I've never read anything by Woolf before but obviously know her by name and have a vague idea of how she's one of the big ones. And while I really enjoyed the overall style of the writing and the descriptiveness I just did not understand what was actually going on. Maybe nothing was going on. Maybe it is just a bunch of people at a party having a miserable time because they hate their lives, their insecurities, everybody else, etc.
I have a strong feeling that I'm not highly enough cultured to read books like this properly. I'm not deep enough.
