I bought this book as a gift though I have read a previous edition. After reading a variety of Woolf's work I swiftly came to the conclusion that this is my favourite. Her stream-of-consciousness style does not appear laboured with facts and a lack of creative metaphor, indeed, quite the contrary. Her ideas are simple but profound, and masterfully structured in this little volume. Her thesis, which she moves away and returns to time and time again as she artfully weaves her discussion, is that in order to be independent, what a woman ultimately needs is a room of her own (and an income to boot). This was a lecture she gave at Girton, one of the first women's colleges at Cambridge. I would do anything to hear Woolf give this speech in the flesh. She was truly a Sophist and an incredible thinker, whose thoughts are sure to reverberate through time for centuries to come. I heartily recommend this book, for intellectual profundity and for linguistic artistry!

Virginia Woolf has been a great novelist in many ways. Her books are very innovative, complex and play in many layers of consciousness and sub consciousness.
All her works are genuine in its way and there are so many details to like or to think more deeply about.

This book is very good value and the Notes accompanying the Essay and Novel are most helpful. I would highly recommend this book.

Great book for its time and has survived the test of history well. Good for her!
Very different subject matters and approaches but both good.
