Of all her books, Virginia Woolf's "Jacob's Room" was her favorite. It is like an Impressionist painting - sketches and outlines of characters, hints of plot, swirling language. It's a beautifully written novel- but be sure to take the time to read it carefully.

this book is very tiring one... you have to read it in the silence of the night. why? because this one gives you the sensation of being another one, being a very misterious.. being loved but unknown, being frustrated for live but you desire to live forever...

Maybe I wasn't in the mood for some artsy-fartsy literary style, but I couldn't get interested in this book in the first 20 pages, and had to put it down. I'll let my guilt over that fester for a while and try again, but I'm not holding out much hope that it'll somehow be better the second time.
