waves by virginia woolf

why does it take me so long to read a page sigh i love old novels like this but they really take a while for me to get through and demotivates me
Virginia Woolf was ahead of time she explores complex issues which are being taken up by Psychology and Media and Social Study departments. 'Woolf called it not a novel but a "playpoem". The book explores the role of the "ethos of male education" in shaping public life, and includes scenes of some of the characters experiencing bullying during their first days at school.'

Woolf writes in dramatic soliloquies' and to mention her stream of consciousness or is the later the Light House. These books are a hard to read compared to the modern books about these days. These kinda of book in my personal opinion are nolonger in the normative and don't cater to the frenetic world, the development short attention spans or endemic sufferer of ADHD.

Open your book on Waves and read it alongside as the audiobook plays...

Virginia Woolf reminds me of Dylan Thomas Under Milkwood and James Joyce's Ulysses and Finnegan Wake.

I am glad that my natural curiosity got the better of me because Virginia Woolf is truly wonderful. My next book is The Extinction of Desire by Michael Boylan.
