It is the continuouus flow of different thoughts and feelings present in Mrs Dalloway that makes this book so brilliant. No ones mind is so thoroughly organised, as portrayed in films, so for me the whole point Woolf was trying to make was diminished by the film. Woolf's style of writing was supposed to give the reader an insight into her mind, and that of her character's; this I believed she achieved in Mrs Dalloway.
reader from ohio i agree totally with you. this book was not worthy of my time. i had the hardest time keeping up with the scenes, and the people. i must say the movie was a lot mor organized which then made it easier to understand the characters and theme of the book
How are you going to keep up with all of the people and scene changes when Mrs. Dalloway keeps having flashbacks of her past? The movie was much more easier to follow. The book was very confusing and it didn't keep your interest at all.
