To the Lighthouse

Title: To the Light House

Author: Virginia Woolf

Pages: 252

Summary: To the Lighthouse is divided into three sections: “The Window,” “Time Passes,” and “The Lighthouse.” Each section is fragmented into stream-of-consciousness contributions from various narrators.

My Rating: 10/10

What I liked/disliked about the book: Woolf's writing is one of the most elegant and beautiful style's I've come across. The stories don't have daring adventures in them, but are about people and their lives, told by Woolf and her wonderful style of writing that bring the characters and their stories to life right on the page. I don't know how to explain it, but no one writes like she did anymore. It's just a lovely use of language and story telling. I'm glad I introduced my self to her. She is one of my favourite authors and I can't wait to read more of her work.

Would I recommend it to read: Woolf's novel's are classics, I'd recommend this to everyone. Even if this isn't your genre or the type of book you'd normally read, this is a book everyone should read. If not this book any of Woolf's novel's will do. But I think everyone should experience at least one of her novels or one of her pieces of work.

What to read next: I've read Mrs. Dalloway and I enjoyed it. Not as much as this book but it had her elegant writing style. Also if you want to read similar styles of elegance, then I suggest The Scarlett Letter, it has similarities in the level of elegance in writing (And I hope you understand what I mean when I refer to the elegance of an author's writing.)
