Book Review: Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

I had to read Mrs. Dalloway for my British Literature class. It's not a very long novel, but it was hard to read because Virginia Woolf writes in the stream of consciousness style (writing the way people think; random thoughts all strung together). It made it hard to follow who's point of view I was reading and transitions were basically nonexistent. The story takes place in one day and jumps from character to character. The different points of views sort of came together at the end, but I am a bit confused as to why some characters were in the story at all. But over all it was an interesting read, and I can add it to my list of Important Books I Have Read.
