Mrs Dalloway - Virginia Woolf

Mrs. Dalloway - Virginia Woolf

Mrs Dalloway is a kind of life-in-a-day book, in that it follows its main characters through a single day in 1920s London. I give it two stars not because it was a bad book, but more because I don't remember most of it, and thus it is quite hard to review.

I liked Woolf's style: uncomplicated yet elegant, completely apposite for the stream-of-consciousness narrative. I liked her portrayal of Septimus, the shell-shocked soldier, and the callousness of his doctor Sir William Bradshaw.

But that was all. It was a fairly unmemorable book.
