I usually don't mind reading books that require the reader to think. I understand why people enjoy Virginia Woolf's work and why English professors force their students to read her books, but I find her writing style tedious. I just don't "get" it. I was ready to give up on this book by page 80. Slogging through the rest of it was difficult. I had to resort to using Google to help me figure out what I was supposed to get out of reading this book. I was mostly just bored.
