Book Review: The Waves by Virginia Woolf

in review •  4 months ago 

The Waves by Virginia Woolf

The Waves was one of the most difficult novels for me to finish. Woolf really went far as language and overall structure is concerned. What I really admire is the poetic feel I got from reading this book. Virginia Woolf, like Sylvia Plath, was a poet after all.

The Waves centers around the lives and relationships of several children. They eventually age as the story develops. It's not a particularly long novel. The style in which the prose is written is just slow to follow, but I got used to it after a couple of pages.

My Score


The Waves by Virginia Woolf is a complex read, but still a great novel. I loved the generous amount of beautiful descriptions and imagery throughout.

Interesting. I have not read much in the way of Woolf. I think her material was rather heavy wrt to subject matter too. Would you say?

Definitely. I absolutely agree.

I personally haven't read any materials by Virginia Woolf before - because "The Waves" follows the story of 6 different friends, would you say that it gets a bit challenging to follow? Out of curiosity, what about getting into the book - since the book was difficult to finish, did any thoughts of wanting to put the book down ever cross your mind?

Looking forward to reading future posts! You’ve just got a full upvote from us.

It's not too hard to follow. To be quite frank, The Waves kept me hooked regardless of the difficulty of the pace. Thank you very much for the comment and upvote.
