will allow you female or male to see the influence of sex in ones society. Answering our 10th grade question from this book (what is an individuals role in society) From this book it tells me to look at life through different lenses, no matter the issue or what people around you think. And with this, to influence your society in anyway you can from this book it is through his/her writing. But how will society adjust to a man/woman, rich or poor?
Read and Find out! I Know you wont forget this book!
