Since Miss Meshell's recommendation of Virginia Woolf I've read the waves, and so I thought I'd write a bit of a review of it.
I really enjoyed this book. The unusual style of writing makes it a good book for reading slowly, savouring all of it. This is a good thing for me because often I tend to get caught up in books (anyone else suffer from 'one more chapter' syndrome?) and read until the early hours of the morning, before I have to get up for work the next day. I think if you read this all at once, you'd miss out a bit on some of the beautiful imagery, and so it was nice to be almost forced to put the book down before I got overwhelmed with it.
The style of writing also lets you enter the characters minds and also view each character from several different perspectives. I think this is a book which I'll discover more of re-reading.
