    "The Waves is a good book for those of us who like to imagine what it would be like to live back in the early 1900's! It's about how the loss of one person can bring people together in ways they didn't think was possible. You learn about how much of yourself you see in other's as they see themselves in you!"

    "I can easily admit that I am not a big fan of Virginia Woolf but I like Three Guineas. Women in politics is a hard topic to cover, you will love the way that this book is written; the three requests that she received. You should at least take a look at this book even if you are not a fan of Virginia Woolf like me."

    "Virginia Woolf is a well known and liked author. The book takes you through the life of Jacob and you get into his head as you walk in his shoes. The story is somewhat difficult to follow and understand on your own and may be best suited in an environment where you can talk about it with others."

    "A great book with many short stories by Virginia Woolf that she wrote while working on her novel Night and Day. You will find this a good insight into her technique as she was working out her stream of consciousness style of writing. If you're a fan of Virginia Woolf this collection of several different stories should be in your collection to fully appreciate how she develops as a writer. "
