September Books 8) Mrs Dalloway

8) Mrs Dalloway, by Virginia Woolf

This is very short, but very good. I was pleased (reading the intro to my Penguin edition after I'd read the book) that I spotted the influence of Joyce's Ulysses - but this is much less hard work. I always like the narrative technique of looking at the same events from different perspectives, especially when the author gets the unreliable narrator technique right. Based on this I will look out for more - to my shame, I don't think I had read any Woolf before.
