Mrs. Dalloway by virginia Woolf

"Mrs. Dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself."
And from there the everyday life of Clarissa Dalloway is present for all to read.
This is a novel about the ordinary, something I've been reflecting upon lately.
You will find no monumental secrets exposed in Woolf's pages, no alien encounters, no time travel that changes the outcome of the war. You will simply find a woman contemplating her life of being a woman, choices she made, choices she was unable to make.
It's Virginia Woolf. If you've never experienced her, you will find her verbose and descriptive; she's not for everyone.
But fiction is about life, that's why we read it. For the glorious and the mundane. If you love words over plot, as many of you do, read this book. It won't disappoint.
