Mrs. Dalloway (Everyman's Library (Cloth))

Mrs. Dalloway - Virginia Woolf, Nadia Fusini I struggled all the way through with the blending of stream of conciousness and third-person omniscience. It jumps back and forth between characters, to a guy walking down the street, to someone who never even makes an appearance aside from her one random thought. Additionally, each character's thoughts were identical to the next--they were merely the thoughts of Virginia Woolf. The opening scenes were the most interesting and least confusing of the book; after that, it all went downhill for me.
