Mrs. Dalloway

Mrs. Dalloway - Virginia Woolf, Maureen Howard and of course my review vanishes yet again, thanks GR, for 'saving' it, actually it does this twice but luckily i cut/paste it this time around Nevertheless, I shall try my hand at rewriting this mini review again. [sighs]

***Read for my Classics Challenge***

“What does the brain matter compared with the heart?”

Well for one thing, my brain would be telling me that Woolf succeeds in writing lyrical prose while the story seems rather dull and boring to the point of feeling rather meh unfortunately for me. For most part this was a blur even though I did read it. Sure there were parts here and there that caught my interest due to the lyrical prose, but that's it. I just found this rather lacking with its characters somewhat (I didn't really connect with anyone), there didn't seem to be much of a plot, and seem to be bland to my reading tastes.

Sometimes I wonder how do classics become the classics?

This disappointed me greatly, and what saved it from being 1 starred by me was, as I've mentioned several times by now, the lyrical prose.

So 1.5 stars.

That is all sadly. :/

“Fear no more, says the heart...”
