Well, not afraid, exactly, more like bored to death! Her novel Mrs Dalloway has been chosen at the last minute for our Book Club session next week. Struggling is putting it mildly - I last read To the Lighthouse forty years ago for my degree and I knew there was a good reason I hadn't read any of her work since! I'm about half way through and, yes, I get it's stream of consciousness but James Joyce did it to death in Ulysses. Maybe I'm just a heathen but I cannot enjoy this story - in one sentence I counted 7 commas and 8 semi-colons! Maybe one of you erudite types can convince me otherwise - good luck! (To put my angst into context, we were supposed to be discussing Artemis (Andy Weir) next week, but the supporter of the book has pulled out! Hmm, talk about the sublime to the ridiculous! Rant over!
