    more from this reviewer

    A must read for Woolf lovers.

    Night and Day was the first work of fiction I read by Virginia Woolf and in this book I fell in love with her writing--which encouraged me to read her other famous works such as Orlando and Mrs.Dalloway. In this book Woolf compares and contrasts the lives of two very different woman from their intellectual abilities, their beliefs to their romances which intersects in the same man, causing one initial pain and the other eventual happiness. From that intersection the two women eventually decides on very different lives and paths for themselves. While Katherine Hilbery decides on her love for Ralph Denham and the two presumably have a happy and loving life together, Mary Datchet forgoes love for the rest of her life focusing all of her efforts, attention and time on woman suffrage movements.
    The language can be difficult at time and sometimes sentences can be paragraphs long. But any determined reader will make to the end due to the intricate plot lines, in-depth focus on characters and different points of views present in regards to women in society.

    I cherish this book and would recommend it to any 1920's fiction lover, especially to those who adore and admire Virginia Woolf.

    literary drama romance

    Introspective novel contrasting our inner dreams and feelings with our outer relationships and work. The characters were a mix of introverts and extroverts and illustrated how these two types struggle to understand one another. Although the book was more descriptive than active, it was not dark. It was actually a positive story, and one of Woolf’s more conventional plot constructions. Strong imagery, depth of characterization.

    Wow!

    This book, although not written in the most well-known Virginia Woolf style, glows with a uniqueness of its own. In some places, it reminded me of Jane Austen's traditional English novels, but it also shows glimpses of Woolf's other work. The way she writes is totally unique and refreshing and makes it easy for readers to understand and relate to situations, thus creating an intriguing and addictive story. It also is quite funny at times and contains great social commentary. I would recommend it to everyone who likes brilliantly written and interesting love stories.
