What the community says about A Room of One's Own

  • Judith Reyes
    Written on April 28, 2018
    "100 years later, she still inspires great insights into the common heritage of women. In eloquent, often poetic language, mrs Woolf makes us see the world through the eyes of Shakespeare's sister. She makes us see how women's toil has barred women from participating in the learned world. We shall not excuse ourselves for producing our offspring, but with modernity comes the responsibility to seize the opportunity to be educated, writing, productive citizens in more than one way. We shall not let ourselves be ignored or set aside, because our experiences are no less important than those of men. And our experience is the source of a different writing than that of men. Thank you for making me proud of my gender."

    "While searching for a book in the nonfiction genre, I came across Ms. Woolf's A Room of One's Own. Although it is a great read, I do not recommend it to solve the dilemma of finding a nonfiction story."

    "I felt that this book was too long and did not have enough of a plot to keep interest. Although it did bring up some interest points and hypotheticals, I had a hard time finishing the book. "

    "I love the whole concept behind this book, and it definitely falls into the category I was looking for, as far as fiction goes. It is female-empowering, and very unique. I'm glad I found this! It's very entertaining and thought-provoking."

    "This is decent. I picked this up one day and was amused for a good few hours. I then put it down and picked it up again months later. "

    "To Kill A Mockingbird is one of my favorite books ever and I was searching for something that I could read that would kind of recreate that feeling. I found a Room of One's Own and instantly fell in love with it."
