3.0 out of 5 stars Unsure..., 12 July 2008
By 
This review is from: Mrs Dalloway (Penguin Popular Classics) (Paperback)
Having finished `Mrs Dalloway', I was left unsure whether I actually enjoyed the book. I can clearly see why it has received so much praise as Woolf's excellent use of language truly envelopes you in the psyche of Clarissa Dalloway and the thought processes of her other dramatic devices, particularly the visionary Septimus. However I was, as I am sure Woolf intended, irritated by many of Clarissa's flaws and despite some of her redeeming characteristics, I found part way through the book that I no longer wanted to continue following her train of thought. Luckily there was also plenty of substance to be found in the other characters that made me want to continue reading and by the end I felt I had a thorough understanding of each of every one of them. I would, on consideration, recommend this book but I do not see myself returning to it in a hurry. It certainly stayed with me for days after completing it but purely because I just couldn't decide how I felt about it. Try it and see for yourself...
