I'm currently in class right now, waiting to talk about one of the strangest novels I've ever read—Mrs. Dalloway. I've read it before, and it's not really that I don't like it, just… it's such a bizarre novel. It's actually a pretty interesting idea, just the way the author pulls off stream of consciousness is so distracting from the story that it makes it incredibly hard to follow at times. One moment the protagonist is talking about her love interest, the next moment she's talking about gloves.

It doesn't help that it follows the minds of a variety of characters. If any two characters share a thought at immediately the same time, like noticing a plane flying over the city, then that event will be the "bridge" that joins their two thoughts and it will then shift perspective to the new character.

Interesting. It's just a pain in the butt to follow.



Thanks everyone! Feel free to talk amongst yourselves and be sure to check out some of TAY's other great features:
