To the lighthouse by Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf made me understand, and finally appreciate commas. I used to hate run on sentences, but her writing has flipped me around. She writes in fluid thought. She is in each person's head, and writes sentences that get to the deep truth of the character, in such real and relatable moments. It was hard to read at parts because there is no plot, and you are just swimming to and fro in someones mind.

The book was also filled with a brilliant vocabulary with words like 'valediction' and 'pshawing' popping up at the right times. This was my first Virginia Woolf and I look forward to diving into a few more.
