I would strongly advise everyone NOT to read this book for the following three reasons.
1. It is long, plotless, and boring. Seriously, I've never read an author who took more words to say so little. The number of pages covering Mrs. Ramsay's moronic thoughts is truly too great to imagine.
2. ::Spoiler Alert:: They don't actually go to the lighthouse until page 165 and even then it's supposed to have symbolic meaning or some nonsense like that.
3. Virgina Woolf was romantically involved with the McDonald's Hamburglar.
In short, read this book only if you like things that are mind-numbing and miserable.
That is all,
